The Purpose
Planting Roots has a vision that all military women and wives would be deeply rooted in Christ. We desire to do this through live events, community, and Bible-based resources. Our website, and blog in particular, are a very tangible way of doing this.

The Plan
We are looking for military women and wives who have a love for Christ, a desire to connect, are personable, and would like to share their personal experiences and Christian walk through writing. All writers must agree with the Planting Roots Statement of Faith.

Submissions can cover a variety of military-related and/or faith-based topics. Our theme for 2020 is GROWING TOGETHER as we focus on Hebrews 10:24-25. For 2020, we will have monthly topics, but all blog posts do not have to fall within these topics. Topics are listed below.

 January – Growing Together Matters
 February – Growing Together with Friends
 March – Growing Together with Generational Wisdom
 April – Growing Together Through Spiritual Growth
 May – Growing Together in Prayer
 June – Growing Together in God’s Word

 July – Growing Together Through Accountability
 August – Growing Together in Ministry
 September – Growing Together in a Local Chapel/Church
 October – Growing Together to Spread the Gospel
 November – Growing Together for Revival
 December – Growing Together to Impact the World

All submissions must be between 300 and 800 words. They must be original submissions (not posted on another website or blog) that will be the property of the author for future publication, but cannot be republished on another blog or website for at least thirty days after posting at Planting Roots. All graphics submitted must be taken or created by you, the author, personally or the rights must have been attained by you with proper photo credit. No links that promote your employer or business may be embedded in the body of the submission. You may submit a one to three sentence bio, picture of yourself, and link to the author’s personal blog or website to be posted at the end of the article.

The Process
Submissions may be emailed as an attachment (Word document) or copied into the body of the email. Send the email to blog@plantingroots.net. Please include bio, a picture of you, and any suggested graphics when submitting the article. The Planting Roots Staff reserves the right to modify the graphics to match our branding. We will confirm receipt within 48 hours of receiving and let you know within a week regarding acceptance for posting. Realize that we may check grammar or may make other minor alterations, but your submission must be ready for posting when you submit it.

Planting Roots does not pay for posted articles. All submissions are voluntary.

The People
Planting Roots loves to hear from military women and wives. We cannot wait to see what God lays on your heart to submit for our blog. We enjoy connecting women and reaching out to them with encouragement and biblical foundation so they may grow in their walk with Christ. Also remember we may have some women reading our blog who may not know Christ as Savior. Our prayer is to reach them as well.

Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a part of the Planting Roots ministry. We cannot wait to see how God brings us together and uses us all to further His Kingdom.
