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 Proof – Keeping 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 Meaningful – Finding 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.
- Aborting – Killing 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.
