• 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

Change Is In The Air

Things change, that’s just part of life.  Some changes are good, some bad.  Some are hard, others are easy.  Growing up is a scary idea to a little kid because it involves so much change. 

In the last couple of months I’ve been thinking allot about change.  The changes that have already taken place, and the changes that are soon to come.  I don’t know what to do with them all!  Some are exciting, some are sad.  Normally I welcome change, but right now I just don’t know.  I guess it’s because it’s so out of my control, and I like being in control.  But I have to learn to except that I can’t control, or even choose the change.  It’s not up to me, but I don’t need to worry, it’s all in good hands.  So why do I feel like crying?   

Ever get the feeling that everything is about to change?  I know, how cliché can I be right?  But seriously, I’m sure I’m not the only one and I have that feeling right now.  Plus my thoughts are so jumbled I can’t seem to untangle them enough to write a blog post that makes sense.  Hmm…  

Anyway.

Change.

Yeah.

It’s coming.

  1. Life would be so much easier with a road map telling you were to go…….and big blinking signs telling you what is soon to come. But than why would we need God? I guess thats why He tells us to trust Him and why He shows us only a little of the big picture….so we can make it through change.

    Stand Strong

      I guess what it’s really about is the fear of the future. Not necessarily change, but what KIND of change. I just read in my Bible this morning…

      “He shall not be afraid of evil tiding; his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.” Psalms 112:7

      So yes. Trust. The answer is trusting God no matter what the future may bring.
