I’m so glad you stopped by my little corner of the Internet! I’m Maribeth, a small-town Southern girl captivated by well-spun tales and the power of a contemplative, Christ-centered life.

Panel 3


Questions or comments? A movie/book/TV recommendation? A request for my review of a specific movie, book, or show–or maybe even a musical? (I do love a good musical, after all.) If you’d like to contact me directly, feel free to do so! And don’t worry, I won’t sell your contact information or anything like that. I’m a nice blogger, I promise.
