“Lifelines: Writers as Champions for a Hurting World”

Ronie Kendig

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 (niv)

 

OCW is delighted to welcome Ronie Kendig to our winter conference in Salem. As she shares her passion for helping people, especially those who are hurting, we’ll learn how to throw lifelines to those around us as we seek to share God’s love and grace through our writing.

Since 2010, Ronie’s books have hit best-seller lists and garnered countless awards and critical acclaim, including her Christy Award-winning Wolfsbane (romantic suspense) and Carol Award finalist The Warrior’s Seal. Other award-winning titles include Trinity: Military Dog and Firethorn (fiction suspense). She has written more than 15 novels of military intrigue (within five different series). Ronie speaks and teaches across the country and mentors other writers. She is also a monthly columnist at the award-winning blog “Novel Rocket” and is active with the American Christian Fiction Writers. She has a psychology degree from Liberty University. Ronie and her military husband have raised and homeschooled their four children in Northern Virginia.

In Ronie’s first keynote, “Champion It Forward: Be a Champion,” we’ll consider how to pay it forward to be a champion for others. Even though writing can be a solitary endeavor, we’re not alone. Just as we can “pay it forward” in a drive-thru line, we can pay it forward in the life-line. Ronie will guide us to use our writing as a positive voice in a negative world.

Sometimes it’s difficult to move beyond our own struggles to reach out to those around us. In her second keynote, “Ecstatic Beauty: Using Our Trials and Pain to Reach Others,” Ronie will challenge us to rethink our stumbling blocks as steps to climb. We’ll learn to draw from our life experiences to recreate our lifelines for others.

Join us on February 24th for encouragement and writing instruction from talented storyteller Ronie Kendig. We look forward to hearing Ronie’s words of practical guidance on how we can use the gifts God has given us to share His love and grace.
