About Author Janet Chester Bly
After her husband, Stephen, graduated from seminary and began to serve in his first church as pastor, Janet determined to discover her own God-given task. She attended many seminars, took classes, and tried out a variety of ministry opportunities in their new church. And then she attended the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. “I had written in journals, done well in English and Literature classes in high school and college, and composed poems and little stories, but never considered writing as a major pursuit. Exposure at this conference to working writers and face-to-face with real editors turned my life direction completely around.” She learned how to send her devotionals and short stories to magazines.
One day, as she was transcribing some of her husband’s sermons, she noted that they often included creative stories or parables. “He had a way with words,” she says. “I asked him if I could pull some of these samples out, edit them for publishing purposes, and send them to editors.” “Writing’s your thing, not mine. Just so long as it doesn’t involve me.” Months later, he received two thin envelopes in the mail, from two different publications. Checks and notes of acceptance were inside. That got Stephen interested in the process himself. He’s now a Christy award winning author of western novels. Janet’s book, Managing Your Restless Search, grew out of her adventures in her own search to find what God wanted her to do.
