Not everyone likes to dig into dystopian literature. That’s fine. Even so, there’s something therapeutic about reading literature written during times of trouble. Or would you disagree?

I love connections. Themes. Hints and foreshadows. The difficulty, however, is that in religious writing how do you know what is really a connection and not a figment of an over-eager imagination?
The irony of starting over with this post after a storm interrupted me! But sometimes starting over seems to plague me. I try to get more steps in, but before I approach better shape it seems like I have to start over. Not a few times. All the time. I try to be better in my vocations and it’s the same way. Every school year. Every Lent or Advent. Et cetera.

I’m more entrepreneurial than I ever would have dreamed. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to do three things: write, cook, and discuss theology. That’s it. I wasn’t even one to daydream about marriage or children. To my mind, I’m a shockingly straightforward, consistent girl. You know what I love? Family, words, food, and theology. But what if I don’t really want to write books? What if, after all this time, I’ve thought of something else instead?!
