I can feel Summer coming. I love Winter. I really like all the seasons, except Spring, but I don't really believe in Spring. I think that, as soon as I can smell Summer in the air, it's Summer. And, as much as I love Winter... when I smell Summer, my thoughts will be for no … Continue reading Summer
You probably heard someone say that they were tired today. Or maybe you told someone you were tired today. The reason this is so easy to predict is because people are constantly letting everyone know how tired they are. This is what I call Tiredness Culture. And (not to blame teens for everything) young people are even more prone … Continue reading Tiredness Culture: What it is and How You Can Fight It
It was a quiet, calm, slow Summer Sunday evening. I hopped on my bike and rode for maybe ten minutes, going to a place I often went to think and pray and hope. It was a forest trail; a long, winding, rising and falling path that welcomed the thoughtful soul. Birds chattered in the earlier … Continue reading Quite Conversational: 7th Day Adventists
Hello! So, to be clear, as I write this, the day is February 21st, 2017. You should be reading this on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017, or a day or two after. Anyhow: I just thought it would be neat to have this go out to all of you while I'm there so you can pray … Continue reading I’m in Germany! Here’s how you can pray for me.
This last Saturday, on February 18th, I gave a speech on abortion at a local Right to Life contest. Here is a link to the YouTube video of it, but if you enjoy reading over watching, here's the speech I gave: The pro-life movement has been around for quite a long time. In 1968, the … Continue reading I gave a speech!
If you are a reader or you want to consider yourself a reader (like me) then you probably have a long list of books on your TBR (To Be Read list - it's a bookworm thing). Here's how you can get through that humongous list before you die of old age. 1. Take some books … Continue reading How to Read All the Books On Your To-Be-Read List
A few years ago, I watched a movie with my family that made all of us think "why did we waste two hours watching that?" You would think that, after an experience like this, I wouldn't think of reading the book that inspired the movie. But... something in me decided to pick it up when I … Continue reading A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle – a review
It's been a bit since I talked about life and everything. If you know me in real life or you follow me on enough social medias, you probably already know some of this stuff already. But I decided to share here anyway, mostly just to give me a chance to think through everything. Here's what's … Continue reading life today//installment one: school, work, faith, reading
Now and then, I read a blog (and listen to the blogger's podcast) called ModernMrsDarcy.com. I'm sure I wouldn't agree with many (if not most) of her political views, but I enjoy hearing about books and reading, and she doesn't talk about politics too much. 😉 This year, she came out with two reading lists … Continue reading A Fun Resource for Your 2017
The other day, my writing teacher asked the class "do you know who your representatives are?" I was instantly ashamed of myself, because I love politics and I obviously care about the issues, but I didn't know any of their names or even parties. (Except the governor. I knew he was a liberal Republican.) So … Continue reading do you know who your representatives are?
