Faith-filled Fiction

"So . . . you write faith-filled fiction. What does that mean, anyway?"

That is a great question! Simply put, my stories are not just stories. Yes, the characters will draw you into their lives. You will laugh, cheer, grieve, and cry with them. The storyline will entertain you.

An entertaining story reaches the imagination. A story that points your focus to God reaches your heart.

The lives of the characters and the struggles and joys they experience are meant to be an encouragement to you on a deeper level. All of us go through tough times. Our challenges are all unique. Sometimes the struggle is out where everyone sees it. Sometimes the struggle is deep within where no one knows.

When we endure hardships, some readers gravitate toward a nonfiction title about finding joy during trials. Others, like me, prefer to read a fictional account with characters we can relate to who are going through similar hardships. When the characters are able to find joy during troubled times because of their faith in the God Who loves them, we can be reminded anew of God's love for each of us individually.

Jesus Himself understood our need to connect to a story. When He was here on earth, He told story after story to explain heavenly truth we could never understand otherwise. Jesus' story is the greatest one of all, for the Son of God became a man to die on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin before a holy God. When He rose again (Easter, also known as Resurrection Sunday), He made a way for us to be forgiven and spend eternity with Him in heaven. The gift is free. All you have to do is ask. He is just waiting and desiring for you to choose Him.
