Have You Defined Your Purpose?

Marketing Christian Books

Do you find yourself lacking motivation? Do the things that you used to do for your books now seem like a chore? Do you feel like you are pushing uphill most of the time?

It’s Coming Together

The Faithful Scribe

I see a permanent transformation within myself that I know is different than all the other changes I’ve witnessed in my lifetime. I have found the love of writing and I have embraced it with a sincerity like never before.

I never saw myself writing books, let alone books of fiction. Yet, I am in the midst of writing my first fiction book called REM State.

I have committed myself to rising before dawn and writing at least 500 words a day. I also try to learn something associated with writing every evening before turning in for bed. I am so excited about the change that has happened within me, and I know this change is permanent. The desire I have is strong, because I have found my passion. passionate_calling
