It's been a little while since I did an update post. Here are a few things I've been wanting to share with you all:
New Free Book
I've created a special gift for Faithspring visitors, "5 Questions That Create Clarity." This short book was a passion project of mine. These were very much questions I have been asking myself for the past few years, and even more so as I've been building the Faithspring community. You can grab a copy here: http://www.faithspring.org/questions-clarity/
Live Trainings on Youtube
I plan to make Live Video Trainings a regular part of my writing and teaching schedule. Right now, if you want to catch them live, go over and like my Facebook page. After they are finished, I am uploading them all to YouTube so they can be more easily organized and shared. The first two trainings that are up are How To Make A Bible Habit That Sticks and How To Choose A Bible Translation. If this sounds like something you're interested in, please subscribe here: Faithspring YouTube Channel.
70% Off Collection
As a thank you to all the new subscribers, I lowered the price on the Testament Heroes Box Set (Books 1-6).
It retails for $14.95, and I had it listed for $9.99. But for the next few weeks, you can grab this 437 page collection for only $4.99!
As a reminder, it includes 168 daily devotions from my books on Abraham, Jacob, Job, David, Ruth, and Esther. Grab your copy here: http://a.co/iHHqdEi
We Are Unquiet Giveaway
My wife is holding a giveaway for her podcast listeners. If you haven't subscribed yet, you can find her podcast here: We Are Unquiet. The giveaway was sponsored by one of the organizations she interviewed. Listen to Episode 9 for more details (it's a great one!). And you can enter the giveaway here: Brea Ramos Giveaway.
Most of my life has been consumed by the creation of Faithspring this year. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to work hard - my health has held up (largely due to my wife's help). We've been gradually moving towards a more minimalist lifestyle and this has really impacted our diet. I think I will write more about this in the new year, but its been quite a journey and I can definitely feel the positive differences in my body.
As part of my work with Faithspring, I also had some professional pictures done by a local photographer: http://www.shannonahlstrandphoto.com/. If you are in the Cleveland area and need some photo work done, I highly recommend you check out her work! You'll see some of the new photos right here (on ramosauthor.com) but also on Faithspring.
Later this month I'll be attending a local conference for entrepreneurs. I love the entrepreneurial community - its energy, positivity, and optimism are refreshing! The conference is called StartupScaleup. My hope is that I will be able to connect with some other ambitious Christians during the event.
I'd love to answer any questions you have! Go ahead and ask in the comments below, and I'll do my best to answer. Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I've learned a ton in 2017, and I believe that will lead my writing to truly reach a new level in 2018.
