    I love that several of us have looked at the question of niche and decided for now we will simply trust in Him and write from our hearts. I am a want-to-be planner that is actually a fly by the seat of my pants writer too. God seems to always give me something to say although it may not be in the right flow, form and the grammar not right but it is His words through me.

      I absolutely love this, Amy:

      but it is His words through me.

        I appreciated the reminder to keep my focus on God when writing and to not fear what man might have to say about what I write…I do desire for my life to be a sweet smelling aroma before God and to have a heart that offers sacrifices of praise to our awesome God! 🙂 I also found it funny that you mentioned the same words I did in my blog writing assignment which were, “the good, bad and ugly!” 🙂
