Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's back to work I go . . .

The last couple of years have been good for me in many respects.  Since the closing of Crossroads Books & Gifts in August of '09, I've had the opportunity of a lifetime to be able to do some freelance writing for several faith-based publications.  It's been fun and rewarding  . . . well, maybe not all that financially rewarding but rewarding, none-the-less.  It's been a season of life for which I'm very thankful.  Starting in mid-December, I joined Cokesbury, a publishing and distribution division of the United Methodist Publishing House, as the field representative for the Mobile, AL area. 

I'll be working with churches and para-church ministries to resource them with the various products and services that Cokesbury offers and will be working out of an office in my home, primarily serving about a 75 mile radius of home.  This job presents an opportunity for me to reconnect with the Christian publishing industry and capitalize on my past experience.

I'm just getting my feet wet now, attending training in Nashville and North Carolina, getting my office set-up and beginning to learn the ropes.  I probably won't really hit the ground running here until later in January. I think this will be fun and rewarding and I hope that I can make a positive contribution to a well-respected organization.

I'll let you know how it goes as the job progresses.
