  1. Janis there is so much hope,inspiration,truth and beauty in your words….keep on writing…lookingforward to more….thank you for your kind words over at my blog…:-)

  2. I LOVE this post. Your feelings about writing and writers’ conferences really resonate with me. I feel the same way.

    I’m so glad you got to go and found such hope there! I have DEFINITELY found out that I can’t do anything without Jesus!


  3. Carrie~thank you for your encouraging words and for your visit. I will keep on keeping on.

    Jennifer~so good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Glad this post struck a chord with you. I’m learning more and more that He is my All in All.

    From My Heart to Yours,

  4. Janis – This was so beautiful! Strictly from a “writing” perspective, I just loved how you wove your words. Some of your expressions were downright poetic…really! You have a lovely “voice” on the page – and I am excited to see where God takes you.

    The constant – Jesus. Yes, oh yes…how true!

    Sounds like a wonderful conference. Who were some of the authors you met?

    The thing I can only do with Jesus – the blog is the biggest “creative” endeavor I have ever tried. He truly provides the thoughts, and the words.


    P.S. Thanks for the email, Janis – I sent a reply back to you. Trust that Chip is continuing to heal – and Marty sent an extra prayer for him today!!

  5. “the feet tapped a satisfied beat”…

    janis, this is so well worded. i LOVE that you were able to find peace and fulfillment at this conference… i know, only too well, the rejected manuscript, and the frustrations… but, as proven here, you have a gift. don’t give up! don’t ever stop writing. you bring him glory, sister.

  6. Sharon,
    You have been a true blessing to me as a friend, writer, and lover of dogs (who are like our kids).
    Your opinion of this “different” style of writing for me means a lot.

    Chip is healing, and I’m sure he will be back to his normal self soon.

    Thank you for dropping by.

    From My Heart to Yours,

  7. Oh, emily,
    This was a real reach for me. Thank you for encouraging me and giving me the opportunity to try my hand at “imperfect prose”. I pray my heart’s desire will always be to give Him glory.

    From My Hear to Yours,

  8. I love your writing Janis… glad you are embracing the wonderful ‘talent’ He has gifted you with…

    much love xxx
