I think one of the most edifying things for a writer is seeing their words in actual print. I get giddy with excitement whenever something I wrote shows up in my mailbox for me to thumb through. LifeWay's magazine cycle is WAY ahead, so typically you're writing almost three quarters ahead of time. This article that I wrote for Deacon Magazine, "Why the Future Matters" then got delayed an issue, so this article has been waiting for just over a year to see print. Welcome to the world, little sliver of my thoughts; I hope your readers like you!
