The Writing Connection — 16 Comments

  1. Janis, I so loved reading all that God has been unfolding in your life! You have been on such an exciting journey. You have infused me with such hope & expectation that the best is yet to come 🙂 May He continue to bless your writing and open doors for you which will delight you!

  2. Janis, this is truly inspiring to read how God just connected the dots. I agree with Joanne your words create a sense of renewed hope for me. Wishing you many blessings as you continue walk out your writing journey.

    • Hi Wanda~it blesses me to know that the story of how God has led gives you renewed hope! You already shine for the Lord in all that you do on your blog–what you write and how you find others with wisdom to share.
      Great to be part of your adventure.

  3. Janis,
    You had me in goosebumps reading this post. I knew some of what you were doing but seeing it written is such a testimony to God’s work in your life. I got excited too as I read.
    My life changed as well last year. Now however I am back into the cocooning, listening and waiting period.
    We will have to connect again soon. We arrived a week ago Thursday and I think I am starting to adjust. 🙂 very hot though – not complaining – just hard to work outside.
    Blessings as you listen to God.

    • Janis, you were such an integral part of God’s writing plan for my life. Isn’t it amazing how He uses us even when we don’t know He’s doing that?
      Let’s definitely plan some time together while you’re here in AZ. I look forward to that.
      Blessings and Love,

    • Hi Ceal,
      This story has been percolating inside of me since the beginning of August. I’m so grateful for this 31-day writing challenge even though I haven’t been able to participate in all of it. The challenge lit a fire under me to write my story.
      Remember, we each have a story and a purpose even when the vision is clouded for awhile. Just look at my life to see that!
      Love you my dear friend,

  4. What an amazing writers journey. I can remember your beginnings and now see how far you have gone with it. God is so good to us if we sit back and let Him be.

    • Bobbie, it has been an amazing journey because it was all His leading, and I never expected anything like this. Taking our hands off of our dreams, plans, expectations is the hard part. Letting Him work His plan is always the best when we can let go. I know you understand.
      I see the Lord taking you on a special journey as well. And it is beautiful as He uses your artistic gifts. I wonder what His plans are for you.
      Love you,

  6. God dream for you and his leading continually amaze me. How He brings people together and urges us on as His dream continues to unfold. You are with a group that can influence your entire city for God. Thank you for sharing your interesting post with us here at “Tell Me a Story.”

    • Hi Hazel,
      God’s way of leading is amazing. It’s far beyond my comprehension but it makes me so grateful when He finds a path to lead me down that is surprising and fulfilling at the same time.
      It was a blessing to share at “Tell Me a Story.”

  7. Janis, I am actually in awe at the way God orchestrated all these things in your life! Though I shouldn’t really be surprised! He loves to work this way! What an adventure you are on – and I couldn’t be happier. Your writing talents shine, and I’m so glad they have a bigger audience now.

    Keep me posted. I have a feeling that this is just the beginning!


    • Hi Sharon~He is a pretty Awesome God!!! I am on a wonderful adventure. I just need to keep listening to where He wants me and not get caught up in other things as well. It’s interesting that you thought my writing talents were visible here because I did not feel creative or look for just the right words, picture, or mood to create my scenes in this post. And I like to do that. I felt that was missing as I tried to get this story out. Much more like reporting with a feature flair.
      Love you and blessings, Janis

  8. Janis, this is so exciting. I love this. I love how God is in every detail and how He brings dreams to life. This is way cool!! 🙂
