I can remember trying to make my first vide. I cried. Matt and I got in a big fight when he tried to coach me on how to act natural in front of the camera, but there was something inside of me that wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and give videos (or vlogging, as all the bloggers call it) a try.

I'm Baaaack! Chai with Charity @charitylcraig

Well, hundreds of takes later, I’ve decided I have so much fun recording my thoughts with you on camera, so I couldn’t stay away. I’m Baaaack!!

This week on Chai with Charity, I give my update on the ole book writing. When I first embarked on taking the huge undertaking of putting 78,000 words to paper, I thought, “Eh? It’s going to be like writing a hundred blog posts”, but for some reason that’s exactly how it wasn’t. I was hitting a huge mental block, and I don’t know why. I know there are those who will tell me to keep pushing, keep making yourself write that book. I’ve decided to take a different approach. I share how that book writing pot just needs to simmer a little bit longer before it’s ready, and that’s ok. It’s not like I somehow missed God’s will or something. The time is just not right now.

Have you ever tried something out and discovered maybe the time isn’t right? Share in the comments below about a time you put yourself out there, but quickly realized the timing wasn’t right. Did you trust the voice inside? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

If you haven’t already downloaded my new e-book, The Secret to a Happy Marriage, you totally should. It’s a great resource for anyone married or even single, planning on getting married. You’ll love it!

    This is a great idea to share with people! Our situation is parallel in some aspects, would you mind emailing me a copy of that paperwork? You can do this, because God already has your timetable worked out Charity. Keep up the great story you are writing, your life 🙂

    People have told me for several years I “should write a book”. But, it hasn’t been time and I knew it. Not enough passion to see it through yet and let go the other stuff. Plus I have ALOT more to learn

    Oh Charity!! First of all, you are just so adorable and I love watching you! I kept thinking the entire time I listened to your experience with the book writing- “God’s time dear one… God’s time is perfect.”

    You will produce and create an incredible book- a gift for many… God will see to it!! Rest assured, it will come- and you will be able to face this mountain step by faithful step!

    I learned so much about the mountain of it all!! WOW. So I was thinking someday I may be inspired to write a book… good Lord this info helps!!! Will see if God takes me to the mountain too…

    I know one thing is for sure. He will equip you for the trek up. 🙂
