About Charity

Charity Bishop is funny, quirky, analytical, a little sentimental, and occasionally forgetful, with an offbeat sense of humor, a tendency to like sci-fi, and a storehouse of knowledge about “useless trivia.” She gets fixated on learning things, and obsesses over them until she knows everything there is to know about them, then looks for something new to learn. She gets bored with “same-ness,” but is good at impartiality and seeing both sides in an argument. In fact, she’s likely to argue both sides for the sheer fun of it. She grew up in the church and was saved at a young age, but re-evaluated and re-dedicated her life to Christ three years ago. Since then, God has encouraged her to trust Him with her life and future – which sometimes is an uphill battle for a stubborn girl. As she struggles with understanding His ways along with her characters, He gently reveals the answers. He’s her co-author, both in the stories she tells and in her very own story. Her day job is a magazine editor, and her hobbies (other than writing books) include over-analyzing everything she comes into contact with, vigorously defending various incarnations of Sherlock Holmes against perceived injustices, irritating her friends with theological musings, and MBTI typing fictional characters.

    Charity, I just finished reading your article on Francis Ouimet and wow, that was amazing. I’m reminded again of how much I love that movie even though it’s been at least 4 years since I’ve seen it. I just put it on hold. That’ll be something fun to watch during my break next week. Well done!

    • Well, thank you! =)

      I was hoping it wouldn’t be too redundant, since I wrote it from memory and THEN watched the movie again. It’s wonderful, it truly is. But then, I’m a bit biased in favor of Stephen Dillane, so…

      I’m working today, but maybe this evening I can e-mail or call you, and we can discuss what fun thing to do while you’re here the night before the tea. Seems like we ought to celebrate Halloween somehow!

      • I’m working tonight but perhaps you could call tomorrow evening. I’m nearly done with my creative writing project for my lit class and I’m so tired of it that I don’t even really care what type of a grade I get. Then again, I guess I really do care. Maybe it will tickle my professor’s funny bone. If I get a good grade I’ll probably post it on fanfiction.net. At least I think it’s fun. Teachers can be so darn difficult to please. I’ve worked on it for so long that I’m starting to speak in rhyme. Eeek!

        I’m looking forward to having fun. Fun is good!

        • I’ll do that then. Although if you see “Major Crimes” before then, I’ll hear your scream of rage across the miles. ;) Good luck with your creative writing project! I’m sure the teacher will enjoy it. =)

          • Oh no, oh no, oh no! I don’t want to give a scream of rage. I want things to stay the way they are. I don’t want Rusty TO LEAVE! Wahhh! Can you tell I’m heading towards being very emotional? I’m so very attached to him. I’m watching this episode tonight after work, no question.

          • Who the heck does Daniel Dunn think he’s kidding? After that thorough talking-to Sharon gave him before, does he really think he can get away with punching Rusty like that?! My gosh, the man is insane! Not only is he on Sharon’s death wish list but he’s on mine now too. Oooooh, I despite him!

            That seriously was an awesome episode and i think that means Rusty is STAYING! Yeah!

          • Here’s the deal — how stupid is this man, to punch a kid who is being looked after by a COP, who works with — gee whiz, a room full of COPS? That takes some major lack of brain function right there. You do not mess with cops’ kids! I hope for the season finale next week they don’t skip some sort of confrontation, because I want to see Sharon take him down!

  2. Yay, the issue looks great again, as usual. I’m looking forward to reading it very much, when I find the time….

  3. Great Femnista! I loved reading everyone’s contributions – and getting to be a part of the process! You did a great job with pictures Charity, I loved comparing the “real” with the movie, and you found pictures for almost everyone.

  4. Nice theme! There were things in there I had no idea were based on real life. For instance, I’d been deliberately avoiding ‘The Vow’ because it looked like a sappy chick-flick in the adverts, but if it really happened (more or less)… DUDE!! That’s suddenly so much for interesting to me. I’m planning to rent it next week.

  5. Yay for the new issue! It looks wonderful Charity and I’m looking forward to sitting back and reading everyone’s articles as soon as I get a chance this week =)

  6. Congrats on the new issue! I look forward to reading it! (BTW, sorry for the lack of comments lately, but it takes about six tries for WordPress to successfully let me log in every time I visit…)

  7. This issue – as usual – looks great! Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to download it this morning. Hopefully late this afternoon I’ll be able to take a look at it. YAY!

    Thanks for ALL of your hard work in putting this together, Charity.

    • I feel like this issue was “rushed” for me, because I had so much going on that week (including a funeral) but fortunately, all the submissions were so fantastic, it turned out terrific anyway! =)
