The Ichthys Letters: Pain and Glory


I am so excited to share this Ichthys Letter with you all today. There are more on the horizon as well. Since I began this series back in February, The World of Kedoshim has grown. It is no longer just a vision hanging on my living room wall and in all honesty, there is actually less space on that wall now. 

As I begin to work on the next part of the story in book 3, this letter takes us to the end of Finding Philemon, just before Demas and Onesimus leave for their journey to Rome around 95AD. Many of the Founders are long gone and this one letter will usher in the final era of The World of Kedoshim. Yes, I know, I'm just getting started, but do not worry, there is a specific reason I am releasing this Ichthys Letter now, feel free to post your guesses in the comments below.

Kedoshim: A Journey Remembered (Prologue)


This is the first scene I wrote for the Kedoshim Story World. There are likely a good amount of things that can and should be reviewed, but it was the very beginning of this dream...

The Ichthys Letters: Joy and Wisdom


I am excited to finally publish the first draft of this letter for my newest blog series, The Ichthys Letters. This is a series I have actually been working on for most of February and to have these tie into The World of Kedoshim is going be a lot of fun. There will be little connections in these letters to stories I'm working on, and even stories that I plan to write down the road. I pray you will find these letters encouraging in their own right and that God will speak to you through them as much as he has spoken to me through creating them...

The Ichthys Letters: The Letter to Philadelphia (The One that Began it All)


With my introduction to the Ichthys Letters being released just under a week ago now, I thought it would be really fun to share the very first letter, as it was written for my college assignment, here for everyone to see. I am going to re-write this one in the tone, and mindset, that I write today, and will also give you more background into these characters in another post, but it's always fun to remember, isn't it? I will publish the second one soon as well. Without further ado?

The Ichthys Letters: An Introduction


One of the most useful communication methods to hit the dirt running during the New Testament Era was letters. Letters were sent all over the Biblical Landscape and the message that was sent along with them was usually one of significance. Not just anyone could write either. In truth, most of the Letters that became what we know as the Biblical New Testament Narrative were not even written directly by the authors they are attributed to.

Finding Philemon: Lessons Learned


One of the things I've always desired to do in my career as a writer has been to publish a blog post or to record a video of the lessons I learned throughout the writing process and how those lessons impacted my life, whether it be in the spiritual sense, the emotional sense, or even the educational sense. I have to be honest here, I fully intended to have this post up last week. I failed to put the time aside to do that though. I am glad though, because it gave me more time to reflect on all the things that have taken place in 2023.
