Coffee with the Authors: Inspirational Writers Read







Our first Coffee with the Authors: Inspirational Writers Read at Brewd—A Coffee Lounge in Tucson, AZ was a success!

On Thursday evening, July 12, award-winning inspirational writers Janis Van Keuren, Lori Conser, Andrea Arthur Owan, Bee Bloeser, and newly-released book author, David Collis, shared their stories of faith, miracles, searching for God and answers to prayer.

I shared the story about the nurse who gave me such comfort at my son Cory's chaotic birth. It's the story that Cecil Murphey included in his anthology Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware, published by Guideposts. They also used the story on their web landing page. Read "An Angel in Scrubs" here!




Inspiring stories moved the listeners and connected them with the readers!


It was a wonderful evening of fellowship and great food in an intimate setting. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with many saying they couldn’t wait until the next Read. We experienced the truth that well-told stories have the power to move, change and connect us. It was an amazing night!

And many, MANY thanks to Kate and Phil Preble—owners of Brewd—who welcomed us and provided the delicious drinks and eats we enjoyed!


Join Us for the Next One!

We’re planning to make this a quarterly event, so if you’re located in Tucson, and interested in attending as either an inspirational, faith-based writer sharing your story or just an audience member who likes to hear good, inspiring stories that draw you closer to God, drop me a note at LinkedIn or go to my author website (andreaarthurowan.com) "Events and Speaking Engagements" page at http://andreaarthurowan.com/events-and-speaking-engagements/

Meditation Mondays Is On!






Well, after another several hours of backend work and tech chatting, the new site is up and running! It's still a bit out of sync, menu-wise, but if you want to leave a comment on the post, please click on the "Blog" to leave a comment. You won't find the actual blog on that page (it's on the first page), but you can leave a comment for me!

Go to: andreaarthurowan.com

Happy meditating!

Hi everyone!

Well, we had a major breakdown on Saturday with the administration part of my new site and blog. While the new post has been written and scheduled, it may not show up due to the login snafu. It took several hours with a handful of tech geeks to get that straightened out, and then we were celebrating Easter yesterday.

Sooo, while the website has been secured, it will probably still show it as in the building stage. You can go to andreaarthurowan.com to take a look. I will check at Noon Pacific Time in the U.S. to see if it has gone live. If not, then I will post it here so we can at least get started on this new journey together.

That way we won't miss a day!

While technology is wonderful, sometimes it makes you want to pull your hair out!

Hope you had a wonderful Resurrection Day and are still rejoicing in the promises it holds for us.

Blessings to you!

Andrea

New Beginnings: Living Balanced!





            
            Is your day-to-day life out of balance?

            Has your spiritual life grown stale?
           
            Would you like your emotional life to be better?

            Have you given up on ever being as physically fit as you can be? (Or does being physically fit seem like one big sucking black hole to you?)





           
            I know my personal answer to most of those questions is a resounding “Yes!” And I've determined that I am going to be determined—and intentional—about making sure that I’m in the constant pursuit of living life better, all of the way around. Better balanced. And I’d love to have you join me!

            In our harried, social-media-saturated world, it's difficult to know just what you should know and what you can pass on, and what is really going to add years to your life and life to your years. If we're honest with ourselves, we need to get honest about how we're living life. We need to wade through the junk, hone in on the important, and discard the waste. But just how do you do that?





         
            In my new blog and author website being unveiled April 2, you’ll get insight on:

~ Starting or deepening your spiritual life.
~ Learning the ins and outs of proper, safe exercise and dieting.
~ How to improve and strengthen your emotional health.
~ and MORE!

           
            You’ll get inside health and fitness tips I’ve given to recreational, college, professional and Olympic athletes.
           
            You’ll get pointed in the right direction to well-respected resources you can use to have a healthier, fitter life—physically and emotionally. (And get updated on the latest research, which I’ll break down to make it easy to understand.)
           
            You’ll receive spiritual guidance and support to deepen your faith and keep you striving toward the ultimate prize.
           
            And all of these tips will be given in snack-sized increments to keep you balanced without being—or feeling—overwhelmed!




AS A WRITER—
            I love helping people tell their stories, for themselves, their families and others who might be encouraged by them.


AS A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL—
            I’m passionate about helping you be as healthy and as physically fit as you can possibly be at any age.


AS A CHAPLAIN—
            I want you to know that there is a God who loves you deeply, wants to have an eternal relationship with you, and desires that you live the most balanced and prosperous life that you possibly can, right now.

           
            Together we’ll share our stories and encourage one another to live better lives–emotionally, physically, and spiritually!

             
            Join me for Meditation Mondays, where we’ll explore spirituality, you’ll deepen your faith, and learn how to live a spiritually energized life!
           
            Then we’ll have fun together on Workout Wednesdays as we go through the basics (and sometimes complexities) of good health and how to structure a fitness program that works for you!

            (I haven't come up with a catchy name for what we'll be doing Friday, but we'll have one!)


            Combining these three critical components of living will help you have the most balanced life possible.
           
            I can’t wait for us to get started together!




Until next week, contemplate this special week leading up to our commemoration of the greatest sacrifice and miracle the world has ever known—the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ!







Blessings,

Andrea
May you prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 2).

Are You Searching for Emotional, Physical and Spiritual Balance?

         





Do you ever feel unbalanced, as though you just can't get life right? Do your frustrations and self-doubts sabotage you?

         Do you even know how to arrange all of life's puzzle pieces to get started toward taking a happy, fulfilling life victory lap?

        
         If you want to live a more balanced life—emotionally, physically and spiritually—join me next month and begin this journey of living the balanced life you know you need. You'll learn, grow, and change. 

         We'll take it one step at a time, with snack-sized information you can put into practice immediately. You'll be able to better resist the resistance that holds you back and you'll be able to bounce back from failure more quickly and effectively. You'll have more satisfaction from life and experience less failure.

         And, most important, you'll have support and encouragement along the way as you learn how to enjoy life more.

         
         We'll start this journey together March 26. Keep watching this blog for more details as the launch date gets closer.

          I can't wait for you to join me! 





Blessings,


Andrea
