You Ask, I Answer, Take 19

Today's You Ask, I Answer question comes from Johanna again.  She asked:

If you could write a book, what kind of book would it be?

This is a question that makes me smile.  I dream of writing a book, and I actually plan to one day, even if it's only for me.

Most likely I'd write a book of essays and stories from real life.  A memoir/essay style combination.  Maybe throw in some poetry or photographs or song lyrics that have spoken deeply to me.  These are the kinds of books that I love to read, and it's most likely what I'd write.  A story of God's work in the day to day moments of life, of God's sense of humor, of the moments in which I've come to know Him, and that ways that knowing Him has changed my life.

My favorite books are the ones that somehow meld story and truth, so that you don't feel preached at, and yet, you find, when you set the book aside, that your life has been changed and shaped because you read it, because of the truths it contains.  That's the kind of book that I'd love to write someday.
