Have you heard?!

The Five Minute Friday BOOK is officially available!

Can you even believe it?

I’m still riding the wave of excitement since it released on Monday.



It’s been so much fun to revel in the joy with so many of you as you’ve shared the news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and your blogs. Thank you for helping us to spread the word!

As I mentioned on Monday, all proceeds from the book are going to two different ministries in South Africa!

So when you make a purchase, not only are you getting a beautiful collection of writing from more than 100 different writers, you’re also supporting a great cause!

I used to prefer working alone.

You know, I figured I could just do things my way and whenever mistakes were made, I knew who to blame.

But over the past few years, I’ve come to see the beauty of collaboration. Of working as a team.

There’s a deep satisfaction and a sense of unity that comes with linking arms with others and working together toward a common goal.

I like to think that serving as a group brings much glory to God. We’re all one body, after all. When we put our minds and gifts together, a magnificent masterpiece begins to form.

I’ve seen this happen with the birth of the Five Minute Friday book.

It started with one woman’s idea, and just look at the end result — over 150 writers in one collection.

In my opinion, this book is a true reflection of what Five Minute Friday is all about — a diverse group of people with unique stories and gifts, coming together in a common purpose: a love for the written word.

The finished product radiates the diversity and unity found in the body of Christ.

And I’m so honored to be part of it.
