Meeting Update: April 9, 2022

Our meeting on April 9th was a success even though a few members could not attend. We worked in our new “Writers in Residence” books by Debra Bell which were published by Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. and purchased from for an amazingly low price. These books may be going out of print, I don’t know for sure, but were offered at a great price for as long as they last. We are working in the beginning level book. Though the books teach things we have learned before, they have new tips and information as well. These books are great for reminding writers about the rules and for using as a resource.

We have worked through Module 1 and are beginning Module 2. We reviewed verbs and learned that using vigorous verbs make our writing more interesting by creating a word picture in the minds of our readers. In Module 2 we are looking at nouns. We are learning about general and specific nouns, common and proper nouns, and seeing how correct word choices can improve our writing. Though our writers are long out of school, some of these lessons were not emphasized when we attended school.

A few of our writers have published books and poetry. Three of our writers are presently working on books for future publication. There are a great many testimonies of God’s work in our lives to be told to our audience.

One of our writers participated in a contest held at our local library. Most of the writers who entered the contest were youth but a few adults competed as well. Our writer told me she was blessed to hear the written works of these young readers.

Our next meeting will be April 23, 2022 at the East Bonner County Library in Sandpoint, Idaho, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Anyone over age 16 who is interested in improving their writing is welcome to join us.

We are looking at the possibility of putting together a booth or table at the upcoming Christmas Fair this November. More discussion and research about this is needed before a decision can be made.

We are all praying for the situation between Russia and Ukraine. We are saddened by destruction and loss of lives. We are also praying for comfort for families who have lost their family members and homes.

Robin Ulbredtch



My name is Robin Ulbredtch. I am a born again Christian. God has called me to write and share His message, the good news about Jesus Christ, with others. God wants people everywhere to receive His free gifts of forgiveness, mercy, and salvation. God also wants a personal relationship with each person. He wants them to know about the forgiveness, love, healing and hope they can receive from Him. God alone has the answers for all of our problems. He alone can heal and restore broken hearts and lives. I know this because He has done it for me. I have written several testimonials of the things God has done in my life. These include stories of lessons I've learned in life, in Children's ministry, and in a number of other situations. I hope you will take time to enjoy reading some of them. You can find more of these writings on my websites:,, and I also have several stories on I am working to create websites that will provide information for Christian teachers and writers. God has truly taken my broken heart and life, healed me, and turned it all to His glory by allowing me to teach and minister His word to others who are hurting and hopeless. Only God can bring good out of the bad things in our lives, and He does it in a big way. My God--Yahweh--is a three in one God, God the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the word and son, Jesus Christ. My God is an AWESOME God! I hope you will read some of these stories and see the mighty works God has done for me. I pray you will open your hearts and minds to receive the free gifts of forgiveness and grace that God has for those who ask for His forgiveness of their sin and invite Him into their heart. I know God can heal and do miraculous works on our behalf because He has done it for me. God loves all people and He wants them to love Him back. Yet God allows us to make the choice because to try to force His love on someone is not love, and God's nature is love. God wants us to choose to love Him! My goal for the Christian writing ministry is to point people to Jesus Christ for the answers for their lives. He alone has the answers and the power to do the miraculous work to bring about healing, restoration, and solutions to to overwhelming challenges we face in life. He is the source of Life and gives eternal life to those who put their lives in His hands. Praise the Lord, Jesus Christ!
