In life there are 3 questions we must always ask ourselves. 1.)Who am I? 2.)Where have I been? 3.)Where am I going? We as people must remember that our words and thoughts are powerful, they have the ability to create things into existence. So when we discover who we are, when we remember, where we’ve […]

This weekend the 2016 Wyoming Writer’s Conference attracted many Authors from the towns of Wyoming, and even as far as Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota and Texas.
Some of the participants were attending for the first time, and some had been coming for years.
It was a great way to meet other writers, make lasting friendships, and hold dear memories. Some of the presenters included, award winning Author Pamela Fagan Hutchins who shared with the participants the keys of non-traditional publishing and what works best for her. Author Lori Howe shared the Art of Storytelling in Poetry form and the Art of poetry ending. Author John Calderazzo shared many tips in the expertise in the non-fiction genre.
The 3-day conference was held at the Wind River Hotel & Casino.
Next year’s conference will be posted upon the Wyoming Writer’s website when decided by the board where to have it. http://www.wyowriters.org/
2016 has been marked down as a success for the Wyoming Writer’s Conference, with some Authors travelling back home today, some going to other events, and some sticking around Fremont County for a day or so.
I have never rode a train, one day I think it would be nice. Possibly the Trans-Siberian Railway one day. That would be one of my dreams.

Believing in the POWER of FAITH by Darrah J. PEREZ .written on May 30th, 2015.
The POWER of Faith is so important in everyday living. To wake up and have appreciation for life is very important. Seeing the beauty in another day granted, whether the sky is blue or gray, no matter the weather. Clouds, rain, snow, and the best; a beautiful sunshine, take no day for granted.
I wake up each morning with a cup of water in hand and pray to the direction that the sun rises. I Thank the Creator for another majestic day. I pray for my loved ones. I pray for healing and protection. I pray for the righteousness of mankind, animal life, plant life, and everything of this Earth. I pour out my prayers to the Creator and when I feel the peaceful surrounding and serenity, I then pour a little water out of my cup onto the ground as my form of respect to the Creator. I then drink the rest, to absorb the prayers I pray every morning.
I always have faith and believe that my prayers are heard and that when the Creator feels fit to answer them, HE will….ALL IN HIS OWN TIME. For I know, I didn’t keep my wants and wishes inside my being, but instead released them into the universe, where the Creator, the divine angels, and the spirit protectors can then manifest a grand destiny and direction for my life.
Patience is the key to having faith. For with patience, the light within us stays illuminated and remains bright. To see and know when prayers are answered is a wonderful thing. For you know instantly when answers are granted, because within your being you feel grateful and ALWAYS the emotions of being blessed with positive effects are so grand, tears form in the wellness of both eyes. It is then you know that the Creator is listening and watching. It is then you know that you are not alone, no matter how sometimes it is felt that we are completely abandoned, lost and lonely.
The POWER of PRAYER, the POWER of FAITH, and the POWER of HOPE, are a massive combination that Can & Will very well bring out joyful abundance.
It is just up, to each one of US, to ask and not keep silent for what it is, OUR VERY SOULS DESIRE.
For those who don’t pray. And who don’t believe. And who have lost FAITH/HOPE. Try again.
TRY AGAIN and REMEMBER that everything happens for a reason. Everything is meant for us to learn and grow, and become stronger to one day help others become the best at what they are meant to be.
PRAYER is POWER. Prayer opens doorways that non-prayers cannot.
The doorways to abundance.
The doorways to a peaceful, calming, soothing life, filled with FAITH, HOPE & never-ending LOVE.
My burning desire really took off when I was given the decision about what was more important to me. The decision of, was my employer most important in my life, or was poetry reading at a poetry event that I had written an amazing poem titled, “Women Making Life Happen” more important. The day before the event, I told my employer that working for her was not my dream job, and that my passion lied within inspiring and uplifting others. I quit that same day that I told her this.
I was upset, confused, and unsure at the moment, not sure if I was making the right choice.
The day of the event, I dressed in my best to impress, and went in there with my head held high, and read my 3 poems like a true champ. The applause of the audience made me feel spectacular.
And from that day forward, I vowed to get my self-help poetry book complete. The book that I had begun writing years earlier before, but just never had the time or energy to finish it. I wrote endlessly days upon days, anywhere from short stories, new poems, and typing up older poems and short stories. I joined writers groups and was even made an admin. for a site on Facebook called Writers of The Storm. I read poems upon poems giving feedback to all the members of the group. I learned of a site called http://www.worldpoetryopenmic.net/ and called in a few times to share many poems to the live air.
In my mind, in my heart, and in my soul, I had this burning desire to be heard. To get my work recognized and acknowledged by people near and far. I submitted a 10,000 word short story to a contest in freeditorial.com in hopes of winning to fulfill my burning desire of taking my gift to its next step. I entered my simulated photography combined with my best poems into a local art show in hopes of winning as well. I entered another contest submitting another short story in hopes of it being selected for publication within an anthology book. I submitted an article to a site called Write for Healing and it was selected for the May 5th publication. It was a great feeling and a start to what was yet to come. My self-help poetry book is complete and ready now for publication. Through all this I have much appreciation and feel very well accomplished.
I have inspired many of my close friends and now write full-time guided in what it is I am meant to do in this life.
Writing, sharing, and helping others through my life’s journey is my destined purpose. The accomplished feeling is felt deep within.
A friend who knows of my journey, shared a message about a program called The Quantum Leap Program with me, and as I read the story attached, tears welled up in my eyes, as I thought of my own journey of how sometimes I too felt at times, that this writer’s journey is rough and very frustrating. But the story attached was also to me a sign and encouragement to keep going because my rewards were yet to come.
I knew this was the Creators way of telling me, “I know it has been hard, but you’re almost there. KEEP GOING.”
My friend sharing this with me, was very well meant for me. I know that and can definitely feel that is was meant for me to come across it, whether I am selected as an applicant or not. For it is my mission to be heard ONE way or another. And I won’t stop even after succeeding.
This article was well written. I commend the author for a job well done!
Sex is a beautiful thing, and sex is a powerful thing. After all, God created it!
And it’s important for you to know that the reason God puts restrictions on sex is not because He is a cosmic killjoy who hates to see us having fun. That’s not it. The reason He has restricted it is because sex has a very powerful purpose in life.
The purpose for sex is to
create a supernatural bond
between a husband and wife
that will never be broken.
In line with this,
sex is actually
designed to be addictive!
Sex creates a nuclear-powered desire for a husband to be with his wife. It makes him think about her throughout the day. It makes him eager to be with her. It makes him want to serve her and to love her. And for the woman, it helps her to feel the closeness…
