Greetings from Marti Pieper in looking-almost-like-spring Seneca, South Carolina! Today I have the pleasure of introducing another dear author friend to you on the CAN blog. Cheri Cowell, whom I first met through Word Weavers International, is not only a longtime friend but a multi-published author and, for the past several years, a publisher herself. In fact, a number of years ago, I first learned about CAN through some of her posts!

Welcome, Cheri! Please tell us about your book.

Greetings from Marti Pieper in Mount Dora, Florida, where we’ve had lots of rain every day this week. And we’re not complaining, since drought conditions have led to increased fire danger. The subject of today’s interview, Cheri Cowell, has also had extra rain in her area. Since she’s one of my fellow Orlando-area CAN authors, when my home has rain, hers usually does, too!

Welcome, Cheri! I’m so glad to share this time together. My first question is one every author loves: Would you please tell us about your latest book, One Story, One Mission, One God?

Springtime greetings from Marti Pieper in Florida. I just returned from teaching at the Colorado Christian Writers Conference, and one of the first people I saw back home in Florida was my good friend, Cheri Cowell. Cheri is a prolific writer and speaker and also happens to be one of the first authors from whom I learned marketing tips. I’m delighted to share an updated interview with her today!

Cheri, how many books do you have published? 4 What are a few of your latest titles?

Living the Story: Reaching Outside the Church Walls, and Parables and Word Pictures of the New Testament in the Following God Bible study series from AMG.

You were last featured on the CAN blog in 2009. What are the chief lessons you’ve learned about the writing life since then?

We need to have a long-term view of things. A longer view helps me not get so stressed about the little things and allows me to enjoy the fruits of my labor along the way.

 That’s great advice not just for marketing, but for life in general. What are the chief lessons you’ve learned about promotion since your last CAN interview?

We can’t be experts on everything. Find what you are good at and what you enjoy and do those things well. That implies we’ve tried everything, so we do need to know about everything, just maybe not as an expert.

Cheri’s Speaking Topics:

As an author, speaker, and sidewalk theologian, Cheri Cowell brings wit, wisdom, and sound biblical teaching to the sidewalk issues of life. From a refreshing vulnerability about her own struggles with the deep questions of faith, and based solidly in her degree from Asbury Theological Seminary, Cheri brings light and understanding to those issues often avoided as “too difficult.” Questions such as:

Why does a loving God allow bad things?
Is there a way to share the Gospel without sounding preachy?
How can I know it is God’s voice and not another voice leading me astray?
Can the Bible really be trusted since it was written so long ago? Aren’t there too many contradictions?
If you are looking for a speaker for your next event that will inspire and offer sound biblical teaching, Cheri is your choice.

Living Parables

The Parables come to life through this multi-media drama presentation inspiring audiences to live parable-shaped lives as did Jesus, the Ultimate Living Parable. This is Cheri’s keynote presentation created from the research she did for her new Bible study, Parables and Word Pictures from the New Testament.

Ponderables and Parables

This application-oriented workshop gives you the tools for adopting parable-shaped lives that can transform a church, a community, and a nation. Added to the above presentation, this workshop adds the how-to to the inspiration.

StoryCraft: Reaching Outside the Church Walls

The new art of evangelism is story-sharing. In this workshop, learn to share your story as part of God’s story and become a living parable in your community and to your family. Again, this workshop can be added to the Keynote presentation for a “here’s how” to the inspiration.

Hello God, Is This Really You?

Hearing from God in a noisy world. This is based upon Cheri’s book, Direction: Discernment for the Decisions of Your Life, and includes her powerful testimony.

Diamonds in the Dust

Healing our brokenness and learning to SHINE again. This presentation is perfect for senior’s groups with its positive message and uplifting stories.

CHRIST is the Heart of Christmas

Filled with one touching story after another, this presentation will invite your women to make Christ the heart of Christmas and every day of the year. It ends with the dramatic recitation of the poem Twas the Night Before Jesus Came.
