Telling Our Stories

Congratulations to the winner's of the Proverbs 31 Magazine writing contest: Carol Hatcher, Amy Brooke, and Miss Sandy! Kudos also to the Honorable Mentions: Sumi, Linda, Dee Dee, and Jess. I had read each of these entries on Saturday and remember being specially touched by each one. I rejoice with you all as God opens up this avenue for you to share your stories! You can read the winning entries here, and also access the complete list of one hundred or so entries here. You will be blessed by them all!

I was completely awestruck by the accounts of how God has worked in so many lives and how He has equipped so many to tell of their encounters with Him. He has definitely put forth a calling to many of us. With this idea fresh in mind, I wanted to share another writing opportunity with you all.

Jennifer Petitt of Front Yard Press is compiling a book of salvation testimonies. You can read more about the project here and find common questions and answers about the book here. So many of you had such wonderful stories of God's intervention in your lives, that I thought this project might appeal to you.

Happy writing!

Hi there,
Thanks so much for coming by my blog and for your kind words. It sounds as though we have a lot in common! I will definitely be coming back here for more visits...I can tell you have lots of great things to share!:o)And it's always nice to 'meet' new friends!
I enjoyed the P31 contest as well...there are a lot of talented ladies out there. I went to She Speaks last year, and it was a wonderful experience!
We love the Classical/CM way of homeschooling since we are a very 'literature' type of family! I just know you'll love homeschooling as well!
Once again, thanks for your visit and encouragement!
