This week I’m excited to host Quantrilla Ard for an interview on the importance of a foreword: looking at the past (or what came before) that led you to your calling as a writer.

Quanny also shares some wise and helpful encouragement for anyone who lacks confidence as a writer — you’re going to want to hear this!

Enjoy the interview!

If you have ever lacked confidence in your calling, your work as a writer, or the gifts you’ve been given, this conversation is for you.

Quanny shares a wealth of wisdom and encouragement in this interview.

No matter where you are in your writing journey, God has been writing your story from the very beginning, and He will continue to provide places and opportunities to use the gifts He has given you.

All we have to do is place our trust and confidence in Him, not our own abilities.


Quantrilla (affectionately known as Quanny), hails from the DC metropolitan area. A passionate creative at heart, she has answered the call to encourage women in all stages of life and of various backgrounds through empathy, transparency, and love.

Because she leads a full life as a wife, stay-at-home mom, doctoral student, and entrepreneur, Quanny often finds herself in the thick of problem solving at any given moment. Her spiritual goals and her love for Christ propel her quest to share her journey with other women- to walk alongside them and encourage them with words, deeds, and wisdom. Quanny believes in the power in collective strength, community and fellowship. You will find her wherever people are sharing stories of triumph.
