Goodreads asked Jon Clendenin:

How do you get inspired to write?

Jon Clendenin Our God is a speaking God. Everyday, He speaks and shows things to His children! For me, there are seasons when the message is so strong that I know I need to write.

Writing is a lot of work. Each book goes through several drafts before getting an editor involved. And then, of course, it really goes through the grinder.

Holding up to scrutiny intimate precious words from God takes courage. It is also emotionally draining. I know and have seen how the editorial process results in a much clearer message.
