During a recent trip to Atlanta I had a chance encounter of the most wonderful kind.
After visiting with a group of young women and men in ministry, one of the women said to me, “I read your book, Woman In The Pulpit. I take the train to work every day. I have to tell you this! Woman in the Pulpit was so engrossing that I read past my train stop. When I looked up, I looked around. I couldn’t believe that I had missed getting off at my stop. I never miss my stop! But, that morning I did.”
I had hoped my story would touch people to their core. But I am also pleased to know that a reader was so fascinated with the story that it kept her engaged long past her designated train stop.
She continued, “I got off at the next stop and had to take the next train back. My only excuse for being late was to admit that I had been so engrossed in a book that I had totally ridden past my stop. I was a little embarrassed until everybody wanted to know what I was reading.”
Needless to say, I left the meeting uplifted. And eager to complete the movie script.

I am delighted to learn that Woman In The Pulpit is popular among Canadian readers. Women in ministry, church groups, and book clubs are discovering Woman In The Pulpit. It is heartwarming to learn that women beyond the borders of the United States can identify with Grace Alexander and her painful experiences as she seeks acceptance through her work in ministry.
Fresh out of seminary, Grace returns to her hometown anxious to try out the new forms of ministry she has learned. But welcome arms are not out to greet her. She navigates the terrain, steps in potholes, hits curves, and battles diabolical forces.
Thomas Haliburton, leader of the Ministerial Alliance, is not ready for the new pastor in town. He vows to do everything in his power to thwart Grace’s efforts.
Enter Clyde Williams, who is engaged to Haliburton’s daughter. Clyde doesn’t believe women should be ministers, and certainly not pastors, until he meets Grace.
A major scandal involving Grace threatens to tear apart the town. Now Clyde has to decide whose side he is on.
Woman In The Pulpit is truly global. Readers in Canada are saying great things about the book. I hope you’ll check it out and share it with your friends.
Woman In The Pulpit
Don’t ever doubt! Have an unshakeable faith….even when others doubt you!
Peel away the covering and you will see bruises and scares where you have taken hits. You can withstand anything with faith as your core source of strength.
What do you believe about yourself and what you want to accomplish? Do you believe you can accomplish your goals? Or do you think maybe you can? Or you just don’t know?
In order to achieve your goals, you are going to need an unwavering belief in your ability to do what you set out to do.
Who are you listening to? Are you listening to your supporters? Or are you listening to the naysayers?
Regardless of what the outside voices are saying, you have a voice deep within that you should listen to for direction and guidance. The voice within will never lead you astray. It is the voice of faith.
Oftentimes, you are too busy to stop and listen. You feel that you have to race through life so no one will catch you. And when trouble comes you quit because you were not totally committed to your goals.
Do you really, truly believe that you can achieve what you set out to do? Then don’t let others stop you.
If you really believe you are called to do something, you will find a way to make it happen. Go under, through, or around the obstacle. But make it happen.
What you believe will determine your level of success. Believe in you!
