When You Doubt Your Calling as a Writer

By Claire Tucker “Is it right for a Christian to write fiction?” “Well, yes,” I would answer. “But …” But maybe it isn’t right for me. Maybe that isn’t what God wants me to do with my life. It’s right for other people, like C. S. Lewis and Francine Rivers and every other really greatContinue reading “When You Doubt Your Calling as a Writer”

No Matter What, They Will Do as You Do, Not as You Say (Part 2)

The failings of today’s world are the results of generations of behavior Well, when I posted Part 1 of this post, I thought that COVID-19 would still be the big deal here in the United States. However, this is not the case, as protests have begun in the wake of the death of George Floyd,Continue reading “No Matter What, They Will Do as You Do, Not as You Say (Part 2)”

God’s Choices, God’s Mercy

Judah, the (surprisingly) honored one So, after we talked about Joseph last week, we need to connect some dots. I mentioned a few weeks back that Joseph’s father, Jacob, was called Israel by God. You may have heard of the “Twelve Tribes of Israel” – each tribe descended from one of Jacob’s sons. (I’m simplifyingContinue reading “God’s Choices, God’s Mercy”

Why Joseph’s Faith is Unique

Why I wrote my book This is going to be a kind of an odd post, because I have to tell you why I wrote my book about Joseph’s story, and about why his faith journey is unique, without really telling you my plot or spoiling anything. Not that tons of people don’t know howContinue reading “Why Joseph’s Faith is Unique”

She Laughed

Sarah in the Tent There’s an old Yiddish Proverb that says: “Man plans, God laughs.” Meaning, of course, that no matter how carefully thought out any of our plans may be, it is only God who sees all ends and only God who knows what the best course of action is for us. In Genesis,Continue reading “She Laughed”

He Sees You

Hagar in the Desert I wanted to spend today on what undoubtedly will be a shorter post, but one I think is important. I love the stories of women in the Bible because they are given without caveat. As in, they don’t begin with: “She was a woman, but look at what she did anyway.”Continue reading “He Sees You”

Broken People, Unbroken Promises

From Jacob to Israel Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham, was, a lot of the time, a lame person. Now, if you need more context as to who this was and why I had that sentence as my intro (obviously meant for some kind of shock value), I’m happy to elaborate. Jacob was theContinue reading “Broken People, Unbroken Promises”

Don’t Stand Still

From Abram to Abraham Honestly, I feel odd writing this. I almost feel like I’m about to preach a sermon, which is not my training nor is it my intent. I wouldn’t set myself up in that way. All I want to do is share a little, each week, about something I learned from someoneContinue reading “Don’t Stand Still”
