Interview with Chawna Schroeder

Chawna Schroeder loves stretching both imagination and faith through her novels. Living in Minnesota, she dreams of far-off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, and princes in disguise, just like her favorite Disney princess Belle.

“Remember studying cubes in geometry? That’s how most of us live. Trapped inside a three-dimensional box. Now the box may be small. Or the box may be large. But regardless of the size, it doesn’t change the reality that we live confined by those six interconnected squares.

“The problem with living in box is that we live within a limited space. And since our space is limited, we are forced to limit everything else, too. ...

“In addition, when we live inside a box, an infinite, multidimensional, multifaceted God isn’t possible either. There’s simply no room for Him! At best, we must confine Him to a handful of traits through which we must interpret all His actions, leading to a skewed view of His character.”
