Commit Your Way to the Lord

Commit Your Way to the Lord

Psalms 37:4&5

Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.

Tips For A Best Seller

As a writer, I read many blogs written by writers. I think it is important to never stop learning. Cec Murphy has a series running on how to write a best seller. I hope you enjoy it.


So what makes a best seller?

            No one knows. If there were a secret formula, everyone would use it.

            Some authors attempt to get a number of people to purchase their book online on the day of release. (They can order any time in advance, but the sales figures count only for the day of release.) That shoots the number of sales up. Click here to read the rest of this article and the entire series.


True Religion

Does God Want Us To Adopt?

You may be wondering right now, “Does God want us to adopt?” Well, I can’t tell you that. However you might want to consider James 1:27.

“This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”


What does the Greek word for visit in this verse mean? It is much deeper than our simple word visit. It means to select, to go to see, to relieve, to look out for, to visit.


The Story Inside You


I am so excited about today’s featured post. The article is inspiring and just what a writer needs to read. Have you ever been inundated with story ideas from well-meaning friends and relatives? They mean well but those ideas are their story ideas. The ones the writer has, are the ones that should be written down.

So remember, your story ideas are the ones that you should be writing. And yes, ideas from others can be very helpful and should be considered. But the basic story inside you, is the one that should be written.


Many years ago, before I’d even opened a blank document on my laptop, I imagined the sort of novel I might write someday. It would be an Important Book, one that would unveil a deeper aspect of the human experience.

Maybe, if I were lucky, the book would be reviewed by The New York Times and shortlisted for a few awards. My former classmates would read the book and tell me it brought them to tears, and my name would be mentioned in the same breath as Anne Tyler and Richard Russo. Perhaps Jeffrey Eugenides would invite me around for tea. Click here to read all about it.
