Yesterday I had the pleasure of interviewing Terri Blackstock for the Holy Worlds Podcast regarding her recent release of Downfall, the third and final book in her Intervention Series. I was touched by her humility and a little convicted. She encouraged me not to care how many people I write for, saying that she’d be satisfied if only twelve people read her books. For a NY Times best selling author to say that, is very impressive. I write because I love it, and feel like I have to, but sometimes the lure of fame and a full-time writing career sneak in and tell me that if I don’t achieve those goals then I’ll be a failure.
I was also touched by her story of her daughter’s massive drug addiction, and how that trial led to a series of books (Intervention Series) that has transformed many lives burdened by drug addiction. I wanted to share the link to the show because it’s a very encouraging story, but also because Terri is running a giveaway to help support charity. She is giving away a $500 Visa card to the winner, and another $500 for an addiction-based Christian ministry or church outreach of your choice!
