A Dream Lives. Never Give Up #Hope.

Dreams take a lot of hard work, patience and faith.


7 years ago God unearthed an old dream to write a book, and He gave me the topic.

6 years ago I started writing it.

5 years ago I started pitching it at writers conferences.

3 years ago a friend told me my dream was an idol.

And I buried it for awhile.

But the ache to write wouldn’t go away and neither would Mary. 

So, today I’m excited to announce (for those of you who don’t know) that this once buried dream (planted seed) is blooming!

The contract is still in the works, so I can’t give all the details yet, but A Mary Like Me has found a home!

This week I’m writing the last chapter, editing, and doing all those things I need to do to get the manuscript ready for the publisher. My deadline is coming quickly–only a week away.

Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for reading. Thank you for believing in this dream with me. I pray this encourages you to never give up.

(Friday I’ll post an excerpt from the newest chapter.)

Grateful for you,

  1. Rejoicing with you, Andy!! I feel like an Auntie to your baby. 🙂 It is hard sometimes to wait and God is not in a hurry. Because His message is for His time and His way for His people. Trusting with you in the journey–and excited to see Mary in print.

  2. Yay – so much congratulations is coming to you from me:) Watching your process and progress is extremely encouraging and inspiring. I’ve been wanting to read Mary for the longest time and can’t wait until the day is finally here. I’ll be praying for you heavily over the next week friend!

  3. Couldn’t be happier!!! I remember reading the first pages … tucking them into my green folder, re-reading them over and over. Congratulations !!! <3

  4. I’m happy for you and your future readers. The reality of pursuing writing and being published requires holding on to the dream passionately plus hard work. Dreaming requires doing. And you have done the work.

  5. I’m excited for your Andy. That’s wonderful. Glad to know that I’m not the only one who has been on this journey for years but still hanging in there. Look forward to hearing more details!
