I copyedited Thomas Heaton’s book, obtained his revisions, and then proofread his final layout within about two weeks. Thomas talks about his experience working with me during this brief segment (40 seconds).

“Josh was incredible to work with. Although I had written my own book, I was having a hard time capturing a description. Josh beautifully articulated what I had been trying to type up for myself but had been unable to do.

“The version Josh wrote was very polished, poised, and beautifully articulated. I was very thankful to have worked with Josh.”

Mark Twain Cave Signature

Searching for Sam Clemens’s Long-Lost Wall Etching and Finding America

Two hundred years after its discovery, a cave made famous by Mark Twain’s cultural masterpiece, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, has finally revealed its greatest secret, and I had to see it for myself.

My family and I are driving from South Florida to the Pacific Northwest. My hair is still matted from camping overnight at an obscure but immaculate state park in Southern Illinois. I spend breakfast people watching at the town gas station where the unexpected rural hubbub is a new spectacle for this East-Coast traveler more comfortable in Asia than the Heartland. After two years abroad, my hope for this trip is to rediscover Americana—to see past divisive differences through to what makes America.

Promotional Book Summary [5/5]

After seven miscarriages and three failed adoptions, where do you find the strength to pursue your dream of parenthood?

Bethanee Syversen’s deeply personal debut, Mustard Seed Faith: A Journey through Infertility, Miscarriages, Adoption, and Faith, is a story of believing in a God who is powerful enough—and generous enough—to do the impossible.

Bethanee always wanted to be a parent. When the doctors gave their prognosis, she had to decide where her strength would come from. She and her husband chose to trust in God. Each negative pregnancy test, each unexpected loss, and each adoption delay would test her heart’s resolve. However, through every blow, Bethanee discovered that God doesn’t give up. He never goes away. And He never leaves His children unrestored. Now a mother of six, Bethanee has experienced the hardship and joy of becoming a mom through birth and through adoption.

Much of Mustard Seed Faith comes from Bethanee’s blog, which captured the raw emotion of her story as it unfolded. In part one, Bethanee confronts the heartbreak of infertility and the private grief of multiple miscarriages. In part two, she recounts the physical toll and emotional extremes of adopting. For many, Bethanee’s fourteen-year journey is all too familiar, but it is her uncommon faith in God’s good and sovereign plan that inspires readers to keep hoping, keep praying, and keep believing.
