Our Story

We are so glad you found Arise Daily, a daily devotional created with you in mind.  It's our prayer that you find encouragement, inspiration and hope as you learn how to draw nearer to the God who loves you.


The Women Behind the Words


Best-selling author and popular speaker, Linda Evans Shepherd, serves as our Arise Daily Publisher while author and speaker Julie Coleman serves our our editor.  Amber Weigand-Buckley, who is also the editor or our Leading Hearts Magazine, also serves as our art director. 


The Arise Daily writers are members of the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA)  AWSA is a special fellowship of Christian women authors who encourage and train one another.  They are thrilled to have this opportunity to encourage you.  


Arise Daily, AWSA and Leading Hearts Magazine are under the umbrella of Right to the Heart, a 501 (c) 3 ministry.


Right to the Heart was founded by Linda Evans Shepherd in 1999 to educate and to spread the good news about Jesus.


AWSA was founded a year later to encourage, train, pray for and mentor the Christian women authors and speakers of the publishing world. 



If you are a Christian woman author and speaker, consider linking arms with the AWSA sisters.  Click HERE to get started.


If you are a Christian woman who feels as though God is calling you to publish and/or to speak, know that AWSAs have a special mentoring program just for you.  Please see:  AWSA Protege
