Chapter One

I am truly proud to say that my dad has finished his very first novel! Now, this is no small task. If you are a writer then you know 7404623584_660a48e86c_n just how much time and effort is put into every word, punctuation and page to make it exactly how you envisioned it. His first book is The Light of Ordaya by Gary Swensen. This is a fiction fantasy novel and I love reading the words knowing that my dad created it all! To me I look at the finished work of books as art, every word delicately and creatively thought out.  As a writer myself I could not be more proud nor could I be more respectful of his art! If you have a list of books that you are working your way through you should definitely put my dad’s on there! Not only will you get to enjoy the great story but you will be supporting a local writer as well! Happy reading!

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 (NIV)

Each one of us has been given specific talents, dreams, and passions in life. Mine is writing and helping encourage Christian moms. I did not know exactly what God wanted me to do with my writing for a while and then He prompted me to start this site. Now I look forward to my time to write everyday! Lately God has placed a new passion on my heart… helping other aspiring writers. Maybe you love to write, but don’t know where to start. Well, join the Raising Inspiration network! I am now going to be featuring guest blogs on the site. So, if you have a passion to write then please join the network! I ask that each blog consists of a minimum of 300 words, has either two Bible verses and/or quotes and comes with a picture or video. All you need to do is pick a topic and let the writing begin! Once you have written your blog you can send it to me via the contact page and I will be sure to let you know when your post will be up on the site. Also, if you have any questions about how to pick a topic, piece together your blog, or anything, I am happy to help! It’s time for us to join together and use our creative gifts God has given us to encourage, inspire, and challenge other moms out there! God has placed a story on each of our hearts that we are meant to hear… so please share it with us all! I look forward to seeing what God will do with the growing network of Raising Inspiration! Now… time for you to go blog!
