Day 7: Crabby Kinda Day

For two days now I have been in a crabby kinda mood; I'm short with everyone, I am rolling my eyes at every little thing and doing that annoyed teeth sucking sound, and just being generally unpleasant. I used to be annoyed a lot, especially as a moody teenager and then a moody 20-something. But that is not how I want to live my 30s (or 40s or 50s or 60s). I've found I have to be incredibly intentional in policing my moods and negativity.

Being a Christian Who Writes Zombie Fiction

t almost sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it? How can a Christian woman write zombie fiction? This is something I struggled with since I became a devoted Christian a little over a year ago (which is also why I have not written or published anything since). I prayed a lot about my calling in life. I knew it was writing, but now that I had a new set of beliefs and values, how was that to be integrated into my fiction? Because I was a Christian, could I only write Christian Fiction now? Zombie fiction had been a huge part of my writing since I started back in 2012. How was I supposed to write about such horrors now?

The Warrior Princess Website has Launched!

As I research and write my first nonfiction Christian book, "Warrior Princess: Claim Your Identity in Christ", I wanted to start reaching out to women all over the world to encourage them and help them through trials and tough times, or even just daily struggles. I decided the best way to do that was to make a companion website to the book.

I Am a Warrior Princess: Pt 1

For the last month I have been rereading the Bible cover-to-cover for verses to include in my upcoming nonfiction book "Warrior Princess: Claiming Your Identity in Christ". The book is going to take a look at the dual traits and personalities the Father and Son say we are to be, specifically as women. #WarriorPrincess

The Daniel Fast

I thought I would take the time to write up a little bit about my experience with the Daniel Fast. Our church does it together every January and this is my first time attempting it fully. Last year, I fasted coffee, and I thought that was hard! The Daniel Fast diet is extremely restricting- no meat, no dairy, no sugars, no caffeine, only whole wheats, veggies, fruits, brown rice.
