Cooking With the NewAir Magic Chef Air Fryer

Everyone knows I love to travel and host writers retreats. When I am in a new location, I enjoy spending most of my time sightseeing or experiencing thrilling excursions. I love getting the most out of my vacations and I don't always have the patience for long wait times at restaurants or cooking a full-course meal at my AirBnb. I am also striving towards living a healthier lifestyle and prefer to stay away from fast-food restaurants if at all possible. That is why I will likely bring my Magic Cher Air Fryer with me on upcoming road trips. After trying the NewAir Air Fryer, I am excited about the future of cooking. I am a mommy and I really appreciate that the air fryer was…

5 Reasons Why Writers Need Community!

One of the most common things I hear writers express when I ask them what’s holding them back from reaching their goals, is a lack of community. There are so many talented writers, but it can get discouraging when you feel alone throughout the process. There is something special about writers that come together to support one another and help each other grow and reach their goals. This is why I started our online community at writevip.com. I saw the need for writers to have a support system while being held accountable for their writing projects. We have even set up different groups in represented states and countries so that our writers can meet face to face! In this blog…

Dear Writer, Give Yourself Time to Heal

As writers, when setting goals and deadlines for our projects, it's important that we are sensitive to God's timing. You may be wondering why you're so frustrated or you seem to come against a wall every time you sit down to write. Could it just be that you have the right message, but it's just the wrong time? Could it possibly be that your story needs a little more developing or maybe it's still being written within the pages of your reality? Or if your story is one of trauma and abuse, have you given yourself an adequate amount of time to heal? I don't think we understand the power of language. Through writing, we have the ability to transfer…

5 Tips to Keep Perfectionism from Hindering the Writing Process!

Are you a perfectionist? Does is seem like every time you take two steps forward with your writing you simultaneously take ten steps back? Many writers already struggle with prioritizing and finding time to dedicate to the writing process. Then, when they finally overcome that hurdle and actually find time to write, the process is hindered by limitations that the writer places upon him or herself. Rather than allowing the inspiration to flow freely... they spend every moment picking apart each and every sentence, critiquing their word choice, second guessing their ideas, and overly revising their first draft before it is even complete. Here's the thing though... your first draft has no other job but to exist. It does not…

How to be a Powerful Writer for God’s Glory!

As writers we should understand the power of our words. I find it disheartening how many times we use our gift with words as a weapon rather than a tool. The words we speak and write have the power to give life, create, and inspire but we often use our words to tear ourselves down, rather than to build ourselves up. Dear writer, stop being your biggest critic.  The words we speak over ourselves during the writing process can place a roadblock on our progress. Do you find yourself struggling with writers block? What have you been speaking through you heart, mind, and mouth? As a writing coach, I have come across many writers who battle fear, anxiety, and low self-esteem.…
