Welcome, Friend,

to My Little Hole in the Ground.

Subscribe to My Little Hole in the Ground...

where a Christian, writer, dreamer, and bibliophile (all rolled up into one) posts his thoughts on life, books, and movies while perpetually attempting to squirm free of the grasp of Amelia, fire-breathing toothy frog and Guardian of the Hole.*

*This is the small print. Two things: one, you need not fear Amelia—I will protect you from her. Two, you get free printable bookmarks from my Etsy shop if you subscribe.

Hi! My name is J. S., or Josh if you prefer. I am a child of God blessed with the most indispensable and inalienable gifts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of chocolate chip cookies. There are others, of course, but those three are arguably the most important.

Things I enjoy doing include dreaming, writing, reading, and creating digital art, all while staying one step ahead of a fire-breathing toothy frog named Amelia. I like to consume tea and podcasts at a somewhat-concerning rate and am currently privileged to have a part-time job saving the world from the imminent cheeseburger apocalypse. I do that four days a week, sometimes five.

I am a sinner saved by grace. It's not because I'm anything special (because I'm not), but because God chose to love me in spite of the fact that I'm not. I believe in Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior, and I believe in the hope that He has given me. This world is broken, but He is making it new again through His love.

Authors that have inspired me include J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Kate DiCamillo, and S. D. Smith. I love to write about what I love, and here on (or in) My Little Hole in the Ground, I post my thoughts on life and various abstract concepts, reviews of books and movies I've found inspiring, and interviews of really interesting people. I try write a post every week, but Amelia sometimes doesn't let me.

Thank you for visiting! I am humbled and blessed that you would take the time to read what I write. If you want to talk for any reason, please contact me.

I hope you enjoy your stay in My Little Hole in the Ground.
