Farewell to Social Media

Even before I began pursuing publication, I often considered leaving social media. Being a primary source of contact with so many in my life, it’s not a decision I make lightly. But it’s weighed heavily on my mind in recent months and I’ve prayed about it a lot. I know it’s the right decision for me.

Social media isn’t bad. There are many wonderful people on social media doing amazing things through connections forged on social media. (The recent #AuthorsForFireys auction is a good example of that!)

I still love writing and will continue to publish. Crafting stories, creating teaching materials, and supporting others where I can is a calling. The day may come where it’s time to step away, but today is not that day! :)

I will continue to blog. It’s my hope that leaving Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter will be an opportunity to offer more blog content for readers, teachers, homeschool parents, and other writers.

Yes, leaving social media goes against conventional wisdom for authors. And, yes, it’s risky.

But everything I have, I owe to God. He gave His only Son up to die so those in the world might be saved through Him, which includes me. He has blessed me and brought me through the darkest parts of my life. And He did that even though on my best day I’m still a fallible sinner. So doing my best to follow His will for my life is the least I can do.

For those still looking to connect with me and/or follow my writing journey, the best places going forward are here on my website/blog and through my newsletter.
