Here is an article from a brio magazine about Twilight.
Taking a close look at the popular ‘Twilight’ fiction series
In the dappled sunlight in the clearing of a meadow on the edge of a forest, 16-year-old Bella Swan’s heart races as GQ-model-handsome Edward Cullen draws near to her. Edward, in love with Bella, musters every ounce of self-control not to kill her. Killing’s his first instinct because he’s a vampire. This scene, a vivid dream of author Stephenie Meyer, sparked her imagination to write Twilight, the first book of a bestselling young-adult series.
From that original dream, Stephenie, a 30-something housewife and mom of three young boys, has birthed a four-novel series that has sent teen girls and women of every age swooning over the star-crossed love story of Bella and Edward.
I don't remember how I first heard of Barlow Girl; possibly the radio or by buying their first CD. I just went to their concert in Birch Run, MI, last weekend and loved it! Awesome girls, awesome testimony and values.
I am Justyne and i live in California, sadly. it's sad because i never get to see barlow girl on tour:( you guys should tour all around in california sometime! anyway i became a christian when i was four years old. and yes i do believe i completely understood at the time what i was doing. i have 2 dogs and 1 cat. i have parents that have never been divorced :) and a little bro. i go to a private christian school. well that is pretty much my life generally... :)
My friend received several Barlowgirl CD's for her birthday and I enjoyed them. After several months of begging, my mom gave me Another Journal Entry and How Can We Be Silent for Christmas. Barlowgirl, a song from Home for Christmas, and Love&War soon followed, and Barlowgirl is now my official favorite band. =) Jesus rocks!
