Ozarks Chapter American Christian Writers
      • Are you a Christian writer seeking fellowship and inspiration?
      • Do you want to learn about Christian markets and publishers?
      • Do you feel God's call to write yet don't know where to start?


This summer we will expand on our Summer Reading Club activities. Our summer book will be Priestly Pens: 21 Days of Encouragement for Christian Writers by C.J. Hitz and Shelley Hitz, founders of the Kingdom Writers group and Christian Book Academy (christianbookacademy.com).

We will meet for brunch at a different area restaurant every 3-4 weeks during the summer only. Register by email to OzarksACW@yahoo.com so you’ll be on the summer email list and so we’ll know how many seats to save for each meeting.

The book is available in print ($9.99) or e-book ($2.99) formats from Amazon, and is free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited member.
A free Kindle reader app is available for smartphones and computers at https://tinyurl.com/ra39cud. It’s an encouraging book however you read it.

C.J. is a preacher, and he and his wife Shelley felt God’s call to write and to help other Christian writers follow their calling. Their other books include: Fuel for the Soul: 21 Devotionals that Nourish; The Mathematics of Jesus; 21 Stories of Generosity: Real Stories to Inspire a Full Life; Unshackled and Free: True Stories of Forgiveness; and Broken Crayons Still Color: From Our Mess to God’s Masterpiece.

They also run Kingdom Writers, and have recently published a book by the same title “Kingdom Writers; Move Forward in God’s Call to Write.”

The authors say “We want to encourage fellow Christian writers who understand the battle. Our prayer is that each of these devotions will provide a nugget of truth that helps refill you to be a "priestly pen" in the hands of the Author of Life!”
