Stained Glass & Marriage: my newest book almost ready!

Stained Glass & Marriage coverI’m so excited that my newest book, Stained Glass & Marriage: Reflections of Light & Hope by an Imperfect Wife, is almost ready to be published and launched!

I hired the formatter and graphic designer at Fiverr, and uploaded the file to KDP at Amazon for your Kindle.

I’m also looking into a new POD company to physically print the book, and should have more info for you by tomorrow. 

What is this book about? If you feel like your marriage is over, there is still hope with Jesus Christ. 

In this new book, I share about my painful, 23-year marriage and the lessons I’ve learned through the good times and the terrible to encourage you to trust God, to stand on His faithful promises, and to never give up on your marriage. Nothing is impossible with God!

I compare marriage to the traditional art of making stained glass windows. God wants your marriage to resemble the beautiful picture of Christ and His bride, the Church. He can take the shattered pieces of your marriage, heal and restore you and your spouse, and create something beautiful out of the brokenness for His glory.

Topics in this book include:

  • Sex
  • Adultery
  • Pornography
  • Money problems
  • Communication
  • Step-parenting
  • and much more.

This will be my 12th book that I’ve written. Spiritually, the number 12 is symbolic of governmental authority. I find that interesting, especially since this is about Ray’s and my marriage.

I can’t wait for its release and am making the launch plans now.  I’ll share more with you tomorrow, so stay tuned. What are the some of the issues you’ve faced in your marriage? Whatever they are, Jesus is the answer. Leave your comments below.

Repurpose content for your audios & videos

repurpose
Are you a speaker, author, or entrepreneur and do you have a vault full of audios and videos with valuable content, and you’re wondering what you should do with them? Repurpose them!

The definition of repurpose is “to adapt for use in a different purpose.”

On my scope tonight, I shared three ways you can repurpose your audios and videos, which are listed below. (You can follow me on Periscope @bethmjones.)

  • Have your audios or videos transcribed and turn them into a blog post or  article at your website or for an article directory. Stumped over what to blog about this week or what topic to write on for an article? Listen to your audios from a webinar or a telecall, or your videos on YouTube, and repurpose the content to post a new blog or blog series at your website or blog. You can also expand on the content to write a new article. I’ve submitted some articles at Ezine Articles. There are thousands of article directories on the web. 
  • Have your audios or videos transcribed, save it as a downloadable PDF, and give it away as a freebie to your website subscribers or for new  subscribers or for a JV (Joint Venture project with a business peer) for their list or followers. Give away your best content to your subscriber list–not “fluff.” You should treat your list as GOLD–they should have your very best offerings and be the first “in the know” about your events, books published, Facebook or Twitter parties, etc. Same thing when a business peer asks if you have anything to give away for their webinar or other virtual (or live) event. Think of how a chocolate store might give away free samples of their finest chocolates. You want to give your best and have your people coming back for more goodies! 
  • Have the audios or videos transcribed and write a short eBook or expand on it for a longer book at Amazon or Barnes & Noble online. I took my signature talk that I use to speak at women’s conferences, and wrote my Amazon Best Seller eBook, The Cinderella Story: The Power of Shoes. You can take your audios and videos and write your own books or book series! Did you know that Amazon loves book series and even begins to promote your books for you if they do well?

These are just three tips to repurpose your audios and videos. I’m now offering transcription and VA (virtual assistance) services here at BethJones.net.

If you’d like assistance with transcribing your audios and videos to repurpose their content, contact me here. If you know others who might be interested, please share about my transcription/VA services. I’d love to help!
