Judy served as a women’s ministry leader before joining Moody Publishers as an acquiring editor for the women’s line of books and discipleship resources. A wonder seeker who chases knowledge of God and His Word, Judy is passionate about discipling women and making God’s Word come alive in everyday life. She seeks to publish books and Bible studies that will inspire and equip women to go deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ and to disciple women in community. Judy has loved the power of storytelling as far back as she can remember when she'd pretend to write stories before she knew how to write her name. Judy and her husband, Rick, have been married 33 years and love their empty-nest years in the Colorado mountains. They have two married daughters; one in Kansas City, and the other in Minnesota, which is too far away from their first grandbaby. Visit Judy's blog at judydunagan.com.
Judy will be teaching one breakout session, and taking 15-minute appointments.
The Pursuit – Seeking HIS Purpose for Your Writing & Speaking Ministry – Judy Dunagan
Discover how your passion for writing and speaking can become an act of worship. We will dive into Hebrews 12 and focus on the importance of pursuing HIS purpose for your writing and speaking ministry. It should be all about Him and not about us. And, we will also look at what it means to surrender the dream to get published, while still pursuing that dream. Judy will share why she is seeking proposals for books that teach deep biblical truths in creative and fresh ways. And she will provide practical tools for making those truths and His Word come alive in your writing and teaching.
Moody Publishers – Judy Dunagan – Acquisitions Editor
The vision of Moody Publishers is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and a biblical worldview. Our mission is to educate and edify the Christian and to evangelize the non-Christian. Judy acquires non-fiction books for the women’s line of books at Moody. She is looking to acquire more books and Bible studies that focus on discipling women and inspiring them to go deeper in their walk with Him. She’d love to see proposals with themes related to growing a deep prayer life and a greater love for the Word, a passion for revival, and God redemption stories. Her target reader is typically between the ages of 30-55, but she also loves seeing proposals geared to millennials. She also welcomes proposals focused on marriage or parenting.
