My name is Bryan Lilly. I’m a 32–year–old Christian, husband, father, and coffee–drinker. Also, I develop websites .
Having been born and raised in beautiful southern West Virginia, I have been indelibly formed and influenced by the art and culture of Appalachia. I didn’t fully appreciate such things—the art, the music, the folklore, simple living—while growing up, but I would not be who I am today apart from them.
I currently live in Louisville, KY, with my wife, our daughter, and our cat. We spend our days and nights changing diapers, laughing, taking a lot of pictures of our daughter, enjoying the ordinariness of life, and serving our church (Sojourn Community Church. East Campus). My wife sings for the worship team while I help with pastoral-care and counseling.
To the degree that I am formed by Appalachian culture, I am equally indebted to the influence of authors and thinkers such as Tim Keller, Abraham Kuyper, N. T. Wright, Eugene Peterson, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Wendell Berry.
I have a Bachelor’s in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism from West Virginia University. and a Master’s of Divinity from Southern Seminary .
I like to draw. A lot.Tweets

Teaching Undergraduates. Essays from the Lilly Endowment Workshop on Liberal Arts.
Kimball, Bruce A. Ed.
The Lilly Endowment has a long-standing commitment to supporting liberal arts programs and teaching at the undergraduate level. The Endowment-sponsored summer workshop on the liberal arts, held annually at Colorado College, has a 28-year history. It offers professors and deans from a variety of colleges and universities the opportunity to study a specific problem related to the liberal arts at their own institutions, as well as to reflect on broader issues of concern to all liberal arts institutions. Ten essays from this workshop on teaching undergraduates include the following: (1) "Historia Calamitatum" (Bruce A. Kimball); (2) "Energizing the Classroom: A Personal and Phenomenological View" (Herman Sinaiko); (3) "Teaching Science" (Elof Axel Carlson); (4) "Teaching Literature: Rethinking the Socratic Method" (Mary Burgan and Michael Berger); (5) "Play and Undergraduate Teaching" (Margaret B. Wilkerson); (6) "Film Across the Curriculum: Teaching Subject Matter as Text" (Virginia Wright Wexman); (7) "Protagoras, Ph.D." (James Redfield and Herman Sinaiko); (8) "Teaching Ethics in a Professional Age" (David H. Smith); (9) "Does Teaching Help Students Learn?" (Joseph Katz); and (10) "Rewarding Excellent Teaching" (Frank Newman). An appendix is entitled "College and University Participants in the Lilly Endowment Workshop on the Liberal Arts, 1978-1988." (SM)

I actually never said that. And I am, I think it's awesome that someone is choosing to be lovely to people. I actually meant below that if they didn't tell the same thing to everyone it might mean more, not that they shouldn't tell that to everyone. That was my mistake, and I'm sorry if this hurt your feelings for saying that.Don't forget to SMILE. just be yourself, & just incase you didn't already know, you are amazing, have a great day!💚😊 Anon(:
Like I said below, this would mean soooo much more if you didn't tell it to everyone. 😐
I first encountered James Aldridge ’s books in the Kangaroo Flat Library when I was a braces-wearing, freckled eleven-year-old in zinc cream and Ken Done shorts.
Positioned awkwardly between a vast shopping-centre carpark and the noisy Calder Highway to Melbourne, the small library was nonetheless a cultural beacon to little country nerds like me. It was certainly one of my favourite places to escape to, along with the front seat of my family's yellow Mitsubishi van, where I could hide right outside our house and read in peace all weekend.
There wasn’t a wide range of children’s novels on the Kangaroo Flat Library shelves, but that made the discovery of Aldridge’s wonderful books TheTrue Story of Lilli Stubeck (1984) and The True Story of Spit MacPhee (1986) all the more remarkable.
These were stories about dirty, barefoot country kids who lived on the outskirts of St Helen (based on Swan Hill, 190 kilometres north of Kangaroo Flat) in the 1930s, and they were real to me in a way a lot of other children’s books weren't.
The True Story of Spit MacPhee
Like many of Aldridge’s twenty-six books, Lilli Stubeck. winner of the 1985 CBCA Book of the Year, and Spit MacPhee. winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and the NSW Premier’s Literary Award, were tales of free-spirited, neglected kids who didn’t really belong ‘in town’. Lilli and Spit smelled of dust and brown Murray River water, they had a sense of right and wrong that had nothing to do with adult authority figures, and they couldn’t help but be themselves. Along with Colin Thiele’s books, Thurley Fowler’s The Green Wind and Nadia Wheatley’s The House that Was Eureka . they had an enormous impact on the way I viewed myself and the way I understood Australian history.
A television adaptation of Spit MacPhee screened in 1988 and the freckle-faced little boy who starred as Spit (who came from Quambatook—known to us as Quamby) bought his family a fridge with the money he earned. There was a picture of him and the fridge in the local paper. Things really didn’t seem to have changed all that much in country Victoria between the thirties, when James Aldridge’s novels were set, and the late eighties.
James Aldridge died in London this week, aged in his nineties. Two of his finest novels live on as a Text Classic and a Pen g uin ebook. And in me and probably thousands of other readers around the country.

Harold Edward James Aldridge (born 10 July 1917) is a multi-award winning Australian author and journalist whose World War II despatches were published worldwide and formed the basis of several of his novels, including the prize-winning The Sea Eagle about Australian troops in Crete.
Aldridge was born in White Hills, a suburb of Bendigo, Victoria. By the mid 1920s the Aldridge family had moved to Swan Hill, and many of his Australian stories are based on his life growing up there. Aldridge moved to London in 1938; he currently lives in Battersea, South West London.
The stories that are based on the real living conditions of his hometown of Swan Hill include his 1995 Children's Book Council of Australia book of the year The True Story of Lilli Stubeck, one of his St Helen series of children's books. He lived in Cairo for many years, writing several books about the Middle East, including Cairo - Biography of a City and the novels The Diplomat and Heroes of the Empty View. His 1973 children's novel A Sporting Proposition was adapted for the 1975 Disney film Ride a Wild Pony.
He won a Lenin Peace Prize in 1972 for 'his outstanding struggle for the preservation of peace'. He has also won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, the World Peace Council Gold Medal, and was awarded the Gold Medal for Journalism by the Organisation for International Journalists in 1972.

I count the stars decorating the skies picture frame
Look to the space of written words without a name
With the telescope of nature magnifying their size
Friendly twinkles that wink down with solemn eyes
The heartbeat of the ocean floor drowns out the weary
An act of sheer impulse to discover the fires fiery
Within the sculpture of magnificence lay these white diamonds
All the riches in the world could not begin to hope to buy them
A lush and radiant tear droplet that captures a weakened heart
Such a glorious moment of surrender to the nights brand new.
