Friend Of The Week – Renee Ann Smith

Renee Ann Smith

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Renee Ann Smith – an unsung, Christian super-woman of sorts. By day, Renee teaches literature and writing in a small Christian high school. By night, she writes inspirational fiction and shares book reviews, devotionals and stories about inspirational folks on her blog Doorkeeper!

Renee’s goal as a blogger is to “connect with lots of these door-opening, encouraging people” – to “share thoughts on how faith impacts daily life” and to talk about how “characters from great stories have opened many doors for me – chiefly the door to my heart!”

Renee’s passion and faithfulness to these goals is evident as you browse through her blog!

Renee is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and a winner of the 2011 Genesis Award and Daphne du Maurier Award for unpublished writers. You can sample her writing at Life In Small Places, a post where she blogs about the high school where she teaches.

Renee is a long-time friend of Create With Joy’s who was first featured at Friendship Friday. in May 2012.

Be sure to visit Renee this week – have fun exploring her blog, Doorkeeper – and be sure to congratulate her on being our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

    Hi R.! Once again we are in sync. on our Friday posts. I didn’t know that you would have a quote about “It is Never Too Late” while my post is titled, “It’s Never Too Late.” Maybe God is moving on this topic right now. God bless!
