Book Review: The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino

Ok. so. Consider this the opening of a new door to something previously untouched on my blog. I have long considered adding some book reviews and bible studies to my page, even if only as a way for me to summarize what I personally got out of them so I can reflect later. I finally…

Mission Adventurism: Roadtrip pt. 1 “Camping in Custer”

As the summer approaches, I have decided that I need to hunker down and finish the Mission Adventurism Series, that, to my shame, is composed of one mere and insufficient intro. But, here is my attempt to remedy that situation. Starting with the first adventure of the summer of 2016. The tale of this past…

Mission Adventurism: Achieved (intro)

Dear Disney Channel Screenwriters . . .

When life gets heavy, so does my journal…

Vern’s, Bellvue, and the Ventures of Riv and Rio

Oh what a lovely time it was gallivanting with @rivetingtalesblog yesterday. Filled with a countless number of breathtaking sights, yesterday’s adventure also gave us the chance to come up with anonymous names so that we can keep our secret little blogs… secrets! Instead of using our blog names to refer to each other in stories…

Well hello.

Ahh adventure. What a magical thing it is. We all crave it. We all search for it. And here I am. Embarking on so many new adventures. No, you silly goose. This blog isn’t my new adventure. Not quite. In a surprising turn of events, I, a young heart living nestled in the wake of…
