The Southerner's Blog

Welcome to  the Southerner's Blog, which is written by me, Leah Kathryn! I hope you enjoy your visit... here's what you can expect to find, though I can't promise a weekly post due to a full life God has given me.


Learn when updates to the site or to the book have been made.


Get yourself a comfy spot to sit and fix on up a pot of hot tea! The Corner has lovely poetry, insightful articles, and "wonderful words of life." 


Step into Leah's life! Share moments of joy, days of peace, and the life of an only sister, surrounded by boys.  Life is not boring!


Where on most days, you'll get both baroque and good food.

This is the kitchen at my house, where Bach, Schubert and Tschaikowsky music flow on the CD player as Mom and I fix dinner. Get yourself a good recipe in here.


Writings with a historical flair.  From clothing of yesteryear, to opinions and research, there's always a bit of old-fashioned writing.


Just so you know stuff. What I believe. What God says in His Word.  And a lot of times, a mixture of all that.


If this is your very first visit to In the Presence of the Enemy,(by following a link here from another site) please visit the Home page.

A GUEST POST from Miss RJ @ Virtuous Girlhood!

Hey you all! This is RJ from VirtuousGirlhood.com and I’m guest posting today! Thank you Leah for having me. Today I am going to talk about one of my passions. Writing.

Everyone that knows me knows that I write. And I get asked alot why I write. And honestly, it’s kind of hard to explain why someone would spend hours at a time by herself with only music, a laptop, and sweatshirts for company. So why do I write?

I write because it is a part of me. I write becau...

DELETED SCENES from the book!

Posted on December 26, 2011 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Here is a "deleted" passage from my book. Actually, I simply cut out a portion, and revised the rest. Here is the original.



The time had arrived, that time which seemed to always be so far away had come!

It was Independence day, and 5:45 in the morning. Emma drowsily pried open one eye-lid but then shut it and rolled over on her side. Her room wasn’t that warm yet, as the...

LOL, here is a video I made with my brothers yesterday. It's just a "comedic spoof" so don't look at it like we're trying to be historically accurate or anything, we're obviously not. :) Anyway enjoy, it's kind of goofy I know, but that's why it's called a spoof video. :)

Check out "180", a 33 minute documentary produced by The Way of the Master-- "33 Minutes Which Will Rock Your World." I highly recommend it. It will open your eyes, and refresh the way you think about abortion.

The Unseen Truth (AN EXCERPT!)

Posted on May 10, 2011 at 12:29 AM Comments comments (0)

"Despite the “unseen truth”, that was known (and hoped for) by near all the fellows, there was a lot more to life as a soldier than what most everyone had expected. See, I can’t tell you the name of any young boy who enlisted that didn’t want to engage in combat. It was the thrill of being a soldier! Oh, the anticipation that soon you’d get a chance to do some damage to the enemy, and try to shorten the war a bit, even! Why enlist to fight the Yankees at all,...
