At my home office.
I woke up one morning a few weeks ago and decided to start a company. Yep, it was that quick of a decision. However, I do have some background that is supportive.
I have amassed a monumental amount of writings, most of which sits in my closet unpublished. I have a few books ready to go, among them, a historical novel, a memoir, and a book about the women in jail I counseled and what they taught me. I also have children’s books that need an illustrator. Not to mention 4,901 poems (I kept them all, good and bad ones!). Much more of my work awaits completion and/or revision. So what to do with this mass of writing?
I am a retired CPA and have owned a company before. When I retired, I took college classes in creative writing, read books on writing techniques, and went to writing conferences. Learned a lot.
Over the past twelve years, our Henderson Hills Baptist writing team collected, edited and compiled eight books. The Heart Books series include stories/poems/devotionals of what God has done through people. We published some amazing stories reflecting God’s love.
Putting all this together, it seems reasonable to begin a company. But what about funding? Doesn’t it take money to begin a company? My father passed away last year and left me a decent inheritance. I think he would be proud if he knew I was trying to put it to good use. I want to do my best to obey God each day, and follow wherever this leads.
The next step after deciding to begin a company is to come up with a name. Memory House Publishing already has a Twitter and Facebook account! I hope to show you a website soon! This has been a blast! I plan to share more with you as we go along!
You are loved,

Yay!!!!!!!!!!! Great post. So excited to be a part of this new venture.
So excited that you are on board!
I can’t wait to read more of your writings and memories. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
I am so happy that you have decided to go for it. I have always heard that if we don’t take risks we will never reach our goals in life. I pray that God will direct your path in this endeavor and that it will be a huge success. It will be great to hear about your adventure.
Thanks! It has been a glorious journey so far. SO many people supporting me! Wherever God takes me is fine with me!
