Getting Ready for ACFW Conference
I leave tomorrow for the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. I’ve got my one sheets, my business cards, my pens, and my clothes packed. I’ve got my pitch–long version and elevator version, too. I’ve got singles for tips and snacks for our room.
I’ve got a positive attitude because many people are praying for me. Whenever panicky butterflies flap too hard, I douse them with a prayer of my own.
One of the most important items in my backpack is my stack of scripture cards. I have about ten verses I’ve copied on 3/5 cards. I flip through them for an extra dose of courage.
The one on top is Deuteronomy 31:8, “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Great advice from the Original Author, the Creator, the Sustainer.
