The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien {Book Review}

Hey guys! Book review time. :) I started this book with Bethany R.'s read-along in April, but didn't get around to finishing it until this month. ;) 

~ Book Description  Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

~ My Review 
I know this is favorite book among many, so don't throw rocks at me but...this wasn't a favorite. 
First of all, fantasy isn't really my thing. Second, little dwarves with beards and hoods aren't my thing (thou…

Heaven's Jubilee by Faith Blum {Book Review}

~ Description
Heaven's JubileeFollowers of The Way were being rounded up, but I never expected to be one of them. I wanted to ask God, "Why Me" but would it do any good? Instead, I prayed for strength and endurance, little knowing how much I would need it. Zane's ConsequencesI'd always done things my way. Why would my flight test be any different?   Hope is All that is Left ~ Our parents had been arrested and Liz and I now hid from unknown enemies. We had nothing left until we remembered one thing: The hope that spring would come again.  Darren's Choice ~ I never should have signed the contract. Not without knowing what my invention would be used for. Now I had a hard choice to make. Violate my conscience or forfeit my life? New Life ~ So much pain. So much suffering. We were sick without cure until the angel came. Star Kitty: The Data Files ~ My name is Data and I am a cat. I never expected to go on a spaceship or become a hero. Somehow, though, God had pla…

Welcome, Jesseca! Go ahead and introduce yourself to the readers. :) 
I'm a Christian, homeschooled girl who loves writing. Okay, okay, I'll be more specific. ;) I live in Kansas with my family, and I absolutely love my state (it's the best, y'all! ) I enjoying playing piano, reading, and baking. Cooking can be fun, but I don't enjoy it as much. My favorite place to be is outside with a book. It's awesome. 

It is awesome. ;) Since we're doing a blog chat here, let's talk about that. What inspired you to start a blog? 

I had been following a couple bloggers for a while, but when my dad was diagnosed with cancer, I asked my mom if I could start my own blog. My parents were going out of…

Contentment in all Seasons of Life.

{ I wrote this over a week ago, but I'm just now getting around to posting it. But here it is and I hope you enjoy. :) } 

I've been doing a lot of thinking about life lately. More specifically, my life. My future. My plans for the future. Plans -- let's talk about that for a moment. 

A month ago I had NO plans for the future. And I was content with that...or so I thought. Whenever someone asked what I was going to go to college for or what I was planning to do with my life, I would shrug, laugh, and say that I had no idea. Which is pretty much the truth. But not entirely... 
Because I do know what I want to do. I want to live my life to glorify God my Father. I want to get married and raise a houseful of children (not Michelle Duggar houseful, or even Olivia Walton houseful, but several). 
But I don't say that when people ask me. Why? I don't really know why, other than that it would be rather awkward to explain to some folks. ;) 
So I say that I don't know and …
