A Passion for Writing Christ-rooted Stories
My Most Profound Passion
My most profound passion is Christ—knowing, loving, and living Him. My passion for Christ is the heart of my passion for story and informs my writing. The solid realities of my relationship with Him are the foundation stones of all of my stories. Are they preachy? Not at all! They are engaging stories rooted in the reality of who I am and how I view and assess the world around me.
Christ’s Great Passion Is My Passion
Christ’s great passion was to touch people’s lives with truth and to see lives changed for the good via restored relationship with God by faith. He had a heart for fallen mankind, a passion for their restoration that would take Him to Calvary…to die for them. Christ is the ultimate story!
In His passion for restoring mankind He not only preached sermons, such as the Sermon on the Mount and the Sermon on the Plain, but it appears that more often He told stories. Why stories? Because stories illustrate truth, and give it practical application that hits home in a way that discourse often does not.
