Community Encouragement in Writing

Writing in community can be a rewarding experience. I recently participated in Anita Ojeda’s #write28days – a twenty-eight day writing challenge where participants commit to write each day of February. Anita provided daily writing prompts which some of us used while others chose to write daily about a subject dear to their heart.

Here are my Thoughts and Ponderings for February 2022: Devotional Thoughts and Ponderings 28-Day Writing Challenge – Strength with Dignity

You can find Anita’s wonderful devotionals for nature lovers and the inspiring lessons she learned: 28 Devotionals for People Who Love God’s Second Book | Anita Ojeda

Lisa Burgess chose to write about 28 life mantras: Find Your Mantra {28 Daily Mantras}…Table of Contents (lisanotes.com)

Deborah Rutherford wrote daily prayer poems: Write 28 Days of Prayer Poems – Deborah Rutherford

Barb Hegreberg wrote her musings on life in Our Father’s World: Write 28 Days – My Life in Our Father’s World (mylifeinourfathersworld.com)

And Mandy Farmer posted her writings, A Closer Look at Psalm 119, on Instagram under mandy_holds_u_up

I hope you enjoy these inspiring writings, and they encourage you to write before the Lord. Whether you write in your own personal journal (for your eyes only!) or in a public setting to encourage others, writing is an endeavor that is good for the soul. Writing in community brings encouragement to the heart and souls of all those who participate in writing together. Yet those who read their labor of love, walk away richer too.

How can we participate in community this week, so that we encourage others in their heart endeavors?

“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.” ~ Colossians 3:23-24 NASB

    1. I enjoyed reading everyone’s daily posts, Lisa. And your mantras were enlightening, so we appreciate you sharing them with us.

  1. Wow!!

    Thank you for the shout out. 📣.

    Your blog has been a great help to me recently.

    Being in this community makes each of us better. Better writers. Better communicators. Better wives, mothers, & friends. And of course better servants of Christ.

    Have a wonderful week!

    1. I’m glad you have been encouraged through the blog, Barb. I got the idea of highlighting yours and other people’s posts that meant so much to me during the 28-Day Challenge from you, so thank you! So true, Barb, the encouragement we share and receive from one another makes us better in every area of life.

  2. I do sometimes miss those workshop days of college where we read each other’s work and talked about it. Or being a part of a writer’s group. The old-fashioned types of writing communities. LOL Now though, we have so many other options. Like these writing challenges. I did enjoy reading some of these gifts of writing.

    1. So true, Theresa, our online writing communities provide support and encouragement, while the old-fashioned writing communities provided constructive feedback. Each type of community has its strengths and weaknesses.

  3. Yes … I think back over the years to the joy and comaraderie of writing in community with other kindred spirits. It’s a blessing indeed, Lisa. Creating in the company of others makes the experience so much more enriching! It’s one of the aspects of blogging I so dearly love.
