Hello world!

December 9th, 2010

Hello. My name is Virginia and I’m a recovering Minister…

Perhaps I should explain that a bit more. What that really means is that I was only a year away from receiving my Masters of Divinity and becoming Reverend Ripple (now there’s a name for you :P) when institutional politics made me re-think my career choice. During my third — and last — year in seminary I rediscovered my passion for writing. It became my safe haven during turbulent times.

Since then I’ve learned a great many things about writing, book design, self-publishing and — oh yeah! — living by faith. I’m still very much human, so God’s been slowly (at times very slowly) shaping me into whatever it is God wants me to be. That brings me to what I plan to do with this blog.

Like my other blog, The Road to Writing, I’ll be posting weekly. Beyond that I admit, I don’t have a solid plan, but that’s nothing unusual when one lives by faith. Just the same, I want this to be a place for renewal of Spirit, a place you may discover God in a new and unexpected way. I plan to cover topics such as meditation and prayer, as well as topics on speculative Christian fiction, specifically fantasy. That may seem widely diverse, but I think it never hurts our spirits to indulge in a little relaxing escapism once in a while. 🙂

I’m looking forward to all the wonderful new insights God has in store for us.
