Our second meeting, though we only had two attending, turned out well. God met with us and did some healing work in our hearts and minds. We discussed the Christian writer is a Christian and all of our writing endeavors are worship before God. We also discussed various purposes for our Christian writing including, but not limited to, sharing the gospel, sharing testimonies of work God has done in our lives, and encouraging others.
We also reviewed choosing specific words over general words. We discussed how you can bring the five senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch) into your writing to add life and variety to it.
In our discussion of improving our word choices, we also discussed using adjectives sparingly and not loosing our readers in too much description. A writer can often cause the reader to lose track of the story line if they put in too many descriptive words.
A handout was given out discussing the responsibilities writers have when making word choices. Words can be powerful and dangerous when used in the wrong context by the wrong person. Anger, malice, and mob mentality can be sparked by choosing the wrong, exceptionally intense words. Expressing opinion should be done with carefully planned word choices to avoid creating or encouraging angry people to do bad things. We have all witnessed, on television or in real life, how an emotionally charged speaker can stir up anger in a crowd, often resulting in violence and even death. As Christian writers we need to make responsible word choices.
My name is Robin Ulbredtch. I am a born again Christian. God has called me to write and share His message, the good news about Jesus Christ, with others. God wants people everywhere to receive His free gifts of forgiveness, mercy, and salvation.
God also wants a personal relationship with each person. He wants them to know about the forgiveness, love, healing and hope they can receive from Him. God alone has the answers for all of our problems. He alone can heal and restore broken hearts and lives. I know this because He has done it for me.
I have written several testimonials of the things God has done in my life. These include stories of lessons I've learned in life, in Children's ministry, and in a number of other situations. I hope you will take time to enjoy reading some of them. You can find more of these writings on my websites: www.robinscreativeexpressions.com, www.robinulbredtch.us, and www.robinulbredtch.com. I also have several stories on www.faithwriters.com I am working to create websites that will provide information for Christian teachers and writers.
God has truly taken my broken heart and life, healed me, and turned it all to His glory by allowing me to teach and minister His word to others who are hurting and hopeless. Only God can bring good out of the bad things in our lives, and He does it in a big way. My God--Yahweh--is a three in one God, God the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the word and son, Jesus Christ. My God is an AWESOME God!
I hope you will read some of these stories and see the mighty works God has done for me. I pray you will open your hearts and minds to receive the free gifts of forgiveness and grace that God has for those who ask for His forgiveness of their sin and invite Him into their heart. I know God can heal and do miraculous works on our behalf because He has done it for me. God loves all people and He wants them to love Him back. Yet God allows us to make the choice because to try to force His love on someone is not love, and God's nature is love. God wants us to choose to love Him!
My goal for the Christian writing ministry is to point people to Jesus Christ for the answers for their lives. He alone has the answers and the power to do the miraculous work to bring about healing, restoration, and solutions to to overwhelming challenges we face in life. He is the source of Life and gives eternal life to those who put their lives in His hands. Praise the Lord, Jesus Christ!
