Christmas Traditions

Hello everyone! Christmas really is a wonderful time of year; a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior with family and friends. All this celebrating is carried out differently by people across the globe. Everyone has their own traditions. (Does anyone else here the opening number of Fiddler on the Roof when they hear the...

A Heart to Heart

I'm an INFJ, this stands for Introverted Intuition with Extroverted Feeling. As an introvert, I thrive on alone time. A time during which I think, pray, or just sit quietly by myself. Alone time is unquestionably vital to my sanity. But no man is an island. I love my friends, and I immensely enjoy spending time... Continue Reading →

My Life in Books Tag

So I saw this super cute tag on Evaschon (who has a great blog called Coffee, Classics, and Craziness, which you should definitely check out) and she tagged anyone who's read any of the books on the list. I've read three of them, so here goes! Find a book for each of your initials: S -... Continue Reading →

After posting a poll on Instagram, this category won! I will be doing all three categories from the poll at some point, since I'll be taking a little hiatus from my usual book reviews. Why?

But rather than talk about what we've already been over, this post is all about food, food, food. Pumpkin Butter Ummmm, why haven't I tried... Continue Reading →

October 31

When most hear the date October 31, Halloween comes to mind. However, this October 31st marks an anniversary quite the opposite of this creepy day. It marks an anniversary that has reminded the world of joy for 500 years. On October 31st, 1517, a 34-year-old monk nailed 95 theses to a church door, a thesis... Continue Reading →

Review: Loving Luther by Allison Pittman

Ironically, when I bought this book, I didn't even realize October is Reformation Month. In fact, this October is the 500th year anniversarily of the start of this remarkable event. The Reformation, or the restoring of Biblical truths, began when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the Wittenburg Gate. What these theses basically stated... Continue Reading →

The Greatest Lie

It's often asked whether pride is a virtue or a sin. Never have I read in the Bible pride is to be valued. In fact, the Bible seems to condemn pride. Proverbs is full of words against those with a haughty spirit. Jesus condemns the Jewish leaders for their hypocrisy and arrogance. Now, I'm not... Continue Reading →
