Resource for Authors: A Novel Idea

For those of you who like writing inspirational fiction, this book is amazing! It has great advice from some of the heavyweights of Christian and inspiration fiction. It has chapters written by Francine Rivers, Jerry B. Jenkins, Randy Alcorn, Robin Jones Gunn, and so many others.

It does not give advice for just inspiration writers (though that is a primary focus). It also gives pointers on drafting, construction, and so much more. Check it out!

Painting- The Trinity

30 TrinityThis is one of my favorite paintings. I call it The Trinity. The Bronze says Son, the Silver says Spirit, and the Gold says Father. It is the best in my Hebrew calligraphy series. It is on a 36×36 canvas painted with acrylic paint.

This little chalkboard made me smile. Artists indeed are those who create the stuff we do not need – or are they!!?? Who decides what humanity does and does not need? Is art so superfluous a luxury that only the rich or self-indulgent can justify or allow such decadence?

Resurrection Sunday Painting- Appearance of God

29 The Appearance of GodThis is another of my Hebrew calligraphy series that says “The Appearance of God.” It is on a smaller canvas with acrylic paint.

I thought this was perfect for Resurrection Sunday, commonly known as Easter. Jesus was, is, and always will be God. His resurrection proved that He had conquered death, hell, and the grave. He gave His power through Holy Spirit and His Resurrection is what has made us whole!
