When God Calls You to Deeper Waters

Hi Friends,

God is up to something. I'm not sure what yet, but I sense Him moving. Most likely, He's calling me to deeper waters because that's what we both love best - diving deeper, deeper, deeper with Him.…

The Pineapple Chutney Following: A Delicious Book Club Idea

When my novel, Rain Song, made its debut, I was eager to promote it with the typical book signings at local stores. I arranged three events and enjoyed each one; people came and bought books. However, I wanted more, something unique, something to stand out. As one friend said, with a wry smile, "You want a following." I grimaced; that sounded lofty.

Rain Song is set in Mount Olive, NC and has quirky southern relatives who believe in tradition and…

How to Use the Network- a Daily Digest to Help. 6-2-2010

My friend, Angie Breidenbach made a good suggestion yesterday and I want to try to implement it. She said:

"You know what would be cool? One little mini lesson a day on how to best use this group. But that would be a lot of work for you, Fred." (To quote Maynard G Krebs -"Work!!!")

Actually I am getting questions from people everyday who join and it occurs to me that many…

Why I LIke Freshwater Pearls

Some of you may have noticed that next to my name, Shawna K. Williams, I have the brand, Author of Grace-Inspired Fiction. My reason for choosing this was that I want to write stories that portray God's Grace in the lives of imperfect people. This is important to me!

I'm doing a lot of giveaways during the blog tour for "No Other". I have details for the…

Moved to Kentucky

On May 20 we finally arrived at our new home in Kentucky. We love it here. I hope to connect with a writers' group soon. I live fairly close to author Kathy Cretsinger, and I understand Sandra Robbins is close by, too. We are still dealing with all the "just moved" details, but my office is mostly set up (haven't got all my research books out yet) and I'm back in business. I received several large print copies of my NH Heartsong "A New Joy." You can read about this book on my website's…

The Language of the Heart

I remember when I told my boyfriend I felt vulnerable in our relationship. Actually, I wrote the word in a note. He told me I'd spelled vulnerable incorrectly. How was I to know it had a "l" after the "u'? When I said the word, I never acknowledged that sound.

Seems as a missionary kid growing up with strange English being spoken and mixed with my own mother's made-up words and Southern phrases, I often was not sounding like a native speaker. To add to…

Why You Should Pray Like a Two-Year-Old

I can get kind of shallow in my prayers. But, a few years ago my daughter, Joelle, taught me how to pray with more depth and meaning. And she did it when she was two.

Now, it’s not that I don’t know how to pray. I’ve been a praying Christian for years. I’ve read all the books, I’ve studied all the greats - Augustine, Brother Lawrence, and a dozen others. I’ve given talks and written seminary papers. I’ve fasted, and prayerwalked, and read the Lord’s Prayer in Greek. I’ve even written… Continue

Attitudes or Gratitudes — It’s Your Choice!

The dictionary describes attitude in this way, “a manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing.” When a teacher or coach says, “He’s got an attitude,” it is not a positive remark. No matter how you cut it “having an attitude” is not a good thing.

“Attituders” are complainers. They yell and moan about what is wrong and don’t get anything done. Attituders seem to revel in making everyone meserible. And… Continue
