Keynote Speaker Grace Fox is the popular speaker, global worker, life coach, and author of eight books, including Moving from Fear to Freedom: A Woman’s Guide to Peace in Every Situation and the corresponding Bible study. Her articles and devotionals have been published in more than 40 magazines, including Focus on the Family, Power for Living, Today’s Christian Woman, War Cry, and Reader’s Digest

In her first morning keynote Grace will talk about “Changing the World with Words.” Jesus changed the world through His words. He calls and empowers writers who are Christians to do the same. Her second keynote, “Three Qualities of Successful Writers,” will note that being successful writer means more than writing well and building a platform. Just as we develop our books’ characters, so we must focus on developing our own character qualities. Discover three essential characteristics necessary to soar on your writing journey.
