Andrea Graham studied creative writing and religion at Ashland University, has been envisioning fantastic worlds since at least six, and has been writing science fiction novels since she was fourteen. She edited Adam Graham’s first novel, Tales of the Dim Knight as well as his short story “Chosen of God,” which was featured in Light at the Edge of Darkness along side her own “Frozen Generation.” She freelance edits at povbootcamp.com. Andrea and Adam live with their cat, Joybell, in Boise, Idaho.
The Web Site:
For Christ’s Glory offers devotionals, book reviews, and practical advice grounded in biblical perspectives. Upon rededicating herself to Christ at fifteen, Andrea became a life-long student of the bible and the Holy Spirit. Her devotionals are written from the perspective of a student and learner seeking to understand the scripture. Often their insights are aimed straight at herself.
Andrea isn’t a licensed counselor or therapist. and cannot provide legal, medical, psychological, or any other kind of professional advice. You are not her client or patient. She will answer your questions only as your sister in Christ, or as His ambassador if you are not a Christian. Whether you take her advice or not and the consequences thereof is your own responsibility.
Comments on this blog and any links contained therein reflect solely the opinions and worldview of the commenter and do not necessarily reflect Andrea’s views. Neither does their presence necessarily constitute her endorsement of the content. She tries to delete comments and links deemed dangerous and/or highly offensive to her target audience, but may miss some. If you spot anything inappropriate, please alert her to it.
Starting as of Christmas 2010, Andrea publishes a devotional, a prayerful meditation on the word when she does not have a letter from her advice column that she can share publicly. You can help keep the advice column coming out on a regular basis by sending your letters and marking your correspondence as publishable. Most of the letters she receives are marked private, and she is currently answering them.
All communications you intend to be private will remain private unless Andrea is subpoenaed, she feels you are a danger to yourself or others, or if you are endangered by someone else. If you send her a letter meant for public consumption, she abridges/edits all public letters for privacy, brevity, and clarity. She will never publish any letter you send her without permission. However, to help others with similar issues, she may opt to publish her response, minus anything specific to your situation that would identify you.
While your actual name would be appreciated in private communiques, please specify a screen name or traditional-style advice column pseudonym at the close of letters meant for public consumption. If you grant permission to publish your letter and do not specify a pseudonym/screen name, she will assume you’re fine with using your actual first name or the half of your email address before the @ symbol. If you opt to change persons’ names in your letter, please note that fact.
Andrea is a human being like you. If you email her, she’ll probably email you back. If at some point you no longer wish to correspond with her, not emailing her back should suffice. You will probably end up in her personal address book, since outlook does that automatically, but she will not add you to any mailing lists, and she certainly will not sell your address to spammers.
You may use the comments form on any page of this blog to send her a letter asking her a public question. Starting as of 1/1/2011, letters left as a comment on another blog post will be answered with a link to the post where she answers your question. Please do not disclose anything you’re not comfortable with the general public having access to if you opt to take this option. Also, if you choose this option, for your convenience, she suggests you subscribe to receive her new blog posts in your email inbox.
