• 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

Love Notes

Here it is folks.  The latest Ladybug Production vid.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent in a note!  (Pictures of each one are below.)

Hope you enjoy.  Happy Valentine’s Day.

2013 Valentine’s Day Project: “Love Notes”

It’s getting close to Valentine’s day once again, and once again I am making a video in honor of True Love Waits.  This year, I have a much bigger video project planned.

For the benefit of those who might have missed last years video, here it is.

This year I’m planning a scripted live action video and I am very excited about it.  The video is entitled “Love Notes” and what I need from you guys is just that, love notes.

If you would like to participate in this years True Love Waits video write a short love note that will fit on a 3×5 note card to your future spouse (whether you know who they are or not), then either send it to this e-mail – writingforhisglory@gmail.com – or leave it in the comments.

NOTE: I would like to recognize everyone who participates, but if you don’t want your name on YouTube, just let me know and I will leave it out.

This participation is open to everyone, guy, girl, single, in a relationship or married.  The theme is waiting for love, so please have your notes match that theme in some way.

LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW!  Please pass this on!  Let’s see how many people we can get involved this year.

The deadline to send in your note is January 26th.

Alright peoples!  Share and start writing!

Out of Sight

I just had to share this here.  The imagination in this short is so brilliant and beautiful.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

Pieces of Love

First video project with my new camera!  Really wanted to film something and this is what happened.

Not the greatest video ever, but here it is anyway. This video is more me just playing around with my new HD camera and experimenting with different shots than a real project. I know the music needs work, but like I said, this was an experiment and I didn’t want to spend forever playing around with the cut.
So, yeah, here you go. Oh, I love my new camera, just so you know. 🙂

Valentine’s Day: True Love Waits

To everyone who is still waiting for God to bring them together with their special someone; this is for you.

After waiting patiently he received what was promised. Hebrews 6:15

A huge thank you to everyone who e-mailed me a picture.  You guys made this happen.
