Everyday Inspirations Submissions

Everyday Inspriation

Call for Submissions
Everyone has had experiences that may have seemed mundane but, in reality, were life changing for them.
We want to share those stories.
Covenant Communications is looking for essay submissions for a new series: Everyday Inspirations.
Each book in the series will be a collection of Christian-based stories focused on a different topic, as follows:

Everyday Answers:
How has God answered your prayers? Is there a specific answer to prayer that has significantly changed your life? Answers to prayer come in all shapes and sizes, and we want to hear your story and how God has helped you.
Deadline for submission: July 3, 2023

Everyday Mothers: A mother is someone who loves, nurtures, and protects her children. Mothers are miracles embodied, and we want to hear miraculous moments you have had with your mother—moments big or small. Or, have you ever needed a mother in a moment when, for whatever reason, your own mother wasn’t there? One definition of mother is “maternal tenderness or affection,” and that mothering and comfort can come from anyone, anywhere.
Women come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and personalities—and can come into your life exactly when you need them. What woman in your life had a mothering influence when you needed it?
We’d love to read that story! If you’d like to share it with us, your essay should be a Christian-based story focused on a woman who has been a mother or an angel in your life. This could be someone you have known all your life or someone you met only in a moment of need. We know there are so many small miracles to be shared, and we want your story.
Deadline for submission: August 4, 2023

Everyday Inspiration:
When have you experienced something born of inspiration? A time a thought came to your mind to reach out to a friend or to put the pieces of your invention together in a way you haven’t tried before or to walk outside just in time to help a complete stranger. Inspiration can strike at any moment. When has it struck you, and what was the result?
Deadline for submission: October 2, 2023
