Happy Anniversary!!!

That's right, today is the first anniversary of the official kick-off of F.A.I.T.H. It's been a wonderful year, growing closer to my FAITH sisters and making new friends. It's also been a great year in our writing lives. Missy sold her first book. Jenn was a double-finalist in the Genesis contest. And the rest of us have grown in our writing, bringing us one step closer to that goal of publication.

Our desire when we started this blog was to share the ups and downs of writing. And while we've done that, we've also share pieces of ourselves. The good and the bad. Hopefully, our readers feel as though they know us a little better. But most of all, I hope everyone knows that each of us has a heart for God, and that we are Following, always, intently, trusting, Him.

In honor of our anniversary, I think it's time for a contest. How 'bout some things that writers and readers alike covet. For starters, how about an Amazon gift card? Now maybe we'll throw in a Starbucks gift card. And let's top it all off with some chocolate. Sound good? Leave a comment and your name will be entered to win. Good luck!

  6. This is a word for todays christian to have faith in everything you do and say. because works without faith is dead and that is in the word. so i am bless to say that one must have faith in what we are doing to bring glory to the lord above.
