Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. (Psalm 145:3)
I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. (Psalm 34:1)

Never did I think I would be an author of a book about praise and worship. About 20 years ago, upon entering this ministry area, God lit a fire under me that is still burning. The more I knew the more I wanted to know. I had been a musician for most of my life, but God began to show me that there is so much more to praise and worship than just great music; He showed me in the Word of God why praise, worship, and music don’t always come in the same package. Neither praise nor worship is about a great song; they are about what is in your heart. You can sing beautifully, and still have a heart that is devoid of a relationship with Jesus Christ.

As we experience difficult situations in our lives we sometimes ask ourselves, “What reason do I have to keep praising God while I’m going through such a terrible time?” You have EVERY reason! Not only are you under divine mandate to praise Him, but God will always deserve our praise. It might take a change in perspective.

Praising God

My first book, At All Times, was birthed from the belief that no matter what we go through in life the praises of God are always in order. I wanted to change hearts and thought processes concerning praising God. In the chapter, God Has Given Us Weapons: Are You Using Yours? the point is made that one of the weapons we have against the enemy is our praise! In 2 Chronicles chapter 20 King Jehoshaphat and the nation of Judah praised God on their way to what they thought was a battlefield. Instead, what they found were the dead bodies of their enemies! Why? Because God moved in their praises and destroyed the enemy.

In the chapter, Praising God Ahead of Schedule, you will discover you don’t have to wait until God manifests the answer to your prayer. When you praise God BEFORE your prayer is answered it is an incredible act of faith! It says to God, “I trust You to handle this situation for me. Thank You, Jesus!” Psalm 138:8 speaks to us, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me: your mercy, O Lord, endures forever. . .” That’s a good reason to praise Him ahead of schedule.

Self-Publishing with WestBow Press

My self-publishing experience was incredibly rewarding. I learned how important it is to choose a publisher who really understands your vision, and will not water down your message. The assistance and mentoring I received from Westbow Press were invaluable. The consultant assigned to me every step of the process was professional, prompt in responding to my questions, and patient during the editing process. My biggest challenge as a self-published author is marketing. Along the way, I have met people more knowledgeable than I am, and have certainly heeded their wisdom. Early on, I was told that having a book is your business card to get you into various places. I have since learned that my book is not my business card; it is my business, and that is how I began to approach it!

Writing a book is a very large investment of time and resources. But it has been exceptionally rewarding to have written two books now on what I am most passionate about – praise and worship training and development.

Journey to Self-Publishing

The Journey

After diligently seeking God for four years, in 2016 the Lord laid it upon my heart to write and share His word with others. At first, my response was, “Uhh, are you sure you want me to write?!” Not in a million years would I have ever thought of writing, let alone think of trying to get a book published for others to read. Why would I, a nobody, be one called by God to write Christian books? The Lord has His ways of working in our lives, and I’m glad I heeded my calling. Not only was it revealed to me what to write about, I also received the inclination of future books to write as well.

Growing Closer to Him

While I was in the process of writing my first book, I felt excitement, joy, and peace. I knew that it was only because of God, that I was able to feel such a way for pursuing the journey He called me to walk. This was the way forward for me to step into my role of discipleship. Not only did I find my enjoyment during my journey with God on this project, but I grew much closer to Him. My relationship with Him grew to a deeper level of intimacy. He is my Father, and as such, He has my heart.

Once I had completed the first project, I had submitted the works to my editors. I started to feel that my works were not worthy of being published in the public eye. I began feeling that what I just accomplished would have no positive impact for our King and His kingdom. However, my editing team helped me to realize that the work I did was a good start for God and heaven. They helped me understand that the negative perceptions in my head were attacks brought forth by the devil himself. After understanding that, I knew I had to press on and move the book to a publishing company if I wanted to complete the good works on behalf of our Creator.

Searching for the Right Publisher

When I was researching self-publishing companies, I had narrowed down my list to three candidates. After much time praying and considering my options, I had placed calls with each company. Not only did I get to know a little more about each company, each company had their perks. It was WestBow Press that stood out from the bunch and laid heavily on my heart to proceed with. I felt that trying to reach out with my first ever book, a Christian piece of work at that, I needed the backing of a strong Christian publishing company.

Publishing with WestBow Press

After deciding to publish with WestBow Press, it was quick and easy to start the process. The whole team did great work on the project and their design staff exceeded my expectations for the book. From start to finish, sending the book live, was a breeze. The team made every step of the publishing process very easy for me. Each representative for the different phases was professional and courteous. WestBow Press was and is the best fit for my book. I could not be any happier with the results. I look forward to working with the WestBow Press publishing team on my writing endeavors in the near future.

Letting Go of an Orphan Spirit

Our greatest desire is Love. This is something that all of us search for. We aspire to feel wanted, accepted, valued and cared for. We are each born with an orphan spirit that yearns to obtain these deepest needs and desires of the heart. This orphan spirit suggests that we are alone, unwanted, abandoned, unloved, and Fatherless. Many of us turn to earthly sources as a means to fill this emptiness in our souls, only to discover further depletion of our self-worth. So where do we turn when the well runs dry?
The Good News is that we do not have to live our lives this way. We can abandon our orphan mentality and grab hold of Love itself. Jesus is the wellspring of Life promising to uphold us for all eternity!

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
John 14:18

Taking Hold of the Father’s Hand

We have a Heavenly Father that is reaching out to us from above. He longs for us to look up at Him and take hold of His hand in faith, obedience, and trust. He invites us to receive Him as our loving Father and Savior, bringing about our adoption into sonship. Upon this exchange, we are transformed as we learn to let go of our pasts, brokenness, emptiness, and shame, and take hold of our true identity, purpose, and inheritance as sons and daughters of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Discovering this Truth changes the course of our lives and sets us on a path of freedom, peace, and joy as we follow Jesus towards the promise of a blessed life.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
Romans 8:14

WestBow Press Is Leading the Children of God

We are not called to live alone as orphans. We are called to live in His Kingdom and walk with God as His children whom He has adopted and loved. We are then to share the love of our Father with others, inviting them to receive this inheritance for themselves. This is who we are as Children of God- followers of Jesus called to share His message of the good news with the world.

WestBow Press is helping me become the child of God I was created to be, by developing an opportunity to send out my personal invitation of The Father’s Love to others. It has opened a pathway for many people to hear my story, and to receive His message of Love.

On my own, my message would not have traveled far, but with the guidance of my Father’s hand, and the reach of WestBow Press, my message is making its pilgrimage across the world.

WestBow is an extension of the Lord’s hand reaching out to God’s children in the wilderness and leading them throughout their publishing journey. WestBow Press offers the assurance that we, as messengers of Christ, are not compelled to walk alone. The good news is that we have the privilege of turning towards WestBow Press, taking hold of its commitment to become our faithful guide, and trusting in its ability to direct us throughout this adventure.
Personally, I am so thankful for WestBow Press and all they have done to help lead the children of God towards reaching their promised potential in the land of writing.

For I am the LORD your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
Isaiah 41:13

Given Up

In this space, WestBow Press publishes articles written by our authors in which they share some aspect of their self-publishing journey. The following blog is from Mary Sharon Bailey, author of “Given Up.” For more information on the author visit her website. To begin your self-publishing journey, get a free WestBow Press publishing guide today.

My Story

Given Up is an autobiographical account of my adoption at the age of 6 weeks and then the search for and finding my birth family when I was 30. I am now 69 and knew that it was the time to get my story in print because of the fact that there is just so much in the media these days concerning adoption and finds.

Many people who have read the book have been extremely encouraged by stating that it was a book that they could not put down until finished. As it is a quick read of only 135 pages, it is good that to be able to read the whole story in one sitting in order to keep it flowing well. Otherwise, some might have the need to re-read some parts to understand the whole process of my search again.

Spreading My Story

As the author of the book Given Up, I have been on quite the journey of talking and book signing at different events. As my book is classified as Christian, I have been doing many talks in church within a 200-kilometer radius of my home. I set up all of the talks myself by doing cold calls to churches and also libraries. As the Christmas season of 2017 ended, I reflected on all of the craft shows that I signed up for and attended also. I have discovered that in order to sell my book, I need to personally be out in the public constantly advertising my book. A very big task that any self-publishing author needs to be aware of if they wish to have their book go worldwide such as what I have intended regarding my book from the start.

If there is anyone reading this blog that may have some questions, I would be more than happy to answer what I can. My domain page concerning the book is www.msharonbailey.com if there is interest to learn more.

Overcoming My Fear of the Publishing Process

Finding the Inspiration

The inspiration for my book came from my own personal struggle with navigating the holidays in the midst of loss, relationship challenges, the stress of expectations, and general holiday stress. It led me to share my journey through those times and the hope I have discovered in the process. I know I am not alone in my struggle. My hope is to reach those who share similar challenges and emotions. I want to provide hope and a renewed joy for the Christmas season.

Finding My Way with WestBow

Once the book was written, I felt stuck and unable to move forward.  due to my lack of knowledge about the entire publishing process. Thankfully, I discovered Westbow Press through a fellow author. Westbow has helped me every step of the way. They have been very gracious to address and answer my naive questions and concerns. I felt very supported by them at every turn in the process. They made this publishing journey so easy and provided the feedback and help I needed to complete the process.

I have been very pleased with the finished product of my book. They did a fantastic job and helped to create a book that I hope will reach many and provide healing and hope.

Press On

In this space, WestBow Press publishes articles written by our authors in which they share some aspect of their self-publishing journey.

“For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in a demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” I Corinthians 2:2-5 KJV

Guided by God’s Strength

The joy that I felt at the beginning of my writing process quickly evolved into a burden. Each day I struggled to find time to give to prayer, study, and writing. My eagerness, commitment and desire to follow through with the vision in my heart began to falter. Truly I was a weakened vessel, doubting at times if the labor the Lord had given me would ever come to pass.

But on the days that I allowed God’s strength to guide me, I was completely overwhelmed by His presence. Some days all I could do was pray. Other days I would squeak out only one paragraph. Countless hours were spent meditating on what the Lord was wanting me to write. However, every time I followed through by either just being still enough to listen or to sit down with my Bible and computer the Lord would intervene and provide exactly what was needed at the time.

Published with God’s Help

It was at these times that I felt unexplainably grateful that God would use me to be a vessel for Him. The words He was giving me would give glory to Jesus. After two years of battling, I finally submitted #Winning to WestBow Press. I was completely ecstatic that the manuscript was turned in; not because I had hopes of making a bestseller list, but because I could live in peace knowing that I had completed the work that the Lord had given me. I could close out that chapter of my life accepting that I had glorified God simply because I was obedient to His will.

Press On

I have shared this to encourage those that are experiencing struggles within their own writing process. If you are writing because the Lord has laid it on your heart, then I can guarantee that the process won’t be easy. But I can also promise that seeing the finished product will most definitely be worth your perseverance. Remind yourself that even in your weakness God is willing to strengthen you for His glory. You will never regret giving to the world what the Lord has given to you.

writingFind the Joy in Writing

If you want to be a writer, aside from perseverance and persistence, you should never write just to make money. Writing should bring you joy. The challenge for me is getting it right, what you want to say does not always go onto paper as easily as you think it should. Make every effort to keep your story interesting, i.e. don’t tell your story show it. Show it in dialogue, action words, and descriptive scenes kept short, sweet and to the point. Don’t overload with adjectives and don’t blather on or people will close your book. Develop your characters –even if your book is about your own life.

Why I Started Writing

I never read books until I was a bride at 21, and we had no television. I never thought or dreamed of writing a book, but the Good Lord had plans otherwise. My inspiration came from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice story when A & E made it into a movie. My husband enjoyed watching it with me and when it was over, he said, “What happens after that?”

Jane Austen never wrote past the wedding, so I decided I would help her along and make up my own story. My first 20 pages were horrible. I had no experience in writing fiction, but I had done some technical writing, and therefore believed I could tell a story. After much writing and rewriting and rearranging scenes, I eventually learned to show my story in dialogue and character building.

My Writing Tips

One very important thing to remember for those who want to write is to just sit down and do it. Don’t worry about outlines in the beginning simply or with difficulty write your first paragraph on the page. When I began writing there was no inwritingternet. I went to the library all the time. Once you start writing, even your first page, then you can do some research. Fiction does not require as much as non-fiction, but it will need some, especially if it is historical fiction. In the beginning, you may want to try an outline for your thoughts but don’t be tied to it. Don’t be surprised if your characters and storyline take on a life of its own. Go with it but don’t be afraid to delete and rewrite.

Be prepared to change things around, rewrite, proof, rewrite, and changes things over and over until you get it right. Your first novel should not be more than a maximum of 100,000 words. If it is more than that, you are saying too much, which is common for beginners.

Join a writers group, preferably a Christian group, and never, never, never let anyone other than a writers group member read your work, even then choose carefully. Family members are the worst, and friends, too, for giving you free advice, wanting to rewrite your story for you or give you unneeded criticism.

Needless to say, it can be very discouraging and even cause you to put your book down for good. Some people may offer to proofread it for you, but instead will rewrite if for you, and if that is the case they probably are not good at catching errors but are busy telling you what you should say differently, a good editor can do that. Read your story over many times, pare it down, make sure it is interesting, well written and has a good storyline.

He Who Has Called You Is Faithful, He Will Do It

In this space, WestBow Press publishes articles written by our authors in which they share some aspect of their self-publishing journey. The following blog is from LeAnn Petterson, author of “The Me Only I Get to Be.” For more information on the author visit her website and Facebook. To begin your self-publishing journey, get a free WestBow Press publishing guide today.

Choosing WestBow Press

GodSome have said the greatest two days in our lives are the day we are “born again”, and the day we find out why. As a new author, I would invite anyone “sitting on the fence” to fulfill God’s purpose for you through publishing his word. Your book may be the very tool God chooses to accomplish his purposes.

I chose WestBow Press to publish my book because of their open commitment to works of Christian authors. In addition to WestBow’s affiliation with Thomas Nelson and Zondervan publishers. All believers are given different gifts at the time of their new birth. The motivational gift I received was that of exhortation (Romans 12:6-8). As such, my whole person seeks to give support, reference hope, and promote faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Peter 4:10-11). Thus, writing my book fell into line with the “me” the Maker created me to be. Why am I surprised when God chooses to use my book to implement his further purposes? Yet, I am reverently amazed!

He Who Has Called You is Faithful (I Thessalonians 5:24)

I believe God called me to write my book. His Word promised that he would faithfully achieve his purposes through my obedience. So, I put aside the hesitations and fears, and took my first step toward accomplishing this aspect of his will for my life.

He Will Do It (I Thessalonians 5:24)

The resulting obedience provided me with unimagined platforms from which I’ve been able to represent God. He has opened doors to accomplish all he purposed for my book; I’m cooperative, but he is “doing it.”

How Unsearchable Are His Ways (Romans 11:33)

Children:

Doors of the public schools welcomed me as I read my book to multiple assemblies of Kindergarten through third graders. In their letters of thanks to me, students acknowledged that not everyone is the same, and that it’s okay to be “myself.” I saw this as a good “footing” upon which third graders could construct a Godly identity; identities in the process of being established.

Adults:

GodAlthough classified as a children’s book, “The Me Only I Get to Be”, spans across the age continuum. God has used it to affect groups of children and adults, as well as to minister to individuals. Technology made it easy to read the book to a women’s church group. This included an assignment of “Pairing and Sharing” as women read aloud God’s scriptural Word as to the truth of who God claimed they were in Christ Jesus; identities being reclaimed.

I was also blessed to witness the effect my book had upon a young woman whose husband had just given her notice of his leaving the marriage commitment. While reading the book aloud for the first time, she broke into tears…however not for herself. She mentioned her gratitude for all with which God continued to bless her. Her focus shifted from what she had not, to all that God faithfully continued to provide.

Please, Please, move forward into that purpose for which you were created. You may never realize the blessings your obedience will acquire if you don’t take that first step in faith.

Publishing with WestBow Press

I think my idea for a book came from the result of journaling for 20 years ever since my son took his life back in 1995. That Christ placed a certain peace about his suicide amessagend that I needed to capture what was happening and eventually get it into book form.

WestBow Press, I would say was just the right publisher at the right time. My desire to get my message out in book form. I believe God had a hand in all.

They encouraged me much through the process of editing and through their e-mails and phone calls. I never lost sight of my goal to finally get my message out in book form. Their high standards as to potential libel even helped me to forgive someone from 30 years back, who I thought caused the death of my wife. I actually wrote another chapter in my book as the result.

All-in-all it was a very good experience to finally get my message out in book form. I am presently writing another book from all the encouragement provided to me by WestBow Press.

All Faith, No Fear

Facing Your Fear

All Faith, No FearFear and faith, two things that don’t mix. One can’t exist if the other is present. In the midst of trial and tribulation we don’t fold, break or clamor. Not because we are confident in our own efforts or strengths but we trust in that of the Lord. One thing that I have aspired to be is “fearless.” Not meaning I don’t feel afraid but I recognize that those feelings are false.

God tells us to be strong and courageous, to not be afraid or discouraged but why? Doesn’t God know that it’s not easy being strong, especially when things around you aren’t going as you planned. It’s not easy to be courageous when you feel unsure. Feelings are fickle and we can’t give in to them. We have to trust in what we know to be true. So he commands us to be brave because he know that he is with us and with him we cannot fail.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -Josh 1:9

 Having Faith

What is there to fear when the perfect father is holding your All Faith, No Fearhand, walking with you every step of the way. He’s wanting to lead you and guide you to live out the perfect purpose that he has for your life. Now the only thing that can short circuit us from experiencing the very best that God has for us is fear. Fear tries to hinder us from taking steps of faith.

Faith is not just believing for something to happen. It’s that belief pushing you to take the necessary actions to see those dreams and aspirations come to pass. The root of all feelings of inadequacy, failure, discouragement is fear. That little four letter word tries to keep us stuck, stagnant and bound living half empty when we should always be on full. Only we can allow fear to cripple us, it’s a choice. There is great purpose, skill and yet fulfilled success that lies within us. The only thing that can stop us from fulfilling that is fear. Don’t allow it to hinder you from experience the best that God has for you.

Losing a Loved One

God gave me a testimony to share with hundreds and thousands of individuals and one day, millions. I lost my daughter on February 5, 2017 after twenty-nine weeks and one day of pregnancy. Westbow Press changed my life and helped me through publishing my story, 29 Weeks and 1 Day.  I hope my book changes and saves the lives, hopes, dreams, and self-esteem of others. Experiencing the loss of a loved one can strip anyone down to the unknown and the unthinkable but with God, hearts can be healed and comforted out of the deepest thoughts and acts of depression.

My Journey with WestBow Press

WestBow walked me through every stage of my journey through consistent feedback, weekly check-ins via email and phone.

WestBow Press will:

Work with you throughout the entire process,
Exhibit your work,
Support your vision,
Talk you through your comments and questions,
Better your story through expertise editors,
Offer you top-notch support and assistance, and
Wait patiently for you to move through your own writing process.

Growing with WestBow Press

Pressing forward with WestBow Press was an opportunity for me to grow as a person, a writer, and an author. The loss of my child was devastating. I needed to write and wanted to publish my first book. I wanted to share how I decided to overcome and not be buried in hopelessness and depression. It was an opportunity for me to heal and allow my story to heal and help others. I was given the time I need to really select a publishing company that would bring my vision to life. I was never rushed or pushed into making a quick decision. WestBow Press left an impression on not only my heart but the hearts of many others who or am experiencing some type of pain from a loss.

Changing Lives

My book 29 Weeks and 1 Day has begun to change lives of many others. It has reached individuals who suffer from depression due to loss since that impacts many people. My story gives hope that even in the darkest and lowest points of life you can always get up and get out if you activate just a little faith. God can and will do the rest. After publishing, I received inspiring messages on how my book took people living in depression to fighting to climb out. WestBow Press took my vision and perfected it. I initially didn’t believe I would make it through the process and at times wanted to quit. WestBow Press walked me through the entire process from start to finish and then beyond the finish. I am extremely satisfied, thankful, and grateful to become a first time published author through WestBow Press.
