Pinterest Polarity


Sometimes I crack myself up. The latest occurence of this was when I thought of sharing two CKP pinterest boards together: Reflections Faith Factor and The Navigator Character Concepts.


Reflections Faith Factor shows all the ways Shane’s faith in God grows stronger throughout the book. I really love how his faith develops while in the midst of an unsupervised party house in the 70’s. He’s surrounded by high school and college kids with a lower drinking age, commonplace smoking, promiscuity, and yet his trust in the Lord grows. Oddly, this felt like the riskiest part of the story at times, but I am so glad it is there. This board shows some of the why and how of this dynamic.

The Navigator Character Concepts is on the steamy side. It’s an Eva thing, I really wanted to create a breathtakingly beautiful mixed race character. -And I worked with an illustrator with limited english, so I ended up showing him what I envisioned on this board with images of surf culture beauties, etc. Oh yeah, and Killian’s in there somewhere too.

So my goofy punchline is, if you don’t like one of these boards, you’ll probably like the other one. So here they are: something for everyone! And if you like them both? Not sure what that means, but I think it makes you a fan! Follow us on Pinterest, and check us out on iBooks or Amazon. 🙂
