Book Review: Only Children Chase Sawdust

only_children_chase_sawdust_banner_

My Review:

4 out of 5 stars

This book was a sweet, but painful (in a good way) story of courage, sacrifice, and the willingness to follow God.

Overall:

The story was intriguing and there were moments where I was staring with my mouth open, in shock at the plot twist or what had just happened. It was a very well written tale, full of suspense, sweet moments, and a Christian message interwoven with great care and skill. It was well written, pace, plot, and story were well put together and I enjoyed it thoroughly!Read More »

I was lonely.

In the depths of despair really. I was by myself during the largest war in history. It was the best of times and the worst of times. The best of times because it was beautiful to see so many people fighting for the same cause, united as it were against an evil force and with love for humanity in their hearts. But it was also the worst of times because of that very same evil force and the people who were so afraid, they turned to evil themselves to cope with the evil around them. Not exactly my idea of coping, but to each their own. Read More »

My Struggle with Avoiding Spoilers

As some of you might know, I am really excited about the impending release of Deliver by Tricia Mingerink. I mentioned in my latest Vlog, that it was one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2017 for me. I read the first three books of the series last year and loved them! Finding clean, medieval fiction is difficult, and I probably don’t have to remind you that I am fascinated and have a love affair with times long past. While the Blades of Acktar Series are fantasty, they are non-magical fantasy, which I love even more! They are so realistic, just set in an imaginary location. Read More »

DIY/How to: Children’s Fish Game

Adorable Fish Game

Hello all! I made this last week for my nephews birthday and decided that I would do a vlog/how to video! I am quite proud of how the video turned out after all that editing and I hope you enjoy it! This gift turned out so adorable, I almost wished I could have kept it for myself! Shhhh, don’t tell anyone! I can just picture myself hanging over the back of a chair for an hour or so, waving the pole around and trying to pick up the fish. Open-mouthed smile I remember playing with a game similar to this when I was little, so I got so excited when It came together! Let me know what you think of the video! Would you have preferred a normal post format? Or do you like the video idea? I am trying to branch out since I love watching diy on youtube, I figured you might once in a while too! Enjoy! And let me know if you have any questions!

 

Would you make this game? Did you enjoy the video format?

By God’s Grace,

Victoria

My Vacation in Georgia: In a Nutshell of Pictures

I will just start off right now with a somewhat half-hearted apology for the copious amount of pictures. I tried to narrow it down, I really did! LOL! Are you ready? Here we go!

The day before I left, I cuddled up with my sisters and watched the last part of EMMA by BBC. Some much needed girl time was in order considering I was going to be gone for just over a week, which has never happened before. I missed them terribly. . .
