Hey there! I’m Madelyn!
I like to consider myself a collector of stories, rather than a book reviewer, or literary critic, or even avid reader. (Though story collecting entails all of those things!) This blog is where you’ll find my favorite stories, my thoughts on those stories, my chats with the creators of those stories, and some random musings that stem from those stories.
I’m a born again believer in Christ Jesus, who is day by day made more aware of my great need for a Savior, and a great Savior for my need. He who began a good work is faithful to complete it, and how I long for the day when there will be no more sin and sadness when I stand with my Lord!
I’m on the board at our small town’s Historical Society where I serve as newsletter editor. Slowly but surely I am working my way to a Bachelor of Arts in Church History.
Summer of 2019 I hosted The Corner Shelf Summer Book Club which was loads of fun, but needs a little revising before doing it again. For all materials related to that book club click here.
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.
Lindsey does thorough reviews on books for girls. If you are wanting to find clean, fun reads for girls between 11 and 19, her blog is the place to go! She is the sweetest! Her YouTube channel is loads of fun too. Lots of book talk, fangirling, and joy!
If you live in the Triangle area of NC, and are looking for portraits, branding, or a fun family photo shoot, this is where you need to go! Michal has been one of my best friends since middle school, and not only will you get fantastic photos, you’re guaranteed to have a blast with her while doing so. Her laughter is contagious.
