Draft One Completed! -- Booya

I am thrilled to announce that as of March 13, 2024, at precisely 16:40, I have completed the first draft of my book, currently titled “The Battle, God’s Armor, and Wonderful Freedom.” Such a journey!

To say I’m happy would be an understatement. The process of writing this book has been like embarking on an unforeseen adventure with out a map.  Particularly, the completion of a chapter that I had initially believed would be straightforward became my Everest. This chapter, not the last in the sequence but certainly the most daunting, required not one, not two, but five attempts since early January. The struggle was real, yet, here I am, filled with relief and a sense of accomplishment, for I have finally crafted it in a way that flows perfectly with the rest of the book.

My immediate plan is to bask in this achievement and share my joy with my daughter and her YWAM SBS team while they are in town. After their departure, I will embark on the journey of refining this draft, a process I approach with equal parts excitement and determination.

In preparation for the second draft, I’ve already begun compiling notes on word choices, themes, and the overarching narrative arc. The aim is to weave a tighter, more cohesive message, one that leaves a lasting impact. Now that I can view the manuscript in its entirety, from the raw beginnings to its rough conclusion, I am more attuned to the nuances that need attention.

As I close this chapter (pun intended) and look ahead to the next phase of revision and refinement, I am filled with a sense of relief and joy. Here’s to the journey ahead, filled with more learning, growth, and joy as the pages of my book continue to come into shape. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey. Onward to the next chapter!



Congratulations Brian! What an achievement. Have a great time with E & co. Praying for the next stage!
