Encouraging the Writer Within by Marianne Evans

Marianne Evans
Spring is inching closer and closer - and with it comes the promise of warmer, sunny weather, and longer days. I can't wait! It's time for a solid dose of encouragement and inspiration. 

Hope you enjoy these slices of wisdom and inspiration - and I hope you find your way not just to the bloom of flowers and earthy soil, but an energizing of the writing spirit as well!  Enjoy!

Which of these pearls spoke to you? For me, it was 'Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.' Powerful - and so true of what we do when we sit down and begin/continue the process of creating. I'd love to hear your thoughts, and your own inspirations! 

Until next month ... happy writing, and keep blooming!


Benjamin Fisher melds with quiet perfection into the tapestry of the Fisher family. The youngest of the three Fisher men, Ben is gifted with skills that keep machines running, crops efficiently harvested, farm structures sound and secure.

But there’s one person in the small village of Antioch, Indiana who has noticed and adored the man since her youth. Hailey Beth Thomas. Hailey Beth’s sister is marrying Ben’s brother in a spring wedding that promises to be the event of the season. Thrown together as the heady romance of an upcoming marriage takes place, love and revelation come to life.

Unknown to anyone else, Ben wants to answer a call to the mission fields of North America that will lead him far from the life he has always known. Ben longs to serve, but he wants a life with Hailey Beth as well. Hailey Beth can’t leave Antioch, but can’t bear the idea of losing Ben.

Are they meant to be together, or will God’s call pull them apart just as they’ve found a way to one another?
