July 2018 Reflections and August 2018 Resolutions

Hello everyone!

It’s nearly the end of August( and I’m now publishing my goals!)

Let’s review July:

1. Start preparing for the autumn blogging season.

I do have some plans for the autumn, but they are not set in stone yet 😊

2. Camp NaNoWriMo

I finished my first book of devotionals, which I hope will be ready for you next year😊

3. Start practising Spanish when I go to Spain

I did, which was helpful because I ended up being a ‘translator’ for my friends throughout the week 😊

4. Start revising all of the GCSE course that I’ve learnt so far.

Yes, which has been helpful, but very tiring.

5. Compose a piece


6. Read more books

Yay!!! I love the summer so much as I get to read more 😊

Now, onto August goals!

1. Write and submit an article to Project Inspired

2. Continue studying for GCSEs

3. Find some Christian French and Spanish singers to listen to

4. Start learning Romanian for my mission trip to Romania in October!

5. Compose a song

How about you?

How are your August goals going?

August 2018’s Book if The Month-When Beauty Blooms

Hello everyone! Today’s book is special as it it part of Victoria Lynn’s Blog Tour this week( and my first blog tour review!)

About the book:

Revolutionary War Era England

Marjorie Kirk is a woman with no fortune, no prospects, no family, and no skills. Or so she thinks. She is awkward, shy, and the farthest thing from any semblance of a society lady.

The new minister keeps turning up in the most awkward of places and she can’t help but feel that her life is doomed to one of embarrassment. But will her flaws actually be the thing that others find the most attractive?

A story of a young woman with social anxiety and how she learned to bloom.

What I loved:

I loved the way that Ginger, Daphne and Marjorie interacted with each other, even though they were quite different personality wise.

Age Recommendation: 12+

For anyone who wants a sweet short romance, this is perfect.

Where to buy this book

You can buy it on Paperback (

For Americans) and on Kindle ( For Americans here: )

Chosen For Such A Time As This Author Q&A

Eek! It’s August! And what better way to start than with an author interview with Jheralynne Foster on her new book!

1. When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?

I knew I wanted to become an author when I was in elementary school! That’s when I started writing short stories, poetry and scripts.

2. What is Chosen for Such a Time as This about?

Chosen is a non-fiction, devotional style book written to encourage women of all ages to trust God’s timing, no matter where you find yourself in this season. Chosen is my personal story where I share the lessons I’ve learned and how God has transformed my life.

3. What inspired Chosen for Such a Time as This?

God has taught me so much over the past few years and He placed it on my heart to share my story with other women. The title comes from the belief that there is purpose and beauty in each season.

4. Who is the book for?

Chosen is for women and girls who need hope, understanding and wisdom regardless of where they are in life or what their experiences have been. It is for those who need a fresh perspective or encouragement in their daily walk with Christ. It also addresses many of the issues Christian singles are faced with, and provides practical ways to overcome them!

5. What do you want readers to gain from your book?

I want every reader to know that she is created in God’s image and He has a unique plan for her life. My prayer is that readers will have a better understanding of their worth in Christ, His character and how to trust God and live for Him in today’s world.

6. Have you written any other books and where can we get them?

I am currently writing my second book, which is a 90-day devotional. It will be published this December, so stay tuned! πŸ™‚

7. What kind of books do you enjoy reading?

I enjoy reading books that encourage me to grow. I also enjoy reading relatable fiction books!

8. Where can we connect with you?

I blog at! I also recently created Instagram and Twitter accounts. You can follow me @styledandgraced

9. What tips do you have for young aspiring writers?

I believe the gift of writing and the desire to write come from God. We were made in His image and He is the ultimate creator, which is why He gives us creative ideas and talents. If you’re a young aspiring writer, I encourage you to write every single day, even if it is journaling. Ask God for direction in how He wants to use you and be intentional about developing your craft! Be confident in who God has called you to be and don’t allow discouragement or fear to keep you from pursuing purpose!

Thank you so much Jehralynne! Be sure to go and check out her book!
