“Coral” by Sara Ella – A Review

Hello, everyone! This week I’m publishing something that I don’t usually, but am planning to more often. A book review! For those curious, there will not be spoilers in this review. I’m a believer in the power of an initial read – there really is nothing like reading a wonderful book for the first time…

Strive to Live Well.

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you are having a blessed beginning of 2023 🙂 All excitement aside, I still haven’t posted on December and my theme of the month! This will be my last monthly theme post. 2022 has flown by, quicker than I could’ve imagined when it began. But isn’t that the case…

My Updated Manifesto – The Makeup Debacle

Some of you readers who have been following me for a few years (precisely since early December 2020) know that I seemingly have some pretty strong opinions about makeup. A few years ago, I wrote a very passionate article on such, and probably hurt some feelings in the process… though I do still agree with…

6 Things I Learned During NaNoWriMo

First off, for those of you who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is November. In the author/writing community, NaNoWriMo is a month dedicated to novel writing; specifically, reaching the goal of 50,000 words in 30 days. If you do some quick math, that means writing 1,666 words…

Continue on the Winding Path

November has been a weird, yet amazingly exhilarating month for me. I didn’t pick my theme until about a week into the month, which, if anything, enhances the sense of truth to it. From a church retreat to the major whirlwind of embarking on the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing 50,000 words in a month, it’s…

October – Believe and Abide in Truth

This world is full of contradicting viewpoints. Warring perspectives. Noise. And it often feels like its hard to breath in the midst of this chaos. My theme this month, my goal, was to try and gorw in discerning the truth; breathing the truth, living the truth, believing and abiding in the truth. And as always,…

“Enjoy Your Life” – September

This September was rather uneventful for me. Since this school year I began attending my local community college as a Running Start student, my school year didn’t begin until the end of the month… and as such, I had little to do until then. But the Lord still taught me important truths, as He always…

Spotlight: “Anne with an E”

A Christian Perspective on the Controversial Show Many were appalled when Netflix stepped out with the series Anne with an E – an adaptation of L.M. Montgomery’s book Anne of Green Gables. This was especially true within Christian circles. They saw the series as dark, too dark, and missing the charm and positivity of previous…

My first experience with grief.

Last month I had my first close experience with grief. Grief is a natural part of life, and most everyone goes through some form of it at some point. It is often dramatized on TV or in movies. However, in truth and honesty, it is far from glamorous. Now, I didn’t lose anyone who I,…

Keep on [Growing] with Hopeful Faithfulness

This month has been different for me. I finished out my summer job and have entered a strange season of having very little to do… and even less drive to do much even if I did. But that doesn’t mean the Lord hasn’t been teaching me through this. Through the ups and downs, the new…
