My name is Charles W. Taylor, Jr.

The mission of The Journey – adifferentkindofstorybook is to connect with people suffering from addiction through spiritual based storytelling.

E.B. Meets the Lamb

I wrote this story for children to remind them of the REAL meaning of the season. I want them to know that there’s nothing wrong with E.B. — as long as we don’t exclude The Lamb.

The Adventure of Bobby the Butterfly

I wrote this story to help children realize the values of friendship, courage and trust. It is my hope that they will see how these values can help transform them into beautiful and strong adults.

Light in the Tunnel

This story is about how over confidence and arrogance can lead us into places that we should not go.

My Dark Room

The old saying, “fools rush in where wise men fear to go” captivated my thinking. My Dark Room is my metaphoric interpretation of a possible consequence when we rush into an opportunity and don’t take the time to research it. There are some rooms we simply shouldn’t enter.

Puppet Man

This is a story that shows how our lives can become out of balance when we lose control of our emotions.


This is a story about how bad things can happen to good people. It encourages us to persevere until we reach our calling.
