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 Many Unanswered Prayers Does It Take?

Jul. 31, 2022 by

God didn’t answer my prayers. Okay, I guess the appropriate way to write that would be God said no to my prayer. I really only prayed once, and no is an actual answer. (I forget that sometimes.) It seemed like

The Day I Realized I’m Not Invisible

Jun. 30, 2022 by

Sometimes I wonder if I’m invisible. I know I’m not, but sometimes it seems like other people don’t even notice I’m here. Like when I’m walking down the street, and they come straight at me. My husband says I need

Did You Think It Would Be Easy?

May. 31, 2022 by

Where did I get the idea life shouldn’t be so hard? Am I the only one surprised by how “not easy” the pathway is? This isn’t meant to be a poor-me-life’s-so-hard kind of post. It’s just that I often walk

The World Was Blurry But Now I See

Apr. 29, 2022 by

Underdogs Unite – Two Suggestions for Winning at Life

Mar. 31, 2022 by

I wanted St. Peter’s to go all the way. Of course, I’d never heard of the school before March Madness began. I caught their unexpected victory over Kentucky and couldn’t help but pull for the little commuter school in Jersey

Jan. 31, 2022 by

I paid for the last hot dog, but the guy behind the counter handed it to a stranger. After standing in line for most of the second half of the Washington vs Eagles game, I wasn’t at the top of
