You have a passion to write words that will touch hearts and maybe even change lives. That passion comes from the Lord. He has called you to write because He knows there are people who will need to read what He has put on your heart to write.
Since you have such a hope, you can be BOLD in honing your writing craft, connecting with other writers, networking with industry professionals, and taking the next step on whatever journey God has in mind for you. And at Mount Hermon, you can do all that in a beautiful retreat setting nestled among the California redwoods.
