Writerly Devotion Time & #IWSG

I'm still in Summer Ketchup mode. Don't know what that is? Go HERE. Like I mentioned back in HERE, I'd be popping in from time to time to help out FPP (fellow pub peeps), writer friends, and to make announcements. And today I have an announcement. (Gosh, I'm beginning to feel like a broken record.)

I'm here today to celebrate a super amazing author friend's new book news & to leave you with a little #IWSG pondering. Note: although Writer's Alley is solely a children's book and author site, I feel this devotional book deserves the spotlight. I mean, doesn't every writer need a little self-reflection and encouragement from time to time?

Meet Lynda R. Young, one of the nicest and kindest writers I know. It's such a pleasure to call her friend. She's a Christian first, writes devotionals, articles, and speculative short stories. In her spare time she is also an editor, game developer, artist, and dabbles in photography and all things creative. She lives in Australia with her sweetheart of a husband.

Cling to God: A Daily Devotional
by Lynda R. Young

Release date: October 18, 2016
Publisher: Freedom Fox Press

Cling to God in the chaos of life…

Cling to God is a book of devotionals for every day of the year. The aim is to encourage Christians in their faith, to help them think about their beliefs and learn more about God. The devotions are short and inspirational so that people with busy lifestyles will still be able to spend time with the Lord each day. It will appeal to a wide Christian audience, to those new in their faith as well as those matured beyond milk and honey.

I'm truly excited for this book! I'm a believer in taking a few moments at the start of each morning to breath and ponder my upcoming day. This leads me to this month's #IWSG pondering: The world is such a busy place today and we all lead such amazingly cramped lives. Everywhere we turn some stimulation or responsibility is vying for our attention. 

Think about what you do to keep it all straight and how you keep yourself balanced. Do you do both? One or the other? And despite your success, how does this help and how can you improve?

 photo Sheri2.pngThe purpose of the IWSG is to share and encourage, posting on the first Wednesday of each month. You'll find writer doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Support and a common understanding spread throughout the group as many fellow writers can relate. Feel free to JOIN in anytime.
