About Leigh


I am a Christian who believes in absolute Truth. I am also a supporter of the arts, culture, and free speech.

I blog, write, and talk far too much. I have a lot going on, but somehow, I’m always looking for more to do.

I’d love to talk to you, and I’m always open to feedback. Many other WordPress bloggers have given me helpful tips. You can connect with me over Facebook, and/or Twitter. But I don’t like using Twitter, so use Facebook. If you’re new, here are some HIGHLIGHTS from my blog that I’ve selected.

This blog is for:

Anyone who loves ideas, literature, anecdotes, etc… I have a little of everything for everyone on here. If you don’t like one post, you might like the next one. It changes from day to day, depending on my inspiration. This blog was started as a way to sort through all the thoughts in my head and became a little more important to me than I expected. Journaling just wasn’t cutting it.

Favorite Writers:

Madeleine L’Engle, Lauren Winner, Andrée Seu, Meg Cabot, Sarah Dessen, Terry Goodkind, Margaret Weis, and Tracy Hickman.

Nerdy Fact:

I have an entire bookcase of Star Wars books. Before you judge, my first degree was in English Literature.

Desert Island Five:

  1. The Bible
  2. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
  3. The Love Letters by Madeleine L’Engle
  4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
  5. Faith of the Fallen by Terry Goodkind

Favorite Quotes:

“Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the LORD’s renown,
for an everlasting sign,
that will endure forever.”-Isaiah 55:13

“Deserve Victory. Be justified in your convictions. Be completely committed. Earn what you want and need rather than waiting for others to give you what you desire.” -Terry Goodkind

“That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to understand. Of house-elves and children’s tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.” -Harry Potter

“Do not waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him. If you injure someone you dislike, you will find yourself disliking him more. If you do him a good turn, you will find yourself disliking him less.” -C S Lewis

“It is far too easy to take refuge in our little groups, rather than allowing the Creator to change us as he changed Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” -Madeleine L’Engle

  1. My passion has been sci-fi since I first read “A Wrinkle in Time” in grade school. Okay, I may have a few (okay, quite a few) more of the old sci-fi masters. I belonged to the Sci-Fi Book Club in the seventies and eighties. I reread them periodically and never fail to enjoy them every time.

    Its funny the commonalities we find with others that seem so different a first glance. I also have an English degree. 🙂


  2. Wow, we have a lot in common! What sci-fi writers are your favorites?

    • Lauren,

      Thank YOU for coming over! I am not well-versed in the art of poetry, so I can’t contribute too much. 🙂 I’ve seen you around on Tim’s and Miro’s sites and thought I’d stop by.

      Thank you for the lovely compliment. 🙂
