Bad “Christian” Art
Most “Christian” art/writing ends up landing on the corny, lackluster, shallow side. We paint the Christian life as a bright, cheery life without any suffering, even though we know that is not at all the case. Without suffering, there’s no learning. Without failure, there’s not need for the Cross.
This impacted my thoughts on writing — I don’t want to be a writer who hands the reader the connection to Christianity without them having to even think about it. I don’t want any story to present an unclear or wrong vision of what living for Christ looks like. I don’t like bad art, nor do I want to create bad art.

Best quote referring to your bad art that “God gave you”: “Don’t blame that trash on God!”
