Each Friday I share some of my favorite finds related to praying or writing. If I think it could help you pray or write better, or just “be” better, I’ll include it below.

Do you have someone else’s article or post to share? Join the Contemplative Writers Facebook group, comment on today’s post on my Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter (@LisaKDeam) to nominate your favorite articles, blog posts, and books by Thursday at noon each week.


Monday Merton: Is the Church Redemptive or Self-Serving? via Ed Cyzewski (when the mission of the Church becomes distorted)

Daily Lectio Divina: Hildegard of Bingen via Laura Cavanaugh (a guided lectio divina podcast)

Only One Platform Will Last via Karen Swallow Prior (it’s time to reimagine the p-word)

The Long View on a Writer’s Work via Andi Cumbo-Floyd (are you writing for now or for the long-view, or both?)

Why I’m Committing to the Work-Ahead Advantage via Ann Kroeker (try writing ahead for the busy or dry times that will come)
