“There are no chance encounters with God.”
Kristy Cambron, The Butterfly and the Violin

“This, child, is our worship. To live and survive and play to God from the depths of our souls. This is the call that binds us. When we worship in the good times, it brings God joy. But worship in the midst of agony?” Her tongue clicked against the roof of her mouth and she shook her head. It was an action befitting the wisdom of the words she’d chosen. “That is authentic adoration of our Creator. An orchestra will worship together, as one body. As one song. A family must do no less.”
Kristy Cambron, The Butterfly and the Violin

“Because I believe that this too shall be used by God. Somehow, this story He is writing will live on.”
Kristy Cambron, The Butterfly and the Violin

“That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you onto another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive—all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.”
Annie Barrows, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“From His eternal perspective, it's tolerable to allow our temporary dreams to fall apart.”
Jennie Allen, Anything: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul

“There is divine beauty in learning... To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you.”
Elie Wiesel

“Shut your eyes and see.”
James Joyce

“You can make anything by writing.”
C.S. Lewis
