My Writing Manifesto: Why I Write

For a blog challenge from Jeff Goins, I was asked to write a manifesto to answer the question, “why do I write.”  It’s a fair question and one that will help guide my writing. I see many people today with a false image of God (of the Bible).  They believe God to be angry, judgmental,
