Tell us a little about yourself. When I co-wrote Art and the Bible for Children (ABC), I was 14 years old and just beginning to flesh out the talent for writing and Biblical exposition that I use now as a Liberty University religion major.
What was your motivation behind this project? It began as a story submission to Barry Stebbing for inclusion in ABC and ended as a proposal that I write the entire manuscript. I must admit that at the time, the idea was a little overwhelming. My entire motivation for the whole thing was to put the stories of the Bible at the level of children and make the Scriptures relevant without sacrificing the authenticity of the story.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Hopefully, this will make the Word of God come alive, as children read the stories then learn how to recreate them using Barry Stebbing's magnificent art lessons.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This was really my first experience with the business world. Tax forms, deadlines...a whole plethora of things. Also, it really forced me to understand the Bible, not just read the words. It's something I would challenge any Christian to do. Take a Bible passage and put in words that someone who's never heard of Christianity will understand. It really forces you to know what you believe.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? At the time I was writing this book, I really can't say. With me writing the Bible stories, really the only influence you can have is the Bible. Now, I would say that in the non-fiction realm, I am strongly influenced by the writings of Norman Geisler, Ravi Zacharias, and William Lane Craig. As far as fiction, hands down favorite: Ted Dekker.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I really want to send out a big thank you to Barry Stebbing for getting me started on this project. It really was a fun venture for me, and I am incredibly happy with the finished result. The art lessons are wonderful and the artwork astounding. I feel so honored to have my writing included in this.
