I don't usually send out an email when new content is released. I update you on my writing in the monthly newsletter. Today is different. Episode 13 of JUBILEE on Kindle Vella has been released. While we've talked about JUBILEE in the monthly newsletters, this episode was so hard for me to write and so important that I think it warrants coming into your inbox "off schedule". 

I'm also sending this email because I promised to share "exclusive subscriber content" with you. I talk to you guys about things that I may not post on my socials. I go into more emotional depth with subscribers. As I lean into this next season of life...it's a big one and BIG THINGS are happening... I want you to be a part of it because you've been with me on this journey to purpose. Some of you have been here since PAR FOR THE CURSE in 2009 when it all began. THANK YOU! Some of you have newly arrived. THANK YOU! Thank you for allowing my words into your life. I am grateful. I thank God for you, and I pray for you guys all the time. 

So... what is Episode 13 and why did I write it?

If you are following the story of Gwen and her pursuit of Pastor Knightly, don't worry. There are no spoilers to the main storyline in Episode 13. You can read this email without messing up your groove. Episode 13 gives you some backstory on why Gwen is so hell bent on being a success at the bureau. It also gives insight into why she will not stop until she exposes Pastor Pryor Knightly. 

I first wrote a version of this scene into my feature script, REDEEMER'S LIGHT, which is currently being shopped to major Hollywood studios. So, say a prayer for that. I'm not sure if you know this, but when you sell a script in Hollywood it doesn't necessarily get made. While I greatly appreciate God's provision, the check for selling the script, we also want REDEEMER'S LIGHT to get a greenlight to move from the page to the screen. Amen? Amen! 

THE HEARING, episode 13, brings us back to Pastor Bacon. He's the first pastor that Gwen put behind bars. He's up for parole and Gwen decides that she must make a statement to the board so that he remains in prison. Her full testimony is compelling...IMHO...I wrote it. Per my contract with Amazon, I cannot share the entire episode with you. However, I want to share the final words of her testimony. If you don't read the full story of JUBILEE, I pray you read Episode 13. 

After reading from a prepared speech Gwen gets overcome with emotion and starts to cry. This angers her because she's not a crier. She's upset that her experience with Pastor Bacon still has such power. She crumbles the speech into her clenched fists and speaks from her heart. 

“I am currently serving a life sentence. It was rape. It was incest. It was a hate crime. There is no parole. There is no pardon. There is no expungement of the terrifying memories that plague me. His sentence should not be shorter than mine.”

That moment was important for Gwen, and it was important for me. We cannot change the terrible things that may have happened in the past. We cannot go back to create a different childhood. We can't go back to fix the broken things in our rearview. While the memories of the past will remain with us forever, those of us who believe in Jesus can decide to pick up our mats and walk. That's what Gwen does here. She realizes that the abused little girl will always be with her...it's a life sentence...but the little girl no longer has permission to lead the way Gwen lives her life. 

I made the same decision twenty-five years ago. I want to help you make it too... the decision to pick up your mat and walk into the abundant life Jesus has given you. "The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life." John 10:10 NLT
