Week In Review: Where'd Spring Break Go?

Well, there went spring break.  Next week I head back to my college courses, and this week is actually going to be a lot more hectic than midterms.  I was expecting a bit of a lull before the latter half of the semester kicked in, like that slow pause high up on a roller-coaster before you start plummeting headfirst back to the ground...but so much for that!  The downhill trend has begun.

Currently Reading: Well...nix this section this week, because I haven't decided which book to read yet!

Current Projects: Still working on the 150th anniversary play for my church, which I think is almost finished.  Hopefully, since I have officially less than a month before we're supposed to start practices!  I'm also working on My Compass Home and I have to write an article for Clarion University's opinion section in their newspaper this weekend as well.  (I've been a columnist for them since my freshman year at the college.)  So far (not including today, since I have a bunch of work to finish once I'm done with this blog post) I've written roughly 5,000-7,000 words this week. 

Current Bible Verse: Casting all your care [alt: anxieties] upon him, for He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7 NKJV) 'Nuff said. 

Additionally, this week I went to a musical production of The Little Mermaid at one of the local school districts.  A friend of mine from youth group was in the cast.  They did a spectacular job, and I almost wish I could buy a CD of their music!   

What did you guys do this week?

Week In Review: From Zero to Sixty

I wish I would have thought about taking a picture of my class to-do list this week before I started crossing things off, because it totally filled an entire copy page...with small handwriting. But the important thing is that it's done with.  Mostly. For another week.


Currently reading: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics and Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves.  (Non-canon.) I'm also reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, partly for school and partly out of interest due to the Thor movies by Marvel (although it's Loki I'm reading up on). 

Current projects: My Compass Home, formatting A Town Nativity for publication, and I'm getting ready to start play practices for my church's 150th anniversary play.  I honestly don't know how many words I wrote this week, but between this week and last, I filled half of a composition book and then wrote on the computer some as well, if that counts for anything. 

Current Bible verse: Peace I leave with you, …

Blog Tour: Review of "Beyond Her Calling" by Kellyn Roth!

Hey everyone! Instead of the boring "writing tips" post that I had planned for you guys this week, I am excited to be reviewing Kellyn Roth's new release, Beyond Her Calling, as part of the her blog tour. This was a beautiful book and I loved pretty much every part of it. Let's get to it, then!
Beyond Her Calling "At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn't accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?
Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won't really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in …
