April. Yep, it's almost over. Lots of things have been happening in April. Lord-willing, more things to happen in May.

  • Writing letters
  • A lot of school
  • Easter. We had church, then we are a delicious meal, mowed, and then went walking along the river.
  •  Hanging out with my friends
  • Riding bikes with my sister
  • Spring Cleaning
  • Wednesday night Bible study in Isaiah
  • Planting flowers
  • Getting up at 6:55 AM and going to bed at 10:00
  • And much, much more to happen Lord-willing in May.

The sun is so bright!

What to Expect

So, I've been really thinking about what God is leading me to post. Book reviews is an idea that came. I will post a brief summary of the book, my recommended age level, and a link where you can buy the book/find more about the author. All titles will be listed on my recommended reading page with a link to the review. So this leads me to how I'll do my posting. I'll still post on Mondays and Fridays. I am still clueless on what will be posted, but you'll receive posts, like maybe a Bible verse, devotional, or some random facts. If I ever get tagged, I will most likely post those on Mondays and Fridays. Oh, and once and/or twice a month, I will post some pictures and/or tidbits on my life on any given day(s). Book reviews will hopefully be posted on Tuesday or Wednesdays. This is all Lord-Willing and in the future. None of this is for-sure, it's just my plans. Summer will be a bit busy for me, but I'll do my best to ensure you receive posts. Remember, God holds our future plans.

The National Monument to the Forefathers

See the title? Ever heard of it? Most likely you haven't heard of it. Yep, located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, at 36 feet tall, and  most Americans have never heard of it. So, what is it? It is a monument dedicated to America's forefathers.

and her left hand points up, as to say, "Trust in God".

Spring is Here+Random Candid Photos

I'm so happy spring is here! Warm weather, sandals, short sleeves, tornadoes (not a favorite) and allergies! Yep, spring is definitely here. I thought I'd share some photos here, and link this post on my photography page. Some of these are really good photos, others are just random photos. Enjoy!

What Will I Post??

A question asked by many of you since Despite the Fact is is.finished. So what will I post? Well, to the truth, I don't know! Don't worry, I'll still post. I'll post little short stories and tribute of my life, along with little devotionals. And, sometimes I may do a guest post or two. And, for you who liked Despite the Fact, big news. I decided to write a sequel!!! It probably won't be finished for at least four months, but I have literally so many ideas! so don't worry, I won't leave without posting forever. I still plan on posting twice a week. I may change days sometimes, but I will post something. Stay tuned!

Chapter 15 of Despite the Fact

15. Two Years Later
November 19
Asher is 19 and graduated high school last year. He is now following Dad’s footsteps and studying law enforcement. Even though he is 19, he loves playing with all ten his younger siblings and helping out with the ‘ranch’. Cohen, 18, finished high school last semester. He is studying Theology. He is also raising cattle to sale. I am now 15. I am doing 11th grade this school year. I babysit, play the guitar and ukulele, trick ride, and work on our farm. Ruth, now 12, enters 7th grade this year. She spends most the time riding horses with her sisters, playing the violin, and working on projects. Zacharias, 10, and Selah, 8, have been big helps to Mom. Zacharias is shy and likes 5th grade and Selah has grown somewhat out of question asking, and started 3rd grade. They both play the piano. Levi and Grace, now 4, start preschool today. They both enjoy reading late at night like their older siblings. Grace draws pictures in every free moment she can find. Both twins also received Irish penny whistles. Joshua, Micah, and Hannah (2), are really fun to play with. They are in love with the farm animals, and enjoy imitating everybody they can.
