Henderson, Janet M., "The Deep End: A Journey of Faith" (2022). Masters Theses. 929.
This paper is an expansion of papers written in my MFA program’s creative non-fiction writing class and workshop. In English 600: Editing, Layout, and Publishing, the class wrote a paper to document our faith journey and our approach to understanding ourselves and our worldview based on our religious indoctrination. This paper was 10-15 pages long and had a title page, a table of contents, an acknowledgment page, and a dedication page. After writing this paper, I began to consider the possibility of writing a longer work that would dig deeper into the real essence of my faith walk. It would take a lot more than 10-15 pages for me to provide a more detailed story. Therefore, this thesis is a longer version of that paper. Though it may cover some of the same issues, there is more depth and clarity. It is both a literary work and a testimony of my faith.
