    I love everything about this. I tend to overthink all the little ways I can pack hidden meanings into my stories so God is the focus. This just leaves me feeling overwhelmed because nothing I come up with seems to honor God as much as I feel it should. Then my story sits there untouched for a while until it’s something I dread thinking about.

    Like you, I have begun to just let God be a part of the whole process. He doesn’t have to have His specific messages here and there, He should just be a part of the entire journey. It’s so neat to see God teaching people similar lessons at the same time 🙂

    @jessi-rae @elizabeth @brooka3 yay INTP’s! I’m an INTP-T. I’m surprised there’s this many of us on here.

    Most of the stereotypes are pretty spot on for me. For instance, I’m a huge procrastinator. I have a 3 page paper about Cicero and St. Augustine’s view of foreknowledge due tomorrow. I’ve only written the introduction. Oh, I also have an advanced biology test I haven’t studied for. But even though I procrastinate, I always turn in my homework on time and study my tests extensively. Sleep is typically the thing that gets sacrificed.

    I’m absent-minded as ever. I zone out while I’m performing on stage and finish long division in my head. Or I’ll think through story ideas. Muscle memory is a life saver when it comes to solos.

    I’m also a huge nerd. While I understand how frustrating the math and science stereotypes are, I really like the subjects. To be fair, I like English and History more. I’m definitely not a math/science genius. I just find it relaxing.

    The one big difference I have with my type is that I’m sensitive to other’s emotions. Most of my friends are feelers (ENFJs and INFJs) and the girls in my family are also feelers. I believe the truth is of utmost importance but it doesn’t have to be told in a rude way. Logic isn’t rude. Facts aren’t rude. It just depends on how you interpret it.

    Oooooh! I love personality things! I also absolutely love your article! You have such a nice flow to your blog writing. It sounds friendly and comfortable 🙂

    Okay, so now to answer the questions…

    I write because I want to help enlighten and inspire the future generations. Some of the most important lessons I’ve learned have been through a book, and I don’t want those lessons to stay in the past. C.S. Lewis’s works play a huge part in my writing! He made God into a being I could understand more. In Sunday school they made God scary and father-like. I was easily scared and didn’t have the best relationship with my father. So, I avoided God. C.S. Lewis, however, really showed me who God was at an early age.

    For my filter, I’d like to communicate to people that they’re still loved despite their past. This is something that is so important, but not many people realize. Also, working through general feelings of unworthiness. It’s hard to pick just one positive thing to focus on. I try to have a diverse group of characters with different weaknesses and strengths. Well, I think most people do. But anyways.

    Love this post! Hopefully, I answered it the way it was supposed to be answered.

    @raemarie Sure! As long as it doesn’t violate any community guidelines. Either way, I’ll see you at church! My family won’t get back in town until mid-August, so it’ll be a couple weeks.

    @raemarie Oh, man! Moving is such a pain in the beginning. When my dad was in the air force, we would have to move all the time. Believe me, I understand the struggle.

    Have you found a church yet? If not, I recommend FBC Branson. The people are super nice, and I absolutely love the pastor. Since this is a prayer chain, I’ll be praying that you get settled in and find some friends! Who knows, maybe I’ll see ya around town 🙂

    @raemarie Yes. I’m actually touring in Canada right now with my family, so all that I’ve seen are the facebook posts. Still, super heartbreaking.

    Hey! I have a prayer request. You may have heard of it, but the town that I live in had a Ride the Ducks boat capsize. 17 people died. 9 members of a family of 11 died. The ages ranged from 1-73.

    My town LOVES our tourists, truly. Families came here to have a peaceful vacation and ended up experiencing a tragedy. That’s just heartbreaking. So, please, please, please pray for those who lost their lives. Please pray for their loved ones. Please pray for all the first responders who had to see so much death in one night. Most of all, please pray for the people who survived, that they would realize they’re not undeserving and there’s a good reason they’re still with us.

    Thank you
