"Words are images of thought refined." - John Keats, poet
Words have power.
Words can encourage, enlighten, entertain and empower.

Add to words the potency of illustration and your audience will respond to your message in startling and wonderful ways.
I create word pictures, utilizing the power of type and infusing words with an emotional element, or even a personality. These word illustrations are thought-provoking, amusing, serious or whimsical. Some create visual puns, while others illuminate a word's meaning.
Whether you are creating a PowerPoint presentation, brochures, print ads, magazine headlines, book titles, a video project, or simply a T-shirt, Illustrated Words make your point memorable.

Short Story (PDF): Elijah Meets Baal

This .pdf file is a short story written by me, Mark Lee Golden. It is based on the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal, taken from First Kings Chapter 18:1-40 in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). The writing is a creative work of spiritual and historical fiction. Enjoy!

You are welcome to forward the file to as many people as you like. This work is copyrighted and not meant to be published for a fee. Any publishing is strictly by permission only. Donations are appreciated, but not required. If you desire a printable .pdf file please make your request by email. The file will be sent to you.


More than a hundred thousand heads craned upward, the amazing streak illuminating their faces. Baal's brood enjoyed the jewel in the sky, marveling as much as anyone. Slowly, eyes lowered a little, the bright mass fell closer to earth. Perhaps this wasn't a meteor shower which would bypass the earth or a beautiful, aimless, celestial phenomenon.

As the spectacle plummeted, observers surmised a distinct destination. One by one, each stood aghast, except the prophet. Each observer recognized this blazing arrow came shot from the bow of a clever and superior hunter. Feeling heat and seeing how the cluster of dazzling brilliance had a mark - and that it would not miss its target. Of all places on earth, each now knew this destination was right where they stood.
