Why I'm Attending the FaithWriters Conference (and why you should, too!)


The FaithWriters U.S. conference is only two months away! This will be the 3rd conference held in the U.S. (there is also a "Down Under" conference) and it promises to be better than ever (and not just because I'm one of the workshop teachers this year).

I joined FaithWriters six years ago and most of you probably know that I credit this site for re-jumpstarting my writing career. I attribute much of where I am today (and most of the income I earn) solely to FaithWriters.com. Well, of course God is the one who orders my steps, but He used FaithWriters to bring me to this point.

I attended the first two FaithWriters conferences (2007 and 2009) and both times came away so abundantly blessed. The teaching, the fellowship, and the overall atmosphere of Christian love was almost overwhelming - in a good way! To meet the people I've gotten to know online through the Writing Challenge and on the message boards was surreal. Some of my very best friends in the world are FaithWriters members.

So...all this to say I truly hope you'll prayerfully consider attending the FaithWriters conference this year. If you do, be prepared to be mentally and spiritually motivated, refreshed and renewed. Oh - and also be prepared to have the stuffing squeezed out of you. Lots of huggers in this group!

Hi Lynda,
It's great to meet you here -- thanks for visiting Graceful this week. I've heard a bit about FaithWriters before -- I will have to look into it more now that you have spoken so highly of it. Attending the conference won't work for me this year...but maybe sometime in the future!

Dorothy, the details of the Aussie conference are coming soon (the date's been set. See conference page for that).

Graceful - hope to see you there one day!
