A Word to Change the World

Posted on

At the September Wordsowers meeting speaker/author Karen Watson enthralled us with her powerful presentation, “The Value of Your Testimony.”

In it she asked, “If you could change the world with one WORD, what would it be?

So at the risk of sounding unprofessional, today we’re laying it on the line.

Yes, our goal here at Wordsowers Christian Writers Group is to help authors grow.

But the heart of our mission is sharing the Lord’s goodness, power, and love.

Our writers do that in a variety of ways. Some are direct, like our devotional writers. Others are subtle.

Bottom line: Here at Wordsowers we strive to use our writing gifts for the Lord’s purposes.

Today’s post was originally slated to introduce the 1/2 price special we’ll run for our Wordsowers April 2016 conference.

Instead, we’d like to point to another writers group with the same heart for the Lord, The Heart of America Christian Writers Network–HACWN.

And rather than promoting our conference, we’re promoting theirs.

The HACWN conference runs October 22-24th, 2015. And they’re offering $100 off the registration.

Some of our writers attend the HACWN conference yearly.

Last year best-selling Cecil Murphey sponsored me to attend for the first time.

The conference amazed me.
They presented a treasure trove of information on writing, publishing, platform building, and a myriad of related topics.

In the midst of professionalism, camaraderie flowed.

I felt the same underlying purpose from every publisher, editor, author, and agent I spoke with.

They all had a greater goal than simply promoting themselves or their publications.
They wanted to share the Lord’s love with a hungry, hurting world.

Back to Karen Watson’s question, “If you could change the world with one WORD, what would it be?

Let’s meet at the HACWN conference and learn how to share that WORD with the world.
