Okay, so most of you know I am in the process of writing a new book. This process requires several important elements…
* A Title
* A Main Point
* A Main Point that is then broken down into sections called chapters
* Words to fill the pages contained within the chapters
I have 3 out of the four clicking along really well. I have a main point. I have chapters in an outline. I even have words that are starting to fill in the bare bones of the outline.
However, the title has been eluding me. So, I’ve decided to call upon some of the smartest people I know who have helped me with everything from foot ailments to recipes… YOU! I need your help with thinking through the title for this project.
First, I will tell you that this project will be a book and a Bible Study with DVD’s to help facilitate the study being used in small groups and women’s study groups.
The focus of the project is to help women move past just being filled up with Biblical knowledge and onto applying Biblical principles to their everyday lives. Instead of Jesus just being a part of our lives, I want to show how Jesus can be the very filter through which we process everything… every action, every reaction, all of our plans, and all of our decisions.
I want this book to equip women to come to know Jesus like never before. Instead of just knowing facts about Jesus, we can know Him in deeper ways than we even thought possible as we experience Him and His activity in our daily lives. Then the more we experience Him, the more we will live His reality out loud for the world to see.
So, here’s what I need from you…
Will you read over the following titles and let me know what you think about them. Would any of them grab your attention and prompt you to want to buy this book. Can you think of a title after reading what this project is about?
For everyone that comments between today and tomorrow, I will enter you into a random drawing to win a $20 Starbucks card. Bribery isn’t all bad right? I’ll announce the winner this Friday. Feel free to comment as many times as you like as ideas come to you.
Okay… here are a few of the proposed titles so far. For some of them the main title is listed first with the possible subtitle underneath:
“When Women Trust God Completely”
“Does Jesus Work?”
-Learning to Live the Realities of Jesus-
-Becoming more than a Good Bible Study Girl-
-Learning to Live Unafraid-
Thank you so much for your help!
Oh My Stars! You ladies are amazing! I went to go get the dead ends trimmed off my hair and came back to so many suggestions.
I talked to one of the potential publishers today and she has been checking in on all you gals are writing.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your suggestions… publishers take your thoughts very seriously!
