to celebrate Breathing Eden–your way

He had me close my eyes and walk into the bedroom. “I have a gift for you. Keep your eyes closed.” I feel my way into the room, fingers extended, and then sit up on the edge of the bed.

“Keep your eyes closed. Listen to me describe it first. This is what I want to tell you.”

“Hear. Write. Speak. The book press is a reminder of the writing work you do together with God–and the importance of it, in His mind. He made you to write–to make physical books and digital goods. And He wants you to know how proud He is of your writing and how happy it makes Him to work alongside you.”

My chest tightens, tears filling my closed eyes.

“Now open them.”

Before me is a book press–black iron, heavy plates. Copies of Breathing Eden pressed in between. These are the words God and I wrote together. The stories He showed me. My attempt to write down the pictures I saw in my mind.

Of this woman. And this woman. Their faces, their hands. Their voices, their prayers.

I did my best, one word at a time, to describe what I saw, to transcribe what I heard them say.

The conversations, though, are just the jumping off place for us, the readers. The conversations are the beginning of our invitation. I pray the conversations in between these women and God make us hungry for light, fresh air, and new things in our own lives.

We know there are conversations God wants to have with us, right now.

Isn’t that awesome?

This Tuesday, it will be six months since the release of Breathing Eden: Conversations with God on Light, Fresh Air, and New Things. (Did you see the new page that tells all about it?) And I want to celebrate this with you! So, I have teamed up with the beautiful and amazing Katie, the founder and artist of Hosanna Revival. Just for us, she created a beautiful, hand-painted journaling Bible, personalized for a Breathing Eden sister.

Isn’t the Bible designed by Hosanna Revival gorgeous?

I am so excited to give away this Bible, along with other prizes–autographed copies of Breathing Eden (to keep or give away!), and two eight by ten canvases designed by the stunning Portland artist, Rachel Jacobson.

So how do you win these awesome prizes? Well, here is the scoop:

In celebration of light and fresh air and new things, we are having a coloring page contest where you get to show off your beautiful designs over on Instagram! To enter the contest is simple.
