I am so pleased to be a part of the blog tour for Faithbook of Jesus: Connecting with Jesus Daily, written by Renee Johnson.
I interviewed Renee and here's what she had to say...
How did the concept for this book begin?
This book began 14 years ago when my love for the Word began. However, seven years ago I began praying and working towards publishing this book! I also began blogging devotionals in 2004 and years later was discovered on Twitter by my agent and publisher (NavPress) and made my publishing dreams come true!
Did writing this book stretch you spiritually?
The hard part for me during the process of writing this book was losing my health and suffering through working a full time sales job, which I loved. I’ve never cried so much and journaled like I did when I was going through the issues that led me to writing the book in the first place. It’s amazing how God brought me back to that place of humility and writing out of that to encourage others.
Who was your target for writing the book?
My target for writing this book are 20-somethings and young adults, but really anyone can read it and be encouraged to connect with Jesus daily.
How much was prayer a part of writing the book?
More than you’ll ever know! You were actually part of my prayer team and, because of people like you, I was able to complete it and now it will soon be on the shelf! Thank you for your prayers.
What is your heart’s desire that the Lord will do in others’ lives as they read your
My number one passion is to get people into the Word daily. You have NO idea what God will do when you fully surrender your life to Him on a daily basis. Keeping thoughts captive. Short accounts (per my favorite devotional Streams in the Desert).
Any last words?
