Okay, so maybe you don't have as much of a K-cup obsession as the FV team, but we thought a coffee house theme for bloggers would get the creative beans brewing.

I’m sitting in my writing cave in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A large whiteboard — four by six feet — hangs on the gray wall to my right. Reminders about how to not suck at writing are taped to the wall directly before me, just above the horizon of my computer screen. To my left sits a simple white desk with an H-shaped hutch. A gift from a student rests at eye level there, a beautiful paperweight inscribed with this quote:
How do you reach the world? Answer: One conversation at a time. One person at a time. One at a time. In our age of many to many communications, where social media postings can reach hundreds and thousands of people at a single click, we are reminded that while electronic gadgets and computing devices can do the technological connections, people flourish in smaller networks.
According to author Jim Stump, there is power in any one-on-one relationships. Whether we call it discipleship, mentoring, or plain individual conversations, Stump is convinced that meaningful relationships are best build one-on-one. For the transformation of the world begins with the transformation of individuals like you and I.
I first met Jen Pollock Michel at the Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College in April of last year. She had long, lustrous brown hair, and a tall, striking presence. (Jen is a regular contributor for Her.meneutics and a Wheaton College alum!) She talked about her forthcoming book, Teach Us To Want, with a humility and confidence that I could only describe as mature, thoughtful, and tempered.
Indeed, tempered by the storms of life. Jen’s debut book commences with the shadow of her sixteen-year old self. She details a life rearranged through the quietness of that still, small voice that broke into the tumultuous teenage years. Her luminous prose is at once understated, yet simultaneously simmering with emotion.
