Tea-Cakes and Strawberries and Cherries, Oh My!

15 August 2012

There is something special about stopping at a blog written by a young lady who doesn't just say she's a Christian, but breathes the truth of the Gospel into everything she posts. One always leaves such a girl's site feeling renewed and refreshed. Fullness of Joy (answer "c" was correct!), authored by dear Joy, is just one of those blogs. (Not to mention the fact that Joy is a fantastic writer — in other words, her blog has it all.) Today she treated me to tea, fruit, and every manner of tea-cake you can imagine while we chatted about all sorts of lovely writerly subjects. I think Joy's been keeping an extra cake in the pantry, and the teapot is still half-full (though it won't remain so for long), so why don't you drop in and join us?

sneak peak:

How does your Christian faith affect your writing in general and is this novel overtly Christian, or is it written more subtly on Christian principles and influence?

I believe that my Christian faith plays a part in all of my writing, whether it is overt or not. My relationship with Jesus is such a key part of my life — it seems to make itself known no matter what I write. In relation to Violets Are Blue, the Bradshaws and Prescotts are openly Christian, and prayer, daily Scripture reading, and references to Biblical truths are not uncommon in their respective households. Although not all my books will be this way, they will all have Christian principles exemplified.

  1. I loved this, Elizabeth Rose! You did such a good job with it, and it was so enjoyable to read! Your blog tour is wonderful.


  2. Dear Elizabeth,

    Thank you for your sweet and encouraging words; I was so humbled and encouraged my them! I have found you and your lovely blog to be so inspiring and Christ-filled as well. May He be glorified in all what we say and do and write!

    Ah, it was wonderful to have you on Fullness of Joy! Thank you for the lovely answers you gave to my many questions... and yes, the teapot is still half-full (and bubbling on the wood-stove) and I still have some honey cakes in the pantry and a bowl of strawberries for anyone who is interested :D.
