Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

sometimes it feels like
I’m walking all alone
like You’ve gone away and
left me here to roam
this world on my own
and when You finally reappear
I ask, “why weren’t You there?”

and You say
“daughter, those footprints
you see in the sand
aren’t yours
they’re mine.”
and then I realize
You were with me all along
carrying me through
the thick and the thin,
holding my hand through
the rain and the wind,
the storm didn’t chase you away,
because you were the one
to silence it with one word.
