Coffee Shop- final week

Ohio was wonderful, we felt united as we spoke, fully present and we even got time to work on our book. The flights were perfectly smooth. We're still getting emails from thankful people in the audiences.

This week we need your prayers for writing. We're down to the last 4 days of editing Coffee Shop Conversations: Making the Most of Spiritual Small Talk.

Please pray for us to have creativity and clarity as we edit. We both know that the small changes we make this week will have long-term consequences for help or confusion. We want the former. :)

Putting in 8-10 hours each day to do our final (5th) read through of the manuscript has been grueling. Please pray for us to still like each other at the end of the day, too. :) So far, we've found the work very rewarding, but we're only 1/4 of the way through this final read.

Dale is doing a lot of work editing on our "being" verbs and cutting the manuscript down another 7000 words. I (Jonalyn) am doing the final, final read through. We're both feeling the pressure of our Saturday deadline.

Thank you so much for helping us make it through!
