Be strong and courageous, and do the
work. Do not be afraid of discouraged,
for the Lord God, my God, is with you.
He will not fail you or forsake you.
1 Chronicles 28:20
About Liz Ciccone and Soul Conversations
Liz Ciccone, award-winning Minnesota writer and the founder of Soul Conversations, follows the motto of her favorite cartoon character Maxine with respect to her faith: "Live our lives in Christ in such
a way, that when our feet hit the floor in the morning
the devil shudders and says, "Oh, crap! THEY'RE AWAKE!"
Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word
of Christ. Hebrews 11:11
A lesson founder and publisher of Soul Conversations Liz Ciccone learned in her
youth. Liz didn't grow up in a household of faith, but instead of unbelief. Sunday
school was her only way of connecting to God. Her lack of positive influence in her
young life, left her to wander for years searching for her place with God.
Along the way, she strayed away from God and into the occult and divination. She
was losing her connection to God, losing her way and herself
As she fell deeper into the occult and divination, her loved ones looked the other way.
It wasn't until her mid thirties that her friend, Alan Banitt, a born-again Christian,
stepped up to guide her back on God's path.
With his guidance and persistence, she found her way back to her Father.
The lesson she came away with?
"We need to surround ourselves with wise, Godly counsel and listen with
discernment. We need to engage in Soul Conversations with God and
with each other."
That was the beginning of Soul Conversations at its founding, and
Soul Conversations continues to spread it's testimony and faith believing
in Jesus Christ through its Christian prose fiction it publishes, while at the
same time encouraging those, wherever they may be to share their testimonies
of faith with others.
Soul Conversations continues its ministry work by bringing attention to the
persecuted church in restricted and hostile nations, whose people struggle to
hang on to their faith in the face of oppression and persecution in their countries
and communities. Hoping one day all of us can stand together as one heart, one
mind and one soul doing God's Work.
Liz Ciccone's writing stands in the company of such authors as Lebonese-American born philosopher and author Khalil Gibran and missionary/author Hannah Hurnard, the visual writers of their time.
