Annual Shoe Contest on Writing By Faith Blog

For the last 3 years, the group blog I post on each Sunday with Angela Breidenbach, Jennifer Hudson Taylor, Lindi Peterson, Missy Tippens, and Mindy Obenhaus has sponsored a contest following the ACFW Conference. To win a free gift, all the reader of our blog needs to do is guess which shoe belongs to which FAITH girl. But this year, we've shaken the contest up a bit....

You see, FAITH girl Lindi wasn't able to attend conference this year, so there are only 5 FAITH girls in the shot, but there are 8, yes EIGHT, shoes in the photo. The other 3 shoes belong to literary agents. It's your job to guess which one. So jump on over to the Writing by Faith blog to throw in your guess and for a chance to win the free gifts from each FAITH girl. We'll post clues every day this upcoming week, so you'll need to check back with us to figure it out and win the prize.

Good luck!!! F. A. I. T. H. Following.Always.Intently.Trusting.Him.: Annual Shoe Contest!

Ted Dekker is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels. He is best known for stories which could be broadly described as suspense thrillers with major twists and unforgettable characters, though he has also made a name for himself among fantasy fans.

His later novels are a mix of mainstream novels such as Adam, Thr3e, Skin, Obsessed and BoneMan’s Daughters, and fantasy thrillers that metaphorically explore faith. Best known among these is his Circle Series: Green, Black, Red, White and The Paradise Books: Showdown, Saint, and Sinner.



Dekker was born to missionaries who lived among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. Because his parents’ work often included extended periods of tim…
