Shaken

When I was 16, I self-published my first Christian fiction novel: Shaken. Joking around, I like to call it “my baby” because of the many months of hard labor that preceded its birth.

***Brief summaries:

When God Writes Your Love Story will call you to wait for God’s nod before jumping into relationships. Likewise, I Kissed Dating Goodbye is an honest and radical call for us to learn (and protect!) our identities in Christ before exploring the dating field. Praying for Your Future Husband is a practical guide for how you can invest in your man’s faith – whether you know him or not – as his someday wife and forever sister-in-Christ.

Mere Christianity and Screwtape Letters will challenge you to view the spiritual world for what it is: real and very serious. A Thousand Gifts is an abstract picture of faith in the face of death, disappointment, and complacency.
