MB Dahl
Writer of fiction, warrior at heart
There’s more, right? School, work, family, good times and bad. At the end of the day, we hope for more. I write about the more. The more where we let loose and see ourselves through the eyes of love. The magical more of life and faith in the unseen. The more whispered by hope to our struggling hearts.
If we could see how much more God can make of our life, would we still be quiet? Struggle with our weight? Be anxious? Hide our flaws? Stay broken? Or would we be strong and outspoken? Warriors at heart? Courageous and free? My stories, studies, and scripts ask these questions and explore our brokenness under the sweet mercy of God. They show how the average become unique, and the weak become warriors.

How the Average Become Unique and the Weak Become Warriors

Nov. 30, 2021 by

I write stories about how the average become unique, and the weak become warriors, but I don’t always explain how this transformation happens. It’s not really something I can spell out step by step. God uses different circumstances, people, and

The Secret Between Who You Are and Who You Want to Be

Oct. 31, 2021 by

I’m going to tell you a secret. Before I do, though, you should probably know my definition of a secret. It’s something only the person holding it knows. Every once in a while I’ll ask my husband to tell me

An Impossible Goal, Failure, and Warriors Don’t Stop

Sep. 30, 2021 by

I set an impossible goal. My goal was to run a 5k—the entire race (as opposed to walking). For many of you, that probably sounds like easy beans, but for me, it was a stretch. When I first set the

Taking a Risk, Making a Friend, and Expanding My World

Aug. 31, 2021 by

I pick up hitchhikers. I know, I know, it’s not safe. Believe me I’ve heard all about it. I’ve even had an experience or two that told me I wasn’t on the brightest side of things. But I have rules

Facing My Delusions of Grandeur and Still Dreaming Big

Jul. 31, 2021 by

As I write this, I am fighting the reality that I probably won’t pull off my big book launch plan. My plan involved videos and being witty and lots of social media exposure. But at 11:08 pm on Friday night,

5 Things I Learned from My Mom – A Tribute to Love

Jun. 30, 2021 by

I saw mom a week before her fall. We talked, played games, went out to dinner, and celebrated her birthday early. And she loved me well. My visit with her reminded me of good times from long ago when we

More than a Warrior and Not My Own Person

Jun. 1, 2021 by

I think I’ve figured something out about the whole warrior thing. Being a warrior is not the goal. There’s more to it than that. I came up with the warrior thing a few years ago when I chose “Warrior” as

For the Good of the Novel Someone Needs to Speak Up

Apr. 29, 2021 by

Adventure Lies on the Other Side of Yes

Mar. 30, 2021 by

Opportunities = Adventure We can shun the opportunities of life, or we can face them. When adventure peeks around the corner, we can walk toward it or turn the other way. Last week, I thought avoidance might be the best
