Movies In 2015

Hey y’all! ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t know about you, but I am most excited for the movies coming out this year! I thought I would share several that I can’t wait to see, and so without further ado…here are the films which I am dying to watch.

cinderella #11. Cinderella

Coming out March 13 of 2015, I truly am ecstatic about this new Disney movie! I think they did a great job of picking out an actress that looks like Cinderella and I may have already memorized a line from the film. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tomorrowland-Poster2. Tomorrowland

Another Walt Disney movie coming out this year, Tomorrowland easily captivated my curiosity and attention. I am definitely intrigued to see how this film turns out.

avengers3. Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers – age of Ultron. Well, I won’t speak for the rest of you, but for myself wow. The trailer was fast-paced and when Cap’s shield broke, I could not believe it. Captain America without his shield is like Thor without his hammer or Tony without his suit or, you get the idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰

star wars4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Not much information has been released concerning this movie, but of course even if there had not been a trailer out yet, I think I would have still wanted to see this. I’m really hoping that this seventh film will be just as well-made as the others along with meeting the expectations of star-wars fans everywhere.

frozen fever5. Frozen Fever

I could not mention the previous Disney movies without adding Frozen Fever to the list ofย films I have to see in 2015. I adored Frozen, so I have no doubt that the sequel will be just as cute and entertaining.

inside out6. Inside Out

I have watched the trailer for Inside Out many times and cannot wait for this adorable movie to debut. This is a totally new concept and I find it quite interesting.

Well, there you go! My top movies I desire to see in 2015. What films, are you my readers, excited to go and watch?

My Love of Fiction

fiction quotes

Fiction’s my addiction. Well, that about sums up how I feel about it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, I would like to delve deeper, with you my audience, into why fiction captures our hearts and enraptures our souls.

I can not recall the exact moment when I began to read fiction avidly – as long as I can remember, I have been a reader. Books such as C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, Martha Finley’s Life of Faith series, and others quickly made their permanent place in my heart. What was it about these stories that drew me in with such curiousness and desire? Could it be, that behind each series there was more than just words? Truths were woven in and truth is what, ultimately our hearts desire however hard it may be to hear – or in many peoples cases, read.

The Chronicles of Narnia with its beautiful allegories and similes thrilled my soul as I eagerly soared through the pages. When I realized who Aslan portrays – Jesus Christ, and who the White Witch was formed after – Satan, it was with excitement that I began to see these intricately written metaphors.

Regarding the Life of Faith series by Martha Finley, the main character Elsie Dinsmore was such a wonderful heroine. I found myself challenged in my own walk with the Lord to become more godly, spend more time with Him. This in itself is such a marvelous reason to read fiction, being challenged in life is critical to growth, but when one is challenged by a character…it touches a different place in your heart.

As the years have passed, other types of books have stolen another area of my story-loving heart. Series’ such as that of the Christy Miller by Robin Jones Gunn and Love Comes Softly by Janette Oak have instantly become favorites. I love each for different reasons, for the former I enjoy the clean romance intertwined with the relatable and flawed characters and the latter heightens my fascination with history and everything about those time periods.

Fiction, I have discovered, for myself at least, is an escape – a way to enter another person’s world. What secrets shall I dig up? Which adventures will I embark on?

Fiction remains such a beautiful form of writing and I know that it will always be a special pastime of mine.
