What inspires you to write poetry? devotionals? What advice or tips would you give to those who write christian inspiration or non -fiction?
I’m inspired to help encourage others because I know it’s what God has called me to do. Anyone can tell you how bad things are, but it’s my calling to tell you that God is still able!!
My advice to those who write is to just keep writing. Even when you’re going through dark periods in life, keep writing and if you don’t encourage anyone, at least you’ve encouraged yourself and will continue to develop your spiritual muscles.
About the Book
With Style & Amazing Grace
Do not let your adornment be merely outward arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3:3-4 (New King James Version) Embrace a more balanced lifestyle. One with style, grace, rest and purpose. It’s the kind of life that God blesses, and in turn, you’re able to bless others.
Aleysha R. Proctor‘s Jazz, Java and Jesus was a joy to read. That devotional, like its name, has a fresh style but is full of the Word and divine wisdom without being preachy or super-analytical. I paraphrased portions of her daily devotionals on my facebook page. Aleysha believes that God has given her a mandate to encourage people in all aspects of their lives. Therefore I could not wait to read another one of her devotionals. In With Style & Amazing Grace she tells us how to adorn the “inner you “with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit based on 1Peter 3:3-4. This devotional uniquely shows us how to embrace a lifestyle of not just outer beauty ,but an inner beauty that radiates style, grace, rest and purpose that will shine forth to bless others.
