The Butterfly Effect

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have started my “daily horror flick” tradition a few days early. Normally, I start it October 1st and watch a horror movie every day until after Halloween. I say normally,¬†but let’s be real. Actual start date usually ends up falling somewhere in the last week

Book Club #4

Yup, it’s that time again! And what awesome piece of literature will I be reviewing today? None other than one of my all-time favorites, Demon, A Memoir, by Tosca Lee. As you get to know me, you will realize I have a fascination with the supernatural. Not, like ghost hunting and stuff, how boring and clich√©, but

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day 4

My Playlist VS Obedience

“And now dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8 “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk;

Quest To Escape Insecurity

“We know that the person we used to be was crucified with him to put an end to sin in our bodies. Because of this we are no longer slaves to sin.”  Romans 6:6 (GW) “So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as
