About

Revision 3 began as a place to promote my book of short stories. I fell in love with the practice of writing bits of insight. At first, I stuck mostly to literature and art, mixing my own quiet home life into the posts. As my blog evolved, I found it to be a wonderful place to write through my problems and my successes. I’ve written about my spiritual life, my academic tendencies, my homeschooling adventure, and my relationship troubles.

Then, I hit a dark spot in life, when I was too confused and distraught to present my thoughts to the public. I tried turning to art and literature, but it all felt fake and unimportant. Where was God leading me? I turned to my church and God, and I hung on tight.

I’m not out of the darkness, but God has thrown His light into my path. My confusion is not completely straightened out, but God’s truth is shining through the muddle. And now, on the evening of April 6, 2019, I’m going to start a new chapter in Revision 3. The number 3 still stands as strong as it does in fairy tales, but now it stands for Mother Culture, Beauty, and Truth.

Mother Culture: a Charlotte Mason term. It stands for the things Moms do to keep themselves sharp and refreshed. In my case, it may stand for a continued interest in art and literature, but also nature walks and Bible studies.

Beauty: So many things can be beautiful. Thoughts, insights, a state of mind. A single flower. A memory. Sometimes I want to write about things because they are beautiful, and they lift my attitude out of the ugliness.

Truth: A tricky category, certainly, since I’ve been known to not know the truth. But God leads me there, and I point it out to myself and say, “This is true.”

Mostly, Revision 3 is a form of therapy for me. I don’t know if you’ll enjoy it or not. If you find some refreshment here, then please stick around. Read more. Think about life with me.

Yours truly, Amy Krohn

    Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m glad to have another blogging friend. In your one about the author paragraph we have three things in common: we are both mothers, we are both writers, and we are both amazed by the wonder of Creation. I’m looking forward to following your posts.

    Thanks for your meaningful blog. I’ve been looking for another literature loving Christian who blogs about the godly enlightenment found in classic novels!
