Writing and Walking Through Our Life

I  write, and I write, and I write. I write conference, workshop material, books, marketing copy, and blogs. Yes, I write.

Writing my memoir is a process. It is a process of walking through my life, and at the same time looking at the past, and keeping the past the past.

This morning at 9 a.m. I changed my focus for my memoir one more time. I shall be 60 soon, and I have years of life behind me.

This morning I am settling on my focus. I will be writing with transparency the ups and downs from when God called me to lead, years ago, to today. 

My first book was, “A Hurting Heart Turned Inside Out.” This story will be told by looking on the inside at myself, and sharing with my readers.

It is time. It is a time for honesty and for transparency.

Selah (Pause) Continuing on. I hope you stay on journey with me, as I write and share what is going on with me. 

AND

maybe by telling my story, you will no longer feel as if you are living on an island as a woman who leads.

Snow, Writing, and Cardio

This morning I opened my eyes to the land of snow.

I enjoy sitting at my desk today, because life only requires me to go outside for a short time.

This morning I opened my eyes to the land of snow. I enjoy sitting at my desk today, because life only requires me to go outside for a short time.

I live in a place where we are to share snow removal duties for our small porch, but usually I am the one who grabs the shovel and gets the job done!

I try to remind myself, this provides me with my cardio workout without going to the gym. It costs me nothing!

In this season of my life, the majority of what I am doing requires me to sit. This means I need to intentionally get up and get going!

I will be back with a 2nd post to share an inside look on my current marketing, for my writing.  Then I will be working on the cover and back of the book, “Quotes from the Heart for Women Leaders.”

I will share a little about podcasts, interviews and linking arms with others.

Writers Write, They Do Not Only Talk About Writing

Nancy, youtube, memoir, announcement (3)

I cannot recall a time when I was not writing. Whether it was writing a paper in high school, in college, in journals, business letters, partner letters, copy for videos, audios and finally online and in books.

A few years ago I stumbled on a site and began placing my teaching material on the site. Now, some of this material is in my books.

If you write online, save your writing friends. You never know when the time will arrive and you will desire to use it in a book.

My writing from 2011.

The Instigator

Today I as I read Acts 19 I focused on the riot in Ephesus that was started by one instigator named Demetrius. He was concerned about the loss of his income. Behind the scenes he insinuated future problems.

All it takes is one person behind the scenes to stir up the people around him to cause problems. People such as Demetrius never operate in the public eye they usually operate behind the scenes.

Most of us at one time in our life, may experience the problems that someone like Demetrius causes. Although this may not be an all out riot, their words seriously affect our life.

What did Paul do? Did he set out to confront Demetrius? No, he just kept moving forward preaching and teaching the Gospel. He kept his eye on the prize!

Paul speaks from his prison cell in Philippians 1:12-14

Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.

Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.

Reminder for my readers today; As you share the gospel there will be those that will oppose you. They will oppose you to your face and they will oppose you behind the scenes just as Demetrius did.

In fact those who oppose you, may be other Christians. The key is, just as Paul did, even from a prison cell, just keep moving forward. There will always be the Demetrius’s in our world

Reading is for Writers and Others Too

Reading is for readers and for others too. Not only is it possible for reading to be enjoyable, but reading will increase our creativity and assist us to understand worldviews outside of our own.
