Author Spotlight Week - Carie Lawson shares her passion for Inspirationals

Why do I write inspirationals? Mostly because I couldn’t write anything else. Showing God’s goodness to his children is the reason I started writing. One of my favorite verses is James 1:17, Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. The romance part of my books is fun to write… and hopefully read. There’s nothing quite like the flirty, fun, falling-in-love feelings that romance brings. But the hope that’s there is because God is present in all of our lives.

I hope that my books are examples of God’s goodness to his children, those who have always know him and faithfully seek His will and those who are just coming to know Him and need his presence to help them find their way.


  1. I just want to say that I as soon as I finish this post, I'm going to buy your Beyond Ever After. I have the other two, but have only read the first and I adored it! Love, love, love the characters. The delay in reading the second is only because I literally don't think I've had a spare minute for about six months. But... soon, I'm going to wall myself off somewhere, with my Kindle and enjoy the next two books without interruption. Also, the covers for all three are some of the most beautiful I've seen.

  2. I loved reading this post. Your heart shines through it. :)

  3. Shawna,
    Thanks so much. I hope you can take some time just for yourself. If it involves reading one of my books, I'm glad. But all of us busy moms need some time for ourselves--so we can continue to be good to our families;)

  4. Thanks, JoAnn. I really can't imagine not writing inspirationals. I hope it can be a ministry as well as a lot of fun for me;)
