Tips from the Pros: Becky Harling

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 me to come back because they liked the way I wrote. They felt I wasn’t clear on my message yet. Turns out, they were right! I finally learned through a whole lot of tears how to write authentically from my brokenness.
