I Understood Heaven Because His Voice Was Like Thunder

I Understood Heaven Because His Voice Was Like Thunder and Grade School Bathrooms Have Incredible Acoustics by Alanna Rusnak

We had three types of clothing: school clothes (clean, buttoned, presentable), play clothes (stained, torn, patched), and church clothes (all the pretty dresses). Church clothes were the most sacred because looking adorable was the way we fooled the little old ladies into thinking we were wonderful children.

"Such lovely, well behaved girls you have, Carolyn." We would smile sweetly and sway with demure charm, making our dressed swish against our knees as they patted our heads and congratulated our mother. We knew her humble thanks his her true response of "you should see them at home in their grass-stained overalls, digging for worms and wielding sticks like swords!"...


Alanna Rusnak is an author, editor, and publisher, and is still connected to the very same church where she's now employed as their online manager and graphic designer specialist (she made those titles up herself!—her actual job title is Creative Communications). With three publications under her belt and one on the way, Alanna dreams of a life where writing is her only career obligation.
