I'd like to welcome you to my blog. :) I am looking forward to exciting times meeting people, discussing all things writing related (and maybe some unrelated things!), and sharing my self-publishing journey with you.
For my first post, I'd like to explain why I write.
- I write because I feel the Lord has given each of us things to use to glorify Him, and I believe one of the things he has given me to use is writing. Neglect not the gift that is in thee. (1 Timothy 4:14 a.)
- I write because I want to tell the gospel. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28: 19-20)
- I write because I want to encourage other believers. But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. (Luke 22:32)
- I write because I want to share joy with others and make them smile. :) Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. (Psalms 89:15)
So to sum that all up in one mission statement as a writer would be:
I write for Jesus, because of Jesus.
You all have a lovely day!
