The importance of an author's family

As I observe the conduct and conversation of people around me I have been reminded of the importance of my role as a husband and as a father. God has gifted me with great responsibility for the upbringing of little souls who can someday become effective Christians or shames upon His name and my soul.

My wife and I went to the park yesterday. It was my day off and I had planned a marvelous day for writing. I was going to get a lot done on one of my novels. But I realized that spending some family time was more important. I was not disappointed. Today I feel refreshed and ready to head to my hourly job.

As an author, I find it hard often to strike the right balance between family and work and creative time. But I am learning that if I put people first, God blesses my creativity and the works that I write.

Oh, how many lessons I have still to learn!

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
