I love all the connections that come from Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA). Elaine Helms is another fellow AWSA member, and we met when I posted in the group about finding a prayer book. She writes prayer books, so we corresponded a bit, then I went and bought her book Prayer 101. It’s a great book! I was excited when I saw her name on the list for Christian Product Expo and quickly contacted her to line up an interview in person.
When you’re doing event interviews, it can get rather loud in the background, and I’m afraid the people standing off to the side got a little loud, but listening closely so you can hear all that Evelyn has to say. She is truly a prayer warrior who’s worked with the Billy Graham crusade and North American Mission Board. She was also mentored by Evelyn Christenson, one of my favorite authors, another prayer warrior.
