Damaged, but still sturdy and true…

Like a rusty church bell, blasted from its tower in a war-torn country, Sophia had been knocked down and damaged, but she was still sturdy and true. With time, and a little help getting back up, I knew I’d hear from her again.

What an important thing for all of us to remember. We get knocked down. We get damaged. But we can get back up, and we can help others, too. This is a line from Suddenly Rural Girl, the Christian YA Novel I’m close to wrapping up. Soon, I’ll move into the fun and challenging publication process. For more quotes from SRG, other authors I’m reading, and updates on Suddenly Rural Girl, follow my blog at https://dannhurlbert.com/littletips or my Facebook page @Dann Hurlbert, Author.
