Greetings from Marti Pieper in heading-toward-summer Mount Dora, Florida. My husband and I are enjoying this brief season when we can still leave our windows open at night for some cool air. I believe the subject of today’s interview, author/speaker/missionary Grace Fox, is experiencing slightly different temperatures in her home in British Columbia, Canada. But I’m sure the warmth of her personality more than makes up for any chill in the temperature. Grace and I have enjoyed our connection as Christian authors and speakers, and we have grown to appreciate and pray for each other although we have yet to meet in person. I know you’ll enjoy hearing her thoughts and wise advice in this CAN encore interview.

Welcome back, Grace! Let’s start with the basics: How many books do you have published?

Grace Fox

That sounds great. Could you please share a few of your latest titles?

One mistake I repeatedly made early in my writing career, was, as I sat down to write an article, newsletter or a chapter in a book, I neglected to first take the time to organize my thoughts.

I ended up wasting lots of time writing and rewriting as I would try figure out where I was really going with my topic.

Before you begin to write, focus on how you will organize your ideas by answering the following questions:

Who is My Audience?

Part of narrowing your focus is defining your audience.  Are you writing for women ages 40 and above? Are you targeting mothers of pre-school children or men in leadership positions?  Read More →

Bill and Pam Farrel

Bill and Pam Farrel

Bill and I are known as relationship specialists; experts on love and romance and marriage educators. We have even been called “The Barbie and Ken of Love”.  Our ministry is www.Love-Wise.com and our goal is to help people in all their most vital relationships by intersecting God’s wisdom with people’s desire to be loving. So what this means is we need to live out our love! We need to make every effort to get along, work through issues, and give plenty of mercy and grace to protect our marriage. PamandBill is like one word.

We are unified, our brand is “us”.

You have a brand too.

You are an expert in something . . .or you wouldn’t have a book.

How hard are you working at protecting the brand? Are you watching over the little things in your life?

The Bible tells us this is a priority in MANY places– here are two:

Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough? Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump . .  . (1 Cor 5:6-7)

Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. (Proverbs 4:23)

The A Priority is to guard our life and protect the gift God gave.

Which part of the Proverb would you choose to live out?:

(A) He who walks in integrity walks securely,

or

(B) But he who perverts his ways will be found out. (Proverbs 10:9)

Well done- you selected A!  Wise Choice!

Are you praying for a “best seller”? Consider this marketing method:

He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity (Proverbs 2:7)

For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face. (Psalms 11:7)

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psalms 84:11)

7 Simple Skills for Every Woman by Pam Farrel

7 Simple Skills for Every Woman by Pam Farrel

In my newest book, 7 Simple Skills for Every Woman: Success in Keeping It Together, I share that on my desk are several items to remind me that it is imperative to “practice what I preach”:

1. Photos of me with Bill as well as photos of our children, grandchildren, mentees, parents– all those whose lives I would undermine if I cheated on my vows.

2. A compass given to me by a wise mentor in leadership who said, “Let God’s voice be your compass”

3. All my Bibles. Looking at God’s Word all day every day reminds me to be in it– and to let it impact the way I live.

4. A barnacle attached to a stone as a reminder that a barnacle cannot live apart from the stone just as I cannot survive apart from Christ, the Rock of my Salvation.

5. A frame with verses about living with integrity visible on the front– and stories of the harmful wake others in leadership left when they wandered from Christ.

6. A heart paper weight to remind me to have a whole heart for God.

7. A figurine with an umbrella on it, reminding me I want to stay under “God’s umbrella of blessing” For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord, You surround him with favor as with a shield. (Psalms 5:12)

8.A turtle because if you see a turtle on a fence post you should ask, “How did that turtle get there? Turtles can’t climb so someone placed the turtle on high. In the same way, God gave me my platform, so God can take me down. “Be humble in the Lord’s presence, and he will honor you.” (James 4:10)

What will you place on your desk to remind you that “those that honor God. God honors“?(1 Sam 2:30)

Guard your heart and your life . . .  that is guarding your brand.
