Star Shining Forever

I'm a third of the way into the book and I'm wondering why Nicole is portraying "good" Christians as always quiet, gentle, meek and humble. Even witty replies are done by those "not fully doing God's will." In the Bible, people of God and Jesus Himself were radical, daring, firebrands. Elijah, David, the judges...

Nicole Great question! I do tend to stereotype my characters a bit, and readily admit I need to work on expanding the possibilities there.
In Hebbros, I imagined those "not fully doing God's will" as the ones unable to show a full faith in God by demonstrating a quiet/trusting strength. To ignore this fact in their hearts, they tend to attack a scenario rashly instead of rationally. I guess the opposite is true as well: When I know a character's faith is super strong, I tend to illustrate that through an evident "rest" in the way they face life. Especially in their harsh surroundings.
Again, great question! I hope this doesn't ruin the story for you in any way. I would greatly appreciate your prayers as I seek to improve my writing skills in every area!
