Hi friends, I’m Madelyn!
I’ve loved good stories since I was a little girl, and when I was seven years old, the Greatest Story ever told changed my life. By the grace of God I was made aware of my sin at a young age and Jesus Christ saved my soul. Since then, telling others about Him and the marvelous work He has done in making a way for sinners to become saints is my greatest passion.
That is why I write.
There’s an old hymn by Kate Hankey with the familiar chorus:
Tell me the old, old story; Tell me the old, old story, Tell me the old, old story Of Jesus and His love.
It sums up what I hope to spend my days writing about. I need to hear the old, old Story every day, and in a weary world like ours, perhaps you do to?
When I’m not writing, I work as a tutor, study Early Childhood Education, trip over my own feet, and strive to faithfully live the life God has given me. I hold to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith and am a member of a Reformed Baptist Church in southern Ohio.
This blog is simply a collection of my reflections and thoughts on how Jesus changes the way I live, think, and tell His story. I pray that by God’s grace, you’ll be encouraged by something you find here.
May Christ be glorified, the saints edified, and the old, old Story told time and time again.
Welcome friends, I’m glad you’re 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.
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 is another far away friend who writes 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.
