My place beside you, my blood for yours.

I’m Havalah Ruth Peirce, a girl who remembers who she is, lets other pens dwell on guilt and misery, and likes good, strong words that mean something. Welcome to my website, where I write, laugh, and ramble—all for the glory of God. Please join me as I find my wings and beat them against the wind of the world.

Rex meus mundō hōc nōn est.

Quote of the Week

“The keys of doctrine / which unlock all of Scripture’s books, / have opened up before my eyes / the book of creation… / This is a book which, above its companions, / has in its narrative / made the Creator perceptible / and transmitted His actions; / it has envisioned all His craftsmanship, / made manifest His works of art.”
