Award-winning writer, Jeanetta Chrystie, enjoys the process of writing: creating and tinkering, changing and polishing, publishing, and hearing from readers.

Her publishing credits include:

  • More than 800 articles in magazines, such as
    • Christian History
    • Discipleship Journal
    • 30+ in Mature Years
    • 30+ in Church Libraries
    • and Clubhouse magazine
  • More than 150 newspaper columns for the Northwest Christian Examiner/Times/Journal, plus a few for Word & Way
  • More than 85 newsletter articles for various writer’s and speaker’s groups
  • Various book and booklet contributions including Short Stories Too and NCWA's The Write Start
  • Two college computing textbooks
  • More than 50 poems
  • More than 100 devotions

When asked where the ideas for her writing originate, she replies, "Many writing ideas come during my personal quiet time and Bible study. I'm also an avid reader, so a statement or twist of phrase may trigger an idea. Sometimes I refer to my personal journals for ideas. My most urgent advice for beginners is to write and speak from an overflowing vessel, filled during ample time with God."




When teaching and speaking, Jeanetta uses a personal amplifier so people can hear her soft, post-cancer-surgery voice.
