Once upon a time............
There lived a girl. A girl who had gone to church all her life-so 'church' was all she knew. She did all the things typical church girls do. She went to Sunday-School and youth meetings, even sang in the choir. As a matter of fact, there wasn't a single thing she didn't take part in or that she couldn't do.
As the girl grew up, things happened. Life literally huffed and puffed and blew her hopes down. This lost girl had wandered far from a little place called home. Sadly, she spent many years trying to find the path back to the Yellow Brick Road. On some days, life was too hot; on other days, life was too cold, and she always wondered if life would ever be just right.
Reality had served up some poetic justice, as she encountered the likes of Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, Dopey, and Doc. She was left so torn til' she had very little faith that any frog would turn into a Prince. Although she had tried it all, nothing seemed to fill the void that each situation-ship had left behind. While on the journey, the girl messed up-a lot! When she wasn't eating apples, she was giving up her voice that sings to chase love or traded her 'value' for useless magic beans. Alas, she had to let it go! Finally, she realized that when she walked in the shoes designed to fit her perfectly, she would unlock the power of her inner greatness.
Luckily, this church girl survived to tell the tale. While she has no tiara nor a castle with a king and her life is far from being a fairytale. Magically, she has come to understand that living in and thus telling her truth, is the only version of 'abracadabra' she needs to make all her dreams come true.
This girl evolved and became The Sassy Scribe who will talk about it all, here in the stories dubbed the Chronicles of a Church Girl. And she lived, thereafter. Period!
