TESTIMONIALS

Sarah Salter

One of the reasons that I waited so long to begin my personal novel journey was because I believed that writing was something that I would have to do in isolation. I believed that I wouldn't have any support or help. I was so wrong!! When God finally broke through my hard head and made it clear that I was to rewrite my screenplay into a novel, I went to Google and searched, "Christian Fiction Writing" and it brought me to you (ACFW). And here I am! And oh, how my life is infinitely richer! I have fallen in love with writing again. And I have found a great big group of cheerleaders! I am fully supported and far from isolated.
