What’s going on here, anyway?

Hi Everyone!

First, welcome to my new web site!

So what’s going on here?  I’m glad you asked.

I’ve migrated a few old posts from a previous site (which is why there’s a major “devotional” flare to my last several posts! ha!).  And I’m going to start blogging here with new content.  Post topics will vary simply because I have a lot of categories in which I can write.  (see below for more details on intended topics)

The main point of this site will be to create a place where I can showcase both my art and my writing.  I’m working feverishly towards finishing my book, so I definitely want to keep you updated on that project.  Also, I want to create a place to bring people together for conversations.

So, good things are ahead!

Ok, here’s the “see below” part:

Topics I want to talk about: writing, art / graphic design, RV life / travels, ministry / devotionals, drawings and doodles, book updates, and probably more, but these are the main niches I can think of right now! LOL  I also want to have a little fiction post maybe once a week, since that’s the genre of the book I’m working on right now.

Book Update:

For those of you who are interested, I’ve been working on writing a book for the past few years.  I’m getting really close to completing it, and bringing it out into publication.  The book is Christian, young adult, sci-fi, and half graphic novel, half written prose novel.  I’m super excited about getting it finished, guys.  Like, SUPER. EXCITED.  Anyway.  I just had a manuscript evaluation done.  Today I got off the phone with my editor, and I amped up with ideas and suggestions to tighten some areas. My next steps are to tweak those areas, and then get a copy edit.  I still have to finish some artwork, but I’m close, guys.  REAL CLOSE.  My goal is still to have the book completed / published by Christmas, and I believe I’m on track to see that happen.  (the feature image on this post is a drawing of the main character, Quinn, although this specific scene doesn’t really take place in the book).

I want to hear from you!  Here’s a question (and I’ll give my answer to start out the comments): What in the world (nature, the earth, the universe) tells you that God exists?

    My answer to the question: because everything in nature is structured and ordered, there is no way chaos created order.

    I know that God exists when I look up at the stars at night. There is something so powerful for me when I’m alone and look up above and just observe the flickering stars. I grew up in a concrete jungle so I’m doubly amazed when I see nature in its full glory. Another way I see God is when I meet people during my travels or when I’m lost somewhere I have never lacked some random stranger helping me get to where I need to be. I know that God is real and omnipotent and He knows absolutely every step that I take.

    The vast size and beauty of the earth so clearly points to a creator! I absolutely agree this could not have been done by chance. I’m happy to see your book is close to being done, I would love to read it. Way to go Kris!

  4. Pamela Wyatt

    What tells me that God exists is the complexity of the human body and all its marvels. There is NO way that those things just evolved or happened, they were created.

      I read somewhere that …and now I can’t think of his name… but this doctor who was an atheist, started studying the human eye — just the eye! Not the rest of the body — but he came to the conclusion that the intricacies of the eye alone could not have happened by chance, he turned to belief in a Creator, and he became a Christian. Thanks for your input, Pamela!

  5. Heather Ross

    I would say the stars and sunsets. So amazing to think each is completely different and really only God could do that with so many!

    • Kristen

      You’re right, Heather! And the sunsets in Oklahoma are definitely more beautiful than anywhere else ;D The heavens declare the glory of God (Psalms 19:1)

    • Kristen

      Liz, I agree — the oceans are too big, and so much we don’t know, just like the vastness of space. It’s amazing.

    It’s very very simple God exists and I know that He exists because He says so… Faith. He shows is in everything around us from the very breath in the morning to the last thought before bed..

  7. Miyah

    One reason..The genius alignment of the earth and sun! We’d be burnt to a crisp if it was too close and singing like Elsa in “Frozen” if it was too far! :) I’m amazed daily at nature’s complexities and the geniusness of our Creator.

    • Kristen

      Miyah you’re absolutely right! Life would not exist if not for that perfect distance! Thanks for joining in; I ate a s’mores for you on our vacation! LOL XD

    The complexity of the human body tells me that God exists! When I think of all the fine details of the human body from cells, neurons, electrons, etc….to our arms, hands, & five wiggly things at the end of each hand, etc…lol. The nails…how interesting that we have these little pieces of “stuff” at the tip of each finger….or that this “stuff” grows out of our head and just lays, or we cut it, or we decorate it! I could go on & on :)
