Wandering in the Desert

I don’t talk about my faith very much. First, I think it’s personal, between me and God. Second, after attending an Evangelical-based university for four years, I have a very strong opinion about witnessing, which is essentially that actions speak louder than words – I attempt to walk the walk in such a way that […]

The Whisperer

He whispers his dreams into her heart and she sees stars dancing in his eyes. This is the moment it begins, when fear transforms itself into belief.

Me and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

This week’s cheap movie Tuesday pick was Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.
