An Update – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Jun 252007
 

Life has been busy. I heard back from the editor on my book proposal, Spiritual Direction 101, and she liked it. She has passed it onto the review board. If they okay it, I will be writing the book. I should know in a couple of weeks. I’m working on finishing the first draft of my novel right now. I have found that mornings are better for writing and moving on to other things in the afternoon. I wrote ten pages this morning at Cafe Mediterra.

I feel that God is calling me to plant a Nazarene church in the Downtown/Loop area. I’ve talked with the District Superintendent, and the district has plans to plant a church here in the next year or two. It will probably be closer to two years, so I will continue to attend Northside and more than likely go on staff there for the time being.

After I finish the first draft of the novel, I would also like to get Career Women of the Bible worked into a book proposal and start looking for an agent. I’ve thought about trying to continue to research freelance markets and write short pieces, but I just don’t want to. It’s so much work, for so little return. If I think of an idea that would work for a publication, I’ll pitch it, but I’d rather spend time on the books. And now it’s time to exercise then get dinner on. I hope everyone has a good week. What are you up to?

    Peace and blessings

  2. Shawna,

    Wow! Planting a new church? The area is certainly ripe for it. But it is hard, hard work. Especially if your governing body has communication issues. I have been through that. I have just resigned from my apostolic ministry of church planting (for reasons other than the lack of ecclesial support). I would be very glad to share my experiences with you. And I have a ton of demographic info on the South Loop area I would be willing to share. Let’s get together again soon…

    Oh, blessings to you. You have my prayers and my support. This is a very exciting time, and I have no doubt that God will use you in amazing ways.

  3. Great! This is so impressive!

    Cheers…

  4. Rachel, yes I do want to get together.

    Mary Beth and Sally–thank you!
