EVERYTHING WRITERLY has a brand new focus!

Don’t you just love it when you hear God’s voice? Not his audible voice, of course, but that “still small voice” that speaks to your heart. An epiphany. That happened to me recently. The Lord spoke to me out of the Book of Philippians. I became very convicted about how much self-promotion I’ve been doing, even though it seems a necessary evil in the publishing industry. Regardless, I clearly felt God’s prompting me to promote other Christian authors instead. Ironically, the message had been a challenge to my son Ben who has now taken over the stewardship of Faith Baptist Church in Munising, Michigan. But God’s Word spoke to my heart as well. So now, Everything Writerly will have a new focus.

Every week, I’ll feature a Christian author. He or she might be famous or not so famous. Either way, authors will have something incredible to share about their faith and their writing lives as well as their latest releases. I realize there are plenty of blogs out there that do the same thing so I’ll try to throw in a surprise or two.

Whether you’re a faithful follower of Everything Writerly or a new reader, I hope you will enjoy this blog. I look forward to your feedback.

Oh, I struggle with the whole self-promotion thing, too. I've been blogging a bit about it and see it more as God-promotion as long as my focus for writing/selling is glorifying Him. Maybe I should consider doing the same thing. It's a tough balance because if we don't sell books, nobody will hear what we want to say to glorify God.
