My life as a writer began in high school. My English teacher, Mrs. Holloway, encouraged my interest in writing by urging me to enter a local college writer’s contest. So, with hope in my heart, I entered two of my stories and waited eagerly for the outcome.
While one story didn’t make it off the ground, my other story earned First Place in the Fiction category. I knew then, I wanted writing to be a part of my life, but I wanted to do more than entertain or inform. I wanted the Lord to use my writing for His glory and to infiltrate His truths into the hearts of readers.

BEING A WRITER
Being a writer isn’t something I do, it’s something I can’t not do. it’s part of who I am. When it comes to speaking, I’m a lot like Moses “slow of tongue and speech”. LOL! So when I want to communicate something well, I write it. That’s the way God made me. And that’s okay. He gave us all different gifts. The important thing is that we use the abilities He’s given us to draw others to Him.
Whether your gift is writing, speaking, teaching, skilled nursing, adopting children, or whatever the Lord lays on your heart to do, use it as a means to glorify Him.
OUR TRUE PURPOSE
We may never do anything earth-shaking in this life, but if we’re faithful to our calling, we’ve fulfilled our true purpose for our lives. I’m a writer by choice and also by God’s design. I believe that with all my heart.
I’ll likely never be a highly-acclaimed author sought after by millions of readers, but that’s not my intent. If a few hearts are encouraged in their faith or touched by the words I pen, I’ve succeeded. Each time I hear from a reader who is genuinely inspired by what I write, my heart rejoices and my true purpose as a writer is fulfilled.
**How about you? What gift or purpose has the Lord burned on your heart to fulfill? I’d love to hear how He’s working in your life.
