Welcome to the Writing Prompts blog, Sarah. Let’s start out with your reading interests.
Which author would you never get tired of, and why?
Sarah: The author I would never get tired of reading would be Ravi Zacharias. He is a Christian Apologetic. He preaches and teaches people how to defend their Biblical Worldview in today’s culture. I have seen him speak 7 times in person and read countless of his books. His books are deep so you can always learn more each time you read them. I love his writings because they make you think.
I love authors that make me think. Second question:
Who is your favorite fictional villain?
Sarah: I’m not sure if I have a favorite fictional villain, but the one that I remember most when I was young that gave me nightmares and made me scared to go to sleep was Freddy Krueger! The movies scared me to death, yet I remember waiting for the next one to come out so Freddy could scare me to death again! This fictional villain still scares me and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t sit through a movie now with him in it!
Scary. I couldn’t sit through one of those movies either. Now, about yourself.
What project are you currently working on?
Sarah: I am currently working on Unspeakable Joy: Devotions for the Slumbering Believer. This will be my second book. I am naturally drawn to write devotionals. They are little life lessons from the Lord that relate to the real world. Writing my devotionals helps put some of my emotions and perspectives in their proper place. They help me keep God as my central focus.
Sounds like a great book. 🙂

Could you be a slumbering believer in Christ and not even know it? Is it possible that you are physically awake but sleepwalking spiritually? Do you have the deep and growing Christian life God intended, or are you sleeping through it? The Lord tells believers to wake up several times in the Scriptures. What makes believers go to sleep in the first place? Once awake, how can believers stay awake? Authentic Happiness is a collection of personal journals of one slumbering believer’s journey of awakening. While the answers to some of these questions were less than desirable to hear, the truth that was revealed changed a life forever. Every believer should ask these same questions and seek the answers for themselves. This devotional encourages all believers to look at their own Christian lives a little closer to see how awake they really are in Christ. It may surprise you.
