What Is Love? : An Original Poem

This whole week I’ve been at a loss on what to write about. So I think I’ll share a poem I wrote back in 2010 (throwing it way back now!). It’s one of my favorites, an oldie but a goodie. I opened my childhood diaries in search of the exact date when I wrote it. It took quite a bit of detective work (one of my favorite things) but I was able to find it! I was in 11th grade when I wrote it, just 16 years old. February 09, 2010. Continue reading “What Is Love? : An Original Poem”

Your Forever Girl : A Novel Idea by Meghan Bryant

So… This week’s blog post will be of a short story/novel idea that I’ve been toying with. It stems from when my husband, one of my sisters and I created an escape room for our youth retreat/lock-in last October. It was very successful and everyone enjoyed it!! So much, that we had redone some things and offered it to the students that weren’t able to come as well as those who would like to go through it again. Anyway, my sister and I wrote this “Love letter” so to speak, and I’m thinking of taking it a bit further into either a short story or another novel (historical romance of sorts) when I’m finished with the one I’m currently working on.

But some people don’t realize why I did it, and think I’m crazy for doing so, but I wouldn’t change it for the world and would definitely go this route with our other children.

What Cancer Can’t Do: Our Story

I was going to be posting this next week, but with my mom’s unexpected passing this last weekend, I thought it was something that would help some people today. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to write about next week (I’ll just push this week’s to next week’s), but this last Thursday, I went and visited my mom who had just gotten home from three weeks of cancer treatment for two weeks of down time. The next morning this quote popped into my head that I had seen quite awhile back. “What Cancer Cannot Do” although so simple, has a huge impact on my outlook for this journey we’ve been on for nearly two years.

This Isn’t A Joke : 4 Ways To Stay Christ Focused This Easter

By now you’ve probably heard or seen that Easter falls on April 1st this year. Yes, April Fools Day is the very same day as Easter. I’ve heard people say that they will be sending their kids on a hunt for eggs that they never hid, or eggs that have been filled with something very undesirable. As it is the case every year (it seems like), the true meaning of Easter gets trumped by that fluffy bunny and now it has to share a day with the holiday of practical jokes. So how can you keep your mind Christ focused this holiday season? Continue reading “This Isn’t A Joke : 4 Ways To Stay Christ Focused This Easter”
