Writing On Wednesdays (WOW!) writing & speaking tips

Writing On Wednesdays

How is your new year going?

This year I’ve started a “new thing” at my Facebook Business Page. I’m offering a “Writing On Wednesdays” Facebook Live video (free of charge!) to give practical tips for writers and speakers. This is to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to write your book(s) and step out speaking this year!

I’ll also be sharing about a new writers and speakers virtual training that I have coming up soon, so stay tuned for details!

You can join me each Wednesday at 2 p.m. Central Time (3 p.m. Eastern Time) at my Facebook Business Page at this link below:

Bring your fave hot or cold drink, your questions, and a friend! I can’t wait to see you there!

Kim’s beautiful condo home

Recently I traveled to Antigua, Guatemala, for the first time. Although I want to travel all around the world, Guatemala was never on my radar. But it was a “God thing.” I’m writing a Guatemala blog series to show you the beautiful pictures and to share about the amazing things God did there. This is Blog #8,  Kim’s beautiful condo home. You can read my other blogs in this Guatemala Blog Series at the end of this post.

Once in awhile, someone comes across your path who powerfully impacts you. Last year, I befriended one such person on Facebook —Kim Rogers. Kim has an incredible story, which is included in the Epilogue of my book for sale on Amazon, Signs of God’s Love: Finding Hope in the Midst Of Crisis

Kim Rogers, Heart for Guatemala

Kim Rogers
Founder, Heart for Guatemala

Known locally as the “Ambassador to Antigua,” Kim has influenced more than 60 people to visit the city, leveraging tourism to share her vision of creating economic and educational opportunities for the people of Guatemala. 

Kim is founder and owner of the not-for-profit organization, Heart for Guatemala, which helps to provide disadvantaged children with food, education, and school supplies.

You can donate to Heart for Guatemala here, buy Guatemalan specialty coffee here to help local women who produce it (it is great coffee and comes in a cute, colorful bag!), or take vision trips here to see this beautiful land yourself, “The Land of Eternal Spring.” I traveled there from November 2-10, 2020, the first time I’d ever been there and I hope to go again soon.

Toward the end of my week in Antigua as I was preparing to go home to the USA, Kim and her boyfriend Stan Edwards urged me to stay longer. Kim said a week wasn’t nearly long enough to see and experience Guatemala. She wanted to show me around more. I had booked my beautiful Air BnB only until Sunday that week, and my money was running out!

She and Stan generously invited me to stay at Kim’s beautiful condo home in Jocotenango free, and Stan said no worries, they’d even feed me! (And Stan is an amazing cook!) After praying about it and sensing this is what God wanted me to do, I agreed, packed up my bags, and my driver Allan took me to their lovely house.

It was the right decision, and I am so glad that I stayed! Just one of the unexpected things God did through me while I was there was helping to feed the hungry people at Parque Central with Mario’s Project–what an honor!

I love Kim’s and Stan’s place. This blog post with pics gives you a virtual tour. Enjoy!

Do you have a “one word” yet for 2021? Here is mine.


Do you have a “one word” yet for 2021? I started doing this a few years ago, to set a “theme” and a focus for the whole year, instead of making New Year’s resolutions (which were usually broken before January was over!). 

It seems the “one word” comes as I’m just going about my day, doing routine things or praying. I ask God for the word that HE desires for me. I’m always tested on the word by God!

At the end of December 2019, I received the word, “hope,” for 2020. At the time I didn’t understand why God gave me that specific word. Now I get it, looking back over the crazy, chaotic, fearful year of 2020. Every day, I needed to have hope in Jesus!

As I’ve been praying the last few days to prepare for 2021, I’ve received an impression or what I call “a nudge from God” of the word “steward.” It is a serious word.
