One of my favorite things about my raising is that my father was a preacher. Although he is no longer preaching, I’m proud of him and all that he’s accomplished in his life. During his time as a preacher, he served two churches. I made lasting friendships at both.
There are some crazy stereotypes for preacher’s kids. I disagree with them. I was not a wild child. In any sense of the word. I was active in the church, helping with children’s ministry and music. I grew up singing in church and still do to this day. Even education was important to me. No crazy parties or rebellious nights.
Today, faith still plays a large role in my life. Even in my writing. I use few curse words, if any at all. There are no steamy scenes. If there’s romance, it’s more of the sweet side. This is just my preference. I do sometimes add Christianity to my story, even briefly mentioning church or a prayer.
It’s important for people to see my personality, my faith, thru my writing. I want people to see the real me thru my words.
This isn’t to say I have anything against people that write steamier or more adult stories. Everyone has their own thing, and that’s how it should be. Anyone that gets out there and can create a beautiful story deserves praise. It takes a lot of courage to simply put your ideas out in the world.
Until next time………………………… Stay Focused!
