Pam gave us a writing prompt for homework. Here's my response:
"Why I Write"
I write because God made me creative.
I’ve always been creative. I tried to write a book when I was ten, but it didn’t work out, so I stuck with drawing and painting, which I was good at. Later, I turned to crafts, cross-stitching, scrapbooking, and even designing my own board game. As an adult, I wrote and illustrated a few picture books, but never published. Several years later, I found 1st Writes, and now, I write to express myself.
I write because God gave me a gift.
Through 1st Writes, I learned that writing was a gift from God and that gifts are meant to be shared. Through words, I can share the hope and love that comes only through Christ. By writing, I honor and glorify God, connect with people, and I satisfy my own creative needs.
Prayer: Thank you God for making me creative. Help me to use my words in a way that is pleasing to you. Amen.
