The Assassin’s Curse

Hullo! I have to leave in a few minutes (sorry), but I thought I’d just stop by, say hello, and tell you to read this book:

“The Assassin’s Curse” by Cassandra Rose Clarke.

It is seriously amazing. I don’t normally like magic-y stuff, but this didn’t have spells or anything, which was awesome. Totally in love with Naji, btw. Miss Clarke, you are a fantastic writer. Can’t wait to read the second book!!!!

Anyway, read that book. More Monday (I hope). Love ya!



Hey, guys, I’m back from Canada. Sorry I haven’t been posting. It’s been really busy around here. I have to leave in a few minutes to pick my papa up from the airport, but I should be back to posting normally by Monday, I hope. I’ll tell you all about my trip then and about the story I…won first place with!! :P

Love ya and leave ya

Emergency Dance Party!

I had an Emergency He Is We Dance Party last night around midnight… That was when I finally, finally wrote that infernal story. Before I say anymore, here are my “jams”, as they say.

It amazes me how my dance songs aren’t even, like, upbeat or anything. They’re slow dancing songs or something, and “Kiss It All Better” is really depressing. “Happily Ever After” is amazing to dance to, though…

ANYWAY! Yes, I finally wrote the story. It’s called “Overkill” because I had to write it three time, and then I wrote too much and had to delete about a hundred and something words. :P But I am very happy it’s over, thus the dance party. I’m loving He Is We more and more with every song I listen to. I’ll post the story after I email it to Miss Laura Thomas. Love y’all, and thanks so much for the encouragement!

I’m Having Trouble

Hey, guys! Sorry it’s been so long…I’ve just been really busy. I’m having a lot of trouble right now writing that story for the conference contest. I’ve rewritten in twice, which is a lot for me, and it still isn’t right… Or maybe my mom’s just picky, LOL. I mean, what the heck is supposed to happen during the lunch break?!? Being realistic, I’ll sit by myself the whole time. I tried doing something crazy…Cather Avery from Fangirl, by fave book, showed up and we talked about why we write and stuff. I really liked that version, but my mom wasn’t so crazy about it… I have no clue what to do. And even though this isn’t something I even have to do, I still really would like to win. odds are I won’t win the actual contest, you know? Grr. And it’s frustrating because my mom works night shifts two days in a row, so I have to spend the whole night in my room, hiding from my dad. It’s so boring, you have no idea. But I have Leeland and Levi and Adrienne Leigh, my little darling, to comfort me. :P

Love y’all! <3


Beauty – Promote Yourself

jesus on cross

Beauty is not characterized
by the efforts of my appearance,
but was borne
upon two wooden beams and through three piercing nails.
With each drive of a nail
faces line up in the mind of the Savior, one after another,
each with a mask of his own:
deception, shame, pride.
With each tear being shed
and every cry screaming from the cross,
women fall into the arms of men,
hoping to find true love and longing to hear those words:
“You are beautiful.”
With each dig from the thorns
and tearing of flesh,
men seek fortune and fame,
believing that power can only be obtained
through ambitions and violence.
“It is finished.”
The world with its
tainted love and enticing roads to death
stands still.
Divine blood pours over
the lost and broken,
vain and deceptive,
young and aged.
It penetrates every evil,
