Q &A for Bernice Dickey’s “My #1 Is Still My #1!” for AAMBC virtual tour
What was the inspiration for writing the book?
I couldn’t find my story on any book shelf even though I knew someone else had to have gone thru multiple losses of loved ones at the same time before me. And b/c God commissioned me to write it after I came through the fiery trial of my faith.
Explain your process for writing the book.
I have always been a journal(er) so the process came about as I wrote down what God and the shared with me as they coached me through my grief. When it was time to write the book, I left it in journal format to help the reader experience my emotions day by day as I did and to put them in the moment as they read the book.
Who is your book for? My book is for anyone who has ever lost someone (Family) or something significant (home, biz, health) in their lives.
How does it help us in our daily lives? The book walks you through the daily process of trusting God’s Word over your emotions, especially when the going gets tough.
What is the one thing you would like your readers to walk away with after reading this book?
No matter how much you are crushed down and overwhelmed by your emotions after experiencing a loss, if God is your #1 Priority you will come through your test of faith as His trophy of Grace! If you are NOT in a crisis right now then get your priorities in order, b/c so that when you are in it you can move through it on automatic pilot while letting the Holy Spirit steers you clear out of the storm. Just like we drive our cars on automatic pilot we will arrive on the peaceful side, Hallelujah!
What is next for you? I am guest blogging on relationship blogs, writing articles for parenting magazines as well as promoting my new book My #1 Is Still My #1!
Do you have plans to write other devotional/spiritual books, and how can readers reach you? I am working on ideas for a parenting book that helps parents to teach their children how to be grateful in a way that reminds us of our appreciation for the things we now have. Our children have more than we ever knew to ask for, yet they are lacking in their appreciation of the many things that we give them. I have the answer for parents in the form of a small pocket book coming out real soon!
