What helps turn your book into a ministry?  Kathi and Michele talk today about a book that can go for the long haul and be turned into a ministry.  Some may have the ministry first, some may have a book that is just for a season, how can you recognize the opportunity? 

Kathi poses 3 questions for you: 

  1. Is this a subject you can be excited for over the long haul? 
  2. Can you speak from a place of authority? 
  3. Is there a need for the topic over the long term? 

Pay attention to your audience. What are they asking? 

Kathi’s books: 

The Husband Project
Happy Habits for Every Couple
Praying God’s Word for Your Husband
Clutter Free
*Also the Clutter Free Bible Study – What Jesus Has to Say About Your Stuff

Michele’s books:
I Am

In today’s episode, you will know:

  • When is it time to turn a book into a ministry? 
  • Can your audience talk about your topic forever? 
  • Where is the area I have earned the right to speak into people’s lives?
