To say I’ve been struggling with this blog would be an slight understatement. I don’t mind putting some thoughts down a couple times a week to share, but I’ve felt like I was meandering to nowhere.
And all the popular help from the greatest experts wasn’t overly helpful. Well, that’s not entirely fair. The more generic advice was tremendous, things like be consistent in timing and content. But I guess I’m more concrete. Or maybe lazy. I needed someone to be specific with me about what to blog and how to relate it to my books. I wasn’t able to grasp anything concrete along those lines.
And so I’ve been wandering these last 10 months, trying to talk about my books without overwhelming you with Crossing information, trying to be me while also accomplish some marketing. And I’ve hated it and frequently putting off blogging until the last minute. Bottom of the to-do list.
Finally God broke through my thick skull and reminded me of a lot of things.
1. Everything about my writing started because my family had to move and my Bible study group wanted to keep meeting together. We took the Bible studies online.
2. I love to learn, and share what I learn.
3. I’ve been told multiple times that I make the Bible practical in today’s world. And God brought to mind phrases from reviewers that reinforced this:
It is obviously written from the perspective of a Christian. Faith, forgiveness, hope and prayer are main characters in this story.
Carrie Daws is not the first Christian Fiction author I have read. Her characters are the most “Christian” characters I have ever read. These characters pray. These characters talk about their faith. These characters talk about God. They quote and refer to scripture…..The way that Carrie develops her characters shows me that she also has a very strong faith.
This book shows you what true faith is and how to rely on God.
So that’s where I’m going on this blog, back to where it all started. This blog will lean towards devotional thoughts, insights on what I’m learning as I draw closer to the Father, and sometimes on my books as well.
After all, sometimes biblical truths are best explained through fiction.
