Ann VosKamp is a hugely successful Christian writer---but in all honesty--her style does not appeal to me personally.  She has more talent in her little finger than I do in my entire body--but she is a wordy writer---her style if filled with prose ---descriptive flowing prose.  I find my mind wandering before I get to the end of a paragraph.  Different styles appeal to different personalities--THAT my friends is why there are so MANY books!  Her book is a national best seller--it took me weeks to finish it.  I kept getting lost.  One thing we can all agree on---she is spreading The Word---causing us to think upon Jesus---she loves God.

I read her blog---always looking for a prod--a nudge---a nugget of truth which causes me to stop and think.  She pushed my button today---via another writer,
Kristen Welch.  God used Ann to point me to Kristen who pushed me to think.

Here is the link---I challenge you to read it---and perhaps you will be pushed to think--nudged to act--challenged to seek your purpose.


  1. Hi Lulu! Well...I clicked on your link and read the post by Kristen. "What are you going to do about it?" Those are really challenging words. I know that God wants me to bust out of my comfort zone, and I am wrestling with how to do it. And here is this woman who did the same thing, and helped so many. I pray that God will give me the big shove I need to do the same things. Not in Africa, but in my own life.

    Thank you for linking that article. It really is a lot to chew on...

    1. Oh Ceil, I AM CHOKING! It is a mouthful--- Feeling very convicted!

      Blessings this week, My Friend!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
