Devotional: A Personal Writing Mission Statement

I am currently attending the East Texas Christian Writer’s Conference at East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, Texas. Yesterday at the conference we received a two-part challenge. First, “as Christian writers” write a “personal writing mission statement”. Second, share it with someone to get their response. Well, I always do my homework on time. I’m sharing what I wrote with you …

My personal writing mission statement:

• sharing Jesus Christ and his teachings with an emphasis on the application of His lessons to everyday life,
• encouraging the development of poets and writers, and
• promoting appreciation of the liberal arts.
