A Day of Rest

Friday night to Saturday morning is one of my favorite times of the week. After working hard all week, the only thing I want to do is chill in front of the tv with my family, holding a cup of steaming tea. We’ll unroll my dad’s old work mattress on the living room floor and…

My Essay

Hi everyone! Today, I am just going to share with you an essay I wrote for school. Many people have strong opinions about what Christian music is acceptable, but I believe the Bible says that it doesn’t matter which style the music is. Perhaps the reason that this is such a controversial topic is that…

Hope

“Hope” is the thing with feathers – That perches in the soul – And sings the tune without the words – And never stops – at all – And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard – And sore must be the storm – That could abash the little Bird That kept so many…

Esther’s Story, Part Two

Last week, I started my new post series with the first half of Esther’s story, and today is the conclusion! I hope you are enjoying this series so far. The story resumed as Haman plotted about how to destroy the Jewish people. He devised that he would go to the king during one of his parties…

Trust

Last week at dance, we tried a new lift, and I was the liftee (is that a word?). Basically, the other girls are all across the floor in a group, and I run at them. At the last second, I turn around and launch myself backwards and upwards, and they lift me over their heads….

Esther’s Story, Part One

I received a special request to do the story of Esther as my first post of the new Tuesday series. I probably would have done her story anyway, as it is one of my favorites ☺ Her story began during the reign of Ahasuerus, who was the king of the Medes and Persians. Ahasuerus hosted…

A Spirit of Fear?

My older brother and I were invited to give a 4-H robotics demonstration at a local school! Tomorrow, we are going to talk to four different classes of 3rd graders, and in each one, talk for about fifteen minutes about 4-H, fifteen minutes about robotics and show them a few programs, and then teach them…

Jesus in Disguise

Ever get something in your head It’s nothing you’ve heard, or something you’ve read Ever had a cut, but you never saw the blade Brought to your knees, but you never prayed Ever feel like you’ve been somewhere before You hold the key, you know which door Speak the word your lips have never known…
