Breakout Session:

FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE — An Eternal Perspective for Your Writing & Speaking

In the midst of all the striving to build bigger platforms, seek more invitations to speak, or write stunning proposals, have you stopped to think that your passion to write or speak is part of God’s calling on your life, and He will make a way? The journey may not look exactly like you had planned or hoped, but a surrendered heart and keeping an eternal perspective will make all of the difference to combat fear, insecurity and discouragement. Join Judy Dunagan who has been on that same journey, both as an acquisitions editor and new author. She will share how surrendering the dream to write and speak, while still pursuing that dream, helps turn our focus from self to Him.

Acquisitions Editor - Moody Publishers

The vision of Moody Publishers is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and a biblical worldview. Our mission is to educate and edify the Christian and to evangelize the non-Christian. Judy acquires non-fiction books for the women’s line of books at Moody. She is looking to acquire more books that focus on discipling women and inspiring them to go deeper in their walk with Him. She’d like to see proposals with themes related to growing a deep prayer life and a greater love for the Word, a passion for revival, and God redemption stories. She also welcomes proposals focused on marriage or parenting. Her target reader is typically between the ages of 30-55, but she also loves seeing proposals geared to tweens on up.
