Daredevil (How Bad Can I Be): Thoughts From Movies

I have this thing for plot-driven action movies. I like a good, balanced movie.
Of course many of these sort of movies aren't always 100% appropriate, so that is sad. And I wonder if they are even worth watching - sure you may be inspired, encouraged, or entertained...but at the cost of loosing more innocence and having your mind stuffed fuller with rotting garbage.
I am finding that it is not stupid to be extremely cautious with what we put into ourselves. Food. Media. Fulfilling desires isn't always enough...sometimes one needs to also eat to grow and strengthen. 
I actually don't watch many movies any more. Too busy. Too tired. Or too something ;p.
But a while back I felt like sacrificing all the too's to just take a break and watch a movie. 
Daredevil was the one I decided upon ;)
I kinda like unique superhero stories. Drama + action might = awesome.
I will say, I was surprised by how much I liked it. To such a point that the one scene I did have to skip over di…

Spinner of Secrets by Annie Twitchell 
I recently had the privilege of beta reading this amazing book!! I was so excited to start it when I heard it was a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin.
I must admit - I love fairy tales. Even the ones that are a little bit on the side of this-story-is-so-off-and-this-philosophy-so-unrealistic.
Something else, I knew going into this book, was that it had a unique twist on the whole fairy tale love theme.
So I was excited. 
And not disappointed :) 


Back Cover:
Where will the journey for love take you? Will it be worth the fight?

Letta is a peasant girl, whose father was outlawed and killed when she was small. Though her name means truthful one, she finds herself submitting to her step-father's will, and complying with his lies and trickery.

Prince Kyle is her reluctant husband. His mind is focused on one thing: avenging the murder of his childhood sweetheart.

They must learn to trust each other when a strange little man forces t…

A Wedding!

"Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility," Anne Hathaway.


I love weddings. Especially when they are with people I love.
Last month one of my long-time good friends married a wonderful young man.
I kinda didn't see it coming...lol...we have been friends since we were 15. Neither of us had ever been the romantic type... I am probably considered to be more so than her, and that's saying a lot.



We loved to read and craft and talk. But never about guys or romances...we steered clear of that genre ;)
Just goes to show that you don't have to be romantic or daydream to find a decent guy ;) 




I stayed with her family a week before the wedding to help prepare things.  The first day I hosted a wedding shower - the food was so fun to make! Lots of artistic opportunity ;)
With the games I had planned, we had a very fun evening - lots of laughter and visiting.







The day of the wedding was busy!! Last minute decorations and work, and of course we had to…

It's Fine - That's Life: #Adulting

 I am so tired. 
I am so tired of saying life is fine
I am so tired of trying to be strong and mature and wise.
I just want to cry, I just want someone to truly see me and try and understand and not turn away when they see who I really am. I am tired of smiling and pretending things are OK.
Nothing is alright. 
I am not evil – or am I? Certain people make me feel so evil. So worthless.
I want to lead a life that is honorable toward God and others. I don't want to live for me EVER. I don't want to understand myself more, I want to understand others.
But there comes a point when I can just no longer do it.
My trying only ends in hurt. I can't understand. No one else can understand. 
Everything I believe, everything I work for - it all gets muddied with misunderstanding and hurt and lies. 
I am not strong. I am weak.
I am not mature. I am uncertain. I am scared, not confident that things will work out for anyone's good.
And I so hate the #adulting movement.
This so does…
