In Matthew 2, we read about some “wisemen” who traveled from the East to bring gifts along with their worship of this newborn King of the Jews. Scholars believe they came from Babylon (modern day Baghdad, Iraq) or perhaps Persia (modern day Iran). In either case, they would have traveled 900-1200 miles by camel and arrived when Jesus was anywhere from 6 months to 2 years old.

You can imagine how excited they would have been to finally arrive at their destination. We read these words in Matthew 2:10-11,

“When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”

In hindsight, each of these wisemen would have said it was worth the trip to see this newborn King Jesus with their own eyes. As Kingdom Writers, we will also look back on our lives and say our writing journey was worth the trip, regardless of how arduous.

Time flies so fast when you’re having fun, right?

Well time sure has flown for us since first launching Christian Book Academy with a beta group in February 2015 with 25 members. Over the years, God has blessed us and we've been able to help hundreds of authors write, self-publish, and market their books.

As we celebrate our 8 year memberversary, we hosted a group writing session called the 15-Minute Writer.

For some writers, there simply isn't enough time in the day to get all the writing done. This group writing session will help you improve your writing skills and if you haven't tried a group writing session, you'll be amazed at what you can get done in 15 minutes.

Your story needs to be told so here is your shot at getting those thoughts out of your head, into the world and onto paper. Not only will you get valuable writing tips but you'll have time to share with other like-minded writers.

So join us at the 15-minute writer group writing session and unleash your creative juices! This works for writing your marketing content as well as writing a book.
