Why I write about Christian romance

For those who stumble here and notice most of my stories deal with fictional romance, I want to tell you why. I was surfing the web one day and came across some websites that advertised this subject. I was disappointed to note that some were not written with scripture based ideas and others were dealing with sex only.

I became so upset with the explicit trashy scenes I read, that I spoke to the Lord about it. My answer came quite sudden. I was embarking on a new road to Christian romance writing. You will find that I often go to the word of God as the story unfolds.

Our God is not a dull God who expects his created ones to not have desire and emotion. However, He does expect us to 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your mind' He is to be the first love. When we put Him first rather our own human emotions and thoughts, our life will reflect what He had originally intended for a Christian.

My mind is on Him before I type a word. Ideas come easily if I do not try to write under my own counsel. I know that He has instructed me to write in such a way as to meet people where they are today. Subjects like divorce, extramarital affairs,drugs, alcohol,pride, torn relationships and many other struggles are not glossed over as I write. My heart is to let the reader see where God's word fits into every aspect of life.
