Ever since I can remember I have had a passion for writing. I have learned with time, and trial and error a certain style of writing. My style of writing was to be for the Lord above. Anything less would be worthless, and in the end fail me and my father in heaven. When I decided to start a blog, I wracked my brain trying to make a decision on a topic. Sure, there are alot of interests I have, a lot of things that I could blog about, but then it hit me, everybody needs inspiration, including myself. So what better way to start my writing, and hopefully a future career in writing, than to write for God! After all, he is the one that gave me this great passion, and if he gave me this passion then there must be only one reason he did, and that reason must be to be his hands and feet to give other people what I feel from him. You see a blessing is not meant to be kept to yourself, it is meant to share. All of my inspirations come from biblical passage, which I will always post a link to the bible passage that gave me my inspiration. My desire is that you too will feel God’s love for you just the way I do. I so look forward to seeing you on here and hearing your own inspirational thoughts. God Bless
Hi Heather! I think it’s great that you write inspirational blogs! In this day and age when so many people seem to struggle to find purpose and meaning in their lives, inspirational blogs can be really helpful.

For people to be truly inspired, they need to look at the blessings in their lives. Sometimes those can be the smallest of things, such as taking the time to watch a sunset. Other times, those blessings can be obvious, such as watching a loved one recover from an illness. Blessings then turn into miracles!
God has given us the desire and talent to write, and, according to the Bible, we are not supposed to hide our talents. Every person is gifted in one way or another, and if God has given you this gift, use it for His glory!
Although I haven’t been blogging like I should, I do enjoy it and, like you, I like to add a Bible verse in mine.
1 Peter 4:10 KJV:
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
Hi Callie and Heather,
I have to tell you that this mornings coffee is half Maxwell regular roast and half Starbuck’s Mocha Java in which I used too much non-dairy creamer and sweetener so it taste like the “Cowboy Coffee” Grandma used to give me when she was perturbed with Ma, it was great then and this morning.
My inspiration to write comes from my desire to help, and I pray for help in writing a good piece. One of the largest projects I ever took on was my book and website.
There was plenty of praying for guidance during this process. I was not in my environment nor class as I interviewed and corresponded with the 400+ contacts I made during the composition of the book. Functioning out of my comfort zone forced me to research and apply the knowledge, and at times the experience gained from the application was the treasure hiding for me to find. My stereotypes of evangelicals, missionaries and evangelizing missionaries changed and matured and my perspective of the villains faced by these folks were clarified. I learned intolerance was far deadlier than any one selfish individual and all could be found among the rich and poor alike.
Writing and helping brings their own rewards to us so I thank you for inspiring me today.
