    I’m glad to hear more about my long-distance friend, Elaine.
    While her writing credits are wonderful, she neglected to mention that she is a staunch and encouraging friend…

      Brenda, she’s too modest to say that, but I’m glad you said it for her!

      Brenda,
      God has seen fit to use both of us to encourage one another and others. Seems to me, you were one of the ones that encouraged me to start a speaking ministry with the Christian Women’s Clubs.
      Best,
      Elaine

    When I was at the last Inscribe conference in Edmonton I had this feeling that maybe I should stop writing and spend my time an other way. Sigmund Brouwer sure took away that thought and I am now busier as ever.
    I wonder if all writers go through a time of wondering ….? I enjoyed the interview. Seems I got to know Elaine better. I love your cats.

      Addy, I’m glad you’ve got fresh encouragement to keep writing–have you shared what Sigmund said, in a blog post or something? Now I’m curious…

      I’m fairly fresh out of my own most recent time of wondering.

        Janet,
        You have such a wonderful way of supporting others and encouraging them.
        May you be blessed and encouraged to continue baking your cakes to celebrate the fact you have finished another year of writing in obedience to your call and your talent.
        Hugs,
        Elaine

      Hi Addy,
      I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet you at the conference. I was only there for the banquet and to give out the Barnabas Fellowship as I was flying on to Northern Alberta the next day. I think all writers do go through that time of self doubt at one time or another. I often go back to my special verse (Habakkuk 2:2 NIV) to gain God’s direction for my writing.
      Stay encouraged…and keep writing.
      Blessings,
      Elaine

    I loved reading this interview. Janet you are a great interviewer and what a great “subject.” And I loved reading the story of the Christmas Miracle, which I am sure I have read before, but I am of the age when I can enjoy things twice, and often do! 🙂

    Thank you Elaine! The blessing is mutual–but loaded in my benefit I think. 🙂
