I appreciate my wife for so many reasons, I really couldn’t list them all. But tonight I appreciate my wife, the editor.
I have several writing projects I am working on, for the story team, our missional community, and a new creative project. She has been an incredible help.
She sees things I don’t see and has great insight on how to speak to a reader. When the subject is academic, she knows how to help me bring my tone down. When it’s a profile for the Austin Stone Story Team she knows how to keep the action moving and fit a narrative arc into the space requirements. Oh, and she is absolutely rock solid with her grammar.
I love my wife for many reasons, but in so many ways her skills with language and words move me deeply. And, like many other areas in my life, she makes me better.
