Anomaly By: Krista McGee

Anomaly By: Krista McGee

The world has been destroyed by nuclear war, with the planet  left uninhabitable a group of ten scientists have created a new world underground, a society of engineered humans. They have each been created with a specific purpose and task to perform within the underground world. However, there are no emotions, no relationships, they complete their task and aim to be as efficient as possible.

Thalli is different, she asks questions, has a curiosity about the world that is looked down by others. For seventeen years she has managed to hide the fact that she is an anomaly, and now her life is in danger. Her days are numbered until the scientists are done using her as a test subject and decide that she will be annihilated. As she waits Thalli begins to hear stories about the Designer, someone who has a bigger plan for her life much bigger than she could have ever dreamed of.

If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, Divergent, Farenheit 451, and other dystopian books you must read Anomaly! McGee approaches the dystopian books from a Christian perspective.

Anamoly will glue you to each page until the very end, with strong characters you want to learn more about, you will identify with Thalli as she searches to learn more about the Designer and what the means for her life.  The only negative about this book is you will have to wait until next summer to read the second one.

This book is a must read for everyone’s reading list.

Right where I belong.

Where has the time gone? I knew I was behind on posting but I didn’t realize it has been a month! So much has been happening, this is going to be a relatively quick run down of the last month and a half.

As you’ve probably heard on May 19, 20 and 31st Oklahoma was hit with a string of tornadoes, since than I have been out with my church helping with clean up efforts and anything else that may have been needed from answering phones, preparing food and working directly with those affected. In the middle of June I changed jobs and accepted a position with the Food Bank to work in their Disaster Relief Center for the recovery efforts.

Since moving to Oklahoma I’ve had two separate jobs, both of which were more of resume builders and to pay the rent, I knew they weren’t where I wanted to be, I knew I belong in a job working with a nonprofit and helping people. Working at a job where I didn’t help people I felt off, like something just wasn’t right. I didn’t know what it was at the time. I wasn’t sure if it was still adapting to a new city/state, still trying to find my way or just life in general.

I’ve been at my job at the Food Bank for three weeks as of today, and it has been amazing how much of a change I feel in my everyday. Waking up knowing that I right where I belong, that this job is what I am supposed to be doing and it is exactly where I am supposed to be. Normally, I tend to be a worrier, concerned what the future might hold or where I will be, although this position may only be temporary, and by the end of summer may not exist depending on what happens. I am not concerned. I am worry free, at peace, because I know God is in control. That He has placed me in this position and is taking care of me at every moment, throughout everyday.

Right now I am grateful and beyond blessed to announce to the world that where I am right now is exactly where God has prepared me to be. Through numerous job interviews and rejection letters, it has all been worth it to know that right know I am right where I belong.
