Hi, I'm Timarie Friesen. I lead an online community of 100+ writers at Gospel-Centered Discipleship and I'm also an editor at Owl's Nest Publishers.
My writing can be found at Gospel-Centered Discipleship (GCD), Fathom Mag, and on my blog.
I love writing and reading. At first, I wrote what I knew—backyard chickens, the Eiffel Tower, and poems for relatives at Christmas. In college I studied French and Spanish, so my creative thinking detoured as I dissected root words and sentence structures. Then I became a mom and began reading stories to my children. The years we spent meandering through Middle Earth in Lord of the Rings inspired me to write my own stories again.
Reading widely and befriending writers in writers' groups has helped me craft words better—especially in giving and receiving feedback—and has led to opportunities in publishing.
I write to display—when possible—the beauty of God's creation and the good news of Jesus Christ.
Here are some of my articles GCD has published.
