Pam is With Jesus

A great friend and talented writer and poet, Pamela Pimental passed away this morning. We will miss her smiling face, her sense of humor, fabulous writing and skilled critiques. Pam's life was filled with suffering, but today she has no more pain or suffering. She is with Jesus and Paul, her late husband. What could be better?

I will update this post when I have more information. Til then, please pray for Pam's wonderful family.

Learn How to Write for Guidepost

Every two years Guidepost has a writing contest. They select twelve winners who receive an all expense paid week in New York to study under Guidepost editors. The deadline for this year is June 12, 2014. Sunrise Christian Writers will feature two workshops on writing for this contest.

Based on workshops led by B.J. Taylor at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference and Marci Seither at Christian Writers Seminar at Redwood Chapel, Sue Tornai will review the Guidepost format and guidelines Thursday, May 1, 2014, 9:30 a.m., at Sunrise Community Church, 8321 Greenback Lane, Room B107, Fair Oaks, CA. Each writer who attends will be invited back Thursday, May 15, 2014 when they will critique each other's stories. This gives each writer time to polish their stories before submission.

Even if you've submitted before, let's work together again. Never give up. We look forward to seeing you.

It's a God Thing

It's a God Thing is a book of forty-two stories, published by Worthy Publishing Company, that will help you experience the heart of God--stories of miracles and love and inspiration. Although I wanted to read it as a devotional, I could not put the book down. Every story is filled with hope and joy and love, the love of our Heavenly Father.

Sue Tornai's "Angel in Scrubs" is the second story, page 17. Read hers but don't miss all the others. They are wonderful. Real people, real life, real grace.
