About Twila


To some I'm known as Twila Belk, but to others I'm known as the Gotta Tell Somebody Gal. I love to talk, especially about my Lord. Whether I'm speaking, writing, or teaching, my desire is to offer hope and encouragement for people to get their eyes fixed on Almighty God.

I'm a Christian communicator with a goal of taking important truths and making them easy to understand. I enjoy laughing and promoting laughter, but even more than that, I'm passionate about helping people discover who God is and how big God is and proving that He can be trusted. I've got lots and lots of proof of God's faithfulness and goodness, and I just gotta tell somebody!

Since June of 2007, I've worked with veteran author Cecil (Cec) Murphey as his executive assistant, scheduler, promoter, PR person, events coordinator, and biggest fan. Cec is a NY Times best-selling author and international speaker. He's written more than 140 published books, including the best sellers 90 Minutes in Heaven (with Don Piper) and Gifted Hands (with Dr. Ben Carson). What joy it is to partner with him in a profession and ministry that brings help and inspiration to countless people around the world!

As Cec transitions into retirement, I am transitioning as well into the role of The Writer's Champion. I'm now available to help writers and aspiring writers in their next steps through coaching, editing, and other services.

I have seven published books, and I've contributed to several others. My newest title is The Power to Be: Be Still, Be Grateful, Be Strong, Be Courageous, a 40-day devotional published with BroadStreet Publishing. In addition to speaking and writing, I enjoy teaching at writers' conferences across the nation. My mission is to do whatever I can to make God famous. That includes being a champion for others who have a message of hope and encouragement--one that points people to God. 

My background includes a broad variety of positions, from being a journeyman machinist and spec writer to owning a Christian bookstore and medical transcribing for a group of neurosurgeons. I can talk lathes and mills with you, or Bibles and books, or I can diagnose your need for brain surgery--the full spectrum!
