If you had to describe your book in two sentences, what would they be?
Revived by Grace is about how I tried to run from God but only found emptiness and pain. Then, through grace, I finally found the only thing worth living for.
Do you have a favorite line or excerpt from your current work?
Emma took the long road home, and she wouldn’t wish this on anyone. It’s made up of self-inflicted wounds from not obeying the Lord, and she would have to live with the scars.
What are five important things that you take into consideration while writing your story?
1. I have a story to tell.
2. The Lord wants me to tell this story to others.
3. My story has to be told as it really happened.
5. My story isn’t just about me – it’s about God and what He has done in my life.
Why should readers pick up your book?
While my life story is unusual in a lot of ways, I struggled with the same kinds of things everyone struggles with — so I think readers can see a lot of themselves in my story.
What was the turning point when you realized you wanted to write and share your voice with the world?
I started my story in my mind years before I actually wrote it. Before I started writing books, I wrote song lyrics — which is a different way to tell stories. At the time, I was doing a lot of personal reflection about my past failures and the way the Lord had grown and changed me. Those reflections finally took the form of my first book.
What genres do you prefer to read? Which do you enjoy writing in?
Real life stories are my favorite both to read and to write.
What five things would you have with you at all times if you had to be prepared to take a trip at the drop of a hat?
My Bible, a backpack, a journal, a pen, and my husband (if he could get off of work).
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
The child in me has always wanted to be a genie and transport myself anywhere with a just a blink of my eye. The adult in me knows I already have a super-power living in me called the Holy Spirit. He is very much alive, and he keeps me aware and on guard.
What footprint do you want to leave behind in this world?
I want others to see Jesus in me, and I’d love to help lead others to relationship with Him.Powered by Sidelines
