.My name is Peter Wiebe. I am a husband and father of 4 boys-the oldest of which has gone ahead of us to Heaven after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 10.
As the name of this blog implies, I desire to write stories about heroes. Jesse loved hero stories, and I would love nothing more than to write stories that I think he would want to read. Hero stories , whether real or fictional, can inspire us to live more nobly in our own daily lives.
Plus, I am personally grieved at how many heroes in books and film today are portrayed as many different shades of gray-no moral compass. I am not advocating heroes without flaws, but heroes who recognize their flaws and acknowledge and work on overcoming them. I think of the great Bible heroes like David, Sampson, and Joshua just to name a few.
I think also of the Hero of heroes, who indeed has no flaws. Jesus is the ultimate inspiration for us all. The best qualities of any hero always point to Him.
