This blog is about writing true stories.
My goal for each blog post is nudge you and me both a little closer toward God. I do that by what I call “true stories, well told.” That’s not referring to my storytelling prowess but to a quality about the telling that is gritty, real, vulnerable, funny that makes us sit back and say, “You know, that’s true.” I hope when you read my blog, you’ll laugh a little as well. I try to keep it positive, challenging, and humorous–I said, I try!
I’ve been a writer for 30 years, a professional writer and editor for 14 of those years. No matter what other jobs I’ve done, I’ve continued to write. I’m the author, co-author, editor, or ghostwriter of many books, including the ones you can see here. You’ll find a lot of topics I’ve written about listed in categories in the right column. I’m 2014 I’ll celebrate 10 years of blogging. You can also find lots of free articles I’ve published in various magazines here.
My name is Greg Taylor. That’s my wife, Jill, with me . . . laughing, like we do a lot together. Jill’s my best friend, a faithful loving mom, a genius math teacher, and a humble disciple of Christ.
Jill and I have three children, from left, Anna, Ashley, and Jacob. We’re very proud of them. They do their own laundry, clean their rooms when we hold something back from them like food or money, all do great in school, but more than anything else, I’m happy to see them grow in a deeper relationship with God everyday.
This is me talking with Teresa and Hector in Honduras. This is one of the things I do as a writer, listen to people’s stories and write true stories from what I hear. You can see some of my books here.
These are some of the good folks at Garnett Church of Christ I get to walk through life and faith with. I’m the guy who preaches most of the time, but it’s also one of my great joys to empower others, men and women, to learn to preach good news to the poor and broken as well.
