In this book we get to see Olive and the Mashables graduate from 8th grade. I decided to move "Kerfuffle" back to book #3 since it takes place during high school. I update almost every day on my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Kristin-N-Sp...). I also delayed the release of "Plunge Into Darkness" because it is still being edited. If you want to be a beta reader for that novel, I suggest you be over 16 as it talks briefly about sexual abuse of a minor.(less)

I also kept a prayer journal where I would write things down in letter form to God, and then I would go back and underline the prayers that were answered. I also think it is easier to write about what God is showing you, if you have the Holy Spirit helping you understand why God is showing you things, and what He wants you to learn. Start off writing for yourself. I think that takes a lot of the pressure off. I would keep a journal. It is a great way to practice writing about God, and also to see how faithful He is to answer our prayers and provide for us over time. I hope that helps :) (less)

“Self-hatred is not in our nature, but self-love is. If we attempt to think logically we might say, well if self-love is pride, then isn’t the opposite of pride equal to self-hate? The short answer is no. Many Christians actively argue that since the opposite of pride is humility, the opposite of self-love must be self-hatred. In order for this to be true, it would mean that humility is the same thing as self-hatred. It is not. Humility means that you put others above yourself. The motivation for this selflessness is not because you hate yourself, but because you love others more than you love yourself. Did Jesus hate Himself? No. Previously we saw Jesus as the ultimate example of humility. If you subscribe to the belief that the opposite of pride must be self-hatred, you are also subscribing to the idea that Jesus died on the cross because He hated Himself. Jesus actually died on the cross because of His intense love for us, not for any other reason.”
Kristin N. Spencer, You Aren't Worthless: Unlock the Truth to Godly Confidence

“God gave me a vision of all the women around me as different types of flowers He has created. He showed me how boring the world would be if every flower (or woman) looked the same. He also showed me a small, delicate, lavender flower next to a full bodied peony. Lavender flowers are beautiful in their own way, and so are peonies. Why compare them at all?”

“If people have no respect for God, no love for their Maker, I would ask the question another way: Why not pillage, rape, persecute and murder? If it feels good, and they can get away with it, why not? If God is dead or does not exist, as these people believe, why are not all things permitted? Why should they restrain themselves? Because it’s just wrong? Because it’s not the way civilized people behave? Because what goes around comes around? Because they’ll end up feeling terrible inside?
Within tidy circles of properly socialized and reasonable people, such appeals can seem like they actually have the power to restrain people from doing what they otherwise feel like doing. But in the real world outside the philosophy seminar room, oppressors frankly don’t care that you think it’s just wrong. Who are you, they ask, to foist your random moral intuition on them? Who are you to tell them or the lords of the Third Reich what civilized people should and should not do? If what goes around tends to come around, then there’s no moral problem, only a practical problem of making sure it doesn’t come around to you. They think, Fine, if being brutal makes you feel terrible inside, then don’t do it. But it makes me feel powerful, alive, exhilarated and masterful, so quit whining — unless you want to try to stop me.
This description of a dark Nietzschean world of self-will — a vacuum devoid of moral authority or spiritual resources for good — used to sen excessively melodramatic to me. But then I got out more. The world is truly full of brutal oppression because humans have rejected their Maker, the source of all goodness, mercy, compassion, truth, justice, and love.”
Gary A. Haugen, Good News About Injustice: A Witness of Courage in a Hurting World

Well, it is seems like the person that wrote it is a Southern Baptist so it won't include anything about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but that doesn't mean it won't be good. I like the topic.
