At the end of my retreat in September 2008, I called home to talk to Becky. She asked if my time on the mountain in North Carolina had been successful. I told her the what and why of what I would write about. Her response? “I could have told you that before you left.”
But she did acknowledge that I had to come to that conclusion on my own. So what I decided to write about was what I desire for others. And writing about what I desire and do for others is making me more confident in doing it.
