Or recommended it to other Christians just because it's a … Continue reading Why I Didn’t Watch War Room (And Why You Don’t Have To Either)
It's been a little over two months since I entered into an entirely new, uncharted, slightly scary and altogether wonderful season of life: courtship. My best friend and I entered into our relationship, eyes wide with excitement, stomachs full of butterflies and hearts full of faith. The past nine weeks have been the most incredible of … Continue reading The Joys of Mutual Weirdness
Heidi of Along the Brandywine tagged me with this sweet little tag ages ago. I feel bad about taking this long to post it, but better late than never, right? Sorry, Heidi. 😉 These questions are just plain fun, and I've had a great time answering them. Everyone, consider yourselves henceforth tagged! 1. If you … Continue reading The Sunshine Award #2 – At Long Last
Have you ever noticed how many older books mention God? From Sherlock Holmes to Jane Eyre, it seems that many books written before the 20th century seem to include a copious amount of Christianity. In contrast, the majority of modern Christian stories are now sharply divided from secular stories. The secular books generally leave every trace … Continue reading Oh, That Old Time Religion!
Kellie Falconer of the lovely blog, Accordion to Kellie, is throwing a magnificent blog party! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea how a blog party worked.

Lewis: A Life, all in fresh, shiny dust jackets, in a bookstore over Thanksgiving. I picked up a copy, put it back down, read a bit here, a bit there, and debated … Continue reading C.S. Lewis: A Life

I'm now in my third week of online college, I'm reading all sorts of fun books, slaving away on editing one of my novels, written an interview for The Story Girl blog, and on top of all … Continue reading Story Girl Interview, College, and Sherlock
I suppose that if I were a truly accomplished blogger, I would have written this post last night! But New Years' Day is surely just as special as New Years' Eve, don't you think? This past year has been such a blur of new experiences that last night, I actually had a hard time remembering … Continue reading Happy New Years’ Everyone!
Christmas time has come upon us again!! I'm not sure about your house, but mine is filled with wrapping paper, gingerbread, Christmas lights and stockings. I am truly convinced that (like the carollers have always told us) Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! Little things keep delighting me this season, and I … Continue reading A Few of My Favorite Things
C.S. Lewis once said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."I have always agreed with Lewis about the books, but I've always bemoaned the fact that I couldn't join him in his love of tea. After all, it's so British! For a girl who's enamored … Continue reading Cups of Tea Big Enough and Books Long Enough
