A Big Sale and a Big Meeting

I just noticed that Amazon is having a sale on my book right now. Instead of its original cost of $15, and instead of Amazon’s usual discounted price of $10.20, Love is an Orientation: Elevating the Conversation with the Gay Community, is now only $8.82!

Pick it up here for almost a 50% discount. It makes a great gift for the holidays! :)   And just as a reminder, 100% of the profits from my book sales go directly to The Marin Foundation to keep us up and running.

Also, I fly out late today for a one day meeting in Washington, DC tomorrow. This meeting, which I can’t talk about in detail, could be a game-changer for the long-term sustainability of The Marin Foundation. Please pray for its success, as I’m super nervous right now, even just thinking about it. It’s a situation (and the potential to come out of it) is something I’ve never been in before. I will always continue to faithfully walk in the opportunities that present themselves, and in my head I am trying really hard not to bank on the potential outcome of this meeting. But that’s a really difficult thing for me to do because this situation is so new - which is why I think I’m stressing so much.

Anyway, thanks so much for your love and support. I’m going to Washington DC and putting myself out there tomorrow for all of us.

Much love.

    Thanks for the Amazon tip! I’ve been needing to pick up a few extras to pass out to friends! Prayers go with you on this trip and with this meeting!

    Sounds wonderful, but before you make final agreements, let others who have more experience, & maybe even a lawyer check everything out.
    Years ago, I read the book of Pat Robertson’s earlier ministry & there was some woman who promised tons of money. It looked good, but didn’t pan out. I don’t remember if the woman had a mental problem or what, but I have learned to be cautiously optimistic in life.
    Yes, there are wonderful opportunities, but there are decoys along the way. All this strengthens our faith & discernment!
    Bon Voyage! I hope the weather is better in DC & on the way there & back!
    Happy B’day, wherever you may be at that time!!
