    136: Come Sit a Spell with Marilyn Jansen

    My guest today is Marilyn Jansen. Marilyn and I met when my first book was traditionally published, and she was operating in the role of an editorial director. Years later, we ran into one another again, but this time she was not only still working in publishing, she had her first opportunity to be an author. In this interview, we announce the beautiful publication of her second book, Come Sit a Spell. This book is a  beautiful collection of home recipes and the stories behind them. Listen to the insider scoop of a publisher and author in this episode of Keep Writing.

    132: Give Yourself Margin When You Need It

    Show Notes:

    Today's episode is a peek inside a coaching call from my exclusive coaching membership, Anointed Writers. If you've been wondering if God is mad at you for not writing the book he's placed on your heart, it may be because you've forgotten to give yourself margin for the real life that he's given you to live.

    Show Takeaways:



    * Learn what to do if you’ve been putting off writing the book that God has called you to write.

    * Get encouragement if you worry that it’s too late to write your book.

    * Listen in to hear why it is so important to give yourself margin throughout your writing process.

Practical, deep and so encouraging!

Don’t miss out on this podcast if you feel like God has called you to do something for His Kingdom. Even if it’s not writing-related, this podcast will be what you need to recognize what’s holding you back and then propel you forward. You will love it!!

Thank you, Nika!!!

Wow! It's amazing how God used your words to encourage, challenge, and lift me up! God's timing for me to hear your words was perfect... just what I needed and when I needed it! Thank you for your faithfulness in listening to God and sharing the good things He's giving you. Nothing and nobody can keep God from accomplishing His plans in my life... and His plans for me are good! Thank you and God bless you!
