Being a Christian: What Does That Look Like? – Guest Post

Happy Monday, all! Today’s post was written by my role model, counselor, fellow jokester, debater, and one of my very best friends: my brother Peyton.

Rolling, plunging, falling, pounding… the roaring of the falls gave voice to the storm raging inside. He stared at the white foam that billowed where the water hit the rocks. Veiled by mist though they were, they were there all the same… bare, silent, cold. They sat in helpless immobility, the rushing waters stripping them […]

I Hit 25,000 Words!!!

Yes, yes, yes! My novel-in-progress is fleshing out… and it now weighs in at over 25,000 words/17+ chapters!!! I can hardly believe it… I should be bouncing off the walls, right?

Eighteen – My Mid-Term Reflections

I’ve hit the half-way mark in my eighteenth year. Did it meet my expectations? Uh, no. Big no. My little-kid self assumed that when one turns eighteen, one magically becomes an adult, assumes adult responsibilities with ease, has everything figured out in life, and does big things. Maybe that happens to everyone else… but it […]

God and Current Events – My Thoughts

If my emotions depended just on the news… You probably don’t want to know.:) But honestly… I think that no matter where a person stands on politics, coronavirus-related policies, etc., every single one of us has a fairly legitimate reason for being sickened/depressed/frustrated by the news. America just left an epic year of division and […]

In Love – a Poem

Happy Monday, all! Please know that this story – this incredible love – is absolutely real, and extended to you. God loves you more than you can fathom.:) How He can think I’m Lovely Is a Mystery to me. That He would Choose This Wobbly soul To fight for Him and His Seems like an […]
