Well, hello, everyone. My name is Mary Alford, and I’m happy to be back here with you again. Some of you may not remember me, but I was a blogger here at Christians Read a few years back.
Don’t you just love the paths that God leads us down? You just never know where He will take you along the way, but you do know, you won’t have to go down it alone.
The 23rd Psalm is one of my favorites because it defines this walk of life so beautifully. Sometimes our paths lead us beside still waters, others through the valley of the shadow of death. But through each step we can rest assured God is with us and His goodness is there for us to receive.
I can certainly say that’s what I’ve experienced through my walk of life, and particularly my writing journey.
In the past, there were many times when I questioned whether of not this was what God called me to do. I thought about quitting, but it seemed God kept prodding me to keep going—even through those valleys when my dream of being a published author felt impossible.
And so, I kept going and I’m so glad that I did. God has blessed me so much. I’ve had the honor of writing for Love Inspired Books. My 10th LIS is coming out in April of this year. God has put some amazing authors in my path who have helped my writing career.
In June of 2020, I sold my first book to Revell and I’m excited about this new path God has set me on.
And the road ahead? Well, that’s in God’s hands, but I know wherever He leads me I won’t walk that path alone. He is there. What an amazing promise.
All the best…
