It’s here! The hush of the evening after a brimming-with-life day aaaand!! the second edition of my first book came in the mail!
I didn’t say much about it this summer. There’s been so much happening and much to learn I hardly knew where to begin, but I’m excited to unpack a little at a time this journey, tell you more about what I’ve been learning and all the good that has been happening… But for now, celebrate with me?! My heart is full!
After a lot of consideration I will not be signing a contract with a publishing company at this point in my family’s life. However, the thought and invitation offered to me has opened the door to vaster ideas than I’ve ever allowed for inside my own skin and that has been worth more than I can find words to express at the moment. For now I am pressing on at a slower pace as an indie published author and it feels good.
This summer and fall have been full of growth. One of the bigger learning curves has been the costliness of printing not only a book full of words, but of full-color photography as well. My husband, Jay, and I have worked hard to lower the cost for my readers so I’m deep down happy to introduce my improved price of $17 for a color copy. If you’ve been waiting! It’s ready!
So much thanks to you all for your support and encouragement! I know several of you reading this out there are writers and creators yourself. Press on fellow artists, even if in your journals in the quiet tonight. Every moment living (seen or unseen) the passion we were born for is building beauty in this world. Believe it.
P.S. More fun news coming soon! I would love it if you sign up for my (new) newsletter to stay in touch.
P.P.S. I’m doing a give-away! Sign up for my newsletter OR leave me a comment below to be entered. I’ll do a random drawing on Monday.
Hey! My name is Raynna and I like to go camping with my kids in a tent that is too small for 8 people and wear them out real good so that they fall asleep in the middle of the day snuggled up to me like this. I can barely handle the preciousness so I write about it and take pictures, pray a lot and laugh when my husband tells me that I like to act like a homeless person when I’m ready to go camping again. Tell me something about you in the comments?!
I love the title and the things you’re giving your time to. Looking forward to knowing you better through your sharing! 🙂
Thank you Heather!
I also like to go camping and wear the kiddos out – but it is pretty hard to get them to collapse in my arms, these days! I love sitting in the sun by any bit of water, or under waving leaves. I am new to the soccer mom scene, and survived my first tournament weekend (!?!) very grateful the weather was good. I am grateful to be surrounded by loving supportive family and good true friends, without them I would certainly be far crazier than I already am! 😉
And we are grateful for you! Thanks for such a great comment Larissa and woo-hoo!!! for a successful tournament weekend!
Hi, Raynna. Your book looks wonderful. If it’s anything as encouraging as the words of life I heard you speak at Leslie’s house years ago, then that’s a bargain price! At 8 months pregnant right now, I feel deeply connected to your title and topic. <3
So great to hear from you and congratulations on your pregnancy! I’m feeling you there sister! Thank you so much for your encouraging words, it means quite a bit to me! I hope we can stay in touch.

Raynna…to me, each of us are spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s very clear, that you’re, enjoying and sharing the fullness of that journey.
I’ve read your book, all of your post, and look forward to more.
I find within your writing, warm evidence, that your awakening grows brighter, that your expression of daily life and insights have great value to me, and that you encourage a valuable self motivation.
Your sharing in such honesty, from the depth of who you truly are, is a blessing.
This life… when we are honest, holds great threats towards, and intended destruction of loves purity. I see you as one, that does battle daily, against such blinding destruction.
Your encouragement, towards the purity of love, matters: As love in its purity, is the food of the spirit…without it, the full potential of any spirit is stunted, and without full bloom.
As you have demonstrated and shared in your uniqueness, our Creator offers challenge to sharpen and focus True Light on our journey and growth.
Thank you so much, for sharing, as you have: spirit to spirit…
“This life… when we are honest, holds great threats towards, and intended destruction of love’s purity. I see you as one, that does battle daily, against such blinding destruction.”
If I know how to do that, it’s because of you, who has taught us to see the spiritual mixed with the physical…spirit to spirit. So all my thanks goes to you Dad. I love you always.
I am a huge fan of YOU! XOXO
It’s mutual Karla, thank you for all your encouragement!
Thank you SO SO MUCH everybody!!! All I want to do is give away this book, so it gives me a lot of pleasure to get to do so. We pulled a name out of the pot and the winner is…Bethany D.!
