    Have You Ever Wanted To Live In A Story?

    I have loved to read all my life. I particularly enjoy action/adventure and SciFi books with exciting plots and evil villians. However, I continue to find myself intensely wishing that I was living in the stories. Chasing the bad guys, visiting different worlds, etc are all...

    I joined this experience group long ago,

    but my addiction is growing! In the last year I have read the entire Ante-Nicene library. It was terribly addictive as it changed my theology. Of course, addictions are not healthy, but this one has helped me become a better wife, mum, and follower of my God. Whenever I face...

    I Read Too Much.

    Most of the time when I say I read too much, people think I'm bragging. I'm not, I'm serious. If you're reading this, you probably know what I mean. When I was five I learned to read, and I loved it. Back then it was a good thing to curl up with a book. I read more than most five...
