The idea for The House of Jezebel was implanted in my heart in early 2004 but the process began much earlier. In my first podcast entitled Writing Ain’t Easy…, I shared why The House of Jezebel can no longer be deemed as a Christian themed book. Although I was raised in the Southern Baptist faith – attending Sunday School, singing in the choir, and participating in Vacation Bible School, all of that was more out of obligation. Even in college, I tried to strengthen my faith by engaging in various ways from volunteer work to ministerial training, but none of that made a real impact on my life. I still didn’t feel like I was “getting it” and I wondered if this was all there was to serve God.
Over the past 17 years, I underwent a *MAJOR* spiritual awakening brought on by several “dark night of the soul” processes – one right after another. The earliest was back in 2000 at the loss of my mother and most recent – around 2012 – another “dark night” experience involving a male Jezebel. This doesn’t even include the paranormal and abusive issues experience in my earliest memories of life. Needless to say, ~ALL~ of this ultimately forced me to a point in my life where I needed to reexamine my own beliefs about everything – myself, my purpose, and even my faith. The writing of The House of Jezebel came to a screeching halt. I had to start from scratch – once again – reassess everything.
A spiritual awakening is almost always precipitated by a severe emotional or spiritual crisis; it oftentimes organically grows out of unresolved childhood – that was certainly true in my case. In a fully-flowered spiritual emergence, you magically discover how to transmute these symptoms and wounds into the blessings that they are. ~Paul Levy, (Website)
