Writing Prompt 060: Part 7

MILLER: 7th Character from the left.
Phrase to Include: “This is bad.” “You said that already.” “It seemed worth repeating.”


Miller shook out his blanket and folded it just so. He sighed, it was still dark outside and he was so not ready to get this show on the road. He just wanted to curl his aching muscles back up and go to sleep for a year. He stuffed the now folded small blanket into his pack and pulled his black coat closer around his shoulders. He looked up to see that annoying twit named Cassie bat her long lashes at him and giggle. He hated when girls giggled. So irritating. He rolled his eyes and turned away, hoisting his pack to his back.

“Hold up Miller! I need you to carry these please.” Read More »

Childlike Faith

Childlike Faith

My post a few weeks ago about why I’m not depressed on Valentine’s day sums up and glanced over a topic that is very important to me. My faith in God over providing my spouse.

When people question my belief in that, I always say, God created the world, He set everything in motion and with all of that, I think He is pretty capable of picking providing my spouse for me. I know that He has a unique story for each of us. My faith has been built most recently by the stories around me, however, even before then, I had no doubt that in God’s perfect timing, and in His own perfect way, He would provide my husband for me.

Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn // Review


Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn

series: Dive Team Investigations
Genre: Fiction/Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Year: 2018
Purchase and Synopsis:

4 out of 5 stars.

This book was well done! I enjoyed it greatly and it kept me reading. The overall storyline was easy to follow, but hard to figure out the ending, just like a proper suspense book should do. The plot kept moving quickly enough that I was constantly turning pages. I think I broke a current record for myself in how fast I read it. It felt good to breeze through a book because it would have been hard to put it down.Read More »

Feelin’ Spring // Outfit

It has been a bit warmer for, like, two days last week? What can I say? Us northerners get even a tiny taste of spring and it’s time to break out the tank tops. LOL! It was warm enough one day that we had the doors open. *swoon* So I am definitely feeling motivated and inspired by spring for my wardrobe. I am going to be doing a HUGE overhaul of my wardrobe, which is really phase two because I got rid of garbage bags full of stuff a while ago, so know that the fashion posts might be a bit few and far between still for a bit. Thanks for sticking with me anyway!

Writing Prompt 059: Part 6

My apologies for getting this to you a day late. Life happens. ;D


FREDERICK: 6th character from the left.
Phrase to include: “Wow. I didn’t think that would work.” “Neither did I.” “It was your idea!” “So?”


Frederick smiled softly and settled down for sleep. The others were already in varying degrees of sleep. The embers from the fire burned low and cast a soft glow over the campsite. He shivered slightly and scooted closer to the little bit of heat the emanated from the coals. The smell of acrid smoke and musty wood filled his nostrils. He pulled his book closer to himself. He never let it get out of reach. He hugged it to his stomach as he curled on his side and closed his eyes.Read More »
