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

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.

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

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.

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

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!
