What difference will my book make in the world?

What difference can one person make?

Is my life really contributing very much?

“Every waterfall begins with a single drop of water”

One single drop of iodine will purify 8oz of water

One single bee can pollinate as many as 5000 flowers in a day! The lifespan of a bee is 30-60 days which means one bee could pollinate 150,000-300,000 flowers in their brief life. One bee will produce one tablespoon of honey in their lifetime. There’s a reason we use the phrase “busy bee”.

“I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.” – Ezekiel 22:30 (NLT)

God was looking for one person then and He still looks for one person today to join Him in what He’s doing on the earth.

One little boy shared his lunch of bread and fish with Jesus…which Jesus then fed 5000 with.

We need to shift from a limiting mindset to a limitless mindset. From saying it’s impossible to asking, “What is possible?”

What are the possibilities of how God could use your book? Your life?

Featured Author

This week we are featuring one of our Christian Book Academy members, Sandra Richardson.

After finishing the Procrastination to Publication Workshop, Sandra got the tools she needed to actually get her books formatted and self-published. She received information on the types of publishing and the steps to follow when publishing a book. She gained information on the various options for formatting and pricing. She learned the best way to purchase ISBNs and other gems from the course. Awesome, Sandra! 🥳

Check out her book on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Be-Still-Talk-God-Daily/dp/B0B45C7Q4B/ref=sr_1_1?crid=BYG6ZV14ANLG&keywords=be+still+and+talk+with+god+daily&qid=1657512860&sprefix=%2Caps%2C45&sr=8-1

If you are lacking the motivation to move forward in your writing, publishing, or marketing; join Shelley in this guided prayer.

This is an excerpt from our War Room prayer meeting with Christian Book Academy members. 

In this episode, we will spend time listening to God in these four steps:

  1. Ask God what is weighing you down.
  2. Ask God to cleanse you from any sin or the residue of the world.
  3. Ask God to fill you with His strength and Holy Spirit, our “power from on high” (Luke 24:49).
  4. Open your heart to receive God’s love for you and to love Him.
