This is another of my “in a place just right” stories.
When you travel alone, you never know who will be your companions on the journey. I was blessed on a recent flight to be seated with Kim, and it turned out we had a lot in common. She had worked in children’s ministry and was in the process of writing a book. Me too!
How is it these things happen to me? I do not know. God-incidences, I tell you.
We explored our common experiences during the hours-long flight. Kim shared her writing with me, and I shared a couple of my prayer station meditations with her. We offered one another encouragement on our respective journeys - both the physical travel and the books we were creating. By the time the flight landed, we’d exchanged business cards and promised to keep in touch.
Fast forward four months…and it did feel like fast forward!
We didn’t do very well at keeping in touch over the busy summer, but a few weeks ago, I contacted Kim through her website. I wanted to let her know that Following the Bread Crumbs has been published and find out how her book was progressing.
Kim has also finished writing her book, and it will be available in 2018. She’s still providing encouragement to me on this new venture, so I’d like to give her a shout out here.
If you’d like to meet my new friend, Kim Chaffin, through her writing, you may enjoy her blog, Heartfelt Ramblings of a Mid-life Domestic Goddess, at www.heartfeltramblings.com.
Her first book, Simply Blessed, is a 31 day devotional book for women, and is listed on Amazon for pre-order (and you can take a sneak peek at the contents). Any pre-orders before December 31, 2017 will contribute $1 to Generation Alive, a youth ministry dear to Kim’s heart.
While you’re on Amazon, don’t forget to check out my book, Following the Bread Crumbs!

I love reading, writing, and photography! Spending time with my family and friends around the kitchen table is about the best occasion I know. I'm just beginning to stretch my creative wings, so here's to gentle breezes and clear skies.
