I am that person who needs to write things down to understand and process my thoughts and ideas, so writing and blogging have become the natural and necessary outflow of my teaching and speaking.
I have found writing to be a great way to slow down my busy life and take time to stop at the crossroads and consider the right road. While some other Christian authors and Christian women’s blogs may preach to you or offer instruction, my approach is one of two-way mutual benefit. I sincerely seek to learn from you as you hopefully learn from me. Guided by God’s grace and wisdom, a particular passage from the Bible, or the everyday messes of life, I try to offer insight, seek truth, ask questions, engage my audience, and participate in an ongoing conversation.
I am intentional about continuing to grow and learn on my journey, to search for deeper meaning, and to live a life worthy of God’s calling. I am focused not only on trying to help and inspire those who walk beside me on the journey but want to connect with those who are ahead of me on the path by seeking their advice, counsel, and wisdom.
Being a member of the Redbud Writers Guild has given me opportunities to connect with a diverse community of Christian women who communicate to empower women to use their voices to be world-changers. These authors, writers, and speakers inspire me to grow and use my influence to impact culture and faith.
Seeking to hone and sharpen my skills also includes attending conferences such as Write-to-Publish and the Ohio Christian Writers Conference where I received a Blue Seal award for a non-fiction article I wrote. If you are a writer or seeking to learn more about writing, I highly recommend attending one of these conferences!
DEEP SOUL CLEANSE (working title) will be a beautifully illustrated book including watercolor illustrations and elegant hand-lettered quotes by the talented artist, Vivian Kammel. This reflective devotional will take the reader through the process of allowing God’s spirit to transform from the inside out by producing the soul qualities of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
According to our production schedule, this book will be available for purchase in the fall of 2020, so continue to check the website for updates and for how you can be part of my book launch team! Here is a sneak peek of some of the gorgeous artwork that will be on each page of this devotional.
While you are waiting for the release of this devotional, you may want to purchase one of my self-published books THE WAY OF THE WILDERNESS that is available now. If you have been through any wilderness in your life and need some hope and encouragement, this short devotional will guide you, using Biblical truth, to finding the streams of living water that God provides in the wasteland.
In nine chapters, this beautifully designed book will guide you through any wilderness with truth from scripture, interactive journal pages, resource lists, and further Bible study. Uniquely designed for you to take out various pages with quotes, scripture, and key points to remind you of God’s truth on your journey, use this devotional for personal reflection, with a friend who may be struggling, or in a small group Bible study.
