MEGAN LA FOLLETT grew up in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, where she explored her first beloved sanctuary from the back of a pony named Silver. As a married graduate student, she became a working mother to a golden-haired and strong-willed daughter. With the birth of a second child, she chose to stay at home. Two years later, another son joined the family and she began to work from home as an editor and writer. Following the birth of a third son, she joined the team at Ascending Leaders, a Christian nonprofit, as the communications lead. Her life is built on her passion for story and finding her place in the greatest story of all.
For Modern Day Moms
I thought it felt real when I typed “The End.” Then the book was formatted for print, and I knew it was real. But none of that compares to the feeling I had when I opened up that simple cardboard box and felt the weight of the book in my hand.
It’s really real. I could touch it, smell the ink, flip through the pages!
I can’t wait for you to hold a copy. I feel the weight of my desire for this book to bless you and help you soak in the deep well of God’s grace, and I fear that it won’t measure up.
But it’s not really my book, this collaboration between a 17th-century monk and a modern-day mom. It’s a book that had to be written, and all I could do was obey. So I remind myself, the weight doesn’t fall on me.
What weight are you carrying that doesn’t belong on you?
