It's Not Really a Package Deal

Evening must make their own individual faith decision.
by Rhonda Rhea @RhondaRhea

Keep Writing, Even When Someone Tries to Sabotage Your Dreams

Don't let anyone steal your writing dreams!

What Writers Say About Writing

Inspiration for writers
by Lucinda Secrest McDowell @LucindaSMcDowel

I just spent a glorious weekend surrounded by 70 writers and speakers at “reNEW” here in New England -- all of us seeking to be “renewed in knowledge after the image of Him.” (Colossians 3.10) It’s always stretching to interact with other creative Christians and I hope you have an opportunity to do that soon, whether in a large or small gathering. Because one thing we writers love to do is be inspired by other writers!
Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorite words from some favorite authors – Enjoy!
