By Melony Teague

If you love reading and books as much as I do, you will appreciate that wonderful feeling when you turn the last page and you sigh with satisfaction, reading a good book is such a wonderful gift. I am so grateful for authors, their craft, their skill, their heart and their resilience. It is because of what they do that we enjoy hours of entertainment, through reading.

This made me want to spotlight authors here today and give them a shout out for a job well done.

One of the main reasons for writing the devotional, As the Ink Flows, was to encourage authors, writers and speakers in what they do. Writing can be a lonely profession, with many hours spent crafting words into a story, many times without much contact with the outside world for days on end, and then the scary business of marketing and book signings and such, where they put themselves out there—usually out of their comfort zones. Most writers are introverts, but there are some extroverts out there among them.

Writers write, because they can’t not.

Please join me today in giving a shout out to your favorite authors, and thanking them for what they do.


As the Ink Flows is a dazzling goldmine of inspirational nuggets so creative and concise, it’s a must-have devotional for writers, pastors, speakers, or anyone in ministry!” —Julie Lessman, award-winning author of The Daughters of Boston and Heart of San Francisco series

“If you are a writer… a blogger… a creative person … a speaker … a ministry leader … or you know someone who is, As the Ink Flows would be a phenomenal asset for your devotional needs.  The devotions are quick to grab before getting ready in the morning, on your lunch hour, or during a writing break but are also full of profound truth that settles in the heart and points to Jesus. These co-authors love Jesus and love writing, and it shows, their different writing voices complementing each other and providing options for all sorts of preferred reading styles.” —Carrie Schmidt.
