Fade2Bold Blog Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in sharing your gifts and talents with us.

 

We consider it a privilege to partner with you in boldly sharing your truths. You don’t have to be an author or a theologian. All you need is an authentic, transparently truthful voice to share. We're here for the imperfect—those still growing, learning, and teachable. None of us have it all together but we strive to behold the Lord, our God, who does. Continue reading below for details.

01. QUALIFICATIONS

NONE. God doesn't call the qualified. He qualifies the called. Maybe you've backslidden and have found your way back to the throne of grace and want to share what you've learned in your experience? You may be a tired mama running on fumes but God has given you a formula to reset and refocus on Him and want to tell the other burned out mamas out there. Maybe you're navigating life as a caretaker? Maybe you've got a fashion tip to share with our sisters on how to be stylish and modest in attire? The topics are endless. If you are any of these God has equipped you with tools to help others in their journey. You don’t have to be an “author” to share your experiences or testimony. You just have to be willing and open to imparting your struggles, skills, and solutions with other like-minded believers. We welcome you to engage with our community, and give real jewels to our readers.
