3 Questions Wednesday welcomes inspirational romance author, Tanya Eavenson. Don’t miss the opportunity to win a kindle copy of her latest book, Restored. You’ll find the details below. But first, find out her answers to our 3 questions…
What books have fortified you as a writer? How?
Tanya: About ten years ago, God was calling me to write, but it wasn’t until I read Lori Wick’s series The English Garden that I began to write. I can still recall the Biblical truths I read and how it applied to me then as it does today. Stepping out in faith isn’t only in words, but in actions.
Secondly, there’s a children’s book entitled Tell Me About Faith by Joel Anderson that the Lord used as a confirmation a year later. I was struggling to know how to go about being published, who to speak with and was starting to get discouraged. I remember sitting with a room full of children reading this story about faith, hope, and trusting God. It literally brought tears to my eyes. The Lord says that we must come to Him like little children, and there I was, needing to surrender it all, believing by faith and not by what I could see.
Thirdly, the Bible has brought me strength and comfort at various times during my writing career. It’s wonderful how God gives us a peek into the lives of people like Moses, Gideon, Elijah, David, Peter, Paul, James, and so many more. Faith was a theme in all their lives during the good and not so good times. They all had strengths and weaknesses and God used each of them mightily for His glory. It’s not in myself that I write, but in Him, through faith.
Great choices, especially the last one. Now…
What secret talents do you have?
Tanya: I had two secret talents that I didn’t know of until I stepped out in faith and did it. Writing and teaching. The Lord guides and directs because He knows us better than we know ourselves.
He sure does! Last question:
If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
Tanya: I love to cook, but what I prepare would depend on what you’d liked to eat. Stuffed pork chops, grilled salmon on cedar planks, or if you preferred something Southern, I’ve got you covered! I’d cook anything your heart desired! Desserts included! =)
Put me down for the salmon and maybe some chocolate pie 🙂 Thanks, Tanya, for stopping in…
