Mary here. I'm so happy to welcome Cheryl Wyatt today. I met her at ACFW. She has such a heart for helping. She hovers behind the scenes at ACFW working, organizing, helping to insure writers have a great experience at the conference. This same heart is scene in her post below. How can we help but know her books are just as wonderful? Yes. I am convinced. I asked Cheryl how has God led you on your writing journey. Here is what she said: 

Any Struggle I Face is Worth It

I have no doubt that God has led me from the beginning of my journey.

There have been many ups and downs. The road at times felt like smooth skating on ice and other seasons it felt like clunking over a rutty road with flat, rimless tires.

Recently I suffered some pretty devastating setbacks in my writing journey. It has never looked like I thought it would. It has never been what I wanted it to be. But it boils down to obedience and trusting God.

I know that sometimes he redirects us and sometimes that process is painful. Last year was one of those rerouting years.

Once I pressed in to God about the situations, handed over my hurts, set aside my disappointment, I was able to see his hand in the circumstances. He in turn pulled me through the confusion and discouragement to see that his plans were always better than mine.

I trust him and know that as long as he sees merit in my words, any struggle I face is worth it.

I will continue to pour them out to him as worship, praying like breathing that my books become a balm of joy, laughter, encouragement, truth, peace and blessing to my readers. 

So, your turn. In what ways has God shown himself faithful? What's one way God led you to follow your dreams? Is anything (fear, insecurity, timing, life's business) keeping you from doing so confidently? Please share. I'd love to hear from you as well as pray for you! 

Thank you for stopping by today. You are loved and appreciated! 

Mary here- I popped over to Cheryl's website and wanted to add some of her great words I found there to help us know her better:

Not even Cheryl Wyatt’s closest friends would dream that this sweet, shy intercessor plots mayhem during announcements at church. She is a Registered Nurse turned stay-at-home-mom, wife and writer who loves Jesus with all of her heart.

Joyful chaos rules her home, and she delights in the stealth moments God gives her to write. She stays active in her church and in her laundry room. She is convinced that having been born on a Naval base on Valentines Day destined her to write Inspirational Military Romance.

Cheryl loves to laugh and to make others laugh, so she often plans comedic moments for her defenseless characters in spite of their grumbling. She says it’s payback for when they refuse to obey the plots she’s set out before them.

Yeah...this is Cheryl :)


The dog is Cheryl's writing buddy, except days he decides she needs to pet him and not the keyboard. LOL! Then he paws her laptop closed on her fingers.

USA Today bestselling author and RN Cheryl Wyatt writes romance with virtue themed with rescue. She’s grateful to be a worshipper of Jesus, a mom, wife, wrangler of words and spoiled Yorkies.

Cheryl loves to connect with readers.

The Hero's Sweetheart

Titanium-willed military commander Jack Sullenberger has his rules. Small town waitress Olivia Abbott is about to break them all.

Military commander Jack Sullenberger is used to saving the day. But when his father has a stroke in his beloved small-town diner, it's waitress and EMT student Olivia Abbott coming to the rescue. Jack rushes home to tend to his father and take over the business—running right into Olivia's very strong opinions. The steely military man and the waitress can't agree on what's best for the restaurant. When Jack sees something that shakes his growing trust in Olivia, their undeniable connection is put to the test. But if Jack's open to the truth, they'll have a chance at finding a future together.

Hi Kim!
A military hero story is always heartwarming. I have enjoyed several myself. This story, though shows how much these heroes really give. You're going to love it :)

Cheryl Wyatt said...

Kim, thanks for the kind words and for stopping by. I appreciate it!

Hi Cheryl,

I met you at my first ACFW and appreciated your kindness.

I needed to read this post today. Big changes are happening to me this month, and I'm not sure how the year will evolve. But God has met me each step of the way so far, and I'm hanging onto his promise not to leave or forsake me.

Your book sounds great, and I can't wait to read it.

Cheryl Wyatt said...

Hi Jackie! Yes! I hope to see you again at ACFW in the future. I'm grateful to God that the post encouraged you. His timing is perfect, isn't it? I'm praying for you, in whatever you're going through, that you'll come out on the other side knowing Him better and having a stronger realization of how strong his love is for you, how deep his mercy is toward you and how fierce his protection and how encompassing is his compassion. May you know him more intimately as healer, savior, comforter, friend. I thank God for his promises to us and that you feel him drawing near each moment of each day. Father, bless my sister. Give her a strong sense of your loving presence and provision, Lord. We know you will provide everything she needs. Jackie, thank you for stopping by and sharing. Hugs, Cheryl
