It’s a thrill to be writing!!
Starting a blog has been a goal of mine for a couple months, but as I’ve waited for the right time to start, I have also struggled for the words to begin. I have been writing since I was nine, an avid reader longing to find expression for all the words inside. It began with scribbling childish copies of the historical fiction I couldn’t get enough of. As I grew older, I found my niche in biblical fiction, inspired by the writings of Francine Rivers and Terri Fivash, and of course, the Bible, which has been my ultimate lifeline and remains the backdrop for the majority of my writing. Over a period of nine years, I was writing pretty consistently, finally getting a novel down on paper (working on editing the final stages.)
This past year or so, my writing has suffered a lull, a timeout while I began working more, got married, and then moved out of state with my husband. My goal for this blog is to provide myself with a small amount of accountability so that I can get back into the swing of writing regularly and hopefully encourage someone in the process. In addition, it is my hope that writing from my heart will increase my regular times with the Lord.
There is a new desire inside me for more of the Word, more of the Truth. There’s just no time for anything less. I am convinced that as we pray and dive deeper into the Word and the Lord’s Presence, God will give us understanding that we can share.
I am excited to see where this journey will lead, and anyone interested in coming along is more than welcome!
