Do you have an inspirational article you’d love to share with our readers?

We are always looking for true, inspiring, motivational or challenging articles that encourage believers to discover who they are in Jesus Christ, live out their faith, and be salt and light to the world they inhabit.

Submission Guidelines:

Please see our monthly theme list below and write your submission based on the theme of the month you’d like to be published. Note which theme you’ve chosen in the body of your e-mail and in the header of your article.

Please limit your submission to 750 words per post.


Please use 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Double space your article. Attach your Word doc to your e-mail. Please include a header in your document with your name, the name of your story, your e-mail address, your word count, and the theme that you’re submitting it for.

Please include your 50-word bio in the body of your submission and in the body of your e-mail query.

Before you submit, please ask yourself the following questions about your submission:

How is this going to change the reader’s life? OR How is it going to make the reader uncomfortable enough that they will do something about it?

Please Note:

Inspire a Fire is a place for readers to be inspired, encouraged and thoroughly equipped for every good work. In our writing we want to convince, rebuke (in love), exhort and teach (through the Word of God and godly experiences). We want to treat others the way that we want to be treated: with love and respect.

We do not want to discourage, dishonor, disrespect or damage anyone. This isn’t the place for anger and bitterness and hate.

Some of our themes are touchy and we need to be sensitive of the hearts and minds and – yes – feelings of others. Please be aware of this when you are writing your submissions. I will not accept any that don’t respect the vision of this site.

Our mission at Inspire a Fire is to provide authors with a platform-building writing opportunity. Although we are unable to provide monetary compensation, we do wish to promote you with an author bio, photo and links to your website or blog, Facebook page, Twitter account or any other Christian site or social network you’d like us to link you to. Please include a small .jpeg photo of yourself, a short bio (50 words), and the top three links you’d like us to feature. Thank you!

Please send submissions to Cindy Sproles, Senior Editor at:

Please allow at least 3 months for a response.
