  What is the best writing advice you have ever received? I’ve been contemplating this question for quite some time now. A thousand different words of wisdom tumble through my mind. All of them valid and valuable. But my favorite? I think I finally found the answer. At first, I thought about sharing my conversation […]

Are you following the WRITE destiny?

Are you following the WRITE destiny?

When I was young, writing was a chore. It was simply a grade, and usually a bad one at that. Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be a writer. I have experienced what Beth Moore calls a Reversal of Destiny. Basically it’s when the Lord uses a hardship in your life […]
