God Has a Plan Anyway



How many times have I walked out of a room and said something that tore someone down. How many times have I raised my voice out of anger and told myself that it was just to be heard. How many times have I pointed my finger at somebody else. How many times have I made a mountain out of a pebble. Too many.
I am so imperfect and cannot number the times I have messed up and said something that I regret. How could a God who is absolutely perfect want to use someone who makes so many mistakes? I found these verses a little while ago and they meant so much to me. 

1 Corinthians 1:27-28
But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are,

The thought of God choosing someone weak seems so crazy, but when you think about how many times God chose the low for his plans in the Bible it’s more obvious. God chose the line of Jesus to go through Benjamin, the youngest. God chose the shepherds to be the first to worship his son, one of the lowest professions in society. God chose James and John as disciples, fishermen which was also one of the lowest professions. God chose Matthew as a disciple, a tax collector who were people despised by society.
There are days where I feel like I will fall to pieces. Where I feel like I can’t hold it together. God still can use me, and that’s awesome isn’t it? God chooses the weak. He chooses the ones that know they can't do it on their own. God has an amazing plan for my life that I cannot fathom. The fact that I am imperfect and he still cares makes it so much cooler.

How to Create a Fact Manual for a Book Series {Peek into My Next Story}

I started my current story, Ideal Lies, last year, and this time, I decided to make it a trilogy. This story is a mix between dystopian and utopian.


I Missed the Only Year of My Life When I Could Sing, "I am sixteen going on seventeen."

Sound of Music has been my favorite movie since I was in kindergarten. My second favorite scenes was the invasion of the Nazi's. Don't ask why? I guess it was foreshadowing to my future history major. My favorite scene is when Liesl sings, "I am sixteen going on seventeen." 
     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
     MK and my family make my…

Writing a Book With Two POVs and a Linear Timeline

I've never been one to write an "easy" story.

Even the project I'm working on now, one I began almost four years ago, was one of complex construction. Mainly, this book was made up of two side by side points of view. Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
