Come check it out!

This will be the last week that a regular FMF link-up is hosted here on this site. And yes, I will be moving with you!

Starting next week, head over to to find the newest link-up! 

My prayer is that our new FMF home will become a haven for the Christian writing community to be encouraged and equipped.

In addition to the regular weekly link-up, we’ll be sharing articles, resources, and courses related to the Christian writing life.

I’ll also be offering one-on-one consultations to anyone who is seeking direction, guidance, or advice for their writing journey. I have many more plans in mind and can’t wait to see how God leads our growing community!

By popular request, I’ve also created a brand new FMF Facebook group! Click here for instructions on how to join.

This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is:




When my husband first suggested a dedicated Five Minute Friday site, I brushed off his idea. I didn’t like the thought of change, of all the effort required, of moving.

But then I started to catch a vision for all that Five Minute Friday could become if we had our very own space dedicated to this beautiful community of writers. One of my greatest passions is to encourage and equip Christian writers, and I couldn’t think of a better way at this stage of my life than to expand the offering of FMF beyond the weekly link-up, Twitter party, and Facebook page.

I hope you’ll do more than just visit the new site.

I hope you’ll settle in there like it’s your home away from home.

As we continue to add content and resources, I hope you’ll find help and motivation and inspiration to grow in your identity as a writer, to use your gifts for God’s glory, to push deeper into your calling, and to explore new heights with His help.

I hope you’ll make new friends, meet old ones, and invite more. I hope you’ll stand on the welcome mat with me and herd people in with a cup of hot tea waiting in your hand.

I hope you’ll sit on the front porch for a while and sway back and forth on the creaky porch swing, and just breathe in the fresh air of God’s goodness in your life.

I hope you’ll listen to new voices and learn to find your own.




As excited as I am about the new Five Minute Friday site, when my timer went off, I actually got sentimental realizing that this is the last FMF prompt I’ll write at And yet, I know God has new things in store for this site as well, as we turn the page into a new chapter and refine our focus.

Here’s to new beginnings, friends! (And don’t forget to enter the giveaway!)
