Loved: looking for stories


I'm one of several writers working on a new book project, a book called Loved with Christian recording artist Rebecca St. James. The book is based on a song ("You Are Loved") Rebecca wrote for a friend who turned to drugs and away from the church, and will tell stories of young women who left their faith and rediscovered the love of Christ.

This is a book of encouragement and hope. It says, "No matter where you've been or what you've done... you are loved."

Do you have a story like this that you'd like to share, or do you know someone who might? I would love to interview you (in person if you're in the D.C. area, by phone if you're not.) Simply use this link to send me your contact information. I'll handle all the writing, so no worries if you're not a writer.

The stories may be dramatic or very simple; the women featured may be modern-day, they may be young women still, they may be older now; I'm hoping to throw in one or two historical pieces as well. (Just a note -- there's no payment for stories, but everyone featured will receive a free book.)

Even if you don't know of a story, if you could pass this on to others who might know of one, that would be a huge help.

The book will release through FaithWords in the fall of 2009.

"Without knowledge that we are loved so extravagantly by God, we can't love Him back, we can't live a holy life, we can't trust Him. But when we understand that He loves us – so deeply and so passionately – and that He wants us to live this great adventure with Him – then we can understand who He is and love Him with all we are." -- Rebecca St. James

There is more sound theology in that sentence than in two – make that three -shelves of my revered books on Christian doctrine. “Surely the Lord is in this place and I knew it not.” God bless you and your colleagues on this undertaking, Lori!
