A Little About Us...

The members of the Christian Editing and Design Family come from a variety of denominations and backgrounds, but all are part of the Church, the family of believers in Jesus Christ.

While we may differ in some of our traditions and thoughts, we all believe in the foundational truths of the Christian faith. Those beliefs are briefly described below. In our services, we are committed to being true to these beliefs and our core values in the way we work together, in the way we serve our clients, and in our criteria for accepting projects from prospective clients. Our goal is to have this kind of relationship with one another and with our clients:

Is there any such thing as Christians cheering each other up? Do you love me enough to want to help me? Does it mean anything to you that we are brothers in the Lord, sharing the same Spirit? Are your hearts tender and sympathetic at all? Then make me truly happy by loving each other and agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, working together with one heart and mind and purpose. (Philippians 2:1–2 TLB)

Here's What We Believe:

  • That the Holy Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God and the final authority for truth (2 Timothy 3:16–17; Proverbs 30:5–6).
  • That there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
  • In the deity of Christ (John 1:1), in His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18–25), and in His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15).
  • That all have sinned and need God’s forgiveness; that sin separates us from God (Romans 3:23).
  • That Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins (Romans 5:8–11). That He rose bodily from the dead on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3–8). That He ascended to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19). That He will return as conquering King (Acts 1:11; Matthew 24:30–31; Revelation 19:11–21).
  • That the only way to be saved from our sins is to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (Titus 3:4–5; Romans 3:22–25; John 14:6). That through Him we receive everlasting life in heaven (1 John 4:9–10).

Our Core Values:







Highly Recommended

I have never in my life worked with a nicer, kinder, and [more] experienced group of people as I did with Christian Editing & Design. From the editing team of Jen Miller, Karen Weigand, and Bethany Clark; to cover designer Sandy Armstrong; to interior design[er] Shannon Herring; and to Celia Horst in marketing, I was treated with respect and I was bathed in prayer. Every step of the book process was completed by highly professional people. I would never hesitate to use them again and I recommend them to any future writers who want a job well done for a reasonable price.

CED Really Cares

My experience was incredible. I couldn't and wouldn't have written a book without the help of Christian Editing and Design. CED really cares about helping people. They walk you through the process and explain everything really well. The staff [were] very encouraging to me and were very Christ-like in all their phone calls, emails and texts. I will continue to recommend CED to those who are wanting to write a book.

Very Happy with CED

I am very happy with working with you. I like how you are developing relations with me. You work with me, get to know my style and voice, and I am finding a good rhythm and pace with you.

A+++ Dependability, Integrity, and Excellence

Christian Editing and Design gets an A+++ for dependability, integrity, and excellence. The entire staff truly lives up to the name “Christian.” My book is a reality because of Shannon Herring. She went far beyond her job description to work with this struggling first-time writer. Her artwork is more than mere human talent. She has a special gift from the Lord that blesses my spirit every time I look at the book.

Made My Day, Month and Year

Thank you so much Christian Editing and Design! You have made my day, month and year! You are all such a great team. Thanks so much to Kim Merritt, who so beautifully illustrated my book and more; to Dixie Phillips, whose editing made the text flow so much better; and to Shannon Evans Herring, whose formatting has pulled it all together into a picture book. Ladies, you have been wonderful to work with—I highly recommend this company.

A Very Positive Experience

I enjoyed working with Bethany and Jonathan. This was my first experience with a professional editing company, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was a very positive experience!

Wonderful and Encouraging

They were all wonderful and very encouraging to work with, showing concern, encouraging, and willing to explain and teach about the book writing process! I loved their personal touches of calling, FaceTime, and willingness to explain and help walk me through the journey.
