This was a very valuable workshop. It was a day well spent and worthy of both the time and money investment. If a person has any thoughts of writing a book now or in the future, this workshop will lay a foundation from which to write and also understand the process of publishing. —Dan Kral, President, JDT International
 
You provide a great service!  It was paced well, informative, adaptable, and engaging.  Although I’ve had years to think about this book, you plunged me through some sticking points and really encouraged me to press on.  I noticed other participants gaining momentum and significant gains in their writing.  Proof is in the pudding and you knocked it out of the park. —Mark Spencer, Senior Pastor, Bridgewood Community Church
 
David is a respected part of my team who is helping me share what God has entrusted to me through books. —Joan Hunter 

This workshop is in partnership with the International Healing Conference hosted by RAIN Ministries. However, please direct all questions to David Sluka and not to RAIN Ministries or Redeeming Love Church. They will only refer you back to me.
