We are quite the bunch of budding authors! I've written several short stories, many poems and a couple of songs (nothing published, ofcourse). My husbands been after me to try and get published for years, but everything I write feels so personal to me that I balk at sharing it with the general populace. I'd love to write a novel, that's my plan once my kids are grown...which will be about 12 more years...maybe I better start a little sooner. One of my all time favorite books is 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. I would love to write something like that, something simple yet poignant and beautiful.
"Every noble impulse, every unselfish expression of love; every brave suffering for the right; every surrender of self to something higher than self; every loyalty to an ideal; every unselfish devotion to principle; every helpfulness to humanity; every act of self-control; every fine courage of the soul, undefeated by pretense or policy, but by being, doing, and living of good for the very good’s sake—that is spirituality." -David O. McKay
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
