God Has Entrusted You With a Message!

What’s burning in your heart? What’s the story you can’t help but put on a page? If God has entrusted you with a message, it may be time to release it! Authoring a book is a powerful way to communicate the Lord’s heart to others, all while fulfilling your God-given purpose to reflect His creativity and share His love with the world.

Writing a book doesn’t have to be complicated or overwhelming. If He’s given you a message, the Lord will also equip you with the tools you need to bring it to life. But keep in mind, planning, writing, editing, and marketing your book does require some strategy.

As you partner with God in wisdom throughout the process, you’ll also grow your platform and the power of your message.

In James Goll’s new, 16-session e-course, you’ll learn about the book-writing process from start to finish – from the seed of inspiration to holding your hard-won book in your hands and sharing it with the world. You’ll gain practical tools for choosing a subject, identifying your audience, finding your voice, and pinpointing strategies that’ll help you bring your book to fruition, whether you’re working on a nonfiction book, memoir, or devotional. You’ll also learn industry tips for effectively titling, marketing, and publishing your book.

Most importantly, along the way, you’ll also be encouraged in your identity as a writer and empowered to walk through your book-writing journey with the discipline, wisdom, and creativity that bring Heaven to earth.
