AUGUST is a time to WRITE, not to meet and talk about writing.

Isaiah 30:8 (TPT) - God told me to write down in a book words meant for the coming generation as an eternal witness. Meditate on this Scripture and let it quicken your spirit and motivate you.
 
The challenge in August is to put your pen or your keyboard to good use so you'll have something to share at our upcoming meetings. We're not asking much: just one to four double-spaced pages. If you haven't written in a while (or ever), consider August your jump-start month. Record the words the Lord is entrusting to you, words only you can write that will inspire, uplift, clarify, entertain, inform, or help readers now and in the years to come.
