And Now I Know Why I’m Scared

In my post "It's 2018" I mentioned wondering when I became afraid. After meeting with the woman from my church who is disciplining me and spending some time in prayer and just thinking, I'm pretty sure I figured out the answer to my question. I am afraid because my god is one that can never … Continue reading And Now I Know Why I’m Scared

Hubris isn’t so Humorous

When I was between eleven and thirteen, I loved the Percy Jackson series. Loved. Them. So much so that eventually I had to quit reading them because I loved them a little too much. I reread them for the first time in six years this summer, and I remembered why I enjoyed them. The quick … Continue reading Hubris isn’t so Humorous

Nine Things that have Made Me a Better Writer (Repost from old blog)

It takes a lot of guts for me to go back and read some of my old writing projects. School assignments aren't so bad, but my personal work? Oh. My. Gravy. I literally feel sick when I realize that I actually sent this stuff to people! Ooooh, I can tell you in all seriousness that … Continue reading Nine Things that have Made Me a Better Writer (Repost from old blog)

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

I love driving. Seriously. I got a car roughly two months ago and I’ve already put over a thousand miles on it. I do every errand I can just so I can drive around town. I love going fast- love driving on the interstate. No, I don’t speed. I go the speed limit. That’s where … Continue reading 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
