My fellow author and mother wrote this on her blog, and I really appreciated it. As authors, I don't think we mention our faiths much unless we specifically write about it. But otherwise, at least for me, I try to keep a bland spiritual profile. I'm trying to attract readers, so I wouldn't want to turn anyone off or offend them.
But here's the truth: I'm Christian. Devotedly so, and I'm proud and happy about it. In this post, Eileen discusses the fact that she added a character who prays in her book. There's nothing about worshiping God, no preaching, and no pushing any ideals. But her character does pray in the book, and I'm really glad she didn't back down from the fact that that's who her character is. Because really, lots of girls pray, I think. We just don't always touch on it.
Read the post! It's a good one:
