Five Minute Friday book

(Yes, I’m using ALL CAPS because it’s just SO EXCITING!!)

Can you even believe it?

Help us spread the word!

[Tweet “The Five Minute Friday BOOK is NOW AVAILABLE!”]


This collection is so much more than just a book.

In a word, it’s a testimony.

It’s a testimony of community.

It’s the story and fruit of more than a hundred writers gathering together, one word at a time.

It’s about throwing caution to the wind and writing your heart out.

It’s about being brave.

Page after page gives testimony to the power of the written word–raw and unedited, hopeful and true.

Some of my (many) favorite quotes from the book:

“You are not writing alone. You are gathered in a crowd of witnesses beholding ink-stained truth.” ~@AliaJoyH, #FMFbook

“We wrote beauty like fireworks across the dark sky of the Internet. We wrote a love story.” ~@lisajobaker, #FMFbook”

“I will dare to bring beauty to a world of gray.” ~@MelanieGillgris, #FMFbook

“We threw caution to the wind and we wrote our guts out.” ~@lisajobaker, #FMFbook


Huge props to the dear and wonderful Susan Shipe, who labored for countless hours to compile and format this book.

Without Susan, this book would not have happened! She carried this project from its idea stage all the way to publication. Thank you, Susan! You are a gift!

All profits from the book will be divided equally between two ministries in South Africa: The Vine School in Cape Town, and The Ten Dollar Tribe!
