http://cindysproles.com you will see where Cindy says, “My dream is do nothing more than craft words that speak from the heart.
Tell us about your  book, Spirit & Heart: A Devotional Journey

spirit-and-heart Spirit and Heart, we feel, has been blessed by God. It’s the little devotional that just keeps selling. It has solid writing, and devotions that soothe the heart. We hope when readers glean through this book, they find a certain peace that God is with them, warming their hearts and souls.
This book was a six-month project that included writers from our website, and published authors. It includes scripture verses, space to  journal, for individual prayers and words of wisdom from some of today’s best-selling authors.
Listen to God speak as you read His word and reflect on the stories of others. Write down your thoughts and meditate on each day’s message.

This book is a primer, a tool to get you started on the path toward spending your best moments with the Father. Christ says, where your heart is there your treasure will be. Treasure His words and whispers as you walk in the footsteps of award-winning authors.

The daily devotions included in this book are heartfelt stories, lessons, and advice from others who have traveled the devotional journey.
It was a joy to edit and compile these 30 devotions into work that we continue to sell at conferences and on the internet.
What is your personal writing schedule?
My personal writing schedule varies. But I try to write 1800 words a day. It is a goal I usually reach but sometimes, like everyone, I get pulled away.  God has blessed me to be a part of Christian Devotions. www.christiandevotions.us. Our ministry has not only allowed us to teach writers, but it has honed my personal skills as well.
Tell us about Cindy Sproles.
I’m a mountain gal, born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains where life is simple, words have a deep southern drawl, and colloquialisms like, “well slap my knee and call me corn pone” seem to take precedence over proper speech. Apple Butter, coal mining, the river, pink sunrises and golden sunsets help you settle into a porch swing and relax. Family, the love of God and strong morals are embedded into my life in the mountains. Teaching writers, spinning fiction tales about life in the mountains, history and down home ideas find their way into all I do. I love to write devotions, to seek after the deeper side of Christ and to share the lessons He teaches me from life in the hills of East Tennessee. I am a writer. A speaker. A lover of God’s Word and friend to all.
Thank you for visiting us today Cindy.
