My name is Bonnie Derksen. I have been a FW member since the end of April when the Lord led me to this site. Like many others, I instantly felt at home and have been very excited about the opportunities that are available. :wink:

Earlier this year, I took an on-line writing devotionals course. It was a very safe place to begin the process of allowing people, other than my family, a view of my heart, via paper. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it ended poorly causing me to "look elsewhere"... :)

I have had a lot of fun entering the Writing Challenges and have been so blessed by the comments and encouragement of others. At this point in my life, with the time restraints that seem to be my temporary lot, the weekly writing challenges are a perfect fit. I want to be open to the Lord's purposes, however they unfold, AND I love this FW place!! so becoming a 500 member and thereby committing myself to this ministry made great sense :!:

It is with great excitement and anticipation that I press on!

Bonnie, it's great to have you in the 500. That's exactly the sort of thing we love to hear--someone found a "home" at FaithWriters, has been encouraged, and wants to give something back. May you continue to be blessed in return.

Love, Deb

Just joined the 500. I did it because I believe in the ministry of faithwriters. I have already gained exposure I wouldn't have otherwise had, and am now being published online. Reading what others have written has also been a blessing to me.

Ok - I have been wanting to do this for a LOOOOOOOONG time - and now I can.........I'M A 500 MEMBER!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I think you folks know how much I love this place, and how ADDICTED I am to it!! Unfortunately, I am a tightwad and was VERY concerned about the financial aspect - so much so, in fact, that I didn't even TALK TO my husband about whether it was OK (we are currently living off his social security disability payments). Then, God got me to really think about it. We are surviving OK - and we do pick up "little extras" on occasion. So why not ask what he thinks?
Well, last night, I did - and he said, if I think it will help me and I can use it, go ahead. Soooo - here I am!!!!!!

Just joined the 500. I'm so excited. It was such a blessing to find faithwriters. I've been here around six months and am addicted to the challenge! Maybe no one else can tell, but I can already tell a difference in my work and the way I think about writing. I roam the boards, but usually stay very quiet and have grown to love so many people here! I'm looking forward to being here for a long time and getting to know you all even more!

Woohoo Tab!!! Welcome to the 500. I'm so happy you did that--and for all the right reasons again. You've got the heart for FaithWriters and you can see the value of it goes beyond money.

By the way, this is the first time I've seen your piccy. You're all adorable.

I'm in!! I received such encouragement and praise, not only here but from friends and family, on my writing that I'm thinking maybe God WILL use it. :) I sent my "missionary" draft to my writing daughter today for her opinion, and she replied "Wow! I didn't know you were such an awesome writer!" That was wonderful praise from her.

I've loved it here from my first day, I love the challenges and the boards and, well, just everything about FW. I have been blessed tremendously. Thanks everyone for making me feel so welcomed.

All for HIM!
Love
