OK, so I don’t usually do this, but just this once I will make an exception. It is a contest for a weekend at Laity Lodge retreat center for a writer’s retreat. To be entered into the contest for a drawing, I have to write a blog post about why I need to be included in this writer’s retreat. The winner of the drawing gets free accommodations at the retreat center plus travel expenses.
Laity Lodge is a highly desirable location located in Leakey, Texas. It is an outstanding retreat center for Christians. For more information, visit http://www.laitylodge.org/writers-retreat-ii/.
As a Christian writer, I have a burning desire to attend one of these writer’s retreats to network with other writers and editors. This would be a rare opportunity to learn new techniques and concepts for keeping fresh ideas that I can convert into unique, inspiring copy.
I would be challenged in new ways to stretch my mind and heart; to grow; to improve myself; to learn; to commune with God in an unique setting away from the normal cares of this world.
I believe that we are here to commune with God. I believe that we are here to grow. I believe that we have a spiritual mandate to accomplish these tasks during this short time on earth. We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ to help to facilitate this growth for others; to help to bring to fruition that which God has ordained. This retreat would help me to improve toward those ends.
