Hello, I am glad to be able to write here on Apricotpie and to be able to share my writing with you. I try both to glorify God with my writing, and to give quality to my writing. I'm the third youngest of eight. You may know two of my brothers; James, who is the Owner of this website, and Ezra, who is a retired monthly writer. Also on Apricotpie are my two sisters, Rosie and Susannah, another brother, Nat, and Johanna and Benjamin, my cousins, who are both monthly writers.
I am a son of our Lord and Savior, the Creator of this wonderful earth that He has been so gracious to let us live on. I love to learn about almost anything, am an Entomologist, and enjoy Formal Debates and conversations on Theology.
A Few Things That I Love:
Our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, The Holy Scriptures, Papa, Mama, my Siblings (James, Ezra, Isaac, Nat, Rosie, Susannah, and David), Classical Music, Celtic Music, Chickens, Land, Hymns, Debating, Tomatoes, Kohlrabi, Gardening, The Harp, The Ukulele, Bagpipes, Insects, Crickets, Beetles, Darkling Beetles (especially Iphthiminus serratus also Named 'Cabin Beetle' by me) :), Raising Crickets, Studying God's Creation, LEGOs, Learning about the Civil War, Collecting Coins, Hiking, Digging for Fossils, Catching Insects, Lamplighter Publishing, Lamplighter Rare Collector's Series, The Lamplighter and Titus: Comrade of the Cross (both books), Cooking (try doing it front of a judge at the state fair!), King Arthur Flour (Organic and Stone Ground), Organically Grown Plants or Raised Animals (I'd rather not eat all those chemicals), Honor, Wholesomeness, Manliness, Gentlemen, Doug Phillips (the Chuck Norris of the homeschool realm), and oh! so much more....
Some Favorite Quotes:
