Worship While You Wait

, by

  Waiting is one of the most difficult of all the spiritual disciplines. In our hurried, driven, fast-paced culture we have lost the art of waiting well. If there’s a long line at the grocery store or coffee shop, we sigh and wonder if it’s worth it. We use microwaves and Instant Pots. God, however, is in the waiting. He uses delay in our lives to sharpen us and set the stage for His future plans. We see this in the Psalmist David’s life. David was well-acquainted with waiting. Many Bible scholars feel he waited at least seventeen years before…

A Chat with Author Becky Harling

, by

Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing Becky Harling, a renowned speaker and multi-published author, whose life mission is to awaken hope by pointing people to Jesus. And we could all use hope, couldn’t we? Welcome, Becky! I understand your new book, Listen Well, Lead Better, was cowritten with your husband, Steve. Please tell us about the book. Listen Well, Lead Better helps leaders at any level consider how well they’re listening. Since listening is 80% of good communication, leaders might be sabotaging their own influence with their listening skills. In Listen Well, Lead…

A Chat with Author Becky Harling

, by

Marti Pieper here! Welcome to up-and-down Mount Dora, Florida (where the temperatures bounce almost every day), and an author interview with the lovely Becky Harling. I first met Becky at a conference three years ago in nearby Orlando, although we’ve been cyber-friends much longer than that. At the time, Becky had broken her ankle and was having lots of adventures driving a motorized cart for the first time. I had an adventure of my own when I returned the cart to the rental counter for her (no lives were lost). Let’s hear from Becky about her books and her life—both…

Tips from the Pros: Becky Harling

, by

Greetings from Marti Pieper in almost-fall Ohio! I’m visiting here for a few weeks as I help my mom clean out and pack up in preparation for her move to a retirement community. So in the midst of not-so-normal days, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to introduce someone who’s one of those friends I’ve never met. Becky Harling and I have traded prayers, reviews, support and encouragement online for a few years now without yet meeting in person. I read and loved her 30 Day Praise Challenge and am thrilled to re-introduce Becky to our CAN readers. Praise and…

Tips from the Pros: Becky Harling

, by

Greetings from Sarah Sundin from Oregon, where I’m visiting family. Today I have the privilege of interviewing Becky Harling, the author of Rewriting Your Emotional Script and a speaker with a dynamic ministry of hope and healing. Becky, how did you get into writing? I felt for many years that God was calling me to be a writer, but didn’t know how to get started. God brought Linda Dillow into my life as a mentor and she connected me with Navpress. Navpress actually called me and invited me to send them a proposal. They turned down the first three proposals I sent in but told…
