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?
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.
