Who Am I?

(The question of the ages.)

A young Christian woman, seeking to turn over a new page in the story of her life.  I like to think of myself as a flower living for and blossoming under the sun of God’s sunshine for His glory.

I am an aspiring voice artist.

I like to read aloud, learn about all sorts of things (improve my mind), make home, cook, work on my 11-year ongoing genealogy research, journal, and shop at garage sales, thrift stores and used book sales.

I enjoy Moody Radio, the 1920’s, jazz, illustrating my sermon notes, ice cream, Masterpiece Theatre Classic, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Raavi Zacharias, C. S. Lewis, designing the atmosphere of a room, and America’s Test Kitchen.

I like to think deeply sometimes, but not too much to risk being stuffy.  I like to keep private as much as possible, which is why you don’t my real name or see my picture.

No, I’m not really An Authority.  I’m not a librarian, am not a teacher or professor, didn’t go to college.  I’m just a booklearner, since all I know has been gained through books and experience.  But I thought it would be fun to create something interesting about something I love.

Genres I Like:

Fiction: The oldie-but-goodie classics; little known classics; Christian fiction; children’s literature.

I like adventure, historical fiction, mystery, spy thrillers, fantasy, sometimes romance (though I pick and choose with care).

I love books that make me feel like I’m in some other world.  I like the ones, where just holding the book of an undiscovered adventure in your hands gives you goosebumps.

Non-fiction:  Christian self-help, how-to’s, histories, cookbooks, arctic adventures.

I sometimes do volunteer reading for Librivox.org.  You can visit my personal catalog here.  I am a bit shy about sharing them, since I hate how my earliest recordings sound.  I guess we all get better with time, and I enjoy learning how to improve.  The main thing is to have fun!

    Hi there!
    My name is Gwen. I have been searching the internet for a parental review of ”THE LADY VANISHES ”2013 version. Yours is the only one I have come across. I’m looking for a clean movie for my husband and myself. Is there anything to be concerned about [sex, nudity, language, profanity, etc..]?
    Thankyou so much!

      Thanks for commenting! It’s been a while since I’ve seen this film, so I’m sorry I can’t remember all the fine details. But I don’t remember anything majorly offensive to me. That being said, everyone’s movie standards differ. No sex or nudity, but some heavy kissing. I will refer you over to another movie review site that I trust (written by a Christian woman), and her review will probably give you more details you are looking for. Plus, you may find some other good movies she recommends! See below:
