I am not a pastor.
I am not an ordained minister,
but I am a Christian who desires to see others use their talents and gifts effectively for the kingdom of God.
For years I attended church unsure about my calling. I served as an usher, a Sunday school teacher, and a nursery worker. I participated in the women’s day program occasionally by making the church announcements or by reading a scripture. I do not sing well so being on the Praise Team was not an option.
My pastor had spent some time teaching about the gifts of the spirit, but I still felt lost.
I had always enjoyed writing, yet I never really viewed writing as a calling until a few years ago. In 2014, I came across a devotional magazine which accepts short meditations from its readers. I submitted a few. I haven’t had any published yet so I decided to start a blog.
Now, I am confident that God is preparing me to use my writing to minister to others. He has given me this talent, but it is my responsibility to develop my craft. I am involved with several programs which are geared towards helping writers improve their craft. I am learning from some of the best Christian writers in the industry.
