Become A Contributor
Thank you so much for your interest in writing to join our team of Authors and Contributors at Empowerment Moments Blog (EMB), you’ve definitely come to the right place. If you have not yet done so, please visit our about here and allow our Founder and CEO, Yvonne I. Wilson to tell you what we are about and what we’re trying to accomplish through this online publication. After you’ve done that, please look over our contributors/writers guidelines below.
Life and Life Choices is just that and covers a gamut of everyday life issues from a God-centered lens : (relationships, marriage, family life, health, finance, success stories, culture, attitude, gratitude, happiness and more ) For example, if writing about finance, it will be good to show that while we need money to do most things in life, it is not everything; and we must be good stewards with what God has blessed us with.)
Faith – Our faith focused category is practical and intellectual, it is to motivate and give the reader a challenging, passion-stirring call to have a deeper relationship with God and by all means to place his/her entire trust in Him. It’s an opportunity to share a testimony of faith and to show the reader how God has come through for you. It includes any notice of widespread spiritual movement, from the church’s standpoint or on a global perspective
Prayer – this category is currently closed and managed exclusively and published by the Founder, Yvonne I. Wilson.
Bible/God/Empowering others through Christ – explores spiritual topics in different forms – spiritual disciplines, relationship with God, others and the church, short devotionals. It brings our readers current global Christian news…
Inspiration/Inspirational – is another category that covers a gamut of topics including but not limited to quotes on what others have to say about a specific subject, real life stories that brings hope and encouragement to the readers, impacting stories to empower and equip, to transform minds, to bring spiritual growth, to strengthen and change lives….
