Happy Friday, CANNERS! Janice Thompson here.  IMG_3433 

Today I want to talk with you about stirring up the gifts God has placed inside of you. 

Every writer has the innate, God-given desire to do
something majestic with the gift he/she has been given. I don’t know about you,
but I want to be all I can be for Him. Why? Because I know the gifts God has placed
in me were put there to reach out to others—to woo them toward their Savior.
The brighter I blaze, the greater my witness. But, how do we go about stirring
up those God-given gifts? Isn’t that His job, after all?

  • What about
    you? Do you want to do something majestic with the gift you’ve been given?
  • Do you
    want to be a superb meteor? Why or why not?

Hello all,


T.L. (Tracy) Higley here, with my very first CAN blog post! I’ll be posting on the first Wednesday of every month, and for the next twelve months I’m inviting you on a journey, through an experimental year for me, and one that I hope will prove helpful for you as well.

Before we get to the experiment, a bit of background:  Currently, I am writing historical suspense for B&H Books. The third book in my Seven Wonders series, Guardian of the Flame, releases in a month.

 

But as with most of you, I’m sure, the majority of my income comes from elsewhere. For me, that income is generated from a retail business I started about five years ago, selling craft and hobby supplies online. The business started as sort of a fluke, but as I learned more about retail, it grew, and within two years was doing well enough to be our family’s sole source of support. We have continued to grow in the three years since then, and I feel very blessed by the success there, as it has allowed me to pursue writing with more freedom.

April and may 2009 Ecuador and speaking 209 Hey, friends! Jennifer Devlin here with a CAN Board member post. Today, I want to focus on the importance of staying "prayed up" as we serve God through writing and speaking. Prayer is not only the foundation of everything we do in life and ministry; it is absolutely essential to our success and survival as we endure struggles, disappointments, triumphs and victories.
