I love working on full-length novels because they allow me to weave complicated story lines with fully developed characters. But, there are also times when ideas come for articles or devotions. These shorter pieces stimulate my creativity while providing another outlet for expression and growth as a writer.
My Own Verse and Story is Included!
The One Year Life Verse Devotional, the creation of Jay Payleitner, contains short stories of well-known authors and speakers, athletes and entertainers … and ordinary people, like me. Each tells how a specific Bible verse has played an important role in the writer’s life. Published by Tyndale House.
