Two years ago, I had the opportunity to put together my first book, There Are No McDonald’s in Heaven: Waiting on God. Catchy title isn’t it? I liked it, so I went with it. My dream of writing a book was born. The thoughts and ideas flowed out of me like water. I had WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson, publish it for me. They did a superb job. Since then I have published a compilation of bible devotionals under the title Thoughts From a Random Mind and my latest effort, titled Man’s Rejection of God: Who’s Responsible? was just recently made available to the public. Both are representative of my flowing, easy to read, inspirational and instructional style of writing.
Writing can be a rather cathartic experience and for me, that’s exactly what it was. It helps me sort out my feelings and thoughts about myself, my life, and life in general. When I look at God I see what can be and attempt to go there in my writing. Hope tends to be in short supply at times, so if I can write anything that could conceivably bring a sliver of hope to someone else, then I feel I’ve been a success; not by the world’s standards perhaps, but by God’s, and that makes it worth it. I don’t seek fame and fortune. What I seek is to bless others.
Did I happen to mention that I love to write? Well, I do. And so far others are glad I love to write, because what I write seems to be making a difference in people’s lives. For me, that’s what it’s all about. – Christian Author RL Keller
