About SpiritLed Woman 

SpiritLed Woman Online, like its print counterpart, focuses on empowering and equipping women for the Spirit-led life. Three times a day, we post brief (300-800 word) articles, often pulling content from blogs. We're a nonpaying market but through our affiliate, Charisma Magazine, and our social media posts, we generate a large number of likes and reads. Come talk to Marti Pieper, editor, about expanding your platform by writing for SLW. 


Marti Pieper’s passion to read, write, and pray makes her life an adventure. In 2005, her involvement in a prayer project led her to assist Brent and Deanna Higgins as they told their son’s compelling story. The resulting memoir, I Would Die for You: One Student’s Story of Passion, Service, and Faith (Revell, 2008) became a young adult best-seller that is now a missions classic.

Today, Marti continues to use her gifts as author, collaborative writer (writing nonfiction books for others), editor (check out the “Editing” tab on her website) and conference speaker. Out of the Dust: Story of an Unlikely Missionary, the most recent of her eight nonfiction books, received AWSA’s Golden Scroll Nonfiction Merit Award.

Marti is wife to worship pastor Tom and mom to five young adults. Find Marti at or serving as chaplain at the FCWC. 

3-Hour Workshop Presented by Marti:

Writing Memoirs 

Do you have a life story the world needs to hear? Do you want to leave a legacy in print for family, friends, and beyond? In this workshop, Marti discusses the do’s and don’ts of this popular genre, including the importance of a narrative thread, how thinking small makes a big difference, and the mystery of marketability. Regardless of which publishing venue you choose or whether you write fiction or nonfiction, the skills learned in memoir-writing can enhance your work and help you tell your story in ways that touch the world.
