When I was in college, my professor said I had a knack for feature writing. She even recommended me above all her students to a newspaper seeking a feature writer while I still had a semester of college to complete. I didn’t get the job, but I got a fire for writing that helps others.
If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, I use my posts to share personal stories of how I overcome my insecurity, fear and struggles as a wife and mother. My hope is that you gain some encouragement and tools to overcome yourself. Because Paul declares that “we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
Today I’m starting a study through James, which many consider the book of “how to be a Christian.” It’s practical and filled with the tools you need to grow in your walk of faith.
I have a few Bible verses around my house as reminders of the Lord’s goodness and mercy. Two of these are from James –
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)
“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12).
These remind me that the Lord is near and walking beside me through every step of every struggle.
So, I’m going to be studying this book for the next month. I need a refresher course in the “how-to” and I’d love to have you join me.
And a fun part of this is that I’m teaming up with hundreds of other ladies to do Denise J. Hughes’ James study from Feb. 17-March 24.
You can join in for free at WordWriters.us/James. You can also order the book at this link.
Drop me a comment on this post if you’re interested in joining and go grab that free reading plan. There’s even a book to write through the book of James.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts each day on my Facebook Page. Please join me!
