2-5 Jim Rubart

Oct 10, 2016Restory Show

Jim Rubart is a novelist and marketer that I’ve known toward the beginning of my publishing career. He’s in my mastermind group. Jim loves his wife and two boys, which is really what I think of when I think of him (and isn’t that the best way to be known?).

How Our Stories Intersected

Jim and I met at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference in the mid 2000s. Shortly after, he got an agent and a book contract for his first novel, Rooms. This year, his novel The Five Times I Met Myself won book of the year!

In this episode we talk a lot about the artist’s insecurity, and how accomplishment doesn’t fill that gaping hole–only a steadfast relationship with Jesus does that. We must settle our worth because publishing (or any other thing we may pursue) cannot validate our lives.

[Tweet “Publishing doesn’t validate your life. Hear from author @Jameslrubart on Restory Show.”]

As in all my episodes, I pray for you at the end. It’s my sincere hope that you’ll walk away from the Restory Show changed and challenged.
