Another Yellow Wood

' Three years ago, as a sixteen-year-old Sarah, I wrote two blog posts respectively titled The Road Not Taken and My Yellow Woods. Tonight, as I sit here at my computer, part of me is laughing. Those two posts, which I lost when I switched my blog to WordPress, were about my decision (after a … Continue reading Another Yellow Wood

Why I Can’t Stand “Strong Female Characters”

 My siblings and I were watching a bonus feature on a TV recently (Avatar: The Last Airbender, if you must know), and it was titled “The Women of Avatar: The Last Airbender”. One thing I’ll point out first is that none of these “women” were over the age of eighteen, so in my mind they … Continue reading Why I Can’t Stand “Strong Female Characters”

My Savior and My God

This week at my church’s Bible Study for women, I was asked to share what God has been doing in my life. As I wrote out what I planned to share, it struck me that I should share this on my blog as well! God has been teaching me the same things over and over because … Continue reading My Savior and My God

Speeding

A Follow-Up to “What Does It Take…”

I've had a couple of comments after posting my last piece reminding me that my main source of beauty comes from the Lord and my character. While I'm sorry I didn't make that as clear as I now wish I had, I sort of did it for a reason. And now I'm going to share … Continue reading A Follow-Up to “What Does It Take…”

What Does It Take To Make You Feel Beautiful?

Well? What is it for you? Makeup? Trendy clothes? The perfect selfie? I never really cared about my appearance until I was about thirteen. I had just started crushing on guys and wondering why I didn't look like most of the other girls I saw. So I started blow-drying my hair, trying to pick out … Continue reading What Does It Take To Make You Feel Beautiful?

A Tale of Two Spies and Some Haggis Chapter Three

Chapter Three               John was on his feet in a split second, only to find his daughter being helped to her feet by a somewhat sheepish man who looked like he’d just come in from a Mud Run. He might have looked familiar if John could see him clearly. Together, they helped Laura into … Continue reading A Tale of Two Spies and Some Haggis Chapter Three

I’m Alive! Nine Things My Family Unintentionally Taught Me

Hello loyal readers! Yes, it is I, Sarah. I'm alive (not exactly well, as I'm recovering from poison ivy and battling with the steroid that seems to help my rash and devastate everything else) and back after exactly two months of silence. My apologies are numerous but not extremely guilty. I haven't had much to say … Continue reading I’m Alive! Nine Things My Family Unintentionally Taught Me
