With Blended Voices

Little children often want to sound like their mom or dad. It’s comical to hear mature words come out of tiny mouths.

As they grow, though, children develop their own speech habits and quirks, which we often carry into adulthood.

Writers are encouraged to establish their own “voice” as well. Reading would get quite boring if everyone sounded the same.

Thus, writers spend long hours writing (and reading) to discover and develop their own style.

However, developing that style shouldn’t be so we can pull away from each other and succeed in our own right. As Christians, it shouldn’t be about standing out from the crowd.  Simon Estes

Instead we need to join together, blending our unique voices to create a beautiful symphony proclaiming the Gospel message of love and salvation.

After all, it’s His message that truly matters. And He is calling us to share it.

“… and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak God’s message with boldness” (Acts 4:31).

    Hi Julie,

    Enjoyed your thoughts on finding your voice as a writer. As a therapist, I often help women find their voice and now as a writer, I am learning to find my writing voice as well. Thanks for sharing!
