My name is Madelyn Canada and I love books, beauty, and beholding Christ. I’ve been writing odds and ends since I was in Kindergarten and this little corner of the web is where I occasionally share some of the things I’ve been reading, learning, writing, and enjoying. To read the story behind the name, hop on over here.
I’m a member of a Reformed Baptist church near my home in the Midwest. My church family is just that, family, and I love them to bits.
I’m a nanny and love my little dears deeply. It’s for them I write short stories about the brave knight Sir Dwain during their summer breaks. I’m quite certain they teach me far more than I teach them.
I love good stories and am passionate about encouraging readers to spend their time (and books) wisely, seeking to read stories that will challenge, encourage, edify, and deepen a love for all that is noble, right, pure, and lovely. Some of my favorite authors are Elizabeth Prentiss, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and C.S. Lewis. I’m always reading and believe with great conviction with the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society, that “reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
I am currently studying Early Childhood Education while living with my ever so Southern family and dog named Gilbert. I seek to faithfully live the life God has given me and share the goodness and grace of Jesus with others as I do so, may He be glorified through what you find here and may the Gospel go forth calling sinners home and spurring saints on as they journey heavenward.
Below are several blogs I follow.
From books to music to solid Scriptural encouragement, Glenna has you covered. Her album Hold Me Fast is one of my favorites. You can find a link to purchase it on her blog.
Tim Challies is a Canadian author, speaker, and blogger. When you follow his blog, you’ll get his daily A la Carte in your inbox. It is a wonderful assortment of daily articles from the web on current events, theological studies, and general news from a Christian worldview.
Abigail is a long distance kindred spirit whom I was acquainted with via Twitter. Since then I’ve always enjoyed her brave outlook on life and constant reminder to have courage and press on. I’m certain you’ll be blessed by her writing as I continually am.
Cassie write about books, theology, and Christ. Her blog is thought provoking and delightful, do hop on over and read some of her content. You’ll not be disappointed.
