My name is Joey O’Connor and this is my blog about art, life, and faith. I write about the writing life, art, creativity, relationships, and how to grow closer to God. Consider this my writing palette. I hope you’ll be encouraged in some small way. If I can answer any questions, I’d love to hear from you.
Here’s a little bit more about me…
I’m the founder and Executive Director of The Grove Center for the Arts & Media, a ministry dedicated to cultivating, connecting, and creating the Story of God in people’s lives. We hold evening & weekend gatherings with artists from all walks of life. Our work is focused on developing the spiritual formation and creative vision of artists.
Here on Art, Life & Faith, I offers my thoughts and reflections as a screenwriter, author, pastor, speaker, retreat leader and husband/dad. On the writing side, I’ve written nineteen books for couples, parents and young adults. Here, you’ll find my recommendations on the writing books I love, the life of an artist, thoughts on creativity, relationships, walking with God, and inspiring stories about people who work hard to hone their artistic craft.
I’m also a screenwriter and producer. I produced the award-winning short-film series, Unthinkable: The Scott Rigsby Story, the first double-amputee to complete the Hawaiian Ironman in Kona. With my brother-in-law, Ken Straw, we’ve written an award-winning screenplay that’s currently in development with Last Chance Productions.
I live with my wonderful wife and four children in San Clemente, California.
