Beth K. Vogt believes God’s best often waits behind the doors marked, “Never.” Beth won a 2016 Christy Award and a 2016 Carol Award for her novel Crazy Little Thing Called Love. She was also a 2015 RITA® finalist for her novel Somebody Like You. Beth continued her popular destination wedding series with You Can’t Hurry Love (May 2016) and Almost Like Being in Love (June 2016). Visit Beth at bethvogt.com.
During the next couple of years, God kept bringing an idea to mind—that of creating with Him versus being creative on her own. She realized creativity wasn’t something she did on her own but rather is something she does in relationship with him.
“For me, it was a gradual learning to rely on God,” Beth said. “He’s revealed to me that writing isn’t about getting a contract or getting an award. ... All that’s great, but I’ve learned this writing journey is about deepening my relationship with God. That’s how He uses it—to draw me closer to Him. He’s scraping all the gunk off me so I can reflect Him to the world.”
