Websites for Christian Creators

A central theme of this blog is, of course, creativity. I’d call myself an author, writer, artist, or poet as the mood strikes, and so would many of you. As has been mentioned elsewhere, many times, there’s a dearth of good Christian (mainstream) art. However, many artists and writers and …

It Ends In Death

I just started reading through Ezekiel, first because I’m in between Bible study projects, and second because I started reading through the whole Bible last January and I’d rather like to finish it sometime. The other day I was in Ezekiel 6. Like so much of this book it’s denouncing …

Who’s Gonna Stay?

The first time I listened to Sara Groves’ song “Scientists In Japan,” I laughed. It’s a rather quirky, whimsical illustration of how technology is moving forward, of our collective surprise as again and again “you see science fiction ain’t fiction no more.” That’s why it caught me by surprise when …

Spring In Florida | NaPoWriMo Week Four

Hard to believe it’s the last week–last day, actually–of this year’s NaPoWriMo. It always goes by so fast. I’ve grown up in Florida, but it feels like I’m just now beginning to appreciate the beauty that is my state. And as much as I can’t wait to go to school …

NaPoWriMo Week One

I’m currently at my grandparents’, enjoying the peace and quiet of no internet or social media (or young people… haha). But I’m stealing a few minutes of wifi because I do want to do a weekly post for NaPo this month. If you’re wondering what’s going on, National Poetry Writing …

Best of March| Snippets

Happy April! And happy Resurrection Sunday, albeit two days late (and this post was supposed to be yesterday, but that didn’t happen either… oh well). Here are some beautiful (or just odd) things from the internet in March. prayer // it isn’t about the words | My friend Esther wrote …

Holy Week | Snippets

Something I’ve been learning about art is the importance of including the darkness. The light means so much more, and comes out so much more triumphant, when you see the evil it overcomes. That’s how it is with Holy Week, I think. Easter is what we like to emphasize–the joyful, …
