Welcome to Literacy Musing Mondays April 3 – April 9. As I mentioned last week, I am now co-hosting Literacy Musing Mondays. I am very excited and honored to be able to work with these wonderful ladies. If you get a chance go visit their blogs.

We have a guest poster this week Lux Guzon who shares her love of stories and how they can impact one’s life. I love what she has to say about the power of stories.

Power of Stories to Teach Us

About Unwavering Faith and Values

By Lux Ganzon

The stories we read in books don’t just entertain us and bring us to places beyond our wildest imagination. They teach us lessons, guide us, influence us, and mold us.

I was thinking about bestselling novels like Harry Potter, Divergent and The Hunger Games lately.

They’re about worlds different from ours, yet the parallelism is impeccable.

An ordinary person with extraordinary abilities and admirable boldness, unknown to that person until the situation calls for it.

It’s all about someone who is deep down good and genuine, who doesn’t want to keep quiet and follow an unjust autocrat blindly. Someone who is selfless enough to forget his /her discomfort and safety for the good of everybody and to protect his/her loved ones from tyranny.

They didn’t want to be heroes, but their world needed a hero, so that’s what they become.

They did not wait around for a saviour to help them out of their miserable situation. With what they have, with who they are, with nothing but their principle and intention to end evil and help the oppressed, they fought, they risked their lives, and they conquered.

I love books like these. Books that don’t just tell of happily ever after, and fairies and true love’s kiss—not that there’s something wrong with fairy tales. I grew up with Disney and I’ll always be thankful for it made my imagination fly.

But I love books that don’t sugar coat the truth in life. Books that tell me honestly that there will be obstacles, there will be monsters, there will be people in power who will try to control us and strip us of our freedom. It is our unwavering faith and values that we uphold that will keep us together as people regardless our color, gender, beliefs, or the language we speak.

For “While we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one.” (Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter)

Books with flawed, unapologetic, characters. Characters who choose their battles, who act not out of arrogance or thirst for fame, but only hopes to make things right and make their lives better without putting down anyone.

I love books that show us that it is our choice, far more important than our abilities that will determine how our lives will turn out.

What books do you love?

My Favorite Post of the Week

How To Stop Judging And Have More Peace.

By, Maree Dee from Embracing the Unexpected

 I loved this post, I was just talking to one of my daughters the other day about judging others and how harmful it can be to them and yourself. You never know the reason of why someone is the way they are, or why they do what they do. Maree talks about Taking a Non-Judgmental Stance and why it is so important.

    I love books about family dynamics and relationships; the struggles and ties that push and pull. I love historical fiction novels and books that make me really feel like I lived through it with them. Thanks for linking with us at Love to Learn. Pinned.
