The pride and joy of this page is the stories that I have used in Fine Arts and have simply enjoyed writing over the years. I hope you enjoy reading them.
Feature Short Story
Splat! The clay slides down the wall gathering on the floor. Now standing over the disheveled, broken pieces of clay, the Potter picks each piece of His broken creation lovingly, placing it on His wheel. Slowly the wheel spins again, the separate pieces come together into one.
Faster the wheel spins with the clay forming in the Potter's hands. Round and round the clay goes and where it stops, only the Potter knows. His hands gently mold it into what He wills. He curves the top into a spout. He makes the base wide, the neck narrower than either at its ends. As the wheel accelerates, the moist clay begins to separate again until parts fly off of the vessel.
Of its own will, the clay vessel splits and its constituents slam against the wall once again. Without one word or sound, the Potter again gathers the clay to Himself and shapes it.
After He has hollowed out the inside to hold its maximum amount, he begins shaping the outside, producing with His glorious hands a completely unique but beautifully united piece of work. The vessel created only to hold the oil now has become a testament to all of its contents. It's beautifully and magnificent edifice suggests to the mind; no demands of the mind, "See the art in me."
Here is yet another of my earlier stories. It's a pretty good story, but it will show you how much I've improved over the years!
This is one of my earlier stories. It's not my greatest work of literary genius, but it shows you how I started out. I've gotten a lot better.
Here's another throw-back to when I first started writing short stories. I
hope you enjoy it. They only get better as I got older.
Lana's Comfort was a short story I did in my creative writing class. It is not a Christian story, like all of the other ones, but it is fun to read. The characters are fantastic and you'll really enjoy this short adventure.
If I remember correctly, this story made it the whole way to Nationals for Fine Arts. Fine Arts is a ministry in the Assemblies of God that checks out the talent of youth in writing, preaching, drama, singing, etc. This one's set in Medeival times and features a prisoner who is more free than most.
This is another Fine Arts story from before The Free Slave. It has some of the same themes as the other Fine Arts story, that of the prisoner set free, but from a different angle. Take a look!
This one's about General Revelation and how God makes himself known. It features the random pagan on the island as the backdrop for this riveting exchnage between humanity and God.
This was another project for the Creative Writing class. We were given a phrase, like "Where were you last night?" and we had to write an entire story beginning with that line. This one's about how God is always with us even though we don't see Him or recognize that He's there.
