Many times I have been asked, "Will you look at my manuscript and give me your opinion?" Or, "Will you look at my manuscript and edit it?" I did that for a while, at no cost. Until the day I realized I spent more time editing other people's work for free than I did writing my own, which was my bread and butter. And with that, the editing arm of my company grew fingers. I find editing issues in nearly every manuscript, especially those of new writers. I made the same mistakes early on. After discussing the situation with a few of my conference director friends, I decided the time had come to offer Common Mistakes Writers Make as a conference workshop. And so I did. After one of those conferences, an editor wisely asked, "Have you thought about putting this workshop into the form of a book?" I had not until that moment. (Insert smile here.) What you are about to read is not rocket science. These pages are not filled with English Grammar 101 lessons (although one of the best things you can do for yourself as a writer is to find an old seventh grade English grammar textbook, read it, and complete the exercises). I don't claim to be the final authority on all the issues, but I know what I know. This book is but a small collection of editing mistakes I often find in the work that comes across my desk (and sometimes by my own hand). It shouldn't take long for you to read it, but when you reach the end of it, I hope you ll have had some aha moments. I'm writing conversationally, by the way, because I pretend I am speaking directly to you as I write, my friend. I'm basically telling you what I think I know. If you'd like, you can let me know what you think (that is, if you are nice about it) by going to my website EvaMarieEversonAuthor.com and selecting the contact tab.
This book is for the new Christian writer or the writer looking to decide how God wants them to incorporate their faith into their writing. How do we know what the Lord wants us to do? Are we being called to write or do we want to write for Him as an offering? What is required of the author using their writing for the Lord and how do they go about it? What do we really want to achieve with our writing, and how do we define success?

The foundational book in Petersons five volume series reunites spirituality and theology in a cultural context that has torn apart these two vital faces of Christian faith.
This book contains a collection of accompanied vocalises along with strategies for their effective use. These exercises have been proven effective by two of America's leading choral conductors - Weston Noble and Paul Nesheim. The exercises attempt to provide technical value and expressive appeal. The work is intended as a warm-up and voice building tool for the choral rehearsal, but can also be adapted for private and class voice instruction. Many of the vocalises may be used successfully by students of any age and ability level, while other exercises are specifically intended for intermediate or advanced singers. This Singers' Edition contains the melodies for each of the 68 vocalises found in the Director's Edition. Each vocalise is printed in the lowest and highest keys along with an indication of the number of repetitions necessary to arrive at the high key. (Director's edition 30/1054R). / Text / Text
Though bringing people to new birth in Christ through evangelism is essential, says Peterson, isnt it obvious that growth in Christ is equally essential? Yet the American church does not treat Christian growth and character formation with equivalent urgency. We are generally uneasy with the quiet, obscure conditions in which growth takes place, and building maturity in Christ too often gets relegated to footnote status in the text of our lives. In Practice Resurrection Peterson brings the voice of Scripture - especially Pauls letter to the Ephesians - and the voice of the contemporary Christian congregation together to unpack what it means to fully grow up to the stature of Christ. Petersons robust discussion will move readers to restore transformed Christian character to the center of their lives. This helpful study guide is designed to enable small groups in schools or churches - or even individuals - to delve deeper into the timely wisdom of Practice Resurrection: A Conversation on Growing Up in Christ. Peter Santucci here breaks up Petersons book into thirteen sessions, each of which contains a summary, select quotes to consider, questions for interaction, and a prayer drawn from the text of Ephesians that is covered in the corresponding book chapter.
