This summer, I was in New Mexico at a Christian college convention visiting my father.  One day, a group of the missionaries went to lunch at a Mexican restaurant, and I joined my father.  I sat by a gentleman named Randall Gallaway.  He asked me about my hobbies and what I enjoyed doing, and he found out promptly that I was in the U.S. Army.  He told me that he supported me, but then changed the tone.  He told me that as good as it was being in the Army, the Army doesn’t bring people to Christ.  That really affected me.  It is still affecting me today.  He told me that he had worked for many years with African students.  He told me that there was a huge need in the world for Christian men and women to start orphanages.  He explained that I would be perfect for it because of my military training, and that I could also write while directing an orphanage.  I told him I would pray about it.

As a graduate student I attended my first Evangelical Press Association (EPA) convention. That was 35 years ago. But I still have notes from a workshop on writing the “perfect circle” article. That is, you start with a “Wow!” element in the lead and conclude by referring back to the same “Wow!” element—thus bringing the reader full circle.

That little structure served me well over the years. You never know what you might come away with from a training conference.

“Tetapi apa yang keluar dari mulut berasal dari hati.” Mengambil pernyataan ini sedikit lebih jauh, apa yang ada dalam hati kita tidak hanya tercermin dalam kata-kata yang kita ucapkan, tetapi juga dalam apa yang kita pikirkan, dan jika kita adalah seorang penulis, itu akan tercermin dalam apa yang kita tulis.
