OUR SPEAKER FOR HAS CHANGED...
Detective Juliane has had a death in the family and had to unexpectedly go out of town. Juliane will be our guest speaker in August. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
So please join us as our own Marji Lane blesses us with her expertise of the Scrivener program. She'll share with us "What it is, How to use it, and Why it's beneficial." If you have the program, please bring your laptop for a hands-on tour of the helpful tool. And if you don't have the program, be prepared to take notes and see what all the buzz is about. After this meeting, you may want to purchase it to make your writing life easier!
Marji Laine is a homeschooling mom of four. She spends her days transporting kids to and from classes, volleyball, church, and various other pursuits while juggling her various ministries. She also teaches high school expository writing and has taught drama, directed multiple musicals for both children and adults and led worship for over a decade.
An avid photographer, she’s been known to take spontaneous road trips just to laugh and sing with her kids and take as many photographs of interesting things as she can find. Full of Texas sassy, she likes to laugh and doesn’t mind if it happens to be at herself. It’s one of the reasons her writing is full of humor. And because her relationship with the Lord is part of who she is, her characters encounter Christ in realistic ways as they struggle through their circumstances.
Cutting her teeth on Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew inspired a love of unraveling clues and she can still be found watching Perry Mason and Murder She Wrote re-runs. The timing God had of fanning the flames of her desire to write inspirational fiction proved perfect. The passion he infused allowed her to completely commit to her new career, finishing three full novels as well as several articles, scripts and short stories.
