Redeeming The Rise of Skywalker: Vlogging With Emily!

Two weeks ago, Emily of The Altogether Unexpected and I collaborated on “Defending The Rise of Skywalker,” a mega-post where we discussed exactly why we love the rather controversial, admittedly flawed, but nevertheless wonderful final film of the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy. This week, we are so excited to bring you Part 2: our VIDEO discussion on The Rise of Skywalker‘s redemptive themes! Enjoy our musings on how you can … Read More Redeeming The Rise of Skywalker: Vlogging With Emily!

Exciting Writing Updates + A Tag!

I know I didn’t update the blog last Monday, but between my Good Friday post and a mile-long list of things to do, I just needed a short break. Last week was full of significant writing accomplishments, though, including 1) mailing my book proposal to a new publisher, 2) submitting my first query letter to a literary agent, and 3) reaching my Camp NaNoWriMo word … Read More Exciting Writing Updates + A Tag!

Laughter: The Best Medicine {A ROFL Post}

Long ago and far away, I did “ROFL Posts”–and by “ROFL” I meant “Roll-On-the-Floor-Laughing.” These posts were basically just a hodgepodge of memes, jokes, and text posts I’d collected on Pinterest or Tumblr, and they were a nice way to update my blog when I didn’t have much to say. I’m bringing back the old ROFL Post today for two reasons. One is quite … Read More Laughter: The Best Medicine {A ROFL Post}

So This Wasn’t What I’d Planned On Writing…

…But once again, other pleasant priorities took precedence over my blogging time this weekend: first a birthday outing with my parents and two of my sisters, then visits from my married siblings (and baby niece)! I have no complaints–both days were wonderful–but my review of Midway will have to wait one more week (hopefully). Besides, it seems appropriate to instead address the big elephant in the … Read More So This Wasn’t What I’d Planned On Writing…

I Ship it Like Fedex (AKA, The Other Valentine’s Day Post)

Thank you so much for all the encouraging comments on last week’s post! I appreciate each and every one, and I’m so glad if that “recycled” article blessed you in your own purpose-filled journey. But as content as I now am in my singleness, I’m still a hopeless romantic–especially when it comes to stories. I love a good old-fashioned fairytale–all the best love stories … Read More I Ship it Like Fedex (AKA, The Other Valentine’s Day Post)

10 Reasons Why I Loved “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

Before I get into this outrageously fun post, I have THREE QUICK THINGS to share with y’all: NUMBER ONE: I had two articles published last week! My very first article as a team member of The Cultivating Project, “A Saving Rest,” went live on Thursday, as did my article “Cultivating a Christ-Centered Lifestyle” with Milk & Honey Magazine! Needless to say, I’m thrilled and I really hope they’ll prove a blessing … Read More 10 Reasons Why I Loved “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

Movie Review: The Rise of Skywalker

Abandon all hope of a Spoiler-Free Review, all who enter here. This is your only warning; I loved this movie too much to hold back on Details! But if you’ve seen it and/or you’re good with spoilers…then allons-y! Initially, I wanted to see The Rise of Skywalker for purely nostalgic reasons. Even though I still haven’t watched The Last Jedi (though I will remedy this, I promise), I knew … Read More Movie Review: The Rise of Skywalker
