I just finished reading “To Everything a Season”, and I wanted to leave you a comment somehow. I got the book as a gift from my Uncle, who I love very much, some time ago. I am currently 22 weeks pregnant. About 3 days ago I felt like the Lord really wanted me to read it NOW. To be honest, I didn’t really want to, I am depressed having separated from my husband a month ago, and having another 3 year old “gift from God”, I was just not motivated and tried to choose any other book on my shelf. Finally I faced reality that the enemy was trying to distract me from something God might want to really show me through your book. So I picked it up and opened it. My Uncle had you sign it, and I looked over the inscription “For Amy” you wrote. So I opened it up. Each opportunity I had to read it I could not put it down. If it wasn’t for my sweet 3 year old having an immediate need, I would’ve read it in one sitting. Although I admit, after my first reading, I was like what God? Why do you want me to read this when I’m 22 weeks pregnant? I see the significance though. I am in one of those dark times, I need that hope like Kristyn and William learned about, and I need to continually see the amazing blessing of a little baby growing inside me. I just wanted to say something because your book affected me in a positive and powerful way. Thank you. I know I am not the only one that has been and will be moved by your writing, and the story of Kristyn. So I just wanted you to know, and I just wanted to say thank you.
Hey Amy… just read your beautiful message this morning… years later… and realized that I need to get back into my blogging mode. Your words have inspired me again. Thank you. I trust that your “gift from God” continues to bring you joy and fulfillment… even in the sometimes overwhelming stresses that accompany parenthood. Blessings! Ken
