Greetings! Lesley-Anne I can So relate to what you wrote, "I take a deep breath as I write this because I know there is a risk associated with stating clearly what one believes."
How can anything I write not be tampered by me wondering, is my Mom going to read this, is my neighbor going to read this?I don't believe exactly the way they do, always I am asking myself, how do I bridge our beliefs.
I think it is this risk that you speak of Lesley that we always have in the back of our minds of not wanting to stamp on toes or be rejected immediately because of differences which makes spiritual writing a unique challange.
Hi Lesley Anne,
It took a while for me to admit that I like writing about my faith as well. I faced a bit of hesitation on what kind of writer I really wanted to be. I think I like a lot of things from the classics to the contemporary. But nothing has moved me so much than to write about Christ. So, thank you for being here and for being bold as to putting this out there for people like me to find.
You are more than welcome, Kathy. I look forward to reading the words you post here at Shewrites, and am happy to make your acquaintance, and to find another 'sister'. YEAH!
