Life with Jesus

I’ve been reading this fascinating piece of quality literature. It’s called Beth’s Diary. It is pink and it has a dalmation on it. PS- all grammatical errors are the purposeful.

On the cover: My class is smart but I’m smarter. The end.

Dear Diary, I have really improved in handwriting [written barely illegible]. I have a boyfriend [never really a boyfriend]. his name is Chad. I like him to.


Chad Loudermilk and Marshall Morris both like me. Their very cute. Both of them. Chad’s cute and Marshall’s funny. How do I know they like me? You see it all started when I asked my dad to know when a boy likes you. He said “When he teases you. Why?” I changed the subject. So now the word “tease” is very serious to me.

Leah to 2 years old




I was chasin Ian and so was Jessica. Jessica and I caught him and I tripped and fell flat on my face and now I have a peanut butter nose. I am going to vote for Bob Dole cause Bill Clinton is a freak show.


Leah started a diary. Here is what it is:

I do not like Ariel.

I do not like Heidi

Brian is a dweeb.


I spent the night with Emily last night and she asked complicated questions. I like to put things in a different way so I’ll put these questions in a play-like form.

Q (Emily): Do you believe in the devil?

A(Beth): I believe in an evil force.

Q: Do you think Methodists are laid back?

A: Oh yeah.

Q: Why do bad things happen to good people?

A: I can’t explain. I’m not God, Emily.


Dear Di,

Today in the name of God, I am a juniior higher. They kidnapped us at 7:00 and took us to the Kettle and had breakfast. I also went to the mid high sunday school class. Debbie taught us. We got a turtle named Delilah.


Okay, kids. Ta-ta for now. I have one more section to do but I’m older so it’s mostly the juicy stuff.

  1. Beth’s Diary is my favorite book on the whole planet.No seriously, I could read it everyday.
    I can’t wait for the next installment,it only gets better.

  2. HAHAHAHA! The funny thing is…I actually remember us being kidnapped and taken to the Kettle for breakfast.  I don’t actually remember the converstation about the devil/Methodists/good people but I do remember having one about me never ever wanting to get married. LOL! Good times, good times. I cannot wait for the next one! I wonder if its going to include some silly Aldersgate Youth Group drama…(holding my breath in anticipation!)

  3. hahahaha.  i love it. do you still talk to emily?
    oh… and….  “Beth and Marshall sittin  in a tree..” (cause marshall just fits in the song better than chad.. plus… he’s cuter.)
