From Foxholes to Faith.

Just imagine going in to Borders and seeing a sign that said, "Take one - it's free!"

I don't know about you, but I'd take one whether I wanted it or not.

Well, today is that day.

Feel free to download your copy of From Foxholes to Faith and feel free to pass it on to as many people as you'd like. Or just send them here and they can do it themselves. I mean, hey, it's a free book. Oh, sure, I'm not expecting them to make a movie about it and for young women all over the universe to flock to see it while wearing t-shirts that say, "I heart vampires." But hey, did I mention it's free?

So please take a moment to download your copy by clicking here. Or by clicking on the sidebar to your right. Just click on the arrow beside the word Menu and it's yours for the takin'.

Thank you all for your wonderful calls, cards and emails of encouragement. And for the sweet ladies who emailed me and asked if they could join in on the donation process, we have added Paypal just for you. Which is ironic that it's called that due to the fact that I feel like you really are paying your pal. Me! And I certainly appreciate your giving to the AG and I in regards to this book. Trust me, he put in far more work than I did and is rightfully deserving of every penny. If all he gets is a free plate of fajitas from Chili's, trust me, it was more than he was planning on getting.

*Note: Paypal has been set up for some friends who asked about this. It is not encouraged, required, expected or assumed. I assure you. I love you all because you're broke. Just. like. me.

So, my lovelies, here it is. Pray for a name. Now pray for another one. Now send it to them. They're waiting.

My story for His glory,

Melissa

Thanks for putting this together and writing it, for being so brutally honest. God's love is amazing! I am touched by your faith which is something I struggle with so much. I love reading that when you were in your foxhole, God had already started the process of you getting out of that foxhole. I just keep think about the song Amazing Love, because of His Amazing Love.

Thank you agian for sharing your heart with all of us.

I just read it-you have been through so much..Up,down,up...God always is faithful-you are living proof. The pictures of your sweet children made me cry-and I am not PMSing!! Your story is one I will share with a dear friend who just had her second stillbirth this year.

After reading all of your updates, all that keeps ringing in my head is, "Great is Thy Faithfulness, Great is Thy Faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies I see. ALL I HAVE NEEDED, THY HAND HATH PROVIDED, Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me."

I'm going to print it out and read it during my Thanksgiving vacation... along with the second Twilight book. You are in good company ;)

I am a lurker...
I have been lurking for a while now. You make me laugh every day, and sometimes you make me cry. But you always make me believe.
Thank you for writing and sharing and allowing us to share your story. You have already touched so many, now you can reach more. Rae

I've said it before, but you are truely an inspriation!! You have honestly had a hand in renewing my faith. Thanks and blessings to you and your family!!

Hi Melissa - I remember calling my Mom, and through tears, reading her your post about how Rocco came into your life. So, tonight, I have printed it, will stick it in the UPS drop box tomorrow, and will send it to her. I've never been so grateful to have been so desperately wanted and loved, and know that both of your children will feel the same way. Thank you, thank you for sharing.

Melissa,
I truly love you. I'm not sure where you are or how we got seperated, but you are my sis!

Thank you - I needed that.
Please pray for my daddy. He is truly in a Foxhole - and a mustard seed seems so big right now...
Thanks so much.

I just finished reading your e-book - I had read the posts as you wrote them here- and am STILL awed and amazed at what our God does on our behalf. What he did for you. It blows me away.

To know our prayers were not in vain. I am still praying for you -- thanking our Father that He still performs wonders on our behalf.

He is able.

This is a mighty resource, one I plan to recommend on my own blog this Friday for my readers to download -- I want to catch them AFTER the turkey shopping and cooking so that they can really hear what God has done.

Be blessed, Melissa. For you have deeply blessed me today.

<3, Kristen

Congratulations! I was able to skim through most of the book because I was there to experience your experience the first time. You have such a way with words. I wish you all the success in the world in writing a New York Times best seller that gets your writing the attention it deserves. And God bless you and your beautiful family!
