I write Christian fantasy stories. I deliberately have scenes where one of the characters is struggling, hurting, or experiencing an emotion we all feel from time to time. My prayers are that through these stories, readers will understand God's love, forgiveness, and guidance in a deeper way, and apply them to their own lives.
God is NOT a fictional character! He is real; He is love, and He is alive. His Son, Jesus, suffered, died, and was brought back to life when He paid for all the wrong things we've done, our sins.
One of my favorite scripture verses is John 3:16 & 17- "For God so loved the world, he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him."
God knew that we could not do it on our own, so Jesus, died in our place!
