A New Dream

May 31, 2010

Hi!  I’m Teri Lynne Underwood, writer of Pleasing to You.  I’ve wanted to be an author for as long as I can remember.  I’m in the midst of writing my first book to submit for publication and it’s a terrifying but thrilling process.

But in the midst of building a platform, proofing and editing, learning the ins and outs of book proposals, and preparing to attend my first writers’ conference, the Lord opened my heart to a new dream.  Not in place of but in addition to … a new way to encourage, to challenge, to build the body of Christ.

It started with a conference call with two dear online friends … a casual mention of a new sort of website.  A place to pursue a greater understanding of the Word of God and to help others do the same.   A name was tossed out … Scripture Dig … and it’s been on my heart since then.   The conversation really wasn’t about a new website … but the Lord planted that seed in my heart.  And, as He always does, when the time was right, He showed me a new dream.

This dream … a place where women can come to encourage one another … to learn and grow.  To read and share different perspectives on God’s Word … to understand how others put Scripture into practice in their lives … to build up the Body of Christ.

I have no idea what this road looks like … it’s totally uncharted, completely a walk of faith.  I’d love to look at themes like marriage and faith … and at passages of Scripture like Isaiah 1 and 1 John 5. Some incredible women have decided to join me on this journey … and we hope to create a community that encourages and supports, challenges and inspires.

Come back and meet these beautiful women who have graciously agreed to join me … they’ll be introducing themselves this week.    And, on Monday, June 7th … the DIG begins!

What say you?  Along for the ride?

    Also! The coding on your button is missing the http:// so it is redirecting.
