Christian Authors Network’s “Speak Up” Competition Highlights Stories of Hope and Possibility

Every day, people all over the world are facing difficult challenges. But through the power of storytelling, we can find hope and encouragement to face whatever comes our way.

 

The 265 Point Christian Authors Network is proud to present their first annual “Speak Up” competition, which showcases stories of courage and resilience in the face of adversity. This year’s theme is “Expect the Impossible,” and it’s a reminder that no matter how dark our situations may look, we always have hope because we know that all things are possible with God!

 

This unique competition has three rounds to allow participants to showcase their skills in different areas:

 

  • Written
  • Audio
  • Live Video

 

After each round, fabulous prizes are awarded to keep participants motivated and focused. The grand prize winner will receive a luxurious stay in beautiful Colorado Springs to record a professional speaker reel.

 

Round one of the competition featured inspirational messages on various topics including grief, loss,  health, leadership, mindset, and more.  The heartfelt messages made it clear that the competition was about more than just winning prizes. It’s about using your voice to touch the lives of others and make a positive impact on the world.
