Each devotional is started with a the discussion, a verse, then closed with a prayer.
The writer prompts at the end gives writers encouragement and food for thought.
An excerpt from Brooke Cox is one I need to remember."As Christian writers, our road to travel isn't an easy one.We often get knocked down by the world and sometimes by other Christians......Finish the race and like you have never run before."
This devotional is recommended for all Christian writers.
A copy of the devotional was given in exchange for an honest review.

A review copy of this book was provided by the publisher via The Inspired Inkpot.
I’m an author, but not necessarily a writer of Christian manuscripts. I’m also not one to successfully stay with devotionals, despite what I wish otherwise. I can honestly relate to this one. I could stick with it. It speaks to specific issues of writers, and with a Christian perspective.
Each piece starts with a related verse and ends with writing prompts. Writing prompts! Who would’ve thought? That’s cool.
It gives insight into challenges that writers face or can face, and makes it personal by giving the author’s own story. They tell us they’ve been there, and it’s okay, and this is what they learned from being in a particular place or predicament. Having someone who understands what we’re going through empathically goes a long, long way in respect to encouraging. A happy ending is always good as far as I’m concerned. But the joy is in the journey and what is learned along the way.
I teared up in a couple of places. Well, maybe more than a couple.
One example: “Fear: One Author’s Perspective” by Heather Gray.
I’ve not had to endure the pain and heartache that she has. I have had my share of emotional stability issues and mental struggles and at one point in time, my worst fears occurred. And from that perspective, I can testify that afterwards, nothing that other people can do or say, or that you think they might do or say, can hurt you with any force, or hold you back from doing something. Fear is viewed from an entirely new perspective. When I read her submission, I grieved for her, and knew how right she was.
And again in: “Writing has a Twin” by Shelley Pierce. You know these writers submitted more than their stories and their learning. They submitted their hearts. They trusted in God. And in “good” and “bad” God was with them. He will be with all of us that believe and ask. And trust.
It’s in devotional format and written from writers to writers, but it is full of worldly, ordinary, everyday understanding and I’d think appeal and encourage anyone, depressed, discouraged, wondering what they should be doing, or just wanting to know they’re not alone, and what they’re feeling is not unusual.
Now, I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. But I would’ve read it anyway and bought copies for my mother and other writing friends.
