• The Writer


    Hello! My name is Laura, welcome to my blog! I write weird stories, collect dragon plushies and stay up too late with my nose in a book. I am a wife, mom and child saved by grace. My hope is that you find encouragement here or at least a smile or too.
    God bless!

    We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "The only just literary critic," he concluded, "is Christ, who admires more than does any man the gifts He Himself has bestowed."
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "Writers who see by the light of their Christian faith will have, in these times, the sharpest eye for the grotesque, for the perverse, and for the unacceptable. To the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures."
    ~Flannery O'Connor

    You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.
    ~Arthur Polotnik

    Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
    ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

    "There are forms of insanity that condemn people to hear voices against their will, but as writers we invite ourselves to hear voices without relinquishing our hold on reality or our right to control."
    ~Writing Fiction by Janet Burroway

    Christians have sometimes been suspicious of stories, because they really can influence you. If you read the Twilight novels once a month for a year, I think you'd be a different human afterward—and not a sparkly one.
    ~Nate Wilson

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

 Welcome to the space age!  (But where’s our flying cars?)  😉 

 2010!  Wow!  It just seems like a few days ago we are all say the year 2000 sounded weird.  Now, that was ten years ago!  As always I wonder what this New Year will bring.  I’m filled with anticipation, a bit of dread and eagerness for some new adventure.  I have no expectations for how this year will turn out.  I have expectations for myself and what I plan to accomplish, but I’ll leave everything else to The One who has the better plan. 🙂  That’s not to say I don’t have dreams of what this year could hold, on the contrary, when it comes to 2010, I am quite the dreamer.

 I pray this year holds new wonders for you all, and that we will all turn to God for strength as He reveals new trials and the lessons He has for us in this new season.  With that I wish you a Happy New Year and God Bless. 🙂

 ~Laura Jenkins

  4. Hey! First time on your blog, but I WILL be back! =D

    I agree, how weird is it to be saying 2010? It DOES feel like yesterday that we were preparing for the ‘possible’ black out of 2000 xD
    We’re people foolish then?! LOL

    Anyways, awesome blog! =D
