Wednesdays With Sarah

One of the greatest gifts a leader can bring to the table is to develop a community that people love to be a part of. Let me tell you about a community that I love. This group of creators is welcoming, inspirational, supportive, encouraging, and well . . . downright funny. Every Wednesday night, writers, podcasters, and many other types of creators join together with each other under the leadership of Sarah Rhea Werner and spend time decompressing from the week and building each other up to head back out into the world and be the best creators they can be. You can join in through the Writer’s Mastermind Discord group  or on Sarah’s Twitch channel if you would like to get involved with this amazing community of creators.

But know that the Wednesday night create-a-longs are not the only opportunity you will have for encouragement. You can find tons of information and inspiration from her long-running Write Now podcast, or just visit her website at for even more great content including blogs, newsletters, and more.

If I can offer any piece of advice to my fellow creators and to my fellow leaders, it would be to get involved in a community that supports your craft or arena and lifts your spirits. There are many out there, this just happens to be one I am inspired by.  Know that you are not alone and don’t have to create or lead alone either. Never forget, all you need is just one spark.

‘Tis the Season

Are we just trying to get through the busyness of the season still standing? Maybe the season was meant to bring you more than a deadline.

My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
