Beyond the Blog #1


It’s been a while.

Tomorrow’s the 1st day of November, which is also the 1st day of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

And guess what? I’m gonna do it. Even though I’m a full-time college student, part-time intern with a public policy organization, president of a school club, and senator for my school’s Student Government Association, I’m gonna do it.

By jolly, I’m going to write a novel in a month.

Follow along if you want to discover what it’s like to write “beyond the blog.”



Featured Blog: Against Doubt


It’s been a while.

While I’m still taking some time off from blogging, I wanted to take a moment and share a fantastic blog created by a great friend of mine. It’s called Against Doubt, and its purpose is to equip Christians to defend their faith against lofty arguments and everyday doubts we will face.

They just released part 2 of a series on the Resurrection of Jesus, and I highly recommend checking it out HERE.

Be sure to subscribe to them for more great articles, and in the near future I’ll update you all on what I plan to do with my blogging.


The Big Surprise: Ta-da!

“As iron sharpens iron,

Merry Christmas! Today is the day we celebrate Jesus being born into our dark world to bring it light. Mary gave birth to him.

I feel like I’m birthing an amazing child, too. (Although not as amazing as Jesus.) Continue reading The Big Surprise: Ta-da!


As I mentioned in my previous post, I want to do more and say less. I want to use actions over words.

But I feel like keeping a daily blog forces me to come up with way too many words than needed. Believe me, I love writing, and I like forcing myself to be creative every day. But I’m losing content; I’m doing less than I’m writing. 

So here’s the deal: after much prayer and consideration, I’m only going to post weekly on Mondays. 

That’s right, one post per week.

This way, I’ll be able to do more and then write about it instead of thinking more and not doing anything about it. 

Make sense? Good.

See you on Monday. 😉
