Life doesn’t have to be a constant struggle. You were designed by your creator for a specific purpose. He placed a dream in your heart, a mission in your soul, and a story to tell in your mind. It’s time for you to do what He wants you to do and tell your story, to impact the lives of others and to complete your assignment here on Earth. Write your book and help others by sharing your story with an international audience.
Writing a book can be a daunting task when you’ve never done it before. And there’s always the fear factor. What will my family and friends think about me and my writing? Is my writing any good? Does anyone care about what I have to say? It will take too long. What if I start and don’t finish my book? What if I’m rejected?
Been there, done that, got the scars to prove it. Everybody has a book in them. Including you. Your perspective, your life experiences are unique. You have a message to share that can help other people. Your story can be a ministry it can also earn you enough money to support your outreach work and your family. I know you can do it.
In the Create Your Own Book, 3 hour, Saturday morning workshop you will discover ways to write your book without actually writing, how to write books that people want to buy, how to write a title that people are already searching for, how to self publish your book on Kindle Direct Publishing and Create Space for Free, How to inexpensively outsource the work (editing, book formatting, book promotion, graphics, cover design) you don’t want to do, how to get your cover designed and editing done for as little as $5.00.
You can transform your life, improve your income and move beyond the struggles you have been facing when you begin to move in the direction God wants you to go. Don’t be afraid to share your dream, your mission and your message like I was. Maybe you believe that all of your friends would ridicule you for having a dream and wanting to share it. That’s okay. My friends almost destroyed my dream.
I know how you feel, you see I felt the same way to. I had a longing desire deep in my soul to share my faith, my testimony, my dreams and aspirations but I was afraid. I wanted to be creative. I wanted to write a book that would minister to others. I wanted to produce something that would impact the world but I didn’t know how. I wanted to live a life of significance instead of a life of success. Then my dream almost died when I shared my desires with a few of my writer friends.
My friends laughed at me when I told them I wanted to write a book. They were so negative towards me. They made me feel so unworthy, their words crushed me and I almost gave up.
My wife had recently died of breast cancer. And here I was in my 50′s, a broken man who was defeated and lacking self confidence. I started to give up on my dream, to throw my book writing idea into the trash. I was going down for the last time when I decided to ask one last person’s opinion before I completely gave up on my dream.
I turned to a trusted advisor for help. Tentatively, and reluctantly I approached my Sunday school teacher, the great encourager and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar. I sheepishly asked Zig if he would read a chapter of my book and let me know if I should give up my dream of being an author.
I was nervous the following week as I waited for the weekend to arrive. I approached Zig the next Sunday after class and I asked him. What do you think, should I throw my book writing dream in the trash? To which he replied “You’re a good story teller and you have a story to tell. You absolutely should finish your book.”
Those two sentences of encouragement gave me the confidence and strength to finish my first book Fight the Good Fight: Getting Up After Life Knocks You Down even though it took me two years to complete the book. Zig was gracious enough to write the forward to my first book.
If I only knew then what I know now I could have finished that book in a week. I want to to be that one voice who offers you encouragement. I want to tell you the same thing Zig told me – You absolutely should finish your book. And I want to help you do it. There are two many naysayers, too many negative dream killers on this planet who verbally discourage people like you and me. But God wants us to be creative, to minister and help others.
How can you profit from the “power, influence and Success Secret“ shared by some of America’s greatest Christian communicator’s?
Beth Moore, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Zig Ziglar, John Maxwell and T.D. Jakes have inspired millions of people with their amazing accomplishments as some of the most effective Christian communicators of our time.
Zig Ziglar, a rags-to-riches motivational speaker/entrepreneur built a global empire from a struggling career as a door to door cookware salesman. Ziglar self-published his first book See You at The Top in 1974. He often proclaimed “This little baby has sold over 2,000,000 copies. I had to self-publish this book because I couldn’t find a publisher. I’m so glad no one wanted to publish it”
Joyce Meyer has authored 80 books and she teaches on a number of topics with a particular focus on the mind, mouth, moods and attitudes. Millions of women have been helped by her message.
Beth Moore is a Biblical teach who focuses on aiding women who desire to model their lives on evangelical Christian principles.
Rick Warren is an author/pastor who has sold so many books that he was able to repay his Church every dollar they had ever paid him as Pastor. He’s earned so much money from book sales that he does not take a salary from his Church. He has been invited to speak at national and international forums, including the United Nations. His positive impact on society enabled him to be named one of “America’s Top 25 Leaders” in the October 31, 2005, issue of U.S. News and World Report.
Bring your laptop with you. We will help you produce a working manuscript & lay-out the dimensions of your book. Sandwiches & Soda will be provided for lunch.
The multi-talented Author, Speaker, and Singer Tammy Daniel will be sharing about her amazing, yet heart wrencing journey through life and talking about where God has brought her “Thus Far” during our Dickson workshop. “Thus Far” is the title of Tammy’s new book which details the battles she has faced in life along with the sweet victories she has enjoyed in her walk with the Lord.
Brenda Dawson is an accomplished horsewoman with a lifelong love of horses. A former middle school teacher, she has been a jockey, barrel racer, and horse trainer. She joins us to talk about her awesome book Running For Home. Here’s just one of the rave reviews for her book. “Not since Mary O’Hara’s “My Friend Flicka” trilogy, has there been a more realistic and heartwarming novel about life, love, and the magnificent animals that help teach us how to experience the abundance that life offers.”
Imagine the positive impact you can have in the lives of others just by sharing your story, your message of faith and of hope. Our world is filled with people who are hurting. People who are broken hearted. Many of them are about to give up. Others are contemplating suicide. They need to hear some good news. They need a lifeline. They need an encouraging word from someone like you and me. God placed latent talent and creativity inside of your DNA. God is creative and he designed you to be creative also. Once you begin to use the talent that God has given you to use you will begin to see that there is genius inside of you. You are loaded with talent and creativity. Yes you are!
Joyce Meyer, Beth Moore, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, John Maxwell, T.D. Jakes and Zig Ziglar have had an impact on people because they were willing to share their message. As a result they have earned enough money to produce more books, DVD’s and CD’s to reach an even larger audience. You may not have the large platform that some of them have. They didn’t have it either when they started out on their journey of faith.
You have a message to share just like these other men. And it’s much easier to do than you ever realized. You just need someone to show you how to put it all together.
Someone needs to hear your story. What if you could encourage someone without hope to not give up? Or save a child’s life by encouraging a young mother to be to have her child? We’re all a part of the body of Christ. You and I will minister to different people. Individually we may not have it all together, but together we can have an impact on this lost and dying world. We can share the good news of Jesus Christ. We can bring a message of hope and healing to those around us. But we have to be willing to do it.
“You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness” -Zig Ziglar
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a voice of encouragement to others. I am so excited to enable others to do what God has called them to do. I can’t tell you what a blessing that is for me.
When you come to our Saturday workshop I will show you how to write your book in a weekend and how to get it published in 5 days. We can help those around us with the message of hope that we have.
Not knowing how to write my book was only one of the problems I faced. The biggest problem was finding a publisher. I sent my manuscript to many Christian publishers and I found a couple who were willing to publish my book. The only problem was that they wanted me to buy $15,000 in books from them and do my own PR and marketing.

I wanted a really good looking book. So I began searching for a leading Christian self-publishing book company. I finally found one who published and distributed my book for $2,000 which was better than 15k but was still very pricey.
Over the next few years I learned how to start a publishing company and I wrote and published another 7 books. Here’s the really good news. I learned how to write and publish books very fast and for free.
And that’s what you’re going to learn at the Create Your Own Book: This Weekend – 3 hour, Saturday workshop.
Do you realize that eBook sales are accelerating at an astronomical pace. When you share your message you have the potential to fund your own ministry and the ministries of other that you love. I’ve placed photos of some of my books here. I receive a royalty check every month from Amazon for my eBook and Print book sales from KDP and Create Space.

The techniques you learn in the Create Your Own Book: 3 hour, Saturday Workshop will help become a published author in no time flat. You will learn how to use a fill in the blanks Book Template and how to write your book in less than time than it takes to watch a football game.
Here’s the important thing life is not about us— it’s about our creator and doing his will while we are here. Life is much bigger than you or me. We weren’t placed here to eat, drink and be merry. We were placed here to serve our creator and to serve others as well. No, life is much greater, much more important than our physical needs. The temptation we face is to live selfishly. But the Bible declares that the things we do for ourselves are temporal. They will pass away. The only things that will last forever are those things that we do for Christ. 1 John 2:15-17
My friend if you want to experience joy unspeakable, if you want God to pour out his favor in your life you must learn the joy of giving and serving others.
“Fulfilling your life mission on earth is an essential part of living for God’s glory. Your mission is a continuation of Jesus’ mission on earth. As his followers, we are to continue what Jesus started. Jesus calls us not only to come to him, but to go for him.” -Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life
Jesus said “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 The Lord didn’t mean for everyone of us to quit our jobs and become missionaries to Iran. But he meant for all of us to share the gospel wherever we go.
It is honorable for you to offer something of value to others in exchange for money. There is nothing wrong with a follower of Christ receiving compensation for the good he shares with others. This principle is taught in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. “He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.” The apostle Paul also taught this principle to the Church at Corinth. “Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. … 1 Corinthians 9:12
If you can produce something of value that ministers to thousands of people you can earn a massive amount of income which will allow you to minister to more people and support more ministry’s. You will have the ability of meeting the needs of others.
There has never been a greater opportunity in the history of the world for all of us to collectively go into all the world with the gospel. Every single one of us can share our faith around the world each day on our computers. We can create blog posts, host internet radio and television programs, write books, and share our message with the world through social media.
And, you don’t have to do it alone. Imagine the power of an Army of devoted followers of Christ banding together, each of us sharing our stories, reaching the world for Christ.
Join me for our Create Your Own Book: This Weekend half day workshop and let’s join hands together, to share our message of hope with others. Together we can have a significant part in building the Kingdom of God. What could be better than living a life of significance!
I didn’t complete my first book until I was 57 years of age. Since then I’ve written eight books and I receive a nice check for royalties on my writing every month. I’ve been interviewed on numerous national television programs and a host of radio programs through out the United States and Canada.
I even host my own television program In Your Corner which airs nationally on Direct TV, Channel 378, every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. I now have a national platform where I can share my faith and my message to a large group of people.
None of this would have ever happened if I hadn’t of sat down and my first book Fight The Good Fight.
Now it’s your turn to share your story. I can’t promise you that you’ll be the next Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, or Zig Ziglar. But I can promise you that you have a book inside of you that needs to be published. Because somebody needs to hear your story.
