This episode was teachings we did to begin our Virtual Writing Retreat in August. However, we wanted to share these with you.

Today's topic is: Preparing Our Hearts to Write

Many times, we feel like a jar of dirty water after it’s been shaken. We need time to settle and become still before the Lord.

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!
