Learn about Me
Although human praise for my novels and songs is wonderful to imagine, it can't compare to the prospect of God's "Well done, good and faithful servant" when I reach that day and hour.

In the meanwhile, I rejoice in my belief that God has read my manuscripts numerous times and still gets a kick out of my offbeat sense of humor. I think He enjoys listening to my music, too, even when I feel like giving up on it.

He knows the strengths and weaknesses of everything I create—better than I do, in fact—and yet He keeps blessing me with fresh ideas and permitting me to think of them as mine.
