Wellspring Writers Midwifery

The birth of a baby fascinates me. Birth is miraculous, breath taking, and a whole lot of work. That's why we call it labor. I've often thought about becoming a midwife, but to be honest I like regular sleep. Midwifery hours stink. So I write instead.

This past few weeks I feel like a midwife, because one of our Wellspring Writers, Nancy Swihart, is having a book published! It's almost as exciting as when a friend has a baby. I've helped her labor through this whole delivery, and I have the privilege of hosting her launch party May 27th.
Seeing her ad on Amazon felt like watching the a baby's head crown.

I feel privileged to be part of Wellspring Writers. It's a small, multi generational group of talented, productive writers. Together we write for the glory of God, and sharpen each other as iron sharpens iron. Together we birth books. Our labors are longer (months verses hours), but the hours are way more manageable!

If you're anywhere near me I hope you'll join us for this special delivery, Saturday, May 27th, at the Swihart's barn 3681 Kitten Creek Road, Keats, Kansas. 2-pm-5pm Nancy will be selling and signing copies of her baby. Weather permitting, you'll be blessed with the opportunity to stroll along the same paths around the farm that inspired Nancy's story. You can get her book here.

Buy it! Read it! I loved hearing this story, and I think you will too!
