Opportunity Knocks on Unexpected Doors
Not For Sale
I knew that once the knife sliced through my throat life would never be the same again. Now, the beeps of the heart monitor, the drone of the television on the other side of the curtain and the nurse testing the sensation in my toes, all pressed reality into the lingering fog of anesthesia. My lack of ability to speak confirmed what I saw and heard: Disk replacement surgery was the beginning of a long journey for me.
In the weeks and months to follow I would count the time in minutes and hours as the days of recuperation dragged on. Isolation and immobilization caused me to rethink who I was and to ponder what God had in store for me on this new passage. It was while in this rumpled condition that a dear friend told me about

was simple and easy. Before I knew it I was on my way. I hadn’t envisioned myself as a writer beyond sharing my testimony, but as I began to explore the site, my interest was expanded to include other possibilities. The tools I found on Faithwriters made the impossible seem achievable.
I posted an article about a homeless woman and was very encouraged when they chose to highlight the article on the front page of the website. That pat on the back spurred me on to try my pen at my first entry into the

. Entries can be anything from poetry, to devotions, non-fiction to fiction. After praying I decided to write a first person account of my experiences with neck surgery and what God had been teaching me through it.
Doubt turned to astonishment when that entry was second in my level and placed in Editor’s Choice for all levels. The Facebook widget on the page indicated that many people had shared the article with others. That was over a year ago. The article has been viewed, reprinted and shared hundreds of times through FaithWriters and I recently had a request from a blogger who asked to highlight it on her blog. The amazing multiplication of ministry that happens on FaithWriters is matched by no other writing forum on the internet. Publishers and Christian ministries from all over the world come to FaithWriters to
find high quality Christian writing
A couple of months after my winning entry, I decided to try my hand at fiction. I was never very good at telling a story, as my kids will attest, but I thought that perhaps
a story would be different. From the moment I began to write my first short story... I was hooked. The freedom of expressing myself, and more importantly, communicating
the love of Jesus
to my readers using fiction took me on writing adventures I never imagined.
Now, my short stories are being published in FaithWriters anthologies and it has opened wide the door of inspiration and opportunity. I urge you…let your fingers run, not walk, to FaithWriters today and find the whole new world that awaits you.
Surgery? No big deal.
