Life is still crazy, but please enjoy this post from my previous blog. Originally published: 1/27/17
Let me preface this post with an explanation of why it is so very short.
I wrote this post about six months after I was finally able to open up to people in order to become closer to them and to grow myself. I'm still a firm believer in breaking the mask.
Have you ever looked at your life and wanted to change things? Maybe you want to read more books, eat healthier, or memorize some verses. Antyhing, really. Those things often seem crazily out of reach at first glance, but they're usually not. All it takes is some commitment and care.
This is a more recent post written after a long stretch of not blogging. It is sort of an examination of why that was and why it was wrong, all coming around to God's work in the lives of His people.
There are studies of the psychological benefits of being happy with yourself, statistics about how many people aren't, and expositions on how to be content. But I believe they all miss a very important point: the effect your self-image has on other people.
This post is a short story I wrote for a class a while ago. I still remember the story of Potamiaena above any of the others we read in Eusebius's Church History. It's my favorite.
Edwin Brook was amazing. From the very beginning, I was entranced with the story, constantly feeling a need to know what happens next.
My first book review from this blog is a review I wrote two and a half years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed Counted Worthy, so I wanted to bring over my review. Come to think of it, I just might need to read this debut novel again...
