Inside MAI Blog: Thoughts on global publishing
A higher dream, by guest blogger Keila Ochoa Harris
Later on, I went to LittWorld, the wonderful event MAI organizes in which writers, editors, designers and more people involved with the publishing ministry, from every corner of the world, come together to learn and share. England, the Philippines, Brazil. Three LittWorlds of so much learning, networking and encouragement.
Today I’m a published author. The shy teenager is now a busy mother and wife, who writes novels and non-fiction for women. And I dream of seeing more Mexican writers today.
Will you join us in this adventure of encouraging more shy teenagers who are wondering how to serve God? They probably have many hidden dreams inside a drawer. MAI, above all, encourages us to open up and dream the higher dream: serving God through the written word.

Reason to Vote #4: MAI stimulates literature to equip the Church in places where it’s young and growing. In countries where the evangelical church has ballooned in size, Christians need articles and books to grow in their faith and as leaders. MAI equips publishers and writers to create materials that help believers apply biblical truth in every area of their lives.
