Kindle First Free eBook Preview Lending Library

Updated on May 17, 2014

Amazon Prime Kindle Owner's Free Preview

I am officially a published writer. This page is about my adventure. If you are a writer or a reader, going through any challenge in life (loss, pain, disappointment,or discouragement) I hope this page will give you inspiration and hope. The fact I have published at all is a miracle. I have been a virtual assistant for many years and actually helped others publish their work (My eBook VA), but my own was always a work in progress. This time was different for many reasons. Most of, if not all of the reasons,were God's Grace.

I was so excited to learn about the free lending library for Amazon Prime members who own the Kindle. The lending library is a great way to sample a new author or read a book before you buy it, If you primarily read on your Kindle instead of physical books this is a great time to start. That is because my first devotional is ready. I am so excited to be a part of the lending library so more people have the opportunity to read and let me know or do book reviews.

The best part is I found a free trial (30 days) which means you could read the whole book for free before the trial ends.

My Adventure in Writing!

A little about how this all happened.

I didn't have writing a book on my task list. It was on my long term goals for a long time. I actually have a few started books, but these books were the result of a coping skill for a change in my life which I didn't know if I would emotionally survive it. Then the survival issue became physical.

The Devotional Journal Series Isn't My Story I have a started book about all of the circumstances and situations, but, this isn't it. This is focused on the insights and prayers, meditations and supplications, which I found answers to. I have a feeling (based on comments and feedback I have received over the months this was in progress) this is the part which can help others and touch their lives the most.

The solutions are thoughts to spark your own knowing. The designs are prayers without words to put you in touch with your own heart's prayers. The Bible verses are not literally connected with the thoughts for the day, but, they give you a place to open the Bible, which is in itself for some the only step it takes to begin a lifelong relationship with the living word.

"The Bible verses are not literally connected with the thoughts for the day, but, they give you a place to open the Bible, which is in itself for some the only step it takes to begin a lifelong relationship with the living word."

I believe the past several months were the biggest challenge in my life. I am grateful I realized I needed to work within the process of healing (mind, body, spirit, and emotion) through art, prayer, meditation, and taking care of myself. The main goal I had was to restore my faith. My response to loss was to become depressed and to sense a separation from God.

I thought God had left me to deal with the worst situation of my life alone. My faith was shattered. I needed to find a way to restore my faith so I could then reconnect consciously with God again. The result of creating prayers mandalas (over 3000 of them so far) during my prayer and meditation time, letting go of all the negative thoughts (writing them down, talking to someone about them, striving to see a different perspective of the problem), and allowing the process while listening to what I needed (rest, nutrition, exercise, creative time, fellowship, and study).

Freedom of Spirit Through Hard Work - The process of grief has required I surrender what I think should be...

I have been blessed to have a remarkable fellowship of friends (online, offline, and virtual friends such as authors). It is remarkable how my network has been growing over time little by little and was in place right when I have needed it time after time. I'm not sure how the big picture looks at times, but, when I am helping others and they are helping me there are a lot of miracles under way.

When I have grave problems to deal with I have noticed the most encouragement and inspiration comes. There are times when the people who deliver these messages of hope are unaware of the impact they are having in my struggle. I do try to let people know about their positive influence in my life. But, there are times when that isn't possible or I don't know until much later and am unable to 'find' them again to thank them.

One step at a time I am again experiencing God's peace and joy. The situation didn't suddenly go back to what I had hoped it would stay, but, the loss makes more sense today and my ability to move on is stronger. I am free to move to the next chapter of my life and look back occasionally with a sense that the worst thing that happened has in some way blessed me and hopefully others who I can offer inspiration and hope as it was given to me along the way.
