The writings address a range of topics including what writing means to the writers, seeking God, becoming free, empowerment, hope, purpose, aging, and social issues.
The selections often discuss serious and heartfelt topics, as the writers pour out the emotions and feelings that are inside of them. Even during their struggles, the writers focus on their underlying belief in God. Their belief that all things will work out for their good.
