  1. That's a good one, not that any are not good! Thanks for sharing, Lynn!
  2. Hey, everyone! About 1 1/2 years ago, I was looking for ideas for my devotional writing. I sent out a Facebook request to my friends to inquire about their favorite Bible verses and tried to include some of these verses in my writing. It was a good way to connect with some of my readers and also to get ideas to overcome writer's block. I thought I would ask this group of friends on Christian Writers about their favorite verses. Who's to say? (Me, I guess.) Your favorite verse might just be the topic of my next devotion! So, please share your favorite verse or passage in the comments to this post. Thanks!
  3. Hi, Zee. Maybe your niche is short stories. It can be a real gift to write concise works. I used to be bothered to by the fact that I had difficulty with writing longer works, but have now accepted that the shorter stuff can be good as well. I write a lot of devotions (about 350 words or so. You can always combine short stories or devotions into a compilation project. Don't be discouraged!

  12. Unidiomatic? Another word I didn't know, and not for sure if I still do. I'll have to look it up. Thanks!
  13. Thanks so much for commenting, Dee! I am really happy that you are reading my devotions!
  14. Hi, KR. I want to encourage you to keep writing, if it's something you enjoy. Success isn't always measured in the number of people who read your work, but in the one or two people who benefit by what you write. I'm praying for you!
  15. “…you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love…” (Jonah 4:2, NIV). The phrase “slow to anger” appears multiple times throughout the Old Testament of the Bible. It is a fitting descriptor of God, especially when compared to the quick-tempered and short-fused character, Jonah. Jonah refused to travel to the city of Ninevah, not because he was too busy for the trip, but solely due to self-serving motives. Jonah was petty and judgmental. He did not want to preach his divinely assigned message to the Ninevites, because he did not want them to repent and receive God’s mercy. Jonah would have much rather seen the city and people of Ninevah in ruins. Unlike Jonah, God is “slow to anger”. He doesn’t react in a knee-jerk sort of way. God is patient when it comes to dealing with sin and the short-comings of people. God is fair and just, but he is merciful and gracious as well. The Ninevites experienced the amazing grace of God, and we can, too. God is “slow to anger” and desires a relationship with each of us!
  16. Thank you, Dee! Your comments are very encouraging!
  17. Thank you so much, Dee, for responding! I love that you found my devotion helpful!
  18. Great video, Alley! I didn't know, at first, if her instruction would apply to non-fiction writing, but, in many cases, it does. Thanks for the video!
  19. Wow, Lynn! In-depth article. Thanks for sharing with us!
