        COMING UP:  Join us as we welcome Julie Court to share with us. She uses her
        gift with words to write training materials, lesson plans, Bible Studies, sermons,
        the Incredible Life Makeover book and more.  She also speaks and teaches on a 
        variety of subjects:  writing, leadership, communication, family life, intimacy,  
        healing, believer's authority, spiritual warfare, personal transformation and 
        freedom ministries.  

        Julie's intimate connection to God, even amidst painful life experiences, inspires
        others to pursue face-to-face encounters with the King of Kings.  She seeks the 
        ways, purposes, and mysteries of her Father and shares them to equip the body
        of Christ.  She currently works at Hope Gospel Mission in Eau Claire, WI, pastors
        the Freedom community, and speaks at conferences, retreats, and events 
        through her non-profit ministry, New Life for Today.
         We will be taking a break from critique time until January 2017.  Keep writing 
        and we'll start up again soon!

        See you at the November meeting!
