confession

i have two summer loves this season. my first, of course, is zach. my second is Christian novel series. i can't help but confess it. i know it is so not cool, but what can i say. here is why i love them.... (and thank you, brooke for discussing these with me. love you.)

1. loves stories without the trashiness of romance novels
2. lots of scripture throughout the story
3. lots of "perfect" Christians
4. even thought it's predictable, i get stressed over the story line (mostly whether or not my fav characters will profess their love and get married)
5. here is a general example of a story line: person starts out with a rough past (perhaps he/she is an orphan, or had some childhood accident resulting in not being able to talk loudly, or is an indentured servant, or loses their family on the wagon ride West, etc)... then he/she accepts Christ, falls in love, gets married, has babies....happy ending!!

so far i have mostly read lori wick and tracie peterson.

i should probably be pretty embarrassed about this post (make that most posts), but whatev :)

haha....so, on saturday night i had a conversation with some people about how girls read christian romance novels -- they were talking about how we get so wrapped up in them and act as if we were part of the story...and that's exactly what we do! just thought i'd share b/c i love that you read them too and we can talk about them!
btw....check out the guy i'm not dating by trish perry if you haven't...
