Title Change

It's fall, in case you haven't noticed. At least, it is in this part of the world.

And fall is a time of changes, so I decided to change my title. Something shorter, you know. Something swingy. So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. You are now reading "Christian Writing - Teenage Style". Today, I will be reviewing a new discovery of mine, The Christy Miller Collection, by Robin Jones Gunn. So this is a little stuff for the ladies. Suck it up, peeps.

The Christy Miller Collection

by Robin Jones Gunn

The Christy Miller Collection is a series of books that, ultimately, turned me over to God. There are twelve books in the series, with three books in each volume. See here to my right and above, Volume One. Sorry it's so blurry, my computer is messed, and I wanted to make the picture bigger. Christy Miller is about a girl named Christy Miller. There is also, after that, the Sierra Jensen Series, which is another twelve books (I haven't got there yet) and then the Christy and Todd: College Years trilogy.
Christy Miller goes through lots of things: a BIG move, jealousy, becoming a Christian, falling in love, giving, tough friendships and true friendships. She's a girl we can all truly relate to, except, of course, she lives in CALIFORNIA and she has the best boyfriend (Todd) ever. Todd is, without a doubt, THE best character in the series. Unfortunately, Todd is not real and is truly perfect for Christy. The best lines in the books are him saying, "Later, Chris," and jutting his chin up.
My favourite book of the Christy Miller Series, so far, is Book Five, Island Dreamer, when Christy, Todd, and Christy's best friend from Wisconsin, Paula, go to Maui for Christy's sixteenth birthday. By FAR the cutest and most romantic of all the books.
If you are a girl, I HIGHLY recommend the Christy Miller Series. Thanks to my friend Maxine for getting me into them. Without them, I wouldn't have turned my heart over to God when I did.
Today's Bible chapter (my new Bible has a reading plan, which I am following): Mark 2.
Good luck in school everyone!
luv, blessings,

Haven't seen any updates on your blog lately, Emma. So I thought you might be interested in doing a meme of seven bookish things about you. I'd be interested in reading it! If you have time, you can see the rules and a sample on my post:


The Love Chapter

"If I speak in tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing."

- 1 Corinthians 13 1-3, Study Bible, NRSV
