Would you like to write a guest post for the Petals of Wisdom Devotions series?
The current theme for the Petals Of Wisdom series is Sweet Smelling Fruit: Cultivating a heart that lives by the spirit.
In this series we’ll be taking a closer look at the Fruits Of The Spirit.
Instead of covering them all in one series, I have decided to break them up and spend a few weeks on each of the nine Fruits of the Spirit. This will allow more time to focus on each one.
The next Fruit of the Spirit will be posted soon. Guest submissions will open back up at that time!

Do I have to follow the preferred writing template?
Please try to follow it to the best of your ability. As long as you use the template as a guide and hit all the points it should be fine.
What happens after I submit my devotion?
I will send you a welcome email a few days after you submit your devotion. The email will contain all of the important details you will need to know about your guest post, so you’ll want to make sure you save it. I will also let you know of any needed adjustments at this time.
Do I still own my work?
Yes, you still own your own work. But please keep in mind your devotion will be archived on the blog and available to readers on the web for the life of the blog. If an opportunity becomes available for you to post the devotion somewhere else, I ask that you please wait 90 days from the original post date and also disclose that your work appeared here first.
