As a Christian …moreThe term "writer's block" always seems an odd way to describe what feels like being hollow for me. I don't feel blocked. I feel empty. As a Christian writer, this immediately tells me I've been going about my business without communing with God. Conversation between us fills me with joy, which is word-provoking.

I also know I am greatly in need of going outside, looking at God's nature, and talking to him about it. In the general revelation of a beautiful landscape or an azure sky filled with puffy white clouds, God fills me up. No longer hollow, I seek to write of my encounter.

Often a walk is what I need, or a drive, or a complete change of routine. I head out, talking to God as I go. My faith is a significant part of my writing, so most of my "writer's block" remedies are centered around Jesus. (less)

I'll have to say that the best thing about being a writer is the joy of penning the stories that run around in my head and fill my heart. I was created to do this. The story has been the shaping tool of my life from earliest childhood in a storytelling family in Oklahoma and Kansas, to learning to read at age 3, to staying up to read novels into the wee hours as a grand schooler. Stories shaped me. I enjoy writing more than anything else I can think of on this green earth. (less)

Not a Tame Lion

A short series on Romans 8 – 11. Part 1.

“One day you’ll see him and another you won’t. It’s quite all right. He’ll often drop in. Only you mustn’t press him. He’s wild, you know. Not like a tame lion.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. With whip in hand, the same Man who offered up his life for us, first threw out the moneychangers who ro

“To expose our hearts to truth and consistently refuse or neglect to obey the impulses it arouses is to stymie the motions of life within us and, if persisted in, to grieve the Holy Spirit into silence.”

“Do you not know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud the Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?”
