“This is your life. Is it everything you dreamed that it would be, when the world was younger and you had everything to lose?”
~ Switchfoot “This is Your Life”
I am a teen writer, currently working on a four book young adult series that explores human struggles and the deeper questions of theology in a high fantasy world. I enjoy hunting with my father, sword fighting with my friends, debating with anyone who is reasonably intelligent, and writing for my God.
“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.”
~ Isaiah 9:2 NKJV
I do not have much to my name, but I do have one thing. I have a King who defeated death and called me to proclaim His name, the name of Jesus. And I know the story that He wants me to tell.
So maybe you should not listen to my writing tips—I am just an unpublished, inexperienced teen. But hopefully you will hear my purpose. God has called me to proclaim hope and truth to whoever will listen. Maybe this blog is not how I am supposed reach people, but it is a step.
Because God will change the world and I will speak His truth.
“Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?”
~ Galatians 4:16
“Forget not Master Valiant-for-the-Truth,
That man of courage, though a very youth.
Tell everyone his spirit was so stout,
No man could make him face about,
And how Great-Heart and he could not forbear
But put down Doubting Castle, slay Despair.”
~ John Bunyan “Pilgrim’s Progress”
