Often seed ideas feel like they are nestled in the most unusual places

I have book and article ideas swimming in my head, and numerous files started on my laptop. No matter what I’m physically doing–be it walking, gardening, reading, or taking time off with family–I am thinking about writing. The two biggies I’m working on right now are: a Divorce Recovery book and a Revelation Bible Study entitled “Good News for Overcomers.” I hope to have both out by spring of 2020.

My goal for the divorce recovery book is to give hope to women going through the trauma of divorce. Each woman’s story is different, yet we go through the same process of healing. My story is woven into each chapter as I come alongside my sisters in pain and address the steps to recovery. Some of those stages are feelings of abandonment, anger, fear, figuring out how to be single, how to parent children who are also hurting (and not always very nice), the need for community, how to figure out if you’re ready (or want) to start dating, the joys and pitfalls of remarriage, and using the comfort you have received to comfort others.

The Revelation Bible study is very application oriented. We’ve been working through it in my Sunday morning small group for about two years now (we have a LOT of meaty discussion!) and it has been amazing! I have learned so much in my own study for this book and the comments of those in our group has solidified my joy and excitement to offer this book to others.

I am also trying to keep up with a weekly blog post, submitting a short piece (devotion or article) every week, and teaching material for upcoming retreats and ministry.

I love what I do! I hope you will stay tuned for more news on The Writing Life of Beth Vice.
