Here are some cool writer's prompts from A Writer's Path. These sound like a lot of fun. Hope our readers enjoy doing these as muh as I do.
This is a very informative article and explains a lot of the issue “Why do we suffer?” It also tells us how we can be overcomers.
I want to talk about generational deliverance which includes but is not limited to generational curses. I know there is a large group within the Church, including some Charismatic and Pentecostals, that don’t believe in generational deliverance. I will address two main points they use to argue against it.
1. Jesus died to reverse the curse so there is no longer any curses to break not deliverance needed.
Correct, Jesus died to reverse the curse and ransom us. The curse is reversed but there some traveling to do until it goes back all the way. Jesus did away with the works of the enemy and flesh, if we believe in it and agree with it. So Jesus did it all. But there is an activation or appropriation that needs to happen. As in salvation, a person doesn’t just get saved but they need to believe and come into agreement with…

What a delightful story from a new author. Check out her blog:
ifyouwerehere.com. She has wonderful pictures and quips about her dog, Rufus.
My name is Cheryl Hornung, and “PEACE, HIPPO! and Other ENDANGERED ANIMALS Too” is my first children’s book. I felt that I needed to do something useful after watching a moving TV documentary on endangered animals. Since I already had a children’s website, I decided that a story would be a good way to begin.
When the website page was finished, I realized that I probably had enough material to turn it into a children’s book, but how? It has been–– and continues to be––a learning experience. Discussion groups on LinkedIn have been a help, but there are times when I tune them out because I have no idea what they are discussing! My message to myself at such times is, “Calm down, you’ll learn it as needed!”
Early last year, I sent a few manuscripts to a handful of agents and was quickly rejected due to an overwhelming abundance…

It was early spring; birds were singing – bees were humming. There was a certain dame in my class who had caught my attention; her eyes were a mysterious hazy blue ……. a young lady whose name shall remain anonymous. Boy ………… what a dame. There were others ……… but not like this one ……….. this one, she had class.
Most days at recess, I didn’t play games like the other rats in my school …….. there were more pressing issues …… there was investigative work to be done ……. sleuthing into the whys and whereabouts of my secret interest …..
One recess, I was in the middle of a stake out, laying low behind a wooden walking beam so as not to draw attention. The subject was playing on the monkey bars …….. she was…

This is so beautiful. I can almost see the smile on God’s face.
John 15: 9-12
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Here, in these verses, is the the key to a joy that is full– the words that Jesus has spoken to us, and His joy within us.
God’s love for His Son, Jesus, was immeasurable, as is Jesus’s love for us.
How do we continue in that kind of enormous love? How do we keep the commandments of God, when He is so…

Important information worth repeating. Originally posted on warriorwriters.wordpress.com in Nov. 2014.
I’m still delusional that I might finish NaNoWriMo. I can write 16,000 more words in five days, right? Sigh. I’ve been away from the blog because I’m in the trenches with the fellow Nanos. Also I really needed to take a bit of a break. To help me with my pseudo-sabbatical? The AMAZING Social Media Maven Marcy Kennedy is here to help you learn how to use Twitter effectively.
Using Twitter effectively is important. Twitter is a tool, but we can look like a tool or act like a tool if we rush in not knowing what we are DOING.
Great news is I have done all the dumb stuff so you don’t have to. Marcy might have, but I can’t speak for her (and she is kind of a Hermione) so she probably was smart enough to learn from MY dumb stuff…..
