1. Include real-life examples to demonstrate the biblical principles being described;
2. Use videos, photos, charts, screenshots, and other visually- or aurally-stimulating content;
3. Provide detailed instruction or specific recommendations that will facilitate our readers incorporating your advice into their lives or more fully understanding biblical principles.
