- How discipline helped her learn to write every day
- How she started writing about her adoption story
- She never thought of herself as an early morning person, but works best then
- Showing her husband that she was serious about her dream
- Spouse support is so important
- Being in your dream together with your spouse
- Ecclesiates 4:6 “Better is one hand full with tranquility than two hands full with toil and chasing after the wind.”
- What you’re doing matters. It’s making a difference to you and someone else, whether you see it or not
- Give yourself some grace
- Focus on what is going to move you towards your goal
- We find out limits by going past them
