Hey Write Brilliant Friends!
Margaret, here. Meet my friend, Heather Zempel. Heather is an author and discipleship pastor at National Community Church in Washington, DC.
I asked Heather to pop over and answer an important question when it comes to writing: How do you make your writing timeless?
Her insights are sooo helpful. You’re going to want to take notes.
P.S. The motto of their church is one I need over my whole life. Yes, please.
Grab a copy of Heather’s book Community is Messy, here.
Meet our friend, Laura. Laura is a worship leader, pastor, mom, and author. Before being introduced to Write Brilliant, Laura had one self-published study, but still didn’t consider herself a writer.
Sound familiar? Laura isn’t alone. So many of you wrestle with calling yourself a writer. But that’s exactly what you are.
Now, Laura has published two Bible studies with Moody Publishers and continues to transform lives through her story.
We asked Laura to pop over and share some of her advice for those who struggle to call themselves writers. Read More
Hi Write Brilliant friends,
I want to introduce you to my friend, Heather Zempel. Heather is an author and discipleship pastor at National Community Church in Washington DC. Heather has a lot of gifts– one of which I want you to glean from today. In this video, I ask Heather her tips on how to write a study on an entire book of the Bible–while sticking to a theme.
Take 5 minutes to watch this interview. Your writing (and study) will be better for it.
P.S. Even if you don’t write Bible studies, Heather’s tips will translate into what you do, too. Promise.
Check out Heather’s study, Amazed and Confused, here.
