This time last year, I took a big huge risky step that I still can’t believe I even did. I wrote a book and launched it. Even writing that… “I wrote a book”… I’m still in shock most days.
The book is for photographers and it’s about trusting God with your photography business. It’s about recognizing that this gift of photography is bigger than yourself and our own creative passions, and letting Jesus be the CEO of how you run your business. It’s about prospering, not according to the world’s definition of fame and finances, but prospering according to His kingdom in how you use your gift to serve in the lives of others.
Following the launch, email after email came pouring in with one thankful heart after another, most crying tears as they wrote the email, simply sharing their story with me and how Prosper was the exact thing they needed to read at this exact moment in their life. But I hate to take any credit for it. It truly was a God thing. I fought Him many times to not want to finish it, but through the support of my amazing husband, I finally gained the courage to hit the “Publish” button that launched the announcement of it all.
Now a year later…… it amazes me how it still lives on through a group that has grown dear to my heart. This is a group of Christian photographers who meet in what’s called The Prosper Community to go along with the book. In this free group, they support each other, pray for each other, seek photography and life advice, and simply do life together walking hand in hand one sister and brother in Christ together, who happen to share a creative passion for documenting people’s memories with photography.
Today in The Prosper Community, we started over with Day 1 of my Prosper 40 Day devotional. Some are rereading it, some are reading it for the first time…. And I wanted to invite YOU to join us in the group to do the book study with us. Since we can’t all meet in a real bible study, it’s great to be able to connect digitally and be a support system for each other. If you are a photographer overwhelmed trying to run your business your way, and are ready to let God take control to dream up dreams for you that you could never imagine, please join us!
