2013: Embracing a New Season

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great NYE and are excited about 2013! I had a wonderful time with my family and close friend at the Watch Night NYE service at The Potter's House here in Dallas. It was a powerful night of worship, praise and ministry to ring in the new year. For me, and I'm sure you feel this way also, a new year is not just a change of date on the calendar. It's a new beginning. It's a fresh start. It's an opportunity to begin again, learning from the victories and failures of the prior year and become wiser, stronger and better.

This year, I am beginning a new season in my life as a new author. As I'm sure you've noticed, with the lack of recent blog posts, I have been quite busy the last few months preparing for today's launch of my new book, Break Every Chain.

Last week, I had the joy of receiving my first hard copy of the book in the mail and was completely elated. (Hence, the picture below). :)


I'm so excited about this project and the new season that is emerging with the release of the book. Here are some of the changes that are coming soon, including a new home for the blog!

  • As of today, January 1st, BeautyMarked will move to my new website, emonnemarkland.com, along with the release of Break Every Chain. When I first began Beauty Marked in 2011, formerly known as Beauty Marked Mom, the Lord clearly spoke to me about the importance of focusing the majority of my writing efforts on my book, as it was His will for me to begin to act upon the projects that He'd put on my heart. Writing here at BeautyMarked was a wonderful place for me to encourage and interact with other women, discuss important issues, and grow in my writing skills. I want to personally thank you for being a part of my journey here, and welcome you to join me at emonnemarkland.com as we embark on a new year and new season together!
  • BeautyMarked's facebook page will close as well and my new author page will be the primary facebook page to stay in touch with all blog posts, book news, giveaways and more. "Like" my new author page for a chance to win a personalized autographed copy of Break Every Chain!

I know that God is on the move in our lives and have such an excitement for this new year. I want to personally invite you to join me on my new journey for 2013. Let's continue to encourage each other on social media and obtain all that God has for us in the new year!

See you at the new site!
