Question:
Hey Brent, you haven’t been writing much on SeriousFaith. Everything okay? Are you not going to keep up the Bible messages and answers?

Answer:

Slowing down? Quitting? Giving up? Moving on?

No. No. No. No.

There’s a time and season for everything, and it’s just been hard the last few months to write consistently, much less daily.

Abby has been in the hospital 21 times. Unless you’re a pretty new reader, most of you will remember that my income took a 50% pay cut back in the Fall, so I’ve had to increase my work load to make up that income especially with the increase in medical expenses.

Things seem to be “happening” and I’m doing what I can to make time to for even MORE writing than before. It’s no secret that I would write full time if I could figure out some way to pay the bills. The reality is, it’s one thing to be a good writer and have a lot of people enjoy it and be blessed by it. It’s quite another thing to make a living writing, especially when much of my writing is “Bible” and I don’t want to commercialize it.

It’s not unusual for me to write five or ten thousand words in one day on various projects. I have several book projects, the blogs, the magazine and SeriousFaith. There is a LOT I want to do…

Caring for Abby in all aspects eats up several hours a day right now whether driving to the hospital, or making money to pay bills, or being up at night with her. That’s several hours I used to have to write that are now consumed caring for her, and making up the pay cut.

God is good. Everything happens in His timing. It’s a little discouraging because I’ve lost the majority of my daily traffic and readers both on SeriousFaith and my personal blog (BrentRiggs.com).

However, I just have to do what I have to do, and know that God is control and there is no reason to be anxious or discontent. I do hope to be able to start writing more regularly again on SeriousFaith.com very soon.

I’ve been doing SeriousFaith.com for about 7 years now, and I have no intention of anything except writing more and more until God calls me Home.
