Ask the Experts Week Countdown

February 2-6 “Ask the Experts” Week
“Women Authors on Prayer”

I was able to snag one more author girlfriend for an "Ask the Experts" week's discussion on prayer. So please make note and take note of this exciting calendar that starts next week, as we roll out the first week of February at Words to Go:

☺ Mon. Feb. 2 “Praying and Praise" We'll kick off the week by chatting with Neta Jackson author of the Yada Yada Prayer Group series. Neta especially wanted to chat about the topic "Prayer and Praise." Neta said, she'd be especially into talking about "the importance of praise and adoration as a regular part of our prayers--which is actually an important part of spiritual warfare." Each day this week, we invite bloggers to post your thoughts and comments about the myriad of values that can be drawn from a life dedicated to prayer.

☺ Tues. Feb. 3 Girl, you will Bee excited to sit in on this day when author and Christian Communicator Thelma Wells and Patty chat about “Praying God’s Will”

☺. Feb.4 Are you hungering to go deep? Then join author and popular conference and retreat leader Jan Winebrenner and Patty as they discuss “Prayer and Meditation.” Jan is a popular speaker for women's retreats and author of The Grace Of Catastrophe: When What
You know About God is All You Have.

☺ Thurs. Feb. 5 Calling All Cracked Pots!!! Yes, it’s a week of extravagant grace as Women of Faith’s Patsy Clairmont and Patty talk about “Praying From a Surrendered Heart”

☺ MYSTERY GUEST FRIDAY!! She’s a best-selling novelist and this mystery will leave you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who she is! Drop in Friday, Feb. 6 to hear Patty and this Mystery Author discuss the most difficult responsibility in a woman’s faith journey, that of praying for our kids. Join Patty and one of today’s most popular and beloved novelists in a candid discussion just for moms.

The Pinnacles and Pitfalls of Being in Love
Veteran romance editor and author Karen Ball and I will talk about the realities of romance and marriage in real time and how romance can still sizzle out of imperfect relationships.

♥ Additionally, Marilyn Meberg, Women of Faith anchor speaker, humorist, and author of Love Me, Never Leave Me and I will discuss one of the deepest of emotions, the fear of abandonment. Marilyn says of this subject, "We crave connection with the ones we love most, and when our bond with them is broken, damaged, or threatened, we fear being left. We fear abandonment." Join Patty and Marilyn as Romance Week at Words to Go continues to soar.
♥ Husband and wife writing team Steve and Janet Bly will chat with Patty about how romance can go from crazy-wonderful to chaotic. They'll share about their romantic trip to Paris but how they then had to survive the days that followed when Steve received a shocking diagnosis.

♥ Fri. Feb. 13 MYSTERY GUEST FRIDAYS VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIAL hosts a veteran bestselling author whose stories of redemption have touched hearts the world over selling in the millions. One of her novels has never left the bestseller list to this day, nearly a decade later. Your heart will palpitate as this author and Patty discuss the Greatest Romance of All Time. Can you guess what that romance might be, Soul Sisters?
