Holding Out For A Fairytale

The questions below come directly from the book that I am currently obsessed over: When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy. This chapter (Chapter Ten: Holding Out For A Fairytale, which is from the book also) is about singleness and how you should be happy and content during the single part of your life. It talks about how you should use this season of singleness as a time to grow closer to The Lord and find ways to praise Him and glorify Him. Here are four questions that Leslie Ludy asks at the end of her lovely chapter: 
1. What do you hope for and desire in a spouse? Are your desires based on shallow, worldly standards, or are you seeking someone with the attributes of Christ? 
2 What are the fears that compel some singels-even perhaps you-to search frantically for a spouse rather than patiently waiting on God?
3. Are you willing to wait for a Christlike girl or guy, or have you been lowering your standards out of impatience?
4. In what ways does God need to change your…

The Ultimate Guide to Guy/girl Relationships

This book is highly recommended by me. It's so wonderful, convicting and encouraging. At the moment I'm about half way though it, but when I do finish it I will sure to write a long, lengthy review on it. Please look it up because it is wonderful for guys and girls to read. Eric and Leslie Ludy do a fantastic job. 


A Blank Page

You can always edit a bad page. You can't edit a blank page.  -Nora Roberts and Jodi Picoult
This quote is very helpful and very accurate. Not to mention inspiring. The real work does begin when you edit. Yes I know it's hard to write the first draft. Trust me I know, I have difficulty with my inner editor all the time. But know that you just need to get it all out, messy and scattered to go to the next stage and edit. 
What do you think about this quote? What's hardest for you: writing it all out or editing? 

Anxiety

No matter what you are going through God is always with you. I have just started to truly grasp that over the course of this year and this verse really spoke to me a few nights ago: 

Know that no matter what God is with you. He will strengthen and protect you from the evil of this world.

My First Ramble: Frozen

First of all, please excuse my awful grammar! My grammar checker (A.K.A my mom) was super busy and didn't have time to grammar check it so in advanced I'm sorry for any mistakes. 
So I hope that you have seen Frozen by now. It's been a huge hit and so first of all I would like to say that I very much liked the movie. It was great, the animation was incredible and Anna was funny. Plus there was a very hilarious snow man named Olaf. Seriously the movie has some awesome, funny parts. 



But there are a few things that don't make sense and don't add up. Such as: how did Elsa get her power? Yes she was born with it but is a genetics thing? Is it passed down from generation to generation? And what about poor Anna who sings Do You Want to Build a Snow Man in front of her sister's door. Did Elsa never leave her room? How did she get food? Did the servants know about her power? And what happened to Kristoff's parents? 
And I am so sorry but I can't help but compare F…

Encouragement

I have recently been having a hard time lately with life stuff and yesterday a friend of mine gave this to me: 



If your having a hard day or month or even year just know that The Lord is with you. :):)

Scarlett by A.C. Gaughen

Sorry that I haven't been posting. I've been very busy but here is the cover for Scarlert by A.C. Gaughan and I will have a post on the second book in the series soon: 



Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in.

It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.


I found this book while looking around at the library and it wasn't exactly the cover that caught my eye. More of the fact that it's about Will Scarlett and Robin Hood. I personally love any story-done well…
