Write for transformation!
Regardless of faith, nationality, age or position, the journey of life is a journey of transformation.  God seeks to restore all men to His perfect image.  The question is, can He use what you are writing to help someone else in this process?  "For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12 [NASB]) Press into God as the source for your writing, digging deep into the matters of the heart, and allow Him to craft your words into a two-edged sword for His Kingdom purpose. 

We welcome you to join our enthusiastic group of developing writers as we hone our skills in our monthly teachings, 
read-arounds or critique sessions.  Success is the direct result of our commitment to God's vision for our lives.  We are here to give you the tools you need to walk out God's Plan for your writing.  And we hope that you will take advantage of what we have to offer by actively participating and putting these tools to use.
