• 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

Have I Disappeared from the Face of the Earth?

No… I actually haven’t, but when I do, I shall let you all know.

It’s August! And I only made two posts last month….Hmm…. can you say life is crazy?  I shall try and give you all an update on how things are going.

I haven’t had much time to write… well, actually, I haven’t had ANY time.  Which as been weird… but it’s kind of what happened this summer.  Things of been rather crazy in the Jenkins house and between working and having lots of things to do at home, Choices, Chances and a few other story projects have been placed on the shelf until Fall.  (At which time I plan on wrestling them to the ground, finish editing and outlining, and possibly make some head way on development for an awesome new world. 😉 )

In other news… MY BEST FRIEND IS COMING ON SUNDAY!!!!!  Yeah… I’m just a little excited about this. 😛 😉  Be prepared for another bombardment of pictures and awesomeness.  🙂 (Might even get a video… hmmm.)

One thing I have to share….

God is just SO GOOD.  Over the last two weeks I have been on the most amazing roller coaster ride with Him.  And the really cool thing about it is… it wasn’t just with me.  God’s timing is just incredible, how He puts things together, moments in peoples lives, shared experiences…yeah.  It’s hard to describe.  My faith has been completely changed and strengthened.  I even feel different than I did two weeks ago.  He has answered a prayer that has been on my heart for years, He’s given me something that I never thought I would have, and it is so much more than anything I ever imagined.  His timing is perfect.  His dreams are so much greater than anything we could ever envision.  He’s given me such a peace, a joy, an excitement for the future… I can’t wait to see what He has in store.

      And it is an amazing thing that God has done… that we’ll never be alone, but always have the Spirit with us.. But not only that… He never said the journey would be lonely… But says so clearly that there will be other people there, too. Mm.. So grateful for that.

    Amen again. Yes. We are never lone. And just when we think we’re going to start the journey alone, God sends someone to walk with us. Mhm. It truly is amazing.
