Women of the Redbud Writers Guild
Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives
"The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." —Anais Nin
A close-knit community of Christian women writers share compelling and courageous personal journeys of transformation and growth toward finding their unique voices and invite other women to join them on the beautiful journey.
"Once I began reading these stories I couldn't stop. Each writer is a strong woman who has learned much from life and God. Gritty, funny, painful, affirming. No punches are pulled, but grace abounds."
—Luci Shaw, poet, author of The Thumbprint in the Clay
"Readers will find gold within this pages. Excellent writing often springs from deep sorrow that has softened hearts, widened vision, and press its bearer into the Man of Sorrows."
— Dee Brestin, author of The Friendships of Women
