On Tuesday, I got my first job! The business was only the second one I’ve ever even sent my resume to. Praise God I found a job so quickly! What an answer to prayer! I’ll be working for a small company that does bus tours and charter bus rides. They needed someone to help with […]

Jason Gray Concert

Last night, my mom and I went to a Jason Gray concert! It was wonderful. I got to hear him sing some of my favorite songs, and he also gave many personal testimonies about why he wrote them. If you didn’t know, Jason struggles with stuttering; he started off by admitting that, and that vulnerability […]

Previously, it […]

Here’s the second half of the piece of dialogue I posted last week! Let me know what you thought. Jonas drops his shoulders and releases tension he didn’t realize he carried. Suddenly, he remembers the food in front of him. “So, who was this life-altering email from?” Before Amelie can reply, the kitchen door swings […]

Our Pink Diamond hydrangeas have been attracting so many pollinators this year! They’re so much fun to watch and photograph. We have a ton of fat, lazy bumblebees, but I decided the butterflies were prettier. The swallowtails were very photogenic – staying near me, posing in good light… However, the monarchs preferred to remain just […]
