There are a few blogs that are must-reads for me and A New Name is one of them. Reading Emma Scrivener’s blog, where she writes about following Jesus when life is hard, has been a safe place to visit while I’ve struggled over the last year or so.
So it’s a serious honour to have been able to write a guest post for Emma about my experience of writing a book while depressed and doubting. Here’s a glimpse into how things have been, and how faith has felt for me when things have been difficult.
Christian writers are people with unshakeable faith in God, right? Well, my first book has just come out and it’s all about Jesus – but there were times writing it when I wasn’t sure I wanted to follow him. Here’s my story of how writing about Jesus brought me back to him.
I sat in the car and begged God to help me. I cried and asked him to please, please just show me he was real and that he loved me.
Please visit A New Name to read the rest. If you’ve never been before I predict it’s a blog you’ll love and will spend a lot of time digging for the treasures you’ll find in the archives! Her book is in my top 5 of Christian books – read it if you haven’t already!
