Friends come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and colors. I was reading a devotion last year from a respected author, bible teacher, and pastor. The article encouraged those in ministry to cherish the people who come alongside them to help on their journey.
He stated that people come and go in your life and ministry and not get too discouraged when that happens. He encouraged not to get down but to press forward in doing God's will.
Even though it is my name on the cover of my books, it has taken a village of people to help me get to this point in my writing career. (Many of whom I consider friends.) Going back over ten years, I thank God for those who have helped me, supported and encouraged me, and continue to pray for me.
I wait with anticipation to see God's leading for my new book. I had a new idea this past week, and I am praying for wisdom.
The Furnace of Affliction would not have been possible without the help of a dear friend calling 911 and God's intervention. I pray that you are encouraged and inspired to find your purpose in reading this book.

Another friend came into my office. I had gotten off the phone with her a few moments earlier, and she was concerned because I sounded funny. I thought she was teasing me, but she dialed 9-1-1 right away when she realized something was terribly wrong; she probably helped saved my life.
