FAITH IS THE VICTORY: Blog Tour, Review and Interview

Today I have the pleasure of introducing another author and a bit of her writing :) Enjoy!!!!





Have  you ever felt like too much was going on and you just couldn't handle anything more? Or maybe someone has bothered you so much that you avoid them as much as you can, but they still keep coming back. David felt that way in Faith Blum's short story, Faith is the Victory, and she's here today to tell us more about her book. About the Book Winning story in Perry
Elisabeth Design’s short story contest.

I don’t like change. I know most people get used to it, but I have never been able to. When Dad announced their move and I couldn’t go with them, I didn’t handle it well. Would I ever find the faith to be victorious?

A Wedding (And A Week In TN)

First off: Sorry that I didn't post last Wednesday. I sort of have a good excuse. Well, not really. I should have prepared a post still. But anyways, here's my excuse!!! Enjoy!!!

This last week found me in my other life - TN!!! Once I got there, it almost seemed I had never left! It was a week full of fun, excitement, friends, and more. Too much happened - it almost felt like a month of fun!!!!!

Here are some of my favorite pictures while there - spotlights of fantastic memories!













The wedding was fantastic - it rained half way through the service. so we all had to run inside and finish the ceremony there. But it was great (though no-one had great hair or make-up anymore ;b).
There were so many people to see! So much laughing. So much fun! And a lot of dancing, too!!!!

And the groom's men did this dance for Meadow - Oh, my! It was so well-done... and funny! If you really want to see the dance I posted the video on my facebook.

And the rest of the week? It was awesome! I got …

Struggles are Real

I hate planes.
It's not that I hate the flying part, or that I'm scared of being high above the ground. I actually rather enjoy that part.




But I hate all the security, and how rude everyone can be. And one time in particular I had a bad experience because they didn't like my skirt or my ID.
Of course this wasn't exactly the worst thing in the world. Many people have had many much more terrible experiences, to the point that they were truly violated or their lives in danger.
And one person made sure to tell me this when I told them why I didn't like flying.
Ouch.
That's all I can think when someone says your fears or struggles are unbiased because of others' real struggles.
You scrunch up and feel guilty. It's like someone is saying, “You don't know what real pain and fear is, because you have been too sheltered. You don't even know how to truly love God, because you have never really been tested.”
Or maybe they outright say this.
