This episode was originally recorded inside our Christian Book Academy group as live videos. However, we wanted to share these teachings with you.

Today's topic is: A Higher Calling

Are we willing to leave behind the world’s idea of success in order to pursue a higher calling?

Could we possibly chase after earthly success after seeing Jesus work a miracle like this in our own lives?

May we all be gloriously ruined and undone in the presence of Jesus like Peter was that day.

We hope this episode encourages and inspires.

We have a free gift for you.

One of the most important foundational things is to have in place as a Kingdom Writer is a business meeting with God to seek His strategy for marketing your books.

We have free training for you on how to get started!

In this training, you will learn the steps we recommend when having a weekly business meeting with God. The members in Christian Book Academy LOVE it and we want to share it with you too!
