Why? Why? Why?

Why Join a Writer's Group?
In our writing group this week, Pam opened with the main reason for the 1st Writes Writing Group: To encourage each other as writers.
Therefore encourage one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another, just as you are doing.1 Thessalonians 5:11
Our writing group also critiques, learns writing tips, practices with prompts and exercises, blogs, shares devotions, writes testimonies, helps one another be accountable to write and to meet writing goals, prays, and builds friendships. 

Writing is often a solitary task, so interaction with other like-minded writers is very important. We each need to be strengthened by each other.

As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17
What Does It Mean to be a Christian Writer? 
To me, it means to write in a way that is pleasing to God, no matter what you write (Christian or secular). 
Why Write?
Do you feel passionate about writing? If so, it is because God gave you a gift or talent.
Having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to
the grace given us, let us use them... Romans 12: 6
You should write because it pleases God when you use the gift/talent that he gave you. It  also will bring you joy to do something you were meant to do!
Why do you write?  What are your "Why? Why? Why?" questions?


  1. What an inspiring post! I believe in sharing what God has gifted me with, too! I write because it's freeing for me to do so. I feel that I'm letting my "light shine" by sharing my gift through publication.

    Thanks for sharing this spiritual post with us. *hugs*
