How to Overcome Writer's Block
How can you overcome writer's block? I give you seven steps that could work for you! Stop thinking you are alone with a blank page (see that Google blank page on my video - there for a purpose)! The stall can happen to us all. But we can't just sit in it, wallowing and worrying. Write anything. Write something. You can work on all of it later. Just start writing. I challenge you!  Follow me and share the love: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jenlowrywrites/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jenlowrywrites Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jenlowrywrites/ Website: www.jenlowrywrites.com Podcast: https://anchor.fm/jen-lowry-writes Email me at jenlowrywrites@gmail.com for any author questions!

Thank You From My 💜 For The Message To My Son
When my 16 year old son asked me to tell a UFC fighter that he had been praying for him - the famous fighter messaged my son back. I want to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for giving my son that memory. The first time he asked me to ever message someone and tell them we were praying, the Lord connected us and somehow in your famous world, you took the time to notice and respond to my sweetheart. Thank you. When I become famous ... let me have the same heart for youth and for helping those around me. The challenge is on. Let us repeat, “When we become famous ...” and spend time with the Lord. Journal down your list. Keep it. Amen. 🙏
