How did my blog start?
This blog came to be after I suffered terrible pain and anguish from Celiac Disease for over 6 years (since 1-6-12). During my time of suffering, the Lord prompted and urged me to write a book about my very strange supernatural life. I wrestled with God and His calling on me for a few years while I fought the disease. Finally, in March of this year, I published “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life” on Amazon. It is my personal testimony of how I came to Jesus, and my personal memoir of the intense and life changing supernatural events I have lived through.
After I published the book, I felt a strong sense from the Lord that I was not done yet. I have had a burning passion to share the Gospel ever since I got saved in 1996, and the Lord was increasing the heat even more! He led me to research blogging, and after praying in the power of the Spirit and giving it to the Lord, this blog for Jesus was born! This blog is a ministry where I minister to a lost and hurting world in the power of the Holy Spirit! It is a peaceful place of hope, new beginnings, grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love!
Two pieces of advice for new bloggers
Well, since I have only been blogging since 8-10-18, I am fairly new myself. However, I have been a writer for a very long time (started writing in college in the 90s), and I am a 40 year old father of two who has been married for 17 years (as of 6-23-18), so hopefully my advice can help someone.
My two pieces of advice are:
Write with an open and honest heart and don’t be afraid to speak the truth.
Meeting and chatting with other writers is awesome. Don’t be afraid to be yourself and don’t be afraid to reach out. We all like our introverted cozy writer’s dens, but blogging is about reaching out and letting our writing touch souls! Amen!
