General chat, updates and discussion about being a part of the FaithWriters Platinum (500)
I spent hundreds of dollars on a 'creative writing' hobby course, the reason being simply to provide myself with the accountability of completing regular writing assignments and a distant tutor to give feedback. That really hurt the bank balance! Honestly, the accountability and feedback I've received at FaithWriters have already far outweighed that of the correspondence course I did. To contribute a little to the maintenance of this site and therefore this community of FaithWriters is the least I can do. And besides, it is such a small regular deduction from my bank account that it doesn't hurt anyway.
I posted the following just prior to reading your note on testimonies for the 500. If you still need some, use what you want of mine if it fits your criteria.
Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I joined the 500. I made this decision after spending about five weeks perusing the forums, writing for the weekly challenge, and reading so many incredible entries in the weekly challenge. When one considers the fact that a frightening percentage of the internet is given over to trash, it really is important to support a site that is used to the Glory of God! Thank you for this opportunity and the encouragement to write, write, write! :0)
Man tries to whittle away with words, wounds that have no ears; when the only salve is the passage of time and the healing balm of tears.
Matthew 4:19 And He said unto them, "Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men."
Steady, thanks for that encouragement.
And Pup, your new piccy is sooo cute. (poor little fellow--wonder what he did?)
FW's and its members have truly been a blessing in my life, and without a doubt, will do the same for others that find this jewel in cyberspace. A passion for writing burst into my life because of this wonderful place. So by gladly becoming a 500 member I'm helping to hold on to the good thing that I've found and ensuring that it is around for others to find in the future.

"Nothing torments the mind of a writer more than silence." ~ Me
FaithWriters goes far beyond being a great writing site for Christians--it is a community of dedicated, passionate, and loyal members, who reach out and support one another, whether old or new. My skills have improved, and my writing has taken on a deeper meaning in the short time I've been here. I joined the 500 Club, because I wanted to give back to show my appreciation. It is my hope and prayer that FaithWriters will exceed Scott's vision and bring blessings to many more.
Unfortunately, I am not a 500 member. Although I think that it is well worth it and provided at a reasonable cost, I am unable to afford it at this time. We often live on less than $90 a week in the winter months. However, I have found that this is a wonderful place to visit when I am feeling frustrated, depressed or just need to connect to others that share my faith.
Also, as a minister, there are times that I can come here and as I am drifting through the stories I can almost hear the Lord whispering in my ear, urging me to look at a particular submition. It has happened that I have found the theme to some of my services here when they are most needed.
A wonderful service that I will take full advantage of when I am able.
If a person shows you who they are, Believe Them!
Who cares what they call you, it's what you answer to that counts.
Inspirations, you've blessed and encouraged me today. Thanks so much. I really hope that FaithWriters will continue to bless you.
Now that's the sort of testimony I love to hear!
