Lent 2017 (Year A)

Turn Your Destructive Energy Into Constructive Energy by David Burt

A lot of negative vibes and energy many people express or radiate is usually misdirected energy. Some people have a lot of energy inside of them that they have difficulty containing, so it “bursts” out of them in the form of rage, hyperactivity, or a fast talking hot mouth. 163 more words

My Daily Challenge

The Jewel by Amy Ewing

I would love to be able to say something cheesy about this story like, “The Jewel is a shining gem in my treasury of novels!” Unfortunately, though, this jewel is not a glittering diamond, not a geode that’s better once you crack it open (the cover is one of the best things about it, actually–and don’t you all pretend you don’t judge books by their covers, too!), not even a fun pebble that a little kid might find in somebody’s flower garden and decide to keep. 828 more words
