Welcome to The Writer's Inkhorn International, my name is Deborah Taylor. I am a wife, calligrapher, author, creative visionary, and co-founder of The Writer's Inkhorn International. I have a passion to write, crochet, read, and travel, but most importantly, I am a God-fearing believer. As a creative visionary, my world is governed by prophecy, the Word of God, the Father (Yahweh), the Son (Yeshuah) and the Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh).
My interest in hand lettering began in grade school. While learning cursive writing I became fascinated with beautiful handwriting. I recall trying to imitate writing styles that I found attractive. Two of those styles included my mom and dad, had the most elegant spenciarian penmanship. But, for some reason, I could never replicate it and, in all truthfulness, I "secretly" became flustered with my own lettering style, until others began complimenting my handwriting! After hearing this multiple times I stumbled across a calligraphy art kit and the rest was transforming.
As a creative visionary, prophecy, writing and art is part of my DNA. I love colors, pens, writing, crocheting, and co-creating with Holy Spirit to see my prophetic and artistic skills come to life. If you are here, God is calling you to align your creative and writing gifts with Holy Spirit to reach the nations for Yeshuah's sake. "Today, if you hear His voice harden not your heart" (Hebrews 3:15).
The journey of The Writer's Inkhorn International began in 2005. I sought a name for a calligraphy business. I wanted a good name. I sought names from others, but was not satisfied, so I prayed and began studying the word. I was led to read the book of Ezekiel and fell asleep in the eighth chapter. When I woke I started at the ninth chapter of Ezekiel. I sat up thinking I was still dreaming! My answer was in the word! The ninth chapter read:
Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.
Ezekiel nine contains a personal summons to the bronze altar. He is wooing His people to fulfill all that He has commanded. The mission at The Writer's Inkhorn has evolved over the years and each day we continue to learn the importance of allowing God to be THE WRITER and as He shapes us to be His INKHORN. Our passion is to help creative marketplace ministers develop their writing voice, lead significant and Kingdom-driven lives, and to prosper creatively.
