One of My Favorite People

O.k. One of my favorite people, whom I have never met, is about to give birth to a book! And he is a man... so giving birth is even more miraculous for him!! (Italics added in case you don't "get it".)

Andrew Peterson is writing (hopefully) an adventure series for young adults: The Wingfeather Saga (Go to #5 on the page). I am very excited about this because he is so completely spot on in terms of his heart for God and how he is able to convey that... yet he is real as well... not off in the clouds somewhere where things only go "so deep". He also, at least in his songs, conveys a wonderful, masculine boy life... and as the mother of a 10-year-old boy... I can tell you resources are few and far between (that are not already dead).

So, I trust him that his books will be good and will hopefully bring living stories to kids and they might not even know it!! That's the best kind; where you have to wonder if the writer loves God because he did not hit you over the head with Jesus every second, yet your hope wakes up that maybe there is a "place" where things are (will be) as they were meant to be.

Andrew, you will probably never read this, but I am rooting for you and praying for you and as a fellow lover of words and music; I bless the gift God has given you and pray he sustains you and yours as you pour out that gift.
