I Need YOUR Vote

I (robin) have been studying and praying and writing and thinking a lot about a book I feel I should write.  As you can tell from that sentence, I will need a good editor.

All the steps I have been through has brought be to three basic ideas or angles for the book.  I would like your input on two things.  Which book would you personally be more interested in reading?  (you are not committing to buying a book by participating in this poll.)  Also, I would like your thoughts on which book would appeal to the rest of the population.  In other words, you might think that your opinion is different or the same as the rest of the world.

All three book concepts are centered around our experience with our daughter, Kennady.  The story behind her diagnosis, life with special needs, our faith, and pastoring our church will make up the basis of the book.

The first two options are two different angles on the same basic premise.  The third one is a lot different:

Three Book Ideas

  • Bullet ProofKeeping the faith after life kicks your ButtHelping people remain full of faith even after a terrible life situation.  We will map out our story of Kennady from diagnosis to daily life and how maintaining faith is a marathon.  There is always uncertainty.  However, there can be a place of safety.
  • Made MeaningfulFinding Purpose in the PainEven though Kennady was born with intense special needs she was made by God and He had a divine meaning behind her condition.  This book would help people find divine meaning when bad things happen to people.
  • AbortingKilling the Pro-Life StereotypeThough most Christians believe abortion is wrong, we only hear about weird or violent people stand up against it.  Older generations seem apathetic.  The newer generation is very activist oriented, yet, most seemed bent on helping out all over the world except in our own backyard. This book will help bridge the gap between believers and the brokenness of abortion.  Our story of being given the option of abortion and Kennady’s special needs helps make the case.

    I Need YOUR Vote!

  2. I would be honored to edit your book. I have edited one other book as well as several text books. My degree and specialty is in reading.

  3. The reason I personally chose Bullet Proof is because we have times in our life where we have doubts about God and faith. I believe you would do a great service to address these doubts and help put in prospective why we must not lose our faith. May God bless you in what ever path you chose to write about.

  4. Me personally I think about finding purpose in any pain. After major accident, I always believed that pain could not get worse but can get much better. Knowing things can get better makes me happy, Thank You God !!!!

  5. They say (and I agree), Write about what you know. Your experience and your testimony is incredible. I’d like to through a suggestion in the mix. Two things. 1. If you don’t love writing, consider having a ghost writer or someone to help you (me! me!! with hand raised….seriously, if you need help, I’m not the greatest writer on earth but I love reading and would help). 2. Have you and Erica considered writing something together? It would be really interesting to see both of your experiences and testimonies side by side. Even though you went through it together, your experiences may have been very different. Just a thought! I’m looking forward to reading whatever you write.

  6. I struggled a little with the answer to what the general public would like. I do think a bigger audience would like “Keeping the Faith..” but I also think there’s an audience for “Killing the Stereotype.” From my own experience, there are times that I want to be more vocal or hands-on about issues, but I don’t necessarily know how to go about it.

    On a separate note, I think anything you write is going to be well worth reading. Thank you for being in tune and letting God work through you.

  7. Good thoughts, Casey. I wanted to get your opinion specifically because I know how much of a passion writing is for you. I would love for Erica to co-write with me, but since she is so involved with school I don’t foresee her being able to contribute a lot. I think she can offer snippets here and there.

I want to hear from you! Let's hear it....ready....GO!!!
