Show Notes:08. Mary DeMuth — Finding Your Writing Voice: Staying Hopeful

In today’s podcast, I had the privilege of speaking with Mary Demuth. If you are new to Christian writing, it won’t take you long to come across Mary’s work. She is a prolific writer with a heart to help mentor new writers.

Mary has been a missionary church planter and also hosts two podcasts. You can find all her resources at marydemuth.com.


We spent time in our conversation discussing voice. I think its one of the first challenges writers face. How do you discover your voice? How do you trust your voice? How do you learn to use it? Mary gives honest and encouraging advice about embracing who you are as a writer.

“Most writers struggle to unearth voice — not only because one’s own voice is simply too familiar, but also because to speak from your voice means confronting your world, your dreams, and your entire life raw and unsoftened by explanations.” — Thaisa Frank and Dorothy Wall

  • It is a good year for our apple trees and this girl who loves to eat them.
  • Grateful for the chance to be on set with the 700 club. The video will play throughout the day and should be online this afternoon.
  • Thirteen years ago Ashley and I got married in this chapel. Last night Charlotte had her first voice recital on the same stage. She was the youngest performer. She sang about how time with God casts fear away. Made this dad very very proud.
  • Next Friday, I'll be talking The 5 Masculine Instincts live on The 700 Club with Andrew Knox. Looking forward to it.
  • So it begins.
  • Fair Life. You haven’t completed summer in the Ozarks until you’ve been to the Ozark Empire Fair.
  • Great day sailing.
  • New strings, new neck adjustments, and same old mediocre talent… my kids are still just young enough to think I’m good and my 90’s country is cool.
  • We came, we ate, we lost. #rallyhat
