I'm Back! What I've been up to-

  Hello! How have you been? Today I'm just gonna do a "life post"!

  Reading: Pearl Maiden by H. R. Haggard. Erica, from A Story of a Storyteller recommended it in a post awhile ago, and I'm really enjoying it!

  Participating in: a mug exchange for the first time! (Post on that later!)

  Listening to: Recently, we've been listening to the dramatized version of Pilgrim's Progress. It's really good! I've also been listening to Sing the KJV and some of the Galkin Evangelistic Team's Music. Here's one of their songs:


Enjoying: Truly Beautiful YouTube Channel by Abby Rose!

Rejoicing!! Because my mom's expecting a baby!

Watching: Little House on the Prairie

 Playing: "Amazing Grace" on violin.

I guess that's all for now!! What have YOU been up to???


  1. Well I'm gonna answer the same things you did (except different answers)
    1. Reading Leven Thumps
    2. Participating in a competition
    3. Listening to Karyn Williams (great singer)
    4. Rejoicing for you and because life is good!
    5.Playing "Across The Stars" (Star Wars song) on the piano

    1. Fun! What kind of competition are you in? Aww, thanks!!

  2. That's SO exciting that your mom is expecting a baby! Congratulations to your family!

  3. Sounds like you're having a great time!

    1. Thanks for recommending it! I know I'm taking forever to read it (I don't read much ) but I'm really liking it!

  4. Yay! You're back!!! Welcome back to the blogosphere! ;)
    I love the book "Pearl Maiden"! I've had it for years and I've read it several times. You should also read "Lysbeth". That's by H.R. Haggard too and it's really good. I read that one several times and even my brothers read it!
    Can't wait to see your post on the tea cup exchange! I participated this year too and I had a lot of fun!
    Ooh, I love Pilgrim's Progress! I read the book... I haven't heard any dramatized versions of it though. Where did you get yours from?
    I've heard that Galkin Evangelistic Team song before. I LOVED it! I really want to get into their music more. ;)
    OH MY GOODNESS YOUR MOM IS EXPECTING??? HOW EXCITING!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! You have a lot of siblings, right? Which number will this one be? Children are such a blessing!!!!!
    And yay for LHOTP! ;)
    Sorry, long comment! Haha!

    1. Thanks!😋 That's neat!! Do you have the 1903 or 2003 Pearl Maiden? I'm reading the 2003 one, but maybe one day I'll try the other one!! I've never heard of Lysbeth, but I'll have to look it up!!
      The teacup exchange WAS a lot of fun!! I can't wait to post it either!! Are you going to do a post about it?
      We just rented the Audio Pilgrims Progress from the library, but here's the kind it was:https://answersingenesis.org/store/product/pilgrims-progress-audiobook-edition/?sku=20-5-166

      Thanks!! Yes, we're so excited!! It's #9!
      I love LHOTP!!

      Thanks for your long comment, it was lots of fun to read and answer!!!

    2. I believe I have the 2003 one. It would be fun to read the other one! As it is, I should go back and read the one I have again; after I finish Lord of the Rings that is... ;)
      I don't know yet... I'm thinking I might include pictures of it in like another post that's more of an update on life. We'll see what happens! Did you do both a mug and a teacup or just a teacup?
      I'll have to look up the dramatized audio of Pilgrim's Progress. I love that book!
      Oh wow! #9! How fun! I remember our number 9! I was the only one of us kids up because I put our youngest to sleep while Dad was with Mom and then hung out while Mom was in active labor. Congratulations!!! I'm sure it'll be so fun to have a tiny little baby around! Praying that it's a healthy one!

    3. Oops! I actually just did the mug exchange! Sorry for writing teacup! Which did you do? Or did you do both? That's neat! So did your mom have the baby at home? Thank you so much!!!

    4. Okay, haha! I did both. ;)
      Yup, our 6th kid all the way down through our 10th were home births! Are your parents planning on a home birth or hospital?

    5. Hospital; I think home births seem really neat though! Maybe if I ever have children that's what I'll do!

  5. I'm so happy for y'all!!!! That's so exciting your mom is expecting. It's been awhile since we've written, how are you?
    Lovely post!!!

    1. Thanks!! We're pretty excited!! I'm doing okay, how about you? Did you ever get the last letter I sent you? (The one with the eclipse stamp)

  6. Wow, that’s so exciting that your mom is expecting a baby! Our family absolutely loved the Galkin Evangelistic Team! What’s your favorite song they do?

    Great post!

    1. I know, I'm so excited!! Hmm. I really like "Each Day I Live", and also "Just as I am"! What about you? Thanks!!

  7. Wow, that’s really hard! I love most all of them! “Each day I Live” is also one of my favorites, and “Mercy Tree” is really good.

  8. Congratulations to your mother, Laura!! That is so exciting that she is expecting. I hope she has a safe + healthy pregnancy and delivery!
    Each Day I Live is gorgeous! I am glad you are enjoying the Galkins music.
