And walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Ephesians 5:2

In commemoration of Memorial Day, I believe it’s fitting that we pause and reflect on the theme of sacrifice. The members of our armed forces constantly give of themselves, sacrificing time with loved ones and indeed their very lives to protect the United States of America.

To them, I say “thank you.”

But let us never forget the greatest Warrior of all, whose immortal sacrifice purchased freedom for the entire human race. Blessed be His Name.

To Jesus, I say “thank you,” for it was His sacrifice that made all the difference in my life.

I pray that we will live as this verse instructs us. Loving each day. Giving each day. Sacrificing each day so that someone else can be made free.

For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Matthew 12:37

As an author, I’m well aware of the power that words contain. Despots and dictators have lost their thrones before a few spots of ink on paper. God’s eternal thoughts were breathed into written form, illuminating the way to salvation.

As I fly from one end of the country to the other, and begin my author tour of the Lancaster/Philadelphia, Pennsylvania regions, I feel more constrained than ever to use my words effectively in the service of my God and for the benefit of my fellow man.

Our words can change mindsets, envision the future and immortalize the past. Our words will either empower or enslave; breathe life or destroy it. And in the end, it will be our words that either justify or judge us.

Let us purpose to use them wisely.

In just under 3 weeks, I’m flying out to join other authors, publishers and writing professionals at the Colorado Christian Writers Conference where I’ll again teach two workshops. 
The only thing better than a Christian Writer’s Conference is a writer’s conference in the Rockies!

Post conference, I’m looking forward to some much needed R&R in the West Coast. Who knows? Maybe I’ll start my next novel at an altitude of 14,000 feet! I believe in having “high expectations” for my work. 🙂

Excuse my silence over the next few weeks as I have author critiques to complete and presentations to prep.

Join me in praying for a successful event.

This weekend, I was privileged to teach two workshops at the Lancaster Christian Writer’s Super Saturday event. With great food, fellowship (did I mention awesome Colombian coffee?), it was a day to remember.

First, a big shout-out to Jeanette Windle, LCW President, who did a terrific job hosting the event.

Second, it was a real thrill to interact with Brian and Ronie Kendig, bestselling author of multiple “rapid-fire fiction” novels. I left inspired to draft the first book in my upcoming political thriller series set in the Middle East. Stay tuned…

Finally, I heard a lot of positive feedback from my workshop attendees. Comments like, ” JP, thank YOU for sharing great info about marketing! ” and “You’re teaching things that I need to know,” really made me feel that my time was well spent.

Several attendees were gracious enough to send me pictures of the event. Thanks all!
