Why I Write Inspirational Fiction
I’m often asked why I write inspirational fiction. Because I’m a Christian, I know that “with Christ all things are possible.” Circumstances are merely miracles in the making, and true love really does exist!
God can take real people with real needs and real hurts and meet us right where we are. And in matters of the heart, our Heavenly Father longs to do just that.
We weren’t created to live a life of mediocrity. Through Jesus Christ, God’s son, we have the incredible opportunity to do more, have more, and be more than we ever dreamed possible.
Money, fame, and fortune are temporary. Their benefits are fleeting.
God’s word assures us, however, of this uncompromisable truth: “…And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV)
I pray that in your quest for love that you will first seek a relationship with Him (Romans 10:9), and second, you’ll share this gift with others. (Matthew 28:19)
