Cultivating a Love of Writing by Tracy Krauss

Cultivating a Love of Writing by Tracy Krauss

Consider the Future I grew up in small town Saskatchewan, surrounded by a sea of grain fields and nurtured by an agricultural mindset. To make a living as a farmer, one has to have tenacity in the face of uncontrollable obstacles. Grain prices fluctuate, markets can collapse, and nobody but Jesus can control the weather! “Next year…” is probably the

7 Valentines for the Writing Craft by Violet Nesdoly

7 Valentines for the Writing Craft by Violet Nesdoly

It hit me recently that I’ve been at this writing thing for 20+ years. I sold my first story—a Keys for Kids devotion—in March of 1997. Perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised, then, that the honeymoon with the writing craft is long past and some days my love for it falters. I’ve done many things to keep that love alive. Here

12 Ways to Develop a Love for Prayer by Steph Beth Nickel

12 Ways to Develop a Love for Prayer by Steph Beth Nickel

Some of my brothers and sisters in Christ spend a great deal of time in prayer. They love to dwell in the Lord’s presence. They faithfully bring their requests before Him—and the requests of others. When they say, “I’ll be praying for you,” you can count on them to do so. And then there are those of us who want

Cultivating a Love of Writing by Janice L Dick

I have loved the written word as long as I knew it existed. One of my favourite early memories is of accompanying my mother to the grocery store and reading as many Little Golden Books as possible while she paid for her purchases.

Word of the Year by Brenda J Wood

The latest fad is to choose a word to define your coming year. While you can decide on one all by yourself, the internet will give you a million ways to pick one. Why you can even pay for the privilege. Many of the sites I checked out suggest you choose your word based on yourself and what you think

A Premise is a Promise by Pamela Mytroen

A Premise is a Promise by Pamela Mytroen

Every story hinges on the premise, which is the idea that drives the story from beginning to end. The premise is a short blurb, often found on the back cover. The author may or may not write it out, but it is always there, at the very least in the author’s mind before and during the writing process. How do

Accountability Accountable by Tracy Krauss

Accountability Accountable by Tracy Krauss

Accountability. No matter how I try to sidestep this particular word, it keeps coming to me as I ponder my goals for 2017. A friend posted one of those “fun” activities on Facebook where people are asked to comment. I don’t often participate in these types of things, but this one sounded interesting. It asked readers to come up with

Start the Year with One Word by Violet Nesdoly

Start the Year with One Word by Violet Nesdoly

Happy New Year! By now you’ve probably switched calendars, thought about—maybe even listed—a few resolutions and goals for the year, and caught yourself writing 2016 instead of 2017 a time or two. Plus, you may have chosen your one word for 2017.
