Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but has anyone else ever gone to go see a Christian film in theaters simply because it was Christian? Or overlooked its flaws, plot holes, bad writing, poor humor and stiff acting for the same reason? 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)
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!
Remember me? 🙂 My apologies for neglecting this blog for so long. A lot has been going on in my life lately. I had a little run-in with a friend while playing football, and have spent the last month recovering slowly from a concussion. Then I had school to deal with - as of last Wednesday, … Continue reading Well, Hi There!
Short Review: Do. Not. Watch. This. Movie. If you want the long review (don't worry, I'll confine it to one paragraph) keep reading. I'll be including spoilers. In short, Noah started out as an interesting, fantasy-ish version of the Bible story. I was OK with the magic rock giants, the evolutionist version of creation, and … Continue reading Noah, Knitting and Nickleby

Though I'm still very much a novice in the whole "blog party" business, I am quite enjoying my very first introduction to it! It's … Continue reading The Literary Heroine Blog Party
We're only 20 days into the New Year, and already life has been quite busy around my house! 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
We ate lunch at The Eagle and Child - meeting place of the Inklings, a group of writers including J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
Making book covers is one of my favorite hobbies. I love embroidering them with my initials or an iconic image from the story itself. The only problem with these beautiful covers is that they only fit hardback books. I've thought through various ideas for my paperback books, but until now I have never come up … Continue reading Homemade Book Case
