Do Not Follow Your Heart

The common saying, “Follow your heart” borders on becoming a cliche.  Entire books and movies are dedicated to this notion.  At some point, the hero realizes that all of his problems will work out if he or she simply listens to their heart.  The Disney movie, “Mulan” uses it as a theme song.  Yet, the Bible comes packed with warnings on the subject, telling us that our ‘heart is deceitful above all things (Jer 17.9).   Our heart, or emotions, make terrible guides.  Consider this passage from Luke.

Writing Update – Nov 7, 2018

Salutations!  I train continues to move forward on the re-write of Wildlight.  Using Scrivener and the snowflake method, I have laid down a foundation to build on and have begun working on character details.  Please note, that in order to talk about some of this in detail, you may be exposed to spoilers on the story (But, hey, the original story has been around for over a decade!).


The Angry Atheist


“The question is, is the way the universe began chosen by God for reasons we can’t understand, or was it determined by a law of science? I believe the second,” wrote Hawking. “If you like, you can call the laws of science ‘God’, but it wouldn’t be a personal God that you would meet and put questions to.” – Stephen Hawking

Writing Update – Oct 17, 2018


Admittedly, I did not get much writing done this week.  I doubt I can get much done for the rest of the month due to immense amount of work on my desk.  However, that will not stop me from trying!  In the mean time, I wanted to share some more outfit designs that I did complete, plus a tool I use for writing.


Writing Update – Oct 10, 2018


I have made some good progress with both writing and drawing this week.  I would have loved to accomplished more, but my job has really piled on the work, lately. I also have a bit of a personal request in this week’s blog entry.


Writing Update – Oct 4, 2018


Last week, I announced I would move forward with creating Wildlight content again. As anyone who writes knows, this process will take some time to get going. However, for the few people who care about these kinds of details, I will share my experiences here, on a regular basis. Furthermore, I will often post notes about my characters, settings and more right here for those who want to dive deeper into the Universe of Wildlight. Again, this will be a return to form for this blog, which I started as a way to share my journey as a writer and artist who loves God.  With that said, please allow me to share what I have worked on this week.

Wildlight Returns


Recently, I have felt God pushing me in a new, yet old direction.  And the short version of this story ends in “I shall return to drawing Wildlight comics in the near future.”  The longer version contains some interesting details for those who wish to know more, out of love for the character or just curiosity about the direction of a fellow writer and artist.
