The Writing World Tag, Created By Me!

Hi guys! I just got a random idea for a tag! I call it the Writing World Tag, because I can’t think of anything better. 😉

And of course I had to make the button punny. 😀

 

Well, here we go. XD

 

~ T H E  R U L E S ~

 

  • Thank the person that tagged you and link to their website
  • Post the rules
  • Answer your tagger’s questions
  • Share your two favorite writing tips and where you got them from
  • Share two random story/WIP ideas you’ve never shared before (It would be cool to include covers, but you don’t have to) (And also they don’t have to be ideas you’re ever going to turn into anything)
  • But don’t spoil them for us 😉
  • Tag five people
  • Let the people you tag know that they have been tagged

~ S I N C E  I T ‘ S  M Y  T A G ,  I  H A V E  T O  D O  I T ~

 

No one nominated me, because I created it. 😉

 

I just posted the rules. ^ (It took me way too long to find the ^ XD)

 

There are no questions for me to answer, so I’m just going to answer the ones I’m asking my tagees (wow that’s not even a word. :/ Is now.)

 

~ Q U E S T I O N S  F O R  M E ~

 

  1. What is the first story you remember making up?
  2. How and when was (were) your current WIP(s) inspired?
  3. When did you “get serious” about writing, if you know what I mean?
  4. What made you decide to write your current WIP and actually publish it?
  5. What has been your biggest accomplishment in writing so far?

 

~ M Y  A N S W E R S ~

 

  1. Ummm… I’m pretty sure… It was The Moodys. It was inspired by The Moody Family Series by Sarah Maxwell (Here’s the first book). Basically, it just followed the lives of a Christian family. Same characters as Sarah Maxwell’s books. Same setting. Really, it was pretty boring, and it went on from the time we got the first book (I think I was five or six) to when I was like, eight or something. I whispered it to myself every night, making it up as I went along. I never told anyone because I was too embarrassed. 🙂
  2. I don’t know how or when The Raven and the Sparrow was inspired, but What Do I Even Call This was inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song on March 8th, 2018. More info here.
  3. Uhhh… I was… I think twelve? Maybe even ten. Yeah. I’m just gonna say ten. One night I was silently telling myself one of my stories (not the Moodys) that had gone on for absolutely YEARS without anyone knowing (embarrassed again), when I realized I had completely forgotten about over half of my characters. So I got up and wrote down some names and went back to bed, and the next day I got up the nerve to tell my little brother about the story. Then I thought, hey, why not make this a book? So I did… But that story’s currently on hold. Like too many others. I’ve already got myself busy for years and the ideas just keep coming. XD
  4. Umm… Actually… I don’t remember. I think the parable of the talents in the Bible showed me, hey girl, get up and do something. XD
  5. 0_0 Oh, probably this blog. How embarrassing. Well actually, I haven’t been writing anything that’s actually good for that long, so maybe not. 😉

 

Now for my writing tips. 😀

 

  1. Write down every single idea you get, along with the date and time the idea was formed, no matter how dumb it seems. It could turn into something. Yes it’s weird, but trust me, if you’re like me and absolutely LOVE to be precise about things like this, you’ll thank me later. I got this tip from MA VERY OWN BRAIN. Yeah baby. 😉
  2. Don’t just read books. Observe. Learn from the author of the book. How does the book make you feel? Why? Do you love it, think it’s okay, or do you hate it? Why? How could you apply this to your own writing? I got this tip from Madi.

 

Boy, I hate choosing favorites.

 

Now for my random ideas! Oh boy, which ones should I choose? XD XD XD

 

  1. What Grief Did to Me — Tyler is the son of two superheroes who work for the government. He used to be a superhero, too, but now things are changing. You see, Tyler’s parents were killed two years ago, all because of one little boy named Hale. For a long time Tyler has been holding in all his emotions. Now he’s about to open the floodgates–and all of his sorrow and anger will fall on Hale. (Yes, this is Christian. Very. Yes, quite Christian. XD So is the next one.)
  2. The Fire King — Chance, a teenager from Hawaii, goes on a long-distance boat trip and gets stranded on an island. Well, people live on this island, and they believe in this odd legend, so when one of the dudes sees him start a fire, he runs off to tell the village. Then the islanders basically kidnap Chance and proclaim him the Fire King when he proves he can indeed “make fire.” (Yes, it was… Kind of… Inspired by that Ice Age movie. I think it’s called The Meltdown or something. XD)

 

And now

 

It is time

 

To reveal

 

Who I tagged!

 

That was very weird and random…

 

Anyhow, here you are!

 

~ I  T A G ~

 

  1. Madi! Of course, what did you expect? XD
  2. Enni!
  3. Olive!
  4. Ms. Laura Beth!
  5. And Tess!

 

And now I shall repeat my questions, because why not?

 

~ M Y  Q U E S T I O N S  F O R  Y ‘ A L L ~

 

  1. What is the first story you remember making up?
  2. How and when was (were) your current WIP(s) inspired?
  3. When did you “get serious” about writing, if you know what I mean?
  4. What made you decide to write your current WIP and actually publish it?
  5. What has been your biggest accomplishment in writing so far?

 

And that wraps it up for today! XD Wear your seat belt, hug somebody, and have a great rest of the day.

The First Week of–Wait a Second Not the First Week… Umm… Just… An Update on The Raven and the Sparrow. :) (+Snippets)

Yeah, sorry for the three-mile long title. I just… Didn’t know what else to call it. 🙂 Sorry not sorry.

 

I haven’t been timing how long I’ve been outlining/brainstorming/structuring/whatindawerlddoicalldising, so I’m just going to… I don’t know… Tell you what I’m doing and shove snippets down your poor throat. >:)

 

Have fun.

 

Snippets are in blockquotes, like this. 

 

So, I read a book by David Morrell (Lessons From a Lifetime of Writing) talking about writing, and I found something I thought was cooler than outlining, so I’m using it. He didn’t really name the method, so I’ll call it… Talking to Myself.

 

Okay fine, Lauretsville, FL. Is your mind made up? 

No, it’s quite real. 

SERIOUSLY. 

 

Yayyy I made a decision! 

 

As you can see, I have quite a bit of fun with this technique. 😉 (Okay, that second one wasn’t from a Talking to Myself, but whatever.)

 

Basically what it is is a written conversation with yourself. Exactly what it sounds like. XD

 

Rule #1: Don’t be serious (Morrell didn’t actually say that). I’m pretty much never serious in my conversation with myself. And apparently I’m really mean to me. :/

 

Rule #2: Ask yourself a lot of questions, especially “Why?” and “So what?” (Yes, Morrell said that.) I ask questions, but probably not enough, and I fall pretty short on “Why?” and “So what?” But I’m working on it. 🙂

 

Where is this story set? Have you thought about it at all? 

Uhh… Not really, actually. The state of Florida. 

What city? 

Supercallafragialisticexbiallidocious, FL. 

 

(I know, I spelled Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious wrong. Whatever.)

 

The idea is to figure out your story without the boring outline. Nothing is decided; it’s only a big pile of random ideas. If you get an idea, write it down, no matter how stupid or how much sense it makes. Explore everything thoroughly. See what works and what doesn’t. Also make sure you don’t have any plot holes. Those are annoying (from what I’ve heard. Yippee! Lots of rewrites!).

 

I like the bombs idea, though. 

I figured. 

 

So that’s a short description of what I’m currently doing. And now, because I love snippets, it’s time for a snippet spree!

 

What’s a snippet spree? Glad you asked. It’s where I machine-gun fire snippets at you until you pass out. >:) (Just kidding, just kidding.) Good luck surviving!

 

Goodness, I’m so indecisive! I’ve had this one ending in mind since the inception of this idea, and I just recently came up with another one, and NOW I CAN’T DECIDE BETWEEN THE TWO. HALP. 

 

I have names for my characters. Raven, Sparrow, Pablo, Jacob, Jesse, Singapore, Ican’tremembertheothergirl’sname, and so on and so forth. I have a title. The Raven and the Sparrow. I kinda know what I want to happen, but what I want to happen isn’t fitting well with the Christian part. 

 

I have one simple word that refutes all of that. 

What’s that? 

Jesse. 

 

Why in the wide world would they go to church? 

Simple. Family. 

Their mom and dad aren’t Christians. And I was thinking about their aunt and uncle. 

 

But are they alone? >:) 

Huh? 

 

Wow. Those summaries were super profesh. 

 

Okay, well, what do you want to happen at the beginning of the story? 

Ah, yes, the beginning. A very good place to start… 

FOCUS. ANSWER. 

 

Okay, we’ve got setting. Let’s talk about the characters. Who’s the main antagonist? 

Jesse Hartley, of course. 

Yes, yes. What’s Jesse’s plan? 

 

Do you want to add to that? 

What would I add? 

Like maybe that’s just what he wants people to think. 

 

Aha! I like where this is going! And it’s almost 22:00, so good night. 

Okay, good night. 

 

After that one I just wrote down ideas without the conversation with myself:

 

First part a = Not very Christian b/c Raven is worldly, rebellious brat but his aunt and uncle take him and Sparrow to church 

 

First part c = still not very Christian but Raven is distraught because ******************************************************************************* HEHE SPOILERS 

First part d = Still not very Christian *************************** HAHA SPOILERS ********************************************************************** EEEHEHE MORE SPOILERS 

 

a. intro 

b. show how bratty they are 

c. Mom and Dad are sick of it so they get sent off on ship 

d. Even more bratty 

 

Wow that’s a long book. 

 

Idea 1 is a little more appealing to me. I think I’ll take Idea 1. 

 

Aaaaannnnd the snippet spree is over.

 

HALLELUJAH YOU’RE SAYVED.

 

For now.

 

Very soon, I will come back with an update on What Do I Even Call This, and THERE WILL BE MORE SNIPPET SHOVING. HEHEHE. And then hopefully I’ll be more regular with my Talking to Myselfing, starting Saturday.

 

So until the dreaded next time,

–K

 

P.S. I revamped my site ’cause I didn’t like the other theme 😛

Nothing Special Chapter 1

Art: Valentina Rota.
Design: Pretty much by me, but I used the Storybird book writer thingy to make it. 😉 

 

Nothing Special, Chapter 1

 

My name is Phara, and I have a strange ability. I really like it, especially because I love romance. I’ve never told anyone about it, though (not even my parents), because I’m afraid no one will believe me.

Basically, I see two kinds of strings. I’ve given them names so I don’t confuse myself. I call them soul strings and love strings.

Soul strings are pretty simple. A soul string is a transparent purple string that connects you to your soul mate. Which seems a little bit pointless to me, because of the love strings.

Love strings are a little more complicated. This type of string appears when someone has a crush on another person. It has two halves—one for each person—and the halves change color depending on a person’s feelings for the other.

If you don’t have a crush on the other person, your half is blue. If you do, it’s green. If you like them enough to court them and maybe consider marrying them, it’s yellow. If you pine for them so much that you actually truly want to marry them, it’s orange. If you’re madly in love with them and it’s going to stay that way forever, it’s red. If neither one has a crush on the other, the string disappears.

Unlike soul strings, one person can have multiple love strings attached to them. Either because they’re weird and they crush on multiple people at once, or because multiple people are crushing on them at once. Usually (at least in my case), it’s the latter.

I don’t really understand why so many people like me. I’m not even that pretty. I’m just a shy, red-haired, green-eyed, fair-skinned girl with glasses and a few freckles on her left cheek who never wears makeup, nail polish, or jewelry except for a locket. I’m nothing special. Nothing special at all.

And yet, when I moved to my new school, I’ve got so many strings attached to my heart that practically everything below chest level is tinted blue.

Book Review — The Maze Runner by James Dashner

So.

I recently had a birthday party where my two BFFs and I went to the cosmetology school where a church friend of ours is schooling at (I got my hair dyed! XD XD). After a literal nine hour appointment there (my hair took forever because it’s long), we decided to go to Goodwill for no reason in particular. There, I looked at the books (what did you expect?), and I found an interesting one called The Maze Runner. So I read it. Here I will be reviewing it. Enjoy. 😉

 

The Summary

“IF YOU AIN’T SCARED, YOU AIN’T HUMAN. 

“When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers–boys whose memories are also gone.

“NICE TO MEET YA, SHANK. WELCOME TO THE GLADE. 

“Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out–and no one’s ever made it through alive.

“Everything is going to change. 

“Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever.
“And the message she delivers is terrifying.

“REMEMBER. SURVIVE. RUN.” 

 

Incredibly dramatic, I know.

 

The (Kind Of) Serious, Unbiased, SPOILER-FREE Review

The slang they use in this book is… Weird and funny. Only a few pages into the book, somebody got called shuck-face, and I died laughing. There’s nothing bad or gory in it, but there are these weird alien robot thingys that look like spider/giant brain/alien hybrids in the movie… And if you get stung by one there’s this odd thing called the Changing that you go through that makes you crazy for awhile, and some of the characters do get stung. A little strange. But it doesn’t get too descriptive about anything. People do get killed, but again no unnecessary details (but it does mention blood. If that’s a problem).

 

The Biased, Also SPOILER-FREE Review

In the words of Rhino the Hamster (I CAN’T FIND A MEME FOR IT GRR SOMEBODY MAKE ONE TESS I’M TALKIN’ TO YOU), “FULLY. AWESOME,” or “BE-AWESOME,” if you know what I’m sayin’. You get me?

 

Bolt, people.

 

It’s Bolt.

 

Whatever. I guess no one shares my passion for Pixar.

 

BUT SERIOUSLY. THE MAZE RUNNER IS FULLY AWESOME. BE-AWESOME. THE FULLY AWESOME BE-AWESOMENESS. GO READ IT.

 

RiGhT nOw. Go BuY iT aNd ReAd It. YoU kNoW yOu WaNt To.

 

Welp, that’s all for today!

Why Minecraft Lag is (Sometimes) Cool

Most of the time (Especially when in a life-or-death situation) Minecraft lag is ANNOYING and I wish it didn’t exist. Like, WHY DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN? GAAHHH!!

 

But sometimes (and this is why I love playing Minecraft on the laptop), lag is REALLY awesome. I’m not really sure why I think it’s so cool, but I do.

 

The lag I’m talking about is when you’re looking around and the chunks don’t load fast enough, so it’s almost like the ground isn’t there. You can still walk on it, it’s just invisible.

 

Okay… What’s so cool about that?

 

Glad you asked. 😉

 

Here, I’ll show you some pictures.

 

GRR IT’S TINY AGAIN)

 

Hmm… That one’s not as good.

 

Here, this one’s better:

>:( 

 

Let’s zoom in.

I’m gonna kill it. 

XD XD XD ISN’T IT SO COOL?! XD XD XD

 

Here’s two even better ones:

>:( >:( >:( 

I LOVE THOSE ONES. They are the BEST (so far).

 

What’s cool about it is you can see all the cave systems. In survival. XD XD

 

Yeah, I know, that last one was in creative, BUT STILL. I think it’s better than going into spectator mode because…

 

Because…

 

I don’t really know.

 

It’s more satisfying in survival.

 

Yeah. That’s why.

 

Well, anyway, that’s my new mini-hobby. Playing Minecraft and waiting for the chunk loading to be slow so I can snap a picture.

 

Am I the only one that thinks this is really, really awesome?

 

I am?

 

Whatever. I’ll keep my screenshots of awesomeness to myself and NOT make wallpapers out of them for you. No problem at all. 😉

 

Until next time,

–K

 

XD XD

Yes, I’m Crazy

You guys.

 

I’ve thought about it quite a bit, and I’ve decided…

 

I’m gonna wing it. I’m gonna write TWO BOOKS AT ONCE.

 

I don’t really know how this is going to turn out. I know it’s going to take a long time to finish them if I do this, but… I’m eight hours into a ten-hour-long track of He’s a Pirate, and all that’s doing is making me itch to write about pirates. I mean, I couldn’t possibly wait until The Raven and the Sparrow has been published to get started! I’m WAY too excited about it (HELP TITLE IDEAS PLEASE)!

 

So yeah. The covers for my projects:

       

 

And yes, that cover says What do I Even Call This. That’s what I’m calling it for now until I can yank a better idea out of my (or someone else’s) head. That cover for The Raven and the Sparrow is temporary.

 

Welp, that’s it for today! Wear your seat belt, hug somebody, and happy Pi Day!

 

Until next time,

–K

Why You Should Listen to Music ALL THE TIME as a Writer + HELP MEH + My New WIP!

Hey, guys! Lately, I’ve been having trouble deciding WHAT in the WORLD to publish first, and I’ve FINALLY DECIDED!! But before I introduce my new WIP…

 

Why You Should Listen to Music ALL THE TIME as a Writer

Because it gives you inspiration. Which is the entire point of this post. Well, 1/3 of it, anyway.

Okay, so a minute ago, I turned on a ten-hour-long track of He’s a Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean (I’ve never seen any of the movies, but I LOVE the music), and I was about to do some writing on Storybird when inspiration hit. I’m not sure what in the world to call it, so give me some ideas PLEASE, but basically a boy (name TBD, ideas for that, too!) goes into a coma (cause TBD), and he has this very realistic dream about going WAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY back into the past, like, pirate times, and later he is captured on a raid and then even later becomes a pirate.

 

So, what, exactly, is the point?

 

Good question.

 

I don’t really have many ideas. The boy wants to wake up from his dream, but he can’t figure out how. He goes to some witch/wizard type person to try to get answers, but they can’t help him (because we know they’re all FAKE, anyway), so he talks to a random stranger who happens to be a Baptist preacher (the random preacher asked him what he was doing dabbling in witchcraft). The preacher dude tells him about Jesus, then the pirate raid happens. That’s all the ideas I have right now. Which is why I need you guys to help me.

 

First of all, names.

I need pirate names, and lots of them. I also need regular-person names from the pirate times (HELP I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHEN THE PIRATES EXISTED), but no cheesy ones everybody’s heard, like James, John, Jean, Jane, etc. Lots of original, pirate-timey names.

 

Secondly, how did this kid end up in a coma?

I need some sort of reason that’s realistic.

 

He fell from a tree?

 

Hmm…

 

No.

 

Maybe… Stuck in a house fire?

 

Uhh…

 

Maybe?

 

I don’t know. Help meh.

 

Thirdly and lastly, research source recommendation.

Please tell me there’s somebody who knows how to research pirates with something besides Wikipedia. I hate Wikipedia! They give you nothing! NOTHING!

 

Well, almost nothing. They give you a few interesting facts, and that’s it.

 

Also, historical pirate fictions would be nice. But make sure there’s no cussing or gory, disgusting, ungodly stuff in them before you link me. 😉

 

So, I hope somebody can help me with those things.

 

Oh, and if you have any better ideas for the plot, do let me know!

 

Now, Kirstyn, which book idea have you decided to make reality first?

 

Great question! I knew you’d ask!

 

But first, I must do the dot-spamming. >:)

The Raven and the Sparrow!

 

GAHH SOOOO SLOWWWWWW!! I think the dots were too much for my computer to handle. :/ I don’t think I put as many as Madi or Enni, though.

 

The Raven and the Sparrow is a story about a twin boy and girl (Raven and Sparrow) who hate each other so much that they play LOTS of brutally mean tricks on each other. One day, Raven gets hurt as a result of one of Sparrow’s tricks, and their parents decide they’ve had enough. As soon as Raven is healed and ready to travel, the twins are sent on a correctional ship cruise designed to improve the behavior of troubled children. one day, something tragic happens to Sparrow, and Raven is crushed. He never should have hated his sister so much.

 

Soooo… When will you start writing it?

 

Another great question.

 

I don’t really know. As soon as I can get all the books and know-how from K. M. Weiland, I guess. Which shouldn’t be too long, hopefully. I might even wing it and write two books at once. 0_0

 

During the writing of this (or these, IDK yet) book(s)…

 

DO NOT ASK ME FOR SPOILERS. As a very passionate enemy of these devilish creatures, I will adamantly refuse to give them away. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

#EndtheSpoilers

 

Will you let us alpha read? Pwease?

 

Honestly, I’m not really sure about alpha readers. I’d have to talk to Mom and Dad, because I’m really too indecisive for my own good. XD I’m capable of decisions, just…

 

I can’t make them very quickly. I guess that would have something to do with my problem with choosing favorites. Lol

 

But at least I still have quite awhile to think about it, since I still need to outline and structure and character arch… All that fun stuff. So, if there’s anybody out there who actually wants to alpha read (which is unlikely), then…

 

Keep your fingers crossed? I guess?

 

Lol.

 

Well, that’s all I have for today!

 

Until next time,

Book Review — Edge of Extinction: The Ark Plan by Laura Martin

Sometime last year (like, awhile before I started this blog), I went to Barnes and Noble and got this book called Edge of Extinction: The Ark Plan. I read it, and I was like…

 

I WANT THE SECOND ONE!!

 

Yeah. I loved it. Here’s the summary on the back of the book:

 

“ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS AGO: The first dinosaurs were cloned and then nearly wiped out the human race. The only way to survive was to move underground.

“FIVE YEARS AGO: Sky Mundy’s father mysteriously disappeared from North Compound, one of four facilities where the last of humanity has been trying to rebuild, leaving her all alone.

“YESTERDAY: Sky found a message from him saying the fate of the world depends on Sky delivering a package to someone above ground–but no one can survive above ground.

“NOW: Sky is going anyway. With her best friend, Shawn, in tow, she will try to fulfill her father’s impossible request. As Sky ventures topside into a lost world ruled by dinosaurs, she will discover it’s just as dangerous as she had always feared… but it’s also nothing like she had ever expected.”

 

 

The (Kind Of) Serious, SPOILER-FREE, Unbiased Review

Completely clean, at least in my opinion. The characters do eat dinosaur… If that’s important at all? There is also a little rebellion against the government. A government agent is out to kill Sky, but no descriptive killing. In fact, there’s no killing at all (unless you count the dinosaurs eating ONE person, but that’s no homicide, and no gory details), just the crazy psycho government agent out to kill Sky threatens people with weapons, naturally. No foul language. Yeah, so basically, unless you have big problems with the minor stuff, this book is pretty everybody-friendly! (It even has some Bible references in it. I was like, WHAT LAURA MARTIN YOU’RE AWESOME.)

 

The Biased, Also SPOILER-FREE Review

PURE. AWESOME. Go read it NOW. You will not regret your decision. I assure you, you will be HOOKED by the time you’re done with it. If not, then… I’m sorry, what species did you say you were?

 

In Conclusion

AWESOME. Everybody-friendly. Go read it. Like, now.

Camp Meeting Recap 2018

Hey, guys! Have you ever heard of Storybird? If you haven’t, go check it out, and be sure to look for me! I don’t have any public content as of right now, but I have several WIPs that should be going into moderation soon. My username is MollyKayKay. 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

I know, I know, I know. I haven’t posted in forever. This post took longer than expected. :/ I’ll try not to do that again.

 

As I mentioned in my previous post, I think this year’s camp meeting has been the best. There could have been more people, but the messages and music were amazing. Maybe because someone was praying for us. I don’t know, but God was definitely there the whole week. These are the notes from the sermons I heard while I was there. I wasn’t able to be there for a few of them because I was sick half of one day, and then we worked over-time in the kitchen once, but I got to hear most of them!

 

Throughout the post, you may see some things [in brackets like this.] These are things I decided not to/didn’t think to include in the original notes I took during service that I just suddenly decided to throw in while writing this post.

 

Also, I know this is SUPER LATE (because camp meeting was LAST MONTH), but WHATEVER.

 

From the Sunday Before:

Keeping Things Tight

(Isaiah 33:20) (Isaiah 54:2) [The church is a tent.] You’re the stakes holding up the tent. Strengthen yourselves. 1. The loose tackling produces loose mass. The little foxes destroy the vine. Pay attention to the little things. Listen to the preaching! If you no longer care about soul winning, there’s something taking you away from it. Without soul-winning, the church will die. 2. Loose tackling prevents putting up the sails. Do you have the Power of God in your life? If not, what’s taking His place? Serving God comes first. Keep God in the throne room of your heart. No one is invincible, you gotta watch and pray, every hour of every day! Guard your heart! Guard your heart! Lock the door and hide the key, from the enemy! Guard your heart! Guard your heart! God Saved you and set you apart, so Believer, don’t forget Whose you are! Guard your heart!

Giving Him Your Best

(Romans 12:1) (Psalms 1:1) (1 John 2:15) God does not want yours. He wants you. If He’s got you, He’s got yours. (Acts 9:6) Never say no to God. Be not conformed to the world. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Let the world know you’re a Christian through the way you live. If you get Jesus, you got it all. (Proverbs 4:23) Believe. Love. Obey. Guard your heart. You didn’t choose Him, He chose you.

 

 

2/4/18 Bro. Charlie Tenney (HEHE Tenney), P.M. Service (Yep, we have A.M. and P.M. services Sunday at our church.)

Liberty

(James 1:22) Explore the Bible. Look into it, and continue therein. But blessings come from doing, not just hearing. There is no liberty without Jesus Christ. Liberty is not doing whatever you want. That’s chaos. It used to be that the church was in charge of education. Not anymore. Our country is divided. (Hebrews 12:2) (Amos 7:7) Make sure your fight is the fight God wants you in. Many say, “What can one man do?” Study the Bible, and you’ll find one man can do a lot. Be a doer.

 

 

From the Official Start to Finish:

 

 

2/5/18 Bro. Jason Kendrick, P.M. Service

The Dedicated, Sold-Out Christian

(2 Samuel 23:8) 1. The three were dedicated and sold-out because they wanted to fellowship with their king [David]. They wanted to know more about him. Pray without ceasing. 2. They suffered with their king. To be a dedicated, sold-out Christian, you must be willing to suffer. Don’t do what Satan says, do what God says. Don’t be afraid to suffer for Christ. 3. They fought with their king. When everyone else ran, they stood their ground. 4. They stood with their king. Stand no matter what. 5. Their hearts went after their king. Be a dedicated, sold-out Christian.

 

NOTE: I know, my notes are pretty randomized, but there comes a point where I’m writing so much I can’t turn in my Bible. These next notes were from Bro. Jim Fellure, who is kinda hard to take notes from, so they’re short and even more randomized. XD Sorry.

No Title

(Gen. 32:24) Follow someone that walks with a limp. Never allow family problems to allow you to quit serving God. (Gen. 32:1) (Phil. 4:?) (Acts 16:9)

What Happens When God Says No?

(2 Sam 12:15) 1. David was down, but he got back up. It’s not a sin to get down, but it’s spiritual suicide to stay down. Faith is saying, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.” True faith is saying, “Yes, I want God to answer my prayer, but if He doesn’t, I’m still gonna do right.” 2. David washed himself. He didn’t pout or throw a fit. 3. He changed his apparel. 4. He went to worship God. 5. He ate. He went back to his responsibilities.

No Title

(Jer. 18:1) God specializes in fixing broken things. God took a broken Joseph’s life, broke down the vessel, and made a new one. God broke Joseph so He could bless him. Sometimes, like Moses, the spirit is broken for a long time. When you’re broken, just trust Jesus and keep going.

The Perfection of Beauty

(Ps. 50:1) (Ps. 90:17) (Ps. 27:4) (1 Chron. 16:29) (2 Chron. 20:21) (Ps. 96:9) What is God’s Glory? (Ex. 15:11) His Holiness. God’s chief Attribute is His Holiness. It is not His Mercy or His Grace. God is Holy, and He cannot tolerate one sin. We don’t understand pure holiness. God forgave you for Christ’s sake. The only Person Who can make things holy is God. (Rom. 1:23) [God’s] Fashion statement: Long, high, loose. [Below the knee, close to the collar bone, not form-fitting.] (Ps. 50:21) The closer you get to God, the less people [there are]. (Zechariah 14:20) Everything in the millennium [millennial kingdom] is stamped with holiness unto the Lord.

Do You Wanna Be More Than Just Saved?

(2 Pet. 1:1) Get in your Bible and study It, don’t just sit there. 1. To be more than Saved, you have to have virtue, which is moral goodness, Godliness, and dedication. [Bottom line,] Just do right. 2. You need to have knowledge. 3. Add temperance (self-control, self-denial). Get some self-control, but don’t become so passive that you won’t fight for anything. 4. Add patience. 5. Add Godliness. The older you get, the closer you should get to Christ. 6. Add brotherly kindness. Forgive people unconditionally. Don’t hold a grudge. 7. Add charity. There’s more to charity than love. Charity is loving someone and doing something to act on it. You can’t love someone you don’t really know, and you can’t really know someone unless you live with them. Be more than just Saved. Don’t be one of The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything. Don’t find a character [to learn from and hang around], find someone with character.

Why We Need To Be Visiting The Altar

(1 Kings 18:25) Why should we as a nation wait for tragedy to pray? Repair the altar. 1. The altar is a place to do business with God. You can pray in your pew, but it’s not the same. 2. The altar is a place where character is built. 3. The altar is a place where our will is broken. 4. It’s a place of answered prayer. 5. It’s a place where we can bind the work of the devil [Madi, this is a good topic for you]. (2 Sam. 15: 30) 6. It’s a place where we live better for God. 7. It’s a place where you develop a burden for others.

Hope

(1 Cor. 13:13) Every one of us is one-of-a-kind. There will never be another Charlie Tenney or Bro. Tabb ever. Faith gets us in, hope keeps us going. When you start thinking like God, you’ve got charity. You won’t have an excuse for why you didn’t do what God asked, because God’s Grace is sufficient. Hope is the main component keeping you going. What God wants us to become, we can’t achieve on our own. Do something on hope. That’s what life’s really about. If you don’t have hope, you don’t have life. You can’t give with a good heart without pleasing God. (Maybe when we get to heaven [yep, good ol’ Bro. Tenney actually said this] We’ll EAT for SEVEN YEARS b/c we’re not coming back [to Earth with God] mid-trib HEHE.) Fill your life with hope.

No Title

(Matt. 11:21) Sackcloth is a picture of man’s unrighteousness. (Lev. 6:9) The ashes are the thoroughness of the fire; they represent the acceptance of the offer. The ashes people sat in/put on their head are from their sacrifices. You’ll never sin beyond the price that’s already been paid. (Ps. 30:8) (Isa. 61:3)

A Call to Return

(Gen. 28:12) (Gen. 31:11) If you say, “Lord, I will,” that’s a vow. Has the Lord ever met with you? If He has, visit that place from time to time. Next time God speaks to you, say, “Speak, Lord, Thy servant heareth.” The Christian life is a continual returning back to God. We need to learn to be spiritual. Just learn more about God. Don’t let the intellectual take the place of the spiritual. It takes WORK to get close to God. Sometimes it’s not about the service you do for Him, it’s how you worship Him. Do you enjoy having time with God? What’s it all about to you? If it’s not all about Him, then it’s time to return. It’s more than just a trip to the altar. Have you ever been where you didn’t wanna leave; you were so close to God you could lay your head on His Chest? Don’t be afraid of where you’re at. God promised to you He’d never leave you, He’d supply all your need. Has He ever made Himself real to you? Return to the place you met God. This is the time to return to God. There’s no joy in the world; only with God. Where are you at? Do you need to return to God?

 

 

NOTE: These next sermon notes are MUCH shorter than the actual sermon. He said MANY more things, but he was reading them off so fast, I couldn’t catch them all, let alone write them all down. XD

Let Me Tell You About Jesus

(John 12:32) (John 14:7) Jesus is holy, He’s loving, He’s gracious, He’s Light, He’s Truth, He’s the Anchor, He’s the Eternal Son, He’s the Eternal Savior, He’s the home to the prodigal son, He’s the Lily of the valley (I can’t even write all this down, he’s talking so fast). There’s nobody like Him. He’s exactly what we need. He’s the Great I AM. He’s everything we need. He created the world. He made us from dust. He flooded the Earth. He divided the people’s languages. He died for our sins. He’s gonna Save more souls. He’s gonna come back. There’s no comparison to Him.

What Satan Found at Job’s House

(Job 1:1) (Job 1:8) God gave a good testimony of Job. 1. Satan found a hedge he couldn’t penetrate. Build yourself a hedge so you have some defense against the devil. 2. He found a heart he couldn’t provoke. Not all trouble is of the devil. 3. He found a hope he couldn’t prevail against. 4. The devil found a harvest he couldn’t prevent.

Problems Between Us and God’s Will

(Num. 13:21) What about the promises in light of your problem? Don’t try to fix your problems in your own power. We can’t face the giants in our own strength. Despite the problems, keep pressing on. God can do it, we can’t. God can take down our giants, we can’t. Until we deal with our problems, they’re just gonna get bigger. If you’re breathing, you’ve had problems, you have problems, you’re going to have problems. Don’t look at God through your problems, look at your problems through your God.

 

 

2/9/18 Bro. Mark Wesley P.M. Service

Heaven Will Surely Be Worth it All

(Rom. 8:18) It’s worth it all to know that you’re Saved, you’re on the Winning Side. (2 Cor. 12:7) All the sorrow and heartache will be worth it when we get to Heaven. Heaven will be worth all the burdens. (2 cor. 4:17) It’ll be worth every battle. It’ll be worth every disappointment, every life experience gone sour.

The Upper Room

The Upper Room is a place where you meet God. (Luke 22:7) You need an Upper Room to just fellowship with God. (Acts 1:13) You need an Upper Room for protection. (John 20:10) (John 20:18 [hahaha]) You need an Upper Room so you can enjoy the Presence of the Lord. The people who weren’t in that Upper Room missed His Presence. They missed His Peace. They missed the praise. (The reason you can’t praise God in public is because you don’t do it in private.) In the Upper Room, you learn what your purpose is. Put the cursed invention called the cell phone or iPad or tablet or whatever AWAY and get. Alone. With. God.  The Touch of God doesn’t come from knowledge; it comes from submission. Do you have an Upper Room? If you don’t, then get one.

 

 

Well, that’s all my notes! I hope you found it at least interesting, because it took a LONG TIME to copy all those notes! Whew! Boy, am I glad this finally got done!

 

Until next time,
