  1. Writing about Jesus is definitely more important than writing about politics, but because it seems like everything is politics these days its only a matter of time before religion is to. Christianity has always offended some people, look at how the disciples were treated by Saul and others afterwards. What we believe about God affects our world views and our values are different from the world's, and they don't like that. I would say write politely and truthfully, but don't tip toe. Jesus offended people by telling them the truth, if we share the truth we are going to offend peop

  3. That reminds me of the time I was at a friend’s house, and some of those teeny tiny ants had got into her honey...we were having breakfast and I just ate the honey on my bread anyway, ants and all. Later, my friend told be she caught her daughter outside picking ants off the ground and eating them...when she asked her what in the world she was doing, the little girl just gave her a funny look said, “This is what they do in America.”

  5. I have two full length novels that are available on amazon.com. They both clearly express Christian content, and what would be called politically Conservative viewpoints. So far, I haven't received any notification that they're no longer available. That could be because they're both self published, which was all I could afford. I also couldn't afford to publicize them. This means that very few people know they're there. That might be including amazon.com management.

  6. My guess would be that none of us deserve the blessings we've received. The fact that God keeps sending 'em anyway while we might have decided otherwise just shows how great it is that He's God, and we're not. Think of the things you've written... If you write like us, they start out as a chaotic mess, take a dreadfully long time to fix up, and eventually end up reasonably well, though probably never as we'd like them to be. We're a lot like that, though in the irony of ironies, The Lord And Master Of The Universe who can do anything He wants waits for us to allow him

  7. A nice comparison. Since the "food" served by McDonalds seems to beg to be covered in ketchup, it seems like the preferred cuisine of yer run-of-the-mill slasher...

  9. *MWAHHAHAAHHAHAH* I have waited for this thread for a long time If you want to see more artwork, I'm on FB, Instagram, and Etsy @bellasstudiollc (however I am kinda slow at posting my work... but for future reference I post the most on FB ). I'm mainly a color pencil, graphite, and watercolor pet portrait (sometimes people and character art) artist, so I guess I'll just post some of my favorites. Reference photo:

  11. @Claire Tucker If any particular person on CW has a birthday or a glorious occasion worth a scrumptuous cake, you must be quite aware of the fact that they shall be generously spoiled until their abodes burst forth with all of the sweet treats bestowed upon them and their posterity. Why I chose to speak in such eloquent manner shall never be discovered, as I shall now retreat to my toilet (fancy for grooming) and finish uplifting my physical being for church.

  12. ...you have to do it the right way . Here's a good article from Web Design Relief: As the literary world becomes more and more connected online, an author website is a great way for short story writers to share their work with readers and publishing industry insiders. But it’s very important to know the RIGHT way to showcase your short stories online. You may be excited to share your short stories online, but Web Design Relief has one very important caveat that you must not ignore: If you want to get a story published by a literary journal, do NOT put the entire story o

  14. Hi everyone. What a wonderful resource. I am a Jesus lover, wife, mom of 3 girls and editor for a unique non-profit ministry called BBT - Biblical Business Training. We equip small-group Bible study leaders and I have the privilege of adapting, writing and editing their curriculum.

  15. I think it would be pretty much impossible not too...even if you’re writing a fantasy or Sci Fi with animals or aliens or sentient robots as characters, they’re going to have to have world views, and they’re going to have to have organized themselves into some kind of system. It would be really hard, if not impossible, to create a worldview or system that doesn’t reflect on anything in the real world. And even if you could, I doubt many people would want to read it... My own work is chock-full of political and religious stuff, as you know. But I didn’t set out to promo

  16. An attempt at humor (they don't all get a laugh...) See, if her best friend is that terrible, one might presume that her lesser-best friends down the line might be even more troublesome. 'Course, it's not likely to be too funny once it's explained, though I may be straining hard to presume it was funny in the first place. We do our best...

  18. One point, we are worthy. In our human minds, we may not feel worthy. However, we are worthy to the Divine Mind because Christ lives within us, making us God's children. The Father loves to bless His own children. He will always be there to aid His child when s/he cries out for help. Whatever it is you need, Vessel, the Lord will be there for you. Depend on His Word and His Spirit for all you need. Repeat His Word when temptation attacks you.

  19. We've all got useful resources to share. Here's one that defies description: https://www.youtube.com/c/dcpwebdesigners/videos That said, I'll still try to describe it... This gentleman has made literally hundreds of tutorial videos of all sorts, over the years. They'll be of high interest if you have a website, and there are wonderful gems in there, even if you don't. Among others, you'll find instruction on: Microsoft Office, as well as Libre office, for those who prefer the free version... Adobe's suite of creative tools Free versi

  22. Frank Peretti certainly did not cross the line into demonic. I don't know what you're talking about, @HK1. And @KR LaLonde, of course there can be Christian horror. Frank Peretti did a really good job with that. Besides, do you think that to be Christian you can only deal with those subjects that are sweetness and light? What about abuse? Should Christian writers shy away from writiing about that?

  23. LOL I have a running joke with a friend. We teased years ago about broccoli, I think. Or how anything is good with chocolate on it. She teased she would eat chocolate-covered raw broccoli, so she made a video of her eating it! Still have it. Too funny!

  30. Second day of Vacation and I can barely move today. Yesterday an interfaith group was passing out food boxes in a drive up setting. My CERT team was call out to assist and I wound up in the truck. Each skid in the truck was 30 boxes filled with 40 lbs of food. One of their people came in to help but left after the first skid because it was too geavy. I wound up pulling half the truckload to the back of the truck before one of my fellow CERT members got on site and helped me.

  32. Ahhh... one thing I love about this group... we can go from McDonalds <== > Slasher into philosophical discussion in a flash of lightning, or a scream in the night... IMHO, there's no reason why we shouldn't point out our opinions, if we're also willing to hear others out. The irony is, since we know there's a wide variety of opinion out there, the wisest of us may consider the chance we didn't pick out the exact, right one (law of averages, and all that...) So there's room to exercise our ideas, there's room to exercise some honest questions, and there's lots &am

  36. @Ky_GirlatHeart it truly is refreshing to discover another proficient in expressing oneself fully with the English language. It is a beauty rare in these modern times of minimalist expressions that many elect to utilize when communicating their ideas. And I trust that you had an uplifting time at church And I am exceptionally grateful to all here on CW who lavish such extradinary sweet things so freely on the slightest reason for celebration. It is one of the many reasons why this community is home

  37. That type of cooking usually is a flatbread or a meal cake. They were a fairly common traveling food all the way into the 19th Century, and maybe the 20th. There is a channel on YouTube, called Townsends, that covers things like what soldiers ate during the Revolutionary war. They were commonly referred to as Johnny Cakes or Ash Cakes. And I'll stop being a nerd now...

  39. One thing I found very tasty while in Scotland was the haggis. It's their national dish, and is a wonderful testament to how a determined people who were dirt-poor could survive on what we'd consider refuse, and still make it taste good because they had to. It involves ground up lamb's hearts, lungs, and such, stuffed into the stomach, and boiled. It's surprisingly tasty. I had it several times, while there on a tour. it was on my list of things to try, and my first time, they served it to everyone at the evening meal as a side dish, all pressed into a circle, and covered in a sauc
