Bloom Where You’re Planted

“Like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.” Psalm 1:3

Have you bloomed yet?

Did you know you have a bud of creativity within you waiting to bloom?

Just as a bud needs nurturing, so does your creativity. Blue Lake Christian Writers Retreat is a place where that bud of writing is nurtured—it’s fed, watered or in human terms, inspired, encouraged and instructed.

What does a blossom have to do with fruit? All fruits come from flowers. Before there is a fruit, there must be a blossom. At Blue Lake, we want to help you blossom so you can produce the fruit of your writing.

God wants us to bear fruit and says so in the Bible.

“… walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” Colossians 1:10

“By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” John 15:8

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:16

Do you want to produce the fruit God has called you to through writing? Come to the Blue Lake Christian Writers Retreat and we’ll help you blossom!

Marilyn Turk, Director

“I’m so excited to offer a quality writers conference to fellow writers in southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle! While attending a retreat at Blue Lake, God impressed on my heart that Blue Lake was the perfect place for a writers retreat—one that would minister to the needs of writers in that region. His hand has been on this project from day one, gathering together a wonderful faculty from Christian publishing. I look forward to sharing this experience with you!”

Multi-published author Marilyn Turk calls herself a “literary archaeologist,” because she loves to discover stories hidden in history. Her World War II novel, The Gilded Curse, won a Silver Scroll award. When readers asked what happened to the characters after the book, Marilyn wrote the sequel, Shadowed by a Spy. Her four-book Coastal Lights Legacy series—Rebel Light, Revealing Light, Redeeming Light, and Rekindled Light—feature Florida lighthouse settings. In addition, Marilyn’s novella, The Wrong Survivor, is in the Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides collection. Marilyn has also written a book of devotions called Lighthouse Devotions, and she also writes for Daily Guideposts.

She is a regular contributor to the Heroes, Heroines and History blog, (https://www.hhhistory.com)

Marilyn lives in Florida with her husband Chuck and enjoys boating, fishing tennis and gardening when she’s not climbing lighthouses or playing with her grandsons.
