“Jody is a warm, caring, and knowledgeable guide for writers at every stage.” ~ Emily Sue Allen, founder of KindredMom.com
“Jody is so much more than an editor, though she is that, too. She reads carefully and responds thoughtfully. But just as helpful as her ideas for improvement are her encouragement, her excitement, and her I’m-for-you attitude, all of which makes her thoughtful critique a sweet pill to swallow.” –Kimberlee Conway Ireton, author of Cracking Up: A PostPartum Faith Crisis (Mason/Lewis Press, 2013) and The Circle of Seasons: Meeting God in the Church Year .
“Jody was great help at editing the chapters of my women’s Bible study. Her sharp attention to details, tempered with gentleness, helped me to see and correct errors in my writing. Her suggestions overall expanded the marketability of my project. Her input left me feeling confident as a writer. My previous experiences with other editors left me feeling beat down and insecure. Jody edits with a clear eye and a loving heart.” –Laura Smedley, Author of ‘Desert Blooms–Finding God in the Season of Waiting.” Laura blogs at journey girl and works as a certified Life Coach.
“As a proofreader, Jody provides such a gift of confidence. I know that when I incorporate her corrections into my writing that my tenses and punctuation will always be solid and appropriate. As an editor, Jody is a partner. Her keenly insightful suggestions help me hone my message and give me that all important reader’s point of view. I simply do not want to publish a word without knowing it has passed under her watchful and gracious eye.” -Dana Buck, Author & Podcaster of Sew Powerful Parables. Former World Vision staff and current Board Member for Sew Powerful Ministries.
“Jody Collins provided excellent service in working with our new writers to edit and rewrite articles and blogs for our magazine and website. She is an excellent editor and was able to complete each piece in a timely manner. It was remarkable to see the improvement in articles that she worked on. Several of the writers reported learning a great deal from Jody in the process of working on their articles with her.” –Helen Steinkamp, Co-founder, Salt + Clay: Beautiful Purpose
