Interesting And Inspiring Women: Virginia Hall

Hey Everyone.

I hope that you are all staying healthy and at least relatively sane during this difficult time. Today I have something a bit different to share with you all. I have for a long while now been thinking about doing some sort of series about women who I have spent time learning about and have found interesting and inspiring. The first woman who I have written about is Virginia Hall. You won’t regret spending the time to read through this (very long) post about her. 😀

A Woman Of No Importance': American Spy Virginia Hall Finally Gets ...
Virginia Hall

Virginia Hall was a remarkable woman with a fascinating story. Contrary how most people viewed her, Virginia Hall was an extremely important woman. She is a classic example of how women and their accomplishments have not been valued throughout history. Virginia played a part in the fight to win WWII by working to free France from Hitler’s clutches.

Virginia’s childhood was mostly happy and easy. She had a loving stepfather, a caring if particular mother and an older brother. Virginia was an outdoorswoman and an excellent markswoman. As she grew older, she became discontent with what her mother wanted her to do with her life, which was to marry a wealthy man and increase the family’s social standing. Virginia wanted more out of life and her solution was to go to Europe. Virginia spent several years in Europe as a young woman. She fell further in love with her “second country” France and enjoyed the freedom of the lifestyle offered to her there. Virginia’s time in France increased her fluency in French, a skill that would serve her well later in life.

Virginia returned home right before World War II began. Her dream was to become an ambassador. This was sadly impossible due to the fact that women at the time were not allowed to be ambassadors. Virginia, who was desperate to do something worked a series of desk jobs in different parts of the government. On one of these assignments she was sent to Indonesia. 

While Virginia was in Indonesia, she went shooting multiple times. On one of these occasions she seriously injured herself. After shooting on one occasion, Virginia tripped and fired a blank into her leg. The wound quickly got infected, it got so bad that for some time they were not sure that Virginia was going to make it. Amazingly Virginia did pull through, but she lost her leg in the process. For the rest of her life Virginia had a prosthetic leg that she called Cuthbert.

As Virginia was recovering, the war was gathering in momentum. When Virginia was fully recovered she decided that she was done sitting behind a desk. The closest a woman got to the battlefields was through nursing or other medical work. Virginia did not have any training as a nurse and was uninterested in receiving any training. So Virginia did the only other thing that was available to her at the time, she began driving ambulances, helping those fighting on the front lines in Europe. She drove under extremely intense conditions and was braver and more determined than her fellow ambulance drivers. 

At some point during Virginia’s time as an ambulance driver, she was approached by a man who offered to put her in touch with someone who he thought could use her skills. At first Virginia was unwilling to pursue this opportunity, but eventually she decided to use the contact information given too her. Through those contacts she became connected to Baker Street, the British Intelligence agency who was trying to help stir resistance in France.

After Virginia received basic training she was sent to Paris undercover as an American journalist. For the first year or so of the time that Virginia was in France she wrote articles and sent them to Baker Street to uphold the cover. Virginia’s goal was to find people willing to help in the fight to liberate France from Hitler and Germany. She very carefully began to contact and find people willing to aid her and their country. These people helped with many things, such as providing safe houses and forging needed papers.

Very quickly Virginia established herself as a successful and superior agent. Her fellow male agents time and again found themselves in trouble due to their own stupidity. These agents often drank heavily due to the constant stress of their lives, gambled away money that was not their own and also took mistresses. These women often had loose lips and the alcohol made these men spill information. Virginia was extremely private and careful, preventing these common mistakes.

Virginia worked hard during her time in France. She had setbacks, had to do difficult things and at times end fellow agents’ or others’, who were a liability to everything she was working towards, lives. Virginia lived in a constant state of stress and relied heavily on sleeping pills. Despite the setbacks and occasional mistakes everyone who worked with Virginia admired and respected her. One man who worked with her said that Virginia’s “amazing personality, integrity and enthusiasm was an example and inspiration for us all”.

Virginia helped British and American soldiers leave and enter France safely. She also lead multiple jailbreaks to free British and American soldiers and French resistance fighters. After working for years to the benefit of the Allies, at the end of the war, Virginia returned to the United States. Virginia later became one of the first women to join the CIA, sadly this was not everything that she hoped it would be and she retired after a series of different jobs within the CIA. While Virginia was part of the CIA she was once again not appreciated and her skills were not taken advantage of. Instead agents were taught and led by young wealthy men without any experience.

Virginia died on July 8, 1982, she was seventy-six. Virginia’s health had gone downhill as she got older, leading to her quiet death in 1982. This was a quiet ending to a life that at many times was disappointing, but also was extremely full of adventure at other times.

I hope that you enjoyed learning a bit about Virginia Hall’s life. She was an remarkable woman in a male-dominated area of work. Virginia’s story is both inspiring and sad. It is truly incredible what she able to accomplish despite the fact that she had a prosthetic leg. Learning about the last years of Virginia’s life made me sad, there was so much she could have done, but was unable to do because she was a woman.

Had you ever heard of Virginia Hall? What did you find most interesting about her story?

Adventures In Cooking// Soaked Bread

Hey Everyone.

I am really excited to share with you all some pictures and my bread making process. We go through quite a bit of bread when it is made. Usually six smallish loaves will last two or maybe three days. We go through food pretty quickly, especially as my brothers are getting older. 😀

I have been making this particular bread recipe for a long time and this year I have made it more than ever before. Sadly I do not know where the recipe came from so I can’t share it, but it is just a very simple soaked bread recipe.

Well. Let’s get started! I’m sorry for the not great photo quality for a bunch of these!

Step 1: Mix flour, I use a mixture of organic flours, yogurt and water.

Step 2: Cover bowl with damp towel and let sit overnight.

Step 3: (The next morning.) Add yeast, sugar and salt and use dough hook to mix.

Step 4: Knead into ball, on a floured surface. Sometimes the dough is more wet than other times (basically, did I measure right or not. usually I don’t.), and will need more flour to keep it from sticking to the counter.

Step 5: Place dough in large buttered bowl.

Step 6: Cover with damp towel, use the same one as before so there is one less towel to wash (not that it makes much of a difference. *sighs*), and put the bowl into a warm oven. I usually put the bowel in the oven and the turn it on to 350 for a minute.

Step 7: (Two hours later.) Butter the pans you plan to put the bread in.

Step 8: Remove dough from oven. (Note the pattern on the top from where the towel pressed into the dough. 😀)

Step 9: Remove dough from bowl and form into massive loaf.

Step 10: Cut the massive loaf into as many pieces as you want loaves. Knead each piece into a loaf shape.

Step 11: Place loaves in buttered pans and let them rise for, at least, half an hour.

Step 12: When the loaves have risen, place them in the oven and turn timer on for 30 minutes.

Step 13: When the timer beeps remove the loaves from the oven and take them out of the pans. Place the loaves on what we call a “drying rack”.

And now all that’s left is the absolute most important part of making bread, eating the bread! You may be tempted to pick off some of the crust, like my littlest sister, before you can get some butter or whatever you want on your bread. 😀

And there you have it! My first post of this type. I hope that you enjoyed learning about my bread baking process. Hopefully it inspired you to try to make some of your own!

I hope that you are all staying healthy and safe during these very difficult time. ❤︎

Have you made bread before? Do you like baking? Did this post inspire you to do some baking or cooking of your own?

Spring Is Here//feat. King of Kings – Hillsong

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_7022.jpg

Without hope without light

Till from heaven You came running

There was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfil the law and prophets

To a virgin came the Word

From a throne of endless glory

To a cradle in the dirt

Praise the Father, Praise the Son

Praise the Spirit three in one

God of glory, Majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings

To reveal the kingdom coming and to reconcile the lost

To redeem the whole creation

You did not despise the cross

For even in Your suffering, You saw to the other side

Knowing this was our salvation

Jesus for our sake You died

And the morning that You rose all of heaven held its breath

Till that stone was moved for good

For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs

And the angels stood in awe

For the souls of all who’d come to the Father are restored

And the Church of Christ was born

Then the Spirit lit the flame

Now this gospel truth of old, shall not kneel shall not faint

By His blood and in His Name, in His freedom I am free

For the love of Jesus Christ who has resurrected me

King of Kings – Hillsong Worship

Thinking of you all during this very difficult time. I hope that you take some time celebrate this special day, the day we remember the resurrection of Jesus.

Has spring arrived where you live? What is your favorite thing about spring? Do you have a favorite of the (many) pictures above?

The Story Raiders: A Book Review

The Story Raider (The Weaver Trilogy, #2)

Title: The Story Raider ❤️

Author: Lindsay A. Franklin

Published: 2019

Genre:  Fantasy, Christian, Young Adult

Rating: ★★★★★

My Thoughts:

I fell in love with The Story Peddler from it’s first paragraphs. Lindsay Franklin’s story was interesting, her world building detailed and believable and her characters absolutely wonderful. I received The Story Raider for Christmas and just read it about a month ago. It is a wonderful sequel to The Story Peddler, every bit as enjoyable and interesting.

The Story Raider follows Tanwen as she travels with Mor, her father and the other Corsyth weavers. The purpose of their journey is to find the cure to the weaver’s curse and to save Gryfelle’s life. They travel by boat to several island countries in search of story strands. The story strands were hidden by the Master weavers of old and when put together form the cure to the weaver’s curse.

Mor and Tanwen’s relationship is strained throughout most of the story. They are both tied to others, but they care for each other. Tanwen and mor are also each struggling with things unrelated to each other. Mor is filled with grief over the state of Gryfelle’s health and quickly approaching death. Tawen is scared to realize that she also is suffering from the same sickness that is killing Gryfelle. At times they are able to connect and rekindle their friendship, but each time their journey manages to build walls between them.

Throughout the journey, Tanwen’s story strands’ abilities grow and begin to develop. She is starting to discover what her strands are capable of with and without her direction. Tanwen is beginning to learn about the full scope of the powers of weavers and how knowledge of these powers is largely lost to time.

Back in Tir, Braith is trying to establish herself as queen. There are many who are against her and she struggles to fully establish herself as the leader of the Tirian Kingdom. Meanwhile, Naith Bo-Offraid, the High Priest, is working on a plan with his mysterious and evil Master to overthrow Braith.

The Story Raider is a story of friendship, adventure and determination. It is a beautiful story of sacrifice, endings and second chances with family. You do not want to miss the second book of The Weaver Trilogy.

Have you read The Story Peddler? Have you read The Story Raider? I am I the only one who can’t wait for the release of The Story Hunter!? What have you been reading?

Of Fire and Lions: A Book Review Of Fire and Lions: A Novel (9780735291867): Mesu ...

Title: Of Fire and Lions ❤️

Author: Mesu Andrews

Published: 2019

Genre:  Historical Fiction, Biblical Fiction

Rating: ★★★★★

My Thoughts:

Biblical Fiction as a whole is not known for being that great, in terms of actual story lines and writing quality. So many of the books that fall into this genre are uninteresting and not very enjoyable reads. The storylines often all feel like you have read them before and just don’t pull the reader into the story. Many authors simply seem to have trouble breathing new life into their characters from the time period.

There are a few exceptions though. Mesu Andrews is one such exception. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of Mesu andrews books that I have read. Each book has had wonderful characters and an interesting story line that doesn’t move so slowly that you fall asleep while reading it. In fact the stories have pulled me on from the first pages and kept me reading until the last pages. Of Fire and Lions was every bit as enjoyable as Mesu Andrews’ other books.

Of Fire and Lions is about Belili, the fictional wife of Daniel. The books begins when daniel and Belili are in their mid eighties and goes on to tell Belili’s life story. Belili was a young Hebrew girl when she was taken to Babylon with Daniel and many other Hebrew people. Belili and Daniel became friends on the long journey and when they arrived in Babylon, after a short period of time Belili became his maid. After an attempt on Belili’s life, she was sent away from the palace. This is when Belili’s life dramatically and sadly changes course for some time.

Quite a few years later, Belili and Daniel meet again. After each losing their first spouses and growing close to each other through sickness, Belili and Daniel get married. This is in many ways still only the beginning of their story. Of Fire and Lions then goes to tell the story of the time that Daniel spent in the lions’ den from Belili’s perspective.

Of Fire and Lions is a moving story, a beautiful story of love between a couple who has been married for many years and a story of faith and redemption. Belili’s faith and relationship with God grows and develops throughout the story and over the years. Belili finds forgiveness from her sins and peace from her heartache.

I highly recommend this book to older christian historical and biblical fiction fans. It is definitely worth the time spent reading all 400 pages of the story. That said, I would not recommend this book to younger teens and tweens.

How do you feel about Biblical Fiction? Have you read any of Mesu Andrews’ books? What have you been reading lately?

KOTLC Collab// Kaelyn @Kaelyn’s Life

Hey Everyone.

As you may or may not be aware I love the Keeper Of The Lost Cities series. They are a wonderful series for readers of all ages who enjoy clean, fun and suspenseful fantasy. The reading level might be middle-grade, but don’t let that discourage you from reading the series! Kaelyn also is a big KOTLC fan and so we decided to ask each other some questions about our thoughts about the series. It was really fun to put it together and to spend a bit of time with some of my favorite characters again. 😀

*There may be some spoilers mixed in with the questions and answers, so if you haven’t read the whole series and really don’t want anything spoiled, you might want to skip this post. 😀

*My questions are italicized and Kaelyn’s answers are not.

Keeper of the Lost Cities

Do you like Flashback or was it too slow paced for you? 

I did not think it to slow paced but there was a lot of detail and dialogue but I really enjoyed Flashback.

Stina in Legacy, love her, hate her?

At first, I was  like Stina. whyy?!!! But Stina has slowly grown on me but she can be kind of a bother sometimes. 

Which KOTLC book is your favorite? which is your least favorite?

My favorite book is probably Legacy, Neverseen, or Nightfall. Least favorite maybe Everblaze? I love them all though!! It is hard to pick a least fav! 🙂 

Do you have a favorite KOTLC book cover?

My favorite cover is probably Exile and my second favorite is Nightfall. 🙂 

Keeper of the Lost Cities The New York Times Bestselling Series

How do you feel about Legacy? Did it frustrate you that suddenly half of Sophie’s friends and team were left out?

I loved Legacy!! Some parts I just could not stop reading!!!! Well, it sort of frustrated me but I see why the council did what they did and it gives us a chance to get to know some of the other characters better. 

If you were an elf, what abilities would you want to have?

I would want two powers, to be a telepath and a froster.

Which of Sophie’s friends are your favorite (if you can pick)?

I love Keefe, Linh, Tam, and Biana, and Wylie. 

Were you on Team Keefe or Team Fitz before Legacy?

I was Team Fitz for almost all of the books except at the end of Flashback and into Legacy I was totally Team Keefe!! #teamkeefe4life 


Does it annoy you that for the first half of Legacy, while Sophie and Fitz were “dating”, Fitz was a bit of a jerk?

Yeah, it did kind of annoy me. I would have been happy but Fitz was a bit of a jerk and I am totally Team Keefe all of the way now!! Sorry Fitz!!

If you could live at one of the mansions in KOTLC, where would you live?

I love the Vackers mansion and Edalane and Grady’s mansion. Although, I would love to have a design like the Songs house or Keefe’s dad’s house. I would not want to live with them but would maybe want a similar design. 🙂 

Were you surprised or disappointed that Oralie is Sophie’s mom?

YYYEEEESSSS!!  But at the same time, it kind of makes sense!! At least she is sweet and is not like evil or something  but I don’t know, it was really  hard on Sophie. But I was more surprised than disappointed.


*All of the pictures are KOTLC book covers!

Have you read the Keeper of The Lost Cities books? What do you think of the series? What are some books on your tbr right now?

I hope that you are all staying healthy and are able to enjoy some fresh spring air at least through your windows!

March 2020 Playlist//Crocus Pictures

Hey Everyone.

It is really beginning to feel like spring here. The winter already is starting to feel like a memory (other then the fact that we had snow earlier this week). The crocuses have popped up and they are so beautiful, the first flowers of the spring. I have, of course, taken quite a few pictures of the crocuses in our front yard. I won’t share them all, but I will share some of my favorites.

Music is such a powerful thing, it can affect and at times completely change the mood of the listeners. With this in mind, I’ve put together a playlist of some songs that I think are really encouraging during this difficult time and that are the reminder that we need to trust God. These are all great songs to put on repeat in the background of your life at home right now.

I hope that these pictures are a bit of fresh air to you and that these songs are even slightly encouraging and help to bring you some hope during this intense and difficult time.

First Signs Of Spring 2020//feat. Peace – Hillsong Young & Free

You will stay true

Even when the lies come

Your word remains truth

Even when my thoughts don’t line up

I will stand tall on each promise You made

Let the rest fade away

There’s a peace far beyond all understanding

May it ever set my heart at ease

Dare anxiety come, I’ll remember that peace is a promise You keep

Peace is a promise You keep

You will stay true

Even in the chaos

Your word remains truth

Even when my mind wreaks havoc

I will be still

For I’ve known all along

My Jehovah Shalom

There’s a peace far beyond all understanding, may it ever set my heart at ease

What anxiety fails to remember is peace is a promise You keep

You are peace to a restless soul

Peace when my thoughts wage war

Peace to the anxious heart

That’s who You are, that’s who You are

You are peace when my fear takes hold

Peace when I feel enclosed

Peace when I lose control

That’s who You are, that’s who You are

I’ve found peace far beyond all understanding, let it flow when my mind’s under siege

All anxiety bows in the presence of Jesus the Keeper of Peace

And peace is a promise He keeps

PeaceHillsong Young & Free

I hope and pray that you are able to find peace in Jesus tonight, amidst all of the chaos in the world and our lives.

Interview With Amie Anne//Blog Tour and Giveaway//Thoughts On History and Blogging

Hey Everyone.

I am really excited to participate in this blog tour promoting Amie’s new blog Amie Anne: A Girl Chasing The Stars. I have been following Amie for about a year now and I’ve watched her try a few different sites and a couple different titles. It is really exciting to see how her new blog has come together! It looks and is wonderful.

And let’s get to our interview!

*My questions and thoughts are italicized, Amie’s thoughts are not.

What inspired you to change your blog name?

I didn’t fit Crazy A anymore. And from talking to the people around me, they didn’t see me as Crazy A, either. So? It was time for a change.

That totally makes sense, I have recently been feeling the same way about my own blog.

Why do you enjoy blogging? What is your favorite part of blogging?

That’s a good question, one that I ask myself a lot. I enjoy creating content and sharing it with the world, and I also enjoy talk to commenters and other bloggers. It’s so neat to have a community of bloggers and blog readers. (Honestly, my favorite thing ever is collabing with someone. XD)

The blogging community is really wonderful and fun to be part of.

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging since August 2017. 

Do you have a favorite or preferred type of post?

I really like poetic posts, ones that aren’t exactly poetry, but have a rhyme and rhythm to the way they read. As an example, my posts Dreams and The Earth’s Tears.

Those are both beautiful posts, two of my favorites of your posts. The Earth’s Tears and Dreams both made me want to cry in the best way possible.

Let’s switch topics a bit now. I know that you are a history lover and since I am too I have some questions for you regarding your love for history.

Who are several historical figures who you admire?

Louisa May Alcott, Corrie Ten Boom, Louis Zamperini, Hannah More, Winston Churchill, Alan York, and Queen Elizabeth I.

I find Corrie Ten Boom and Queen Elizabeth I both truly admirable and inspiring. They both were really strong women, and lived interesting and dangerous, especially Corrie Ten Boom, lives.

What historical periods of time are you most interested in?

The 1500s are extremely interesting to me, as well as the 1850s-1950s. England in the 1500s is such an intriguing study, watching an empire build. And then seeing the years leading towards the American Civil war, and then reconstruction, WWI, the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, WWII, and the aftermath of all of that is so intriguing. 

It really is intriguing. History in general is so interesting.

What is it about this period of time that interests you most?

Oops, I just answered this question in the last question. XD Honestly, it’s just intriguing to see how war effects the world, the economy, the culture, and the mindset of the generations in that time period. 

That’s true. War shapes the mindsets of entire generations, and the effects are so lasting and widespread. It can be easy at times to forget that it was all real people who died in the different wars, but we should not forget. All of those people mattered.

Do you think that it is important for everyone to about the history of their country? If so why?

Absolutely. I think it’s important that everyone learn the history of the WORLD, not just the history of their country. If we don’t learn history, we’re bound to repeat it. As Ecclesiastes said, “There’s nothing new under the sun.” It’s the same with people’s heart. We’re going to make the same mistakes as our forefathers, unless we are wise and learn from their mistakes. 

It is important to know the history of the world you live in. Some days it can be so frustrating how history repeats itself.

Do you think that women should have had the vote from the very beginning in our country? Do you think that it is surprising that it took so, relatively, long for women to get the right to vote in our country?

What a good question. I want us to pause and consider the world in 1776. The mindset of the culture of that time. We read historical fiction books where the females are longing to be out there with the men. We read books about Molly Pitcher, who took her husband’s place. But how many of us have read Abigail Adams’ letters to her husband? What about Eliza Lucas Pinckney? Women were working behind the scenes, and so I think at the time, no. Due to politics, due to culture, due to many things, there wasn’t even the idea of “letting” or “not letting” women vote. There was strong Presbyterian beliefs in the new country, where the man is the head of the household, and his wife should agree with him.

 Those are all good points and true. We should not forget how hard the women worked at home to help make it possible for the men to go and fight. I have to say that I can not support or agree with that view of a woman having to agree with her husband, father or brother’s political views, but that was what the view of the time was.

Is it surprising that it “relatively” took a long time for us to be granted that vote? No. One, I don’t think it was all that long. In looking over history, a 143 isn’t all that long. I think it’s surprising that it took us so long to see that people with a different skin color than us are just as smart, just as human as we are. I do find it surprising, though, that it went on for how long it did. Women showed dedication, which is something we should be proud about each time we go to vote. 

Another good point, sometimes I forget how truly young our country is is. Our history is rich and full but quite short. It is shocking how long it took for African Americans to get the right to vote and to be recognized as complete and fully intelligent human beings!

Thank you for letting me interview you, Amie! I really enjoyed doing this.

And there you have it, my interview with Amie. I hope that you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed doing it. Be sure to head over to Amie’s blog to check it out! And don’t forget to enter her giveaway!

Do you already follow Amie or are you just hearing about Amie and her wonderful blog? How do you feel about history? Do you have a favorite historical period of time to learn about?
