Do you need a moment to simply refocus? Do you need a moment to re-envision your life, purpose, and future as a writer / author? God is doing a new thing, do you see it?
Life has truly dealt us some blows in the past few months. The unimaginable and the unexpected happened, and now it seems that we all are trying to figure out just how to move on in this new season.
Here at Vine Publishing, we get it. We are with you. We are also trying to move with this divine shift (because we know that in spite of it all, God is still in the midst of this...can we get an "Amen!").
But, we really do get it, and that's why we have pulled together a group of Spirit-filled experts to help you BELIEVE AGAIN, SEE AGAIN AND WRITE AGAIN.
