Writers Boot Camp Margaret Feinberg and Jonathan Merritt

Do you have a story that's burning inside you? A message that you need to share? A publishing career you're ready to finally launch?

For years, I've listened to countless people talk about writing a book. Dream about writing book. Imagine themselves on The View sharing about their book.

And. Never. Write. The. Book.

It's time for that to change. It's time for your God-given dream to come true.

That's why, alongside Jonathan MerrittI'm hosting Writers Boot Camp at my home in Morrison, Colorado, October 27-29, 2014.

Let me introduce you to my friend, Holley. Holley Gerth is the best-selling author of several books, including You’re Going to Be Okay. She's a God-sized dreamer, the wife of Mark, and a friend to YOU. Hang out with her on Twitter or Facebook.

Over the course of the next few weeks, I've invited friends from all over the blog-o-sphere to share their words in this space as we explore the mysteries of prayer during the Summer Bible Study.

And I think, “No, it’s not…but I am.”

It’s the paradox I’m learning to live with these days as my dear Grandpa Hollie faces illness and is getting ready for heaven at age 93. It doesn’t matter that I’ve written a book about being okay—it still hurts. And that’s the whole point. Continue Reading...

Let me introduce you to my friend, Carol. Carol Kent's love for the Lord and her passion for equipping, encouraging, and empowering people to live for things that matter shines through. Her readers are irresistibly drawn to see God’s astonishing “grace places” in the middle of their roadblocks. A sought-after speaker and teacher, Carol is the author of many books including her latest, Unquenchable. Carol and her husband live in Tampa, Florida. I had the privledge of meeting Carol at an Extraordinary Women event this spring.

Over the course of the next few weeks, I've invited friends to share their words in this space as we explore the mysteries of prayer during the Summer Bible Study.

Does prayer work?

by Carol Kent

As a teenager I wanted to live for something that would outlast my life.

I remember saying, “God, I’ll do anything for you.” After I graduated from college and got married, I began a home Bible study. A couple of years later I was directing women’s ministries in a large church, followed by an opportunity to teach a city-wide Bible Study Fellowship class.

But in the middle of saying, “Yes” to a speaking ministry, I was stopped in my tracks when my only child, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, was arrested for a serious crime. Continue Reading...
