Writing has never been a strong suit, I remember in fourth grade having to write a book, hand written with illustrations, my nightmare. In college my professor told me that my writing was so bad I would make a terrible teacher. Reading is a little more enjoyable than writing, I like reading books before I see the film version of the story. I am a mother now and I do not want my son to face the…

    creative ways to prolong my stories. I am grateful to my parents for cheering me on in this way. I believe God has given me the gift of storytelling. Although I have written off and on over the years, I have been more committed to writing in the last year. I believe writing Christian fiction is the best way to tell the stories God has laid on my heart.

    Growing up I have always enjoyed writing, I view writing as the most effective way to tell your true feeling, because sometimes telling how you feel to someone that person can rebut or cut in to what you saying. Writing makes what you want to say come across exactly how you mean it and how you want it to come across In my current stage in life I do not like writing in any form not even texting. When I think about writing or have to do a writing assignment I get poignant memories and it just…
