Dear Readers, Ask Me Anything

Dear Readers, Ask Me Anything

Dear readers, You might be wondering what happened last Sunday with the girl and my purple dress. Well, I wore my purple dress and I hoped she would be at church again. But that week she wasn't there. I kept looking for her, wondering if she'd be a little late. I...

When Faith is Bigger than Fear

When Faith is Bigger than Fear

"Do not be afraid." "Be strong and courageous." "...For the Lord your God is with you." I read these phrases during my quiet time more than once this week. God reminds his people not to fear all the time. We see it on pages in the Old Testament and throughout the New...

The Gift of a Girl and Her Questions

The word for the latest Five Minute Friday posts is "gift". Here is my story. She wanted to know why I wasn't wearing purple. I didn't think she would pay attention to those details. I had worn a purple dress the Sunday before and now I remember we had talked about it...

Finding Freedom in the Unwritten Words

Finding Freedom in the Unwritten Words

This not writing was not helping. I had to think of a new strategy. And I knew this would work. I pulled out a stack of notebook paper. (Well, I called my mom to my room and asked for a little help with finding and reaching the paper.) With this new and empty space in...

FMF: The Kind with Blue Lines

I pulled out a piece of paper, the kind with blue lines. I knew this is what I needed to do because my normal methods for getting back into the flow of writing were not working. Sure, I’ve been journaling every day. That was one of my goals for the new year. So I put...

One month in to 2015 and I finally have a few words for you. I can already tell this year will be different than last year. I didn’t start out with unanswered questions, but I did begin the new year with hope. (I will share more details soon.) Last year was long,...

Heading Out the Door, part one

Heading Out the Door, part one

It was supposed to be a short walk. I wanted to go down the street to the neighbor’s and come right back home. I thought it looked easy and I had been walking for a few years by now. I told my mom I could do it. I would do it. Because there’s no stopping me once I’ve...

Reaching for a book that isn’t there

Reaching for a book that isn’t there

The word for this week's Five Minute Friday post is Reach. I reach for a book, or ask my mom to bring me book so-and-so off of shelf #1. Those are the books I’m not sure I will keep, but I want to look through them and give them a try. Some were my grandmother’s and...
