I’m drawing a line in the sand. It’s time to leave behind old, boring ideas of what Christianity is all about. It’s not sweet. It’s not prissy. And it’s certainly not boring. God is a relevant power in our lives, and yes, living His way can get messy. It can even get dangerous . . . to our pride, our arrogance, and our preconceived notions. But wouldn’t you rather live an exciting life connected to the source of all power in the universe than skulk in the shadows wondering how and why your life makes a difference?

In my writing, I try to demonstrate what that kind of dynamic Christian life looks like. My books are meant to be more than entertaining. They are meant to be life-changing. So if you want to come along, hold on. It’s going to be

If I…moreWell, I'm a Christian author so my ultimate goal in writing, art, or life is to leave behind a spiritual legacy rather than a materialistic one. If I can demonstrate the love of God to hurting people; if I can offer the comfort of God to grieving people; if I can share the salvation of God with seeking people then I'll be more than happy with the legacy I leave behind because ultimately, what I'll leave behind is hope for a better future. And that's a legacy anyone can leave behind whether they are a writer, an artist, or a plumber.(less)

I often review a tricky place in my writing while I'm walking and brainstorm possible outcomes or scenarios. Usually, by the time I'm back home, I've worked out what to do. If I'm being really smart, I'll bring a notebook with me so I can jot things down because I'm one of those writers who has to capture the writing as it forms in my head. Otherwise it's gone, and I can't get it back. The other thing that often works with writer's block is to go live life for awhile. If you want to write, you've got to fill the well.(less)
