My confidence is in Fear
This generation has lost the meaning of many words; love is just a feeling, majesty brings to mind nothing but a shining light, joy is equated with mere happiness, and awesome has become a synonym to fantastic- but fear, we have never forgotten the weight of fear. But the Church has abandoned the view of God as a Holy Terror even though the fear of the Lord is repeated time and time again in the...
Girls are often stuck on the idea that all they need or want is just to be “in love” not realizing that all along they have been very much in love. They have been surrounded by it their entire life; family that supported, protected and loved them through the rebelious years, friends that stuck with them through the depression when jr high made you feel worthless, through the roughness...
My favorite thing to do on summer nights is go out alone in the dark and just sit or stand there, waiting for the chill to set in.

Day 9: Least fave male character?
Hm.. Well I hated Shift (the ape from the Last Battle) with a burning and fiery passion… like I hated that guy. But he was the baddy, so you were supposed to hate him. So, after much pondering I decided that Puzzle (the donkey from the same book that dressed up in the lion’s skin) is my least favorite character. When you first meet him I just thought he didn’t have enough brains...
A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into.– Ansel Adams
Day 8: What do you think would be your fave...
Foxes. Talking foxes. Because I love them, and that would be awesome. (sorry, I didn’t have enough time to look into all the creatures in the books & make a decision with a well developed defense, so I went with my first thought.)
Then her face lit up till, for a moment (but of course she didn’t know it), she...– C.S. Lewis (Voyage of the Dawn Treader)
Day 7: Fave female character and why?
Hm, this one is hard because there are not very many female characters to choose from (comparatively). I have to say that I think Susan’s character is one of the most important in the series to me, but she’s not my favorite. I have to say Lucy is my favorite character, I suppose. I know most people think that she’s the best female character because she’s the one we all want...
Day 6: If you were in Edmund’s position, what do...
Honestly, it’s hard for me to say what I would have done because I have a completely different mindset than he does— I’m a girl and I’m the oldest child. So, if i was me in Emdund’s exact position, it probably would have had a different outcome (but if I was written in Edmund’s place, I’ sure Lewis would have a different world waiting and I would have...

Day 5: Fave male character and why?
Puddleglum! Without a doubt, I love this dude. Why? Well, I’ll give you a few reasons. 1. he’s hilarious! He’s always so down, but then he says how all the other marsh-wiggles think he’s much too happy all the time. 2. He is really wise and really cares about the kids, even if they don’t listen to him whenever they should. 3. His holy fear and respect for Aslan is...
Day 4: Least fave female character and why?
My least favorite female character is not, despite popular belief otherwise, Susan. But I’ll explain that later as it ties in with another day. My least favorite female (not including the evil ones- I ‘disliked’ them the most, but they were perfect villains you loved to hate) was Aravis. I don’t remember much from The Horse and His Boy, but I remember she really annoyed me...
The Lion of Judah
I had one of these revelations the other day, right in the middle of a worship service. I was just standing there, singing along when a thought passed through my head; I wanted to show others the majesty of God. Then it hit me- do you ever have one of those moments where you’re really excited and you’re trying to tell your friends something but you can’t put it into words and you feel that you...
In that case, it seems to me that the made-up things are a good deal better...– Puddleglum
On the topic of Draco and Hermione
I don’t know why, but these shipping posts keep coming up on my thread. Now, I haven’t read the HP books, and if that strips me of my authority to an opinion in your eyes, by no means will I ask you to keep reading. But most of my friends, including my twin, have read the series and frequently talk about it. And I have seen the movies. After such, I’ve come to this conclusion: I...
Day 3: Is there any of the films adaptations that...
Yes, most of the new movies made me upset because they lost the spirit of the book by trying too hard to make the characters ‘believable’ by today’s standards and ways of acting. They are characters in a book and… well ugh, that’s enough of that. More to the point, the worst movie by far, in my opinion, was the new release of Prince Caspian. The director himself said...
Day 2; You favorite movie?
C.S. Lewis didn’t want his books made into movies because, at the time, he didn’t see it as possible to capture the fantastical elements and creations in his story on the big screen. He did approve of the film adaptation after seeing a demo reel. I firmly stand behind the idea that the BBC versions, while that did not have the special effects quality, captured the spirit and the story...
Day 1: Your fave book?
The Last Battle- I cried, we all cried, but it was all tied together and it was beautiful. My second favorite is the Silver Chair (sorry I couldn’t help myself)

Day 3: Is there any of the films adaptations that have made you angry because they’ve ignored important parts of the book? Day 4: Least fave female character and why? Day 5: Fave male character and why? Day 6:… Haha, stumbled upon a 30 day challenge I can actually do :P
Whenever I see SUPER SUPER fans online- the ones who say their friends will never understand them, or that the characters of whatever were better childhood friends, the ones who get lost in love with fictions and stories, the ones who spend all their time shipping characters or dwelling on the past of the books. Reading all those superfan posts always made me extremely sad- and for the longest...

30 days of Austen
I have, recently, had a loss of things to do on tumblr. And I thought, since it has taken up much of my reading and at home movie experience, that I might venture to take the 30 days of Jane Austen challenge. Then I looked at it… and I realized that I will never be a super fan of anything, no matter how many characters I like, I could never be so well versed in any general series to know so...
If I could, I’d be a wanderer- so a traveler I will be.
