Do You Remember When We Decided to Write a Book?

Hello! I am really looking forward to my next blogging series! In case you missed it, I asked for all of you that are readers to take a moment and let me know what you'd like for me to write about next! You can do that right here

It seems like forever ago. 

On April 6 of this year, Hannah and I launched a Kickstarter Project to fund our very first book. We named it Restart: A Fresh Perspective on God, Life & Everything. It's a 30-Day Devotional written with high school and college freshman in mind. 

On May 6, we received word that we had raised $2,037 of our $2,000 goal. Our project was funded and we were ecstatic! Now, although we shared quotes via social media from our forthcoming book - we didn't actually have a book yet. 

Well, just a few moments ago in the wee hours of the morning on July 11 and just eight hours before our final draft was due, we finished it. 

I'm nearly speechless. At a few points, it honestly felt like this moment would never come. 

We are so grateful for all of you that cheered us on, gave towards the project and even used your social media influence to create buzz around the release of the book. Thank you.
