Why I Write

May 21st, 2013

Over the past couple of days, I’ve been thinking in depth of why I want to write. Sure, it fills me with a sense of excitement and yes, my imagination spills over onto the pages of a book, but it can be hard work. Sometimes I get stuck. I get your characters to a place and then I ask myself, what’s next? What else can I place in your {the character} story that will be believable to my readers? I pause and think why?

And then I remember.

I remember how limited the options of Christian books for young girls.

I remember my church library and how the shelf for young girls seems tiny compared to the children and adult sections.

Yes, there are a lot of good books, but is there meaning to them? Will you go away from reading them with your faith strengthened? Now, I’m not saying there aren’t any Christian books for girls out there…there are…but there are not many.

That is why I want to write. I want girls who are young in their faith to read books where they can learn more about God. I think of my young cousins and all the little girls I babysit for. I want them to grow up and have good books to read and learn from.

That is why I write.
