SpireGirl 2018 Blog Tour: Spotlight!

Hey everyone!  I'm excited to be participating in the SpireGirl 2018 tour both today and Thursday!  Click HERE for the full tour schedule so you can catch up on posts and look forward to the upcoming features.  While you're there, make sure to check out Medomfo's blog!  She has some awesome content. 

Now for the spotlight:
If you were familiar with the Robertson family back when they had their own show - Duck Dynasty - you may already know who this is because she was on a few big episodes.  For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, you'll want to look them up online because each person in their family is inspirational, and they have authored some wonderful books as well.  The inspirational lady I'm highlighting today is Mary Kate Robertson, who is married to John Luke. 

She blogs on The Little Duckwife and while she doesn't tour or speak like her sister-in-law Sadie, she often writes very worthwhile, wholesome posts.   From anything about being a Christian college student to what it's been like being married at what society considers a young age, she provides a window into her life honestly and with grace.  She's an excellent role model for young girls and a source of encouragement for ladies her age and perhaps older.  Her social media feeds prove that being modest, kind, and courageous -- a Proverbs 31 kind of woman -- is exactly what we should pursue as believers of Christ. 

Honestly, it's such a great thing to see a young woman like Mary Kate living life fully from a Christian perspective.  She opens up about dealing with health struggles and many of the worldly issues we face -- through an encouragingly Christian lens.  Even if she's famous, she's still human.  Down-to-earth.  That's why I love following her online -- she especially has a presence on Instagram -- and I think you will, too.

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 …
