Have you ever had a dream? Something that you really wanted to do? Here’s a cute video if you can relate to having something you’ve always wanted to do.
My sister-in-law gave me a disc with a bunch of princess songs on it a few weeks ago and this was one of the songs on it. I must admit…it makes me smile.
Anyway…back to having a dream.
So my friend Misty, whom I’ve mentioned before, is one of the people who have meant a lot to me. Not only because we’ve been friends since childhood, but because with out her I’m pretty sure my high school and prolly college GPA would have been around a 2.0. She was my long-standing tutor (I’m not that smart). She was also just the very best true-blue friend a person could have.
She’s a brilliant person in almost every subject, but most especially at creative writing. She wrote and published her first novel Daughter of Helaman a few years ago. It was a major accomplishment for her and a fulfillment of one of her dreams.
Since then she’s been writing like her life depended on it. Stories fill her mind and she can’t rest until she’s put pen to paper. Her one book has turned into a series that has turned into many. Her second book in the series is now available! Another major accomplishment and fulfillment of a dream.
To me, she’s every woman. If she can do this, so can you. Maybe your dream isn’t to write novels. Maybe your dream is as harebrained as the ogres in the video above. Either way, let Misty’s accomplishment inspire you.
You can accomplish what ever you set your mind to.
Below are the details about Misty’s new book. It’s such a fun read for pre-teens to old grannies, especially if you like love triangles and girl-power. Check it out…
Keturah fought her way into the army, but now she’s in Judea building fortifications, and the only thing she’s fought so far is boredom. The work is hard, and the other soldiers don’t think she can pull her weight. Her brothers are becoming strangers, and Zeke’s jealousy is getting worse – because Keturah is falling in love with the wrong warrior.
But she’s not about to let cruel pranks and hurt feelings keep her from doing what she knows to be right. She completes every order with faithfulness – a hasty retreat from the Lamanite army, a spy mission into the enemy stronghold, a midnight assassination. From burying the dead to whiling away hours on guard duty, Keturah will do whatever it takes to protect her religion, her freedom, her peace, and her family.
But in a camp of two thousand boys, the most important thing she has to protect is her heart.
Fight For You is the second novel in Misty Moncur’s Stripling Warrior series. Fall in love with these romantic novels set against a vivid Book of Mormon backdrop.
Misty Moncur wanted to be Indiana Jones when she grew up. Instead, she became an author and has her adventures at home. In her jammies. With her imagination. And pens that she keeps running dry.
Misty lives in a marsh near a very salty lake in Utah with her husband and children, where they cuddle up in the evenings and read their Kindles. Well, she does anyway.
