Hello, I’m Larry, and I’m a writer…I’M A WRITER!
That’s not a confession, it’s a conviction. I believe it with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength.
Remember the time when someone trusted you with something special? Something valuable? Something big and important? Perhaps you were amazed, even nervous. I understand the feeling.
I’m convinced that God has entrusted me with the stewardship of story, and that’s something I take very seriously. I believe that writing is a calling from God. That conviction is humbling and exhilarating, challenging and convicting. It deserves my best efforts, my most serious attention, and a constant awareness that my writing is an act of worship. I don’t bow to my stories, I bow with my stories as I present them to God.
I love being a communicator! Whether I’m sitting and writing a novel, standing and preaching the living Word of God, or opening the Bible and teaching a Sunday School class, I’m always thrilled by the task of communicating truth. Who wouldn’t be?
So this blog will be about the power of words, and the stewardship of story. I’ll share with you my journey as a writer–the ins and outs, ups and downs, and whatever else pops into my head–as I craft stories. And this blog will be about you–the reader. You see, I write for you too. Yes, I want my books to honor my Lord, but I also want my writing to be a blessing to you. I don’t just write as an act of worship, I write to be read. In various ways, I’ve loved writing all my life.
I graduated from Wichita High School Southeast in 1981, and then went to Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri. I’ve pastored churches in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas. And, for a few years, I was a licensed funeral director in Kansas. I’m a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), and love being a part of the South Central Chapter of ACFW that meets in Wichita. I’m also a member of The Christian Writers Guild. But the greatest blessing in my life is that I’m also honored to be a husband and a father. My wife and children are my greatest treasures, and my biggest fans.
I hope you’ll be a part of my journey as a writer. Please let me know what you think of my posts by leaving a comment. I look forward to hearing from you.
