    * Create New Things With God

    * Start Seeing Yourself the Way God Sees You

    * Use Your Art and Creativity in New Ways

    The Creator of galaxies, oceans, wildflowers, and stallions made you creative. He gave you an imagination. Eyes to see what has never been. A voice to speak things into existence.

    The reason why is astonishing. It’s not so you’ll get busy doing things for God. But so you’ll pursue the very things you love with God.

    That is true creativity.

    And this is your invitation to experience it as never before.

    Allen Arnold—noted creativity author, coach, and speaker—has helped thousands with his teachings on co-creating with God. This book brings together his central insights on topics such as Imagination, Opposition, Questions, Wonder, and Expectancy. Each page features original quotes or timeless Scripture that, like waves, will wash over you, refresh you, and stir you to greater creativity.

    Your art wants to grow deeper, wilder, truer. It’s just waiting for you to go first. It is a journey best taken one thought at a time. The goal isn’t to get somewhere fast. But to become more fully you along the way.

    Join us for a chat with John Riddle, founder of I Love To Write Day. https://ilovetowriteday.com/

    "My goal for I Love To Write Day is to have people of all ages spend time writing. They can write a poem, a love letter, a greeting card, an essay, a short story, start a novel, finish a novel…the possibilities are endless. But I want people to take the time to put their thoughts down on paper. They will be amazed at the results.

    “Writing can be fun, but also challenging. People need to be challenged, and writing is but one of many creative ways to express yourself. I am very excited because I Love To Write Day activities are already being planned all across the United States.

    “For many people, that will be the beginning of their writing career. I Love To Write Day has the potential to launch the career of the next John Grisham, Mary Higgins Clark, Stephen King or Toni Morrison.”

    Be encouraged with John's latest book: The Flying Nun, A Light Bulb Moment and Me: 40 Years Making Money As A Freelance Writer (Hey, You Can Do It, Too!) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09JB63C5P/

    Join Us for a Conversation with Esther Lovejoy author of An Unnatural Beauty

    In this edition of Christians Speak UP! Ester Lovejoy talks about how holiness is not an endless list of “thou shalt nots.” It’s not how we behave, what we think, or how we react or respond to life and the people around us. 

    A frequent retreat and conference speaker with over thirty years of ministry experience, M. Esther Lovejoy leads us back to the scriptural understanding of holiness. In An Unnatural Beauty, you’ll discover…

    •    Foundational truths from Scripture

    •    The path to a deeper, more intimate relationship with God

    •    Holiness can’t be achieved through our own efforts.

    With relatable stories, Esther challenges us with God’s call to holiness and encourages us with God’s enabling to make this real and practical in our lives.

    Holiness is not a what, but a glorious Who, and He’s inviting you to share in His divine nature.

    Buy An Unnatural Beauty today and begin your journey toward a more intimate relationship with God.

    Book Ester for your next women's event! https://viewfromthesparrowsnest.com/ lovejoy988 (at) aol.com

    Catch our Chat With Tim Holder, Assistant Dean, Walters State Community College

    Timothy Holder has published several books on presidents, their faith, and leadership. His interest in presidents is both a cause and effect of his work as a History professor. Tim's Christianity is the source of his interest in faith as a writing topic. And over the years, he has been a boss, and has been bossed around, hence the interest in leadership.

    He has a Ph. D. and a Masters degree in History from the University of Kentucky. He also received a Masters in Applied Theology from Carson-Newman University, and during his undergraduate studies at Asbury University he majored in both Bible and Education (with a History emphasis for the latter).Tim is former Assistant Dean in the Behavioral and Social Science Division at Walters State Community College.

    Join us on our Christians Speak UP podcast as we discuss Tim's books: Devotions with Presidents, Presidential Stories, Ask the Professors Keys to College Success, and Presidential Character: Geroge Washington-John Qunicy Adams. https://www.amazon.com/Timothy-D-Holder/e/B002BMICP0?

    Join Us for a Conversation with Nancy Head author of Restoring the Shattered

    Join Us for a Conversation with Nancy Head author of Restoring the Shattered

    Nancy E. Head attends the non-denominational First Church of Christ. Nancy is a lifelong resident of Blair County in central Pennsylvania, dwelling for most of her years in Altoona―with a brief interval in Logan Township. She is a graduate of Penn State and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She teaches Advanced Placement English at Great Commission Schools and composition classes at Penn State Altoona. Nancy is a United States Armed Forces Mother and a member of the Blair County Republican Committee and Toastmasters. Nancy worked in both radio and print journalism before becoming a high school and college-level teacher. She blogs about Church and social issues twice weekly, and CBN.com has published several of her devotionals. Her experiences as a single mother raising five young children showed her how poverty alleviation is an issue for the church and an issue requiring a Church in accord.

    Written in an easy-to-understand, conversational style, Restoring the Shattered is an account of Nancy E. Head’s journey through single-motherhood and poverty. The permanent divide between her and her husband led to a shattering of their family as the children settled into separate camps. The story begins when Nancy and her children have little to eat. Through a miraculous intervention, God provides—and leads them along their way. Other interventions and more guidance came from people of different denominations, illustrating Christ’s love through the larger Church. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H2QDPRM/

At a Time Like This We Need More Christians to Speak Up and Out!

Love the fact that this show features both big names and (no?) names—both our neighbor next door and those celebrities we see in films.

Worth a Listen

Informative and encouraging with a wide range of guests.
