Readers, you may have noticed how we rotate posts between nine Finding God Daily writers. Professional achievements are on our About page, but you may not realize how unique each writer’s style is, nor the amazing variety of topics they have covered!
So far we’ve posted 241 articles, with 14,131 page views (in five months) and welcomed site visitors from 121 different countries.
We are thrilled, to say the least!
All our current writers are members of AWSA (Advanced Writers and Speakers Association) as Christian authors and gifted national speakers. These busy ladies dedicate time to us between book writing and traveling because they are passionate about helping YOU find God: for the first time, or to help you grow daily in faith.
This month I’d like to profile three of our most prolific writers: Dianne Butts, Karen O’Connor, and Deborah Lovett:
Finding God Daily: Our Writers’ Specialties
What makes Dianne E. Butts unique? Dianne specializes in writing about current and historical events from a biblical point of view, related to archaeology, history, prophecy, science, movies, and sometimes controversial people or issues.
Recent topics? Rick Warren, deadly DUIs, Thomas Kinkade, earthquakes, elder care, the Jesus Boat, October Baby, planet Kepler 22-b, Tim Tebow, and unplanned pregnancy. How’s that for variety? Homeschoolers take note: there’s lots to learn from Dianne!
Karen O’Connor specializes in humor (especially senior moments) and in the true spirit of Finding God Daily: paying attention to God in our daily lives. Who knew you could find God in a stew pot, a stick of butter, or fashion?
But Karen also writes about finding God in difficult places: in prison, helping the homeless, after tornadoes and during personal struggles including sleeplessness, discouragement, loneliness and after divorce. Karen helps us see how God is always present: we simply need to stop and pay attention.
Offering you warm encouragement is Deborah Lovett, who addresses her readers as if she is pouring out her heart to them. She challenges us to read the life-giving word of God. Click on scripture links in her articles to embark on a study of your own.
Deborah relates to many struggles you may have had, and shows how God can get people through tough times. She’s written about disappointment, failure to believe in God, spiritual battles, loss of a loved one to suicide, and God’s love.
By the way, our publisher, Linda Evans Shepherd, is one of the most versatile and creative people I know. You can meet her in the video below. Among a zillion other projects (including 30 books published and mentoring hundreds of AWSA authors) Linda had the vision to create Finding God Daily and other blogs, including Thinking About Suicide and GodTest, where people can find help and hope.
