Carrie Schmidt (Reading is My SuperPower)
As the Ink Flows isn’t just for writers – though that’s certainly its audience. All I write is a blog (lol) and I have been blessed by these devotions all the same.

The five co-authors have written a total of ninety devotions that span six different sections, covering spiritual insights into the writing craft itself as well as into the writer. And above all, each reading, prayer, and exercise points back to THE Author, the One who started our faith and the One who will carry it to completion. A B

A must-have for Christian writers, As the Ink Flows inspires readers to simultaneously grow in their craft and spiritual walk. Glenda Dekkema, Melony Teague, Carol Ford, Claudia Loopstra, and Marguerite Cummings penned 90 devotions that convey solid and practical truths and advice.

Each entry starts with a Bible verse, followed by a brief and relevant devotion, and concludes with a prayer. The authors make the experience interactive by providing readers with the opportunity to reflect on the less

As the Ink Flows is a unique book that will inspire writers with thoughtful devotions and challenge them to think more deeply about their craft and their Creator. I like the variety of topics that were chosen and the wisdom the authors shared. Writers will especially appreciate the reflection section that gives them space to process what they've read. I highly recommend this book to all writers who are looking for encouragement and inspiration.

As the Ink Flows is a collection of ninety devotions from five Canadian writers and speakers. The contents are divided by topic: “the craft, inspiration, know yourself, well-being, personalities, and faithfulness.”

The devotional component of each entry is the standard Scripture quote, devotional thought, and prayer, but what sets these devotions apart is the application portion. Each one includes a question for reflection and a writing prompt for the day.

This is an approachable resource that wil

As the Ink Flows is a collection of ninety devotions written by five authors to inspire Christian writers and/or speakers. Although I am not a writer, I enjoyed reading through the different devotions, the prayers, reflections, and prompts included in each selection. They are inspiring, uplifting, and a very valuable help to those who are striving to be more spiritual in their writing or speaking. I would also recommend this for those who keep journals or would like to use the devotions to enhan ...more

Ask the Ink Flows inspired and encouraged me to delve deeper into my relationship with God. The reflections and writing prompts that follow the devotions are sure to stir the creative juices of Christian writers and speakers. This book will also be a valuable resource for writing groups.

Though books of devotions abound, As the Ink Flows is a unique collection of ninety meditations written by five Canadian writers for writers—and speakers too.

Section divisions (The Craft; Inspiration; Know Yourself; Well-Being; Personalities; and Faithfulness) demonstrate how wide-ranging and thorough this book is.

Devotions are short. A quoted scripture verse, two to five paragraphs on the day’s theme, followed by a one-line prayer completes on one page. Each is followed by a “Let the Ink Flow”

I never knew such a book existed, designed to inspire Christian writers. I grabbed it up and began to read it. The daily entries are short but deep and thoughtful. Every day the entries end with a writing exercise to spark creativity. I didn't want it to end!

It has been a LONG time since I have done any writing outside of my reviews (journaling/poetry/creative ramblings) and in just a few days of reading these devotions, my passion was reignited and the encouragement is exhilarating! I really enjoyed the prayer at the end of each devotion entry. The prompts and activities are excellent to motivate those creative juices. Whether you are a blogger, speaker, author or you just enjoy expressing yourself through writing, this devotional is for you!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this collection of devotionals. All the contributors did an amazing job of placing Godly inspired words into life bringing devotionals and reflections that not only speak to the Christian author, but all authors and audiences. I especially enjoyed the reflections and prompt outline of this devotional, as it engages the reader to channel the author in them as they focus on the Word of God. Definitely a resource authors and speakers should keep at their disposa ...more
