Betty J. Slade
STEP INTO THE LIGHT TALK RADIO
Betty J Slade is a woman with purpose and tremendous energy. For the past seven years as vice president of the Wolf Creek Christian Writer’s Network, she led critique groups, arranged for two authors a month to speak, inspired us with scripture, and mentored and challenged us to grow in our craft. She writes a weekly column for our local newspaper and Elk Lake is about to publish her latest book, Taming Wild Hearts.
How to Write Flash Fiction was a most inspiring and fun exercise presented to our writers’ group. This new and exciting information leads me to try this style of writing.
I knew about Betty Slade years before I met her, as she was well-established in our creative community. When I finally met her, I was privileged to be able to participate in her small group, where I learned the basics of writing and forming a firm foundation for my craft. She is by far the most creative and disciplined person I have ever known, with a passion for Christ that sweeps you up and carries you along.

Betty brings the art of writing to life when she speaks. Her passion for the craft and helping other writers shines through. She is organized, prepared, and an engaging speaker. Betty provides practical help, compelling examples, and captivating stories. Listeners will come away motivated, inspired, and encouraged.
For many years I looked forward to reading Betty Slade’s column in our local newspaper every week. Her stories of family, friends and herself struck a familiar note with many readers. Somehow we met - maybe first time at a library function - and I mentioned my small efforts at writing devotionals with a personal story. She encouraged me to send some for the Matter of Faith column, which I did, and several were published. Several years ago she invited me to join a writing group she was starting. I declined, enough on my schedule, and not really sure how it all would work. Then came Covid. Our calendars were suddenly clearing and staying clear much longer than we expected. I started writing more, and decided in January 2022 to meet with the group. It has been a blessing. New friends, prompting new ideas, guest speakers every other week with their generous professional lessons, writing challenges and critique sessions within the group - it has been great.
Betty, your encouragement, ideas and support for everyone is appreciated and an inspiration.
Betty Slade is an experienced artist in every aspect of the word. No pun intended. She is so passionate and excited about the craft of writing that her contagious energy ignites me to be my best self. As a member of the WCCWN and working alongside her for the past few months, I can honestly say she is nothing but a joy to be around and a delight to work with. Her enthusiasm for God's word puts a fire under me to serve Him in my gifts to my best ability. I look forward to many more moments gleaning from her knowledge. Thank you, Betty, for being so generous with what God has given you. May your light shine so brightly on me that I, too, can shine for others.
