The Greatest Miracle I Know

My personal testimony of healing and a life transformation.

I want to share with you a true story about a three year old boy who lived in a small farming community in Texas. Brownfield Texas comes by it’s name honestly. Brown fields are everywhere. If you have never been in a dust storm in Brownfield Texas you know very little about dust, dirt and sand storms. I remember as a child playing outside and the wind was not blowing very hard, but on...Read On

Good Girl Guides

A group of young Girl Guides get a little out of their depth in their rush to grow up too fast.

“You girls have work to do.” The six Girl Guides reluctantly sloped away from the fence that separated our pitch from the neighbouring one where a group of scouts kicked a football about. They walked past me to the QM tent where I was about to set them preparing lunch and one of them, Gemma, shot me a glare. “You won’t be giving me that look when those boys start giving you trouble.”...Read On

Sachertorte

Cass was lying on her bed, looking up at the ceiling. It was summer, and she’d been looking forward to it, but this year, there was nothing to do. She heard her parents’ footsteps as they came up the stairs, so she slid under her duvet. The door opened and in walked her father, followed by her mother. Let me take a minute to tell you a bit about Cass. She was a seven year old girl who...Read On

My Omni

a story about a girl and her horse

The first time I met her, I followed a herd of adults out into a green pasture. I ignored their dull talking. We were introduced, and her twenty-some-year-old daughter was there. Omni was pretty, even though she was old; all of her hair had turned white. She was swollen with her pregnancy. Beholding one of her brown eyes, I remember sensing warm, intelligent, gentleness, and feeling a...Read On

A pleasant surprise

Mary and Jessica planned their trip, but they weren't ready for what they got along the way.

We felt we were doing the right thing; earlier on we had motivated ourselves, patted each other on the back, helped each other pack, but as the day wore on with the constant drone of the unbearably loud car engine in our ears, the sweat dripping down our faces, threatening to enter our eyes, we’d begun to rethink our plan, our strategy. We’d begun to wonder if it was such a spectacular plan...Read On

Dinner that night was very quiet. The girls seemed subdued and...Read On

Spinning Round and Round

Won't somebody make me feel alive and shatter me~ Lindsey Stirling

It was dark now. I was but a forgotten memory, stuck playing a lullaby and spinning around in circles. I gazed at the moon and the stars, the cracks in the shattered mirror distorted the image and made it seem less real. Once I stood tall and proud on the shelf. The music chimed brightly and I danced my heart out. The song was as light as my feet, as I delicately spun. My heart soared,...Read On

Rick followed Jane with his eyes. He was sitting on the bus as it was going to school that morning and Jane had just boarded.

Another time traveling story (Chapter 1 part 1)

Have you ever wondered why a pineapple is called so when it is neither pine nor apple? Why didn't Tarzan have a beard? Why do toasters always have a setting that burns toast to an unimaginable crisp in which no decent human being would ever want to eat? Who made the law that eighteen is of legal age? If x-ray vision is the ability to see through all things, then wouldn't you see...Read On

Marcia and Naomi had returned to their room after a final session with the makeshift orchestra before summer school started.

A grimm story brought to life

The next morning Snow-White woke to a slight cough in her throat. She then noticed the frigid breeze coming from her open window. She got up, her white night dress swaying in the wind.

At the same moment...Read On

A New Beginning, Her New Beginning

I walk into the garden of the small chapel by the old school hesitantly. How long has it been since the last time I was here? After mentally counting the years, I figure out that it was almost twelve years. As I take a few steps towards the door, I can feel my heart beat racing. I push the door and find myself inside. I look around me. Twelve years and nothing has changed; the pale blue...Read On

To Be a Heartbreaker (For the First Time)

This is what it feels like to break someone's heart.

Here I am, sitting on a large bus of high-school students (with a few middle-schoolers thrown in), as we are riding back from a church trip. My heart is heavy, and all I can do is stare out the window at the trees that line this Alabama highway, and think about what I’ve done. Sitting next to me is one of my best friends, who is the closest guy friend that I have. I won’t tell you his...Read On

Marcia feels the weight of her abilities on her shoulders from paranormal things on the island.

When the three girls were ready, they left the barracks and walked to the dining hall entrance. They joined a group of their classmates, who waited, chatting about the night before and sleeping in the barracks.

Cricket Lone Wolf Part 17

Daria walks and finds her music. Stefan reunites with Marcia and Naomi.

Soft sunlight leaked through the shades covering the windows of Daria's room. It softened her appearance and almost made her look angelic, as she slept. With her leg suspended, she could not roll around, as she normally did while sleeping. The light coming in the window came from sparkling reflections off the newly fallen snow. Daria moaned in discomfort, as she groggily lay trying to...Read On

Another time traveling story (Chapter 1 part 3)

“What do you mean a hunch?” I asked skeptically. Daddy motioned me toward the couch. It was a black leather couch that I had known since childhood and despite the many trials of spills and scratches it had gone through it showed little to no wear. I sat down, Daddy following. “You know how Granny is always talking about our Egyptian ancestry?” he asked. “Yes, every chance she can get.”...Read On

What is an Orphan? Chapter One

The rain was cold against my skin, as if I was covered in water that was clinging to me to form icicles. It seemed to get worse as I walked the two mile stretch of driveway up to my mother's house. You would think that after the last three winters of making this long hike, the cold weather would seem almost natural and not affect me as much. But the cold never got easier to deal with, neither...Read On

To Write a Story

A rather dark story I wrote at 5am, after being up all night. It was a rough time.

Brush, brush, brush those teeth. Feel the pangs of hunger. Ignore them. Get to class late. Sleep. Go home. Sleep. Eat dinner. Sleep. Sleep, sleep, sleep. Can’t sleep. Can never sleep.

No Control

My beginning: No control. Outside the window, the cold wind is howling and whipping back forth. Inside, deafening electronic music is pounding while dozens of drunken college kids slam their heads and blow their fists in the air. Steaming red lights beam into the room as half-drunk girls sip from their red cups and drift their eyes across the room, trying to latch on to something. Inside,...Read On
