Writing for The Supreme Editor

"My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
my tongue is the pen of a ready writer."
~ Psalm 45:1

In real time you can usually find me in my writing studio. It is in my home which I call "Eagle Summit" in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia pictured above.

I'm Leona Choy and I'm passionate about sharing my experience of creative writing with YOU.

Whether you're an aspiring Christian writer or an already published author, young or a late bloomer in your 70's or above, it's never too early or too late to pursue your writing dreams. I'm here for you.

I've had decades of editorial writing, teaching writers' workshops, conference presenting, publishing and radio broadcast production.

I've written, collaborated, ghosted, edited and published more than 45 books through both royalty publishers and indie self-publishing.

It didn't happen overnight! I was in my mid-twenties, exhausted, with three toddlers in tow returning from the mission field when I experienced the sweat and thrill of seeing my first piece of writing published in a giveaway Sunday School paper. No payment, but oh, how sweet to see my byline! Read the whole story in ABOUT LEONA.

I knew God was calling me to write for Him. A long road lay ahead. For the past 26 years I've been Executive Director of Golden Morning Publishing, our indie ministry. We've produced close to 30 books, my own and also those of other authors. As your cheerleader-coach, I'd love to share YOUR sweat and thrill to see you become published.

THERE'S MORE! Writers can arrange for a free “Jump Start” consultation with me by email to explore your goals. For in-depth personalized assistance, I offer what I call “Stage Coaching” to work with you to reach the next level in your writing.

I feel a special connection with my many readers. I'm eager to tell you the back-stories of how and why I've written each book. I always have more than one book in process. On this site I'm giving you exclusive sneak-peeks of what's next on my publishing schedule.

Your Voice Matters

5/15/2021 3:53:00 PM BY Leona Choy

Here's some insider intercessory intelligence. What if I can guarantee you that your voice matters? Through your speaking out, taking a stand for the truth, focused prayers, writing encouragement, and sending personal applause and support to God's Kingdom people serving righteously in high places, your influence can be highly influential.

If you haven’t noticed that our nation is accelerating down the slippery slope to lose all the freedoms of its citizenry, you’re not paying attention. But is there any good news, or is it too late to rescue our sinking Constitution ship of state? Are there any Christian brothers and sisters on Capitol Hill fighting for truth on the political front lines of our country?

“There are Kingdom believers working in Congress right now for the sole purpose of stopping aggressive abortion legislation. There are Kingdom believers in the media right now held back in their careers because they refuse to repeat the lies handed to them by their corporate bosses. There are unsaved people in the federal government mulling over new regulations that could help or destroy much of our nation.

“Did you know there is a group of intelligent, educated, young women working all throughout the DC “swamp” who have begun a time of fasting and prayer? They named their effort the “21 Wailing Women.” They have committed to pray together for 21 days, each of them fasting one of those days. From Capitol Hill to government contractors and more there are people who occupy positions of serious influence and sway in our nation.” They need our support to keep up the struggle.

If we aren't in a position to join them, we can still pray for them by name and face whether or not we ever met them. How? As we view their faces on TV news shows, we are virtually meeting them. Our Omniscient God knows exactly for whom we are praying.

In answer to questions from viewers of what the ordinary person can do after seeing some disturbing news involving people on both sides of an issue or some tragic breaking news, the producers of the shows often flash on the screen the email addresses or websites or sometimes phone numbers for contact. Intercessors for America Newsletter regularly publishes ways for us to reach individuals in Congress and Senate Federally, for our state, even local administration.

You have a voice. Use it to pray, speak up, or write it. So far we still have at least limited freedom of speech. If you know the name and position of the person in government you want to speak/write to but no contact is provided, your friendly Internet search engine is of great help to reach them. Be sure your letter of encouragement or word of wisdom is offered courteously without judgment.

Will the person in public office actually read your words? Pray, make the effort and leave it to God. Someone will open your letter initially and read it. Your mission of obedience is accomplished. After that, it is in God's hands wherever it lands.

“Let us be a people that rises up, that labors in prayer, that answers the call to battle when our nation needs it most. These are the moments where the call as an intercessor is tested, when distraction and weariness threaten to pull us away from our [prophetic] calling.”

“Prophetic?” Not in the sense of forecasting the future but in the New Testament biblical sense of 1 Corinthians 14:3 (MEV) “But he who prophesies speaks to men for their edification and exhortation and comfort.” Your “prophetic” communication must fit into one or more of these three categories to accomplish what God desires.

“Pray that God’s people and His Kingdom will influence all seven mountains of our nation: Education, Government, Media, Family, Entertainment, Church and Business.” You can do that by encouraging Kingdom believers in each of those fields. Hold up their hands if they are weary in the battle.

We can be of greater help to the Kingdom of God with our prayers and written words of encouragement and support than by complaining how bad things are or how wicked the people whom we see on TV. “Keep a watch over our lips, O Lord.”
