• For those of us who came a little later to the AP fan club and don’t have this (clearly amazing) early release, where can we listen? RR store is sold out, Amazon only has 1 hard copy left… Is it in digital form anywhere? (Please say yes!) 

  • One of my favorite things about this story, apart from all the personal applications, is the whimsical, profound, poignant insight it gives us into Tolkien himself and how he most likely viewed what we all now think of as “his life’s work”, the sprawling, detailed, exquisitely complex, never completely finished Lord of the Rings universe. I wonder…[Read more]

  • Like others have said, I am one of those who experience constant and ongoing urges to create with words and music, but because I don’t make any money with it or even yet have been able to wrestle much of it into an “offerable” form, I have trouble seeing those desires/gifts as “my nature”. I have been braver last few years, identifying myself as a…[Read more]

  • Thank you for this! Your last sentence was freeing for me. I struggle with not wanting to make anything that won’t measure up to either the picture I have in my mind, or the full potential of the idea itself — which, since I’m not an artistic genius and I live in a fallen, broken world, is well nigh impossible. So that makes me hesitate to even…[Read more]

  • I remember finishing “Perelandra” for the first time… It was the first time I’d ever found myself weeping for sheer joy at the end of a book. I felt like my brain and heart were exploding. It felt like Lewis was transcribing a prophetic vision of what God had actually intended when he created his universe, when he created humanity, created me. I…[Read more]

  • Have you read “Til We Have Faces”? C.S. Lewis’ take on Cupid and Pysche… A pretty incredible story of transformation.

  • The ending of <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Perelandra</span>, the first time I read it, made me weep. I think it was the first time I’d ever cried for sheer joy at the end of a book… I felt like my brain and heart were exploding. I felt like I was catching a glimpse for the first time of what God had actually envisioned when he…[Read more]

  • For me too, Christy, George MacDonald’s books were a “place where I was nourished”. I love that he did this for you while you were in crisis. Pivotal scenes from “The Princess and the Goblin”, which I adored and re-read often as a girl, began to appear regularly during spiritual direction sessions for me, following the recovery of our daughter…[Read more]

  • Carolyn Rose changed their profile picture 8 months, 3 weeks ago

  • Hi everyone, I’m Carolyn, currently living in a small village in Central Asia with my husband and three kids. I’m a songwriter, a writer, and have a Bachelor’s of Music in singing, but since we live in such an isolated area, it’s been challenging to find ways to practice and engage with art, and keenly feel the lack of creative community. I read…[Read more]
