The View

Transient

Hey folks! So we’ve rescheduled my chat about A Year of Biblical Womanhood with the ladies of The View for Thursday, November 1 at 11EST/10Central on ABC.  Use #BiblicalWomanhood if you want to tweet your thoughts.

Of course, this whole week has served as a profound reminder of the truth of James' instructions to the early church: "Now listen, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” (James 4:13-15)

Plans change.

Floodwaters rise.

Life is fragile.

But, Lord willing, I'll be talking about the hermeneutics of head coverings with Whoopi Goldberg tomorrow, so be sure to tune in!

Thank you.

The words of encouragement many of you shared today on your blogs brought me to happy tears. I wanted to try to contact each of you directly, but I knew I’d forget someone, so let me use this space to say: thank you, thank you, thank you. What a joy it is to travel this journey of faith together. Today I feel like a true woman of valor, and it's because of you. 

Love to you all from NYC!

A Year of Biblical Womanhood Release Week Starts with “The View”

Transient

UPDATE: Monday's appearance on The View has been cancelled/postponed due to weather. Will keep you posted. In the meantime, everyone stay safe!

This week is release week for A Year of Biblical Womanhood, and we’re kicking it off in style with a visit to the ladies at The View! 

Dan and I will be talking with Whoopi, Barbara, Sherri, Joy, and Elisabeth on Monday morning at 11 EST. If you want to tweet during the show, use #BiblicalWomanhood. 

Release week is an important week for sales, so if you’ve been waiting to buy, this would be the time. Copies should be available at all major retailers by Tuesday, though most already have copies on shelves. My publisher, Thomas Nelson will be announcing a special giveaway for folks who buy this week, so be sure to hold on to those proofs of purchase. 

In the acknowledgements section of the book, I write this: “I am grateful beyond words for my readers at rachelheldevans.com, who inspired me to write this book and whose comments, criticisms, stories, and questions made it what it is. Our little online community feels like home to me in so many ways. Your honesty and grace are rare gifts that I hope never to take for granted.” 

Thank you once again for your encouragement and support through all the ups and downs of this crazy project. 

I hope you enjoy the book. I wrote it for you!
