Kaleesha’s book, Free to Be, is a freebie today on Amazon! If you’ve already read it but have not yet left a review please consider doing so as it is a huge help! If you’ve not gotten your copy why are you still here?? You might also want to consider checking out her blog. Good stuff.
Kaleesha’s at it again with a really wonderful post about our human ideas about the way things are supposed to be..
Today at lunch I overheard my six year old directing one of the older children in the making of her PB&J sandwich. “Not like that. I want it the way it’s supposed to be.”
At six years old, Little already has ideas about the way things are supposed be. Are all children like this or just mine? I don’t know. I suspect it’s more common than not. In my home, all nine of us, right down to four year old Justin, have perfectionist streaks. Natural born idealists. Though the older we are, the more set in our ways and certain we seem to be.
A fantastic new essay by Kaleesha is posted over at Patreon. Please visit and consider supporting her work as a writer. She often makes it look easy but I see how much time she puts into crafting her posts. While it is true that she loves writing it is also true that writing is not just a labor of love for her; not any more. This is now her effort to earn a living, her “career”. If you choose to support her I can promise (from my behind the scenes vantage point) that your money is well spent. As an writer Kaleesha is growing by leaps and bounds. Not only is she working on two books (both fiction) but she relentlessly polishes each essay she publishes (nearly one a week.)
Kaleesha is over at Patreon now! Her first post there: DIY Well Pump Replacement.
Kaleesha has been featured at the Feminine Collective:
Born Again – One Woman’s Journey Out of Religion – Feminine Collective
This is one of the best things Kaleesha has written: Rainbows. I know I’m biased but really, this is so, so sweet. Read it.
We got the proof copy for Kaleesha’s book “Free to Be” today!! Have I said recently how proud I am of Kaleesha? So happy to be sharing life with her and looking forward to sharing many more of her future accomplishments. We will be ordering our first batch of copies of her book in the next day or two and should have them to sell by late next week.
I’ve been reading the 1st draft of Kaleesha’s book and just about finished. She concludes with a kind of endnotes regarding her exploration of 14+ year exploration of Christianity and religion. At the end so that those that don’t want to be bothered with reading the details about religion don’t have to… I have to say, it is very interesting seeing the work she put into questioning what she’d been told was the truth. She’s not kidding when she says she studied her way out of religion. I don’t understand all the details but what I’m really curious about is how well Christians would be able to follow along. Or, put another way, how well have Christians actually read and studied the Bible and if they have really read it, really studied it, what do they think of the serious problems within it? Do they know the story of how it was written? For example, where did the story of the virgin birth come from? Who put it in there and why? It seems to be a pretty important part of the story for many people but if it’s not true, well, what other parts aren’t true? And if they have not really read it, studied it, why not?
I’m excited to be getting closer to publishing. She’s got a bit more editing to do and then it is layout time. Stay tuned.
