Writing A Christian YA Novel

To submit a guest post, check out this page. God told me to start writing. I did. About five years later He finished what He told me to start (and also just started it all).

A Thousand Papercuts

Writing this feels a little like walking to the guillotine. Honestly, I’ve never done it, but I’m sure my physical reaction would be similar. My eyes hurt from the unchecked tears, and I can’t breathe. My skin feels like it’s suffering a thousand papercuts. It’s death, just the slow-stepped version of it. Our dog diedContinue reading “A Thousand Papercuts”

The One in Which I Die

I think what I’m about to embark on will be huge but not in the sense that I always thought it would. And I’m starting to realize the gift in that. The younger me (let’s call her “Little Ericka” for funsies) would spend hours in front of the mirror, pretending to sit on Oprah’s whiteContinue reading “The One in Which I Die”

To submit a guest post, check out this page. Ever since I was four-years-old, I wanted to be an artist and storyteller. The artist dream was mostly extinguished by the time I became an adult, when I became an atheist and nihilist and lost joy in nearly everything I once loved. It wasn’t until JesusContinue reading “Learning to Be an Artist for Jesus”

Life of A Christian Comic Book Artist

To submit a guest post, check out this page. Lord willing, come January 13, 2021, I will have been in the Lord for exactly 20 years.  It’s been a long journey that has gone much too fast.  20 years full of great blessings, godly deliverance, and devastating losses—but God bestowed strength.  Endurance.  Perseverance.  All ofContinue reading “Life of A Christian Comic Book Artist”
