The Treasured Voice by Angela Breidenbach

Angela Breidenbach is a friend, fellow writer, and a life coach. She also currently serves as Mrs. Montana International 2009. This Fortifying Friday, sit back and enjoy what she has to share with you.

The Treasured Voice

What kind of a personality do you have?
What is your primary love language?
What area of the country are you from?
How were you raised?
Who raised you?
What kind of education do you have?
What faith choices have you made?
Are you a night owl, early bird, or somewhere in between?
What hardships, addictions, hurts have you lived through?

We see the world and our place in it through the answers to questions like these. These filters determine understanding, response, and decisions.

There are millions of things that have gone into the people we are today. Even if someone were to mirror our life exactly, genetics come into play. How we see the world is a unique blend of nuances impossible to recreate.

As a writer, we have the opportunity to use the voice God gave us on the written page to create an intimate bond with readers. Intimacy created because of the private invitation to leap off the page and enter their mind. One-on-one communication under the surface.

Each experience we've lived through becomes a gem of wisdom to fill our special treasure chest. Rather than bury treasure, as Christians, we share it. Only to discover our treasure multiplies in Christ exponentially.

Gems are cut into various sizes and shapes. Some for jewelry, some for museum display, and even some for the practical use of sandblasting. Each rock has its own varying design and purpose.

It's the same with us. The Lord sees our full value and purchases us with his son. He sees the potential and the right cut for our purpose, the purpose he designed for us. We each have multi-faceted nuances that make who we are, what we do in this life, and how we voice it to the world remarkable.

We're on a treasure hunt. The intent is to uncover the gems of wisdom God has given us to enrich the lives of others.

May your treasure sparkle!

  1. Thanks,Angie, for reminding us that we're all special with something unique to share.

    It comes down to being vulnerable. For a writer that means opening up and allowing those experiences and feelings to flow onto the page in a way that a reader can connect with them.

    Time to go on a treasure hunt!


  2. I'm honored to be here with you today. Thank you for hosting me :-)
