on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

This is Who I AM!

For those of you new to my blog, and those of you just getting to know me, and for those of you who just want to know more about me, I thought I'd share this bio on me, originally posted on KOF. It also contains a sort-of picture of me. :D Here it is~


My name is Kylie. I am a twelve-year-old homeschooled girl who loves Jesus and wants to make loving him the center of my life. I’ve been a Christian for 9 years, and although the road is tough, I wouldn't change it for the world.

I am a very avid fan of the Chronicles of Narnia, and also C.S. Lewis, because of the tremendous allegory in the series. I've been homeschooled all my life and absolutely love it! I love to write, mostly fictional stories, and I especially love it when I write with my friends. I am hoping to be published eventually, perhaps in Christian magazines, and my dream is to get at least one book published.

I love to read, especially Christian fantasy and historical fiction ~ any book with a great plot, really! I love the pioneer, colonial, and renaissance eras, and bonnets, aprons, and medieval dresses & capes all have a place in my world. I consider myself an "old-fashioned" girl since those sorts of things appeal to me. I also enjoy photography, knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, sewing, HTML, learning to experiment with graphics, and also fiddling around on my acoustic Fender guitar that the Lord blessed me with.

My desire for KOF [and my other blogs] is to encourage kids in their walk for God and set them on fire for Jesus!

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
