In this story of Jesus healing a blind man in Mark 8:22-26, it seems as if this was a two-part miracle where the blind man’s sight was gradually restored. After Jesus lays his hands on the man’s eyes the first time, the man says he can see people but they look like trees walking around. So Jesus places his hands on the man a second time and completes the miracle.
In our own journey as Kingdom Writers, sometimes it seems as though we are seeing things like trees walking around. We don’t always receive the instant clarity that we would like. Like the blind man, Jesus may give us gradual clarity as we continue trusting his methods and timing for our writing.
This story also reminds us that our spiritual journey is a process of sanctification rather than instant maturity or clarity. In the end, we will look back and see God’s perfect plans for our lives.
“Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.” - 1 Corinthians 13:12 (NLT)

When you self-publish or independently publish your book, you need to make the decision about which format you will publish your book in.
Some options include eBook, print, full-color, audiobook, translations, and large print.
It depends on your audience, how well your book is selling, as well as your budget and the time you have to invest.
Learn more about this in today’s episode and also enjoy a case study from Christian Book Academy member, Teresa Mills, who found one particular format has sold better than others for her travel books.

In this episode, Shelley answers this question from Christian Book Academy member, Stephanie...
“How do we balance our author life and regular day-to-day job life? When and how do we know to take the step of quitting our job to move into focusing more on our writing author life? I feel I am not focused enough on writing because of my other job. What do you do?"
We know many of you have full-time jobs and therefore thought this would be a great topic to cover on the podcast. Enjoy!
