Introducing "Just like Eve"

Breaking from its traditional non-fiction format, whispers of mystery is currently following Karina’s fictional novel, Just like Eve. Karina began the themes explored here in 2008, in a non-fiction book she titled The Feminine Mystery, alluding to Betty Frieden’s 1963 classic, The Feminine Mystique, which explores what Frieden calls “the problem that has no name” -- a problem Karina believes is Eve’s second curse to desire her (earthly) man, not sexually, but as a completion to her. Realizing her discoveries were too controversial for non-fiction, Karina decided to clothe her message in fiction, which is not her forte. For years, she tried many story-lines and faced much writer’s block. In late 2017, she birthed Just like Eve, utilizing a backdrop she could write about with her own sport of tennis, mixed into the storyline of her heroine getting kicked out of church for being the object of the youth pastor's temptation. In April, 2018, she took a step of faith to pray the Spirit would inspire her with an entry to post every month. Her prayers have been honored.

Awake in a land of sleepers

When we find ourselves awake
in a land of sleepers,
the rebels are brought to drugs,
the sensitive to despair,
the comics to cynicism,
and the ordinary to insanity.
But the bold in God
are brought to life.

Feet in the Kingdom

Many walk with both feet in the world
and they think their life of misery
is a life to celebrate

Some see their misery
and put their first foot in the kingdom
and they think their straddling of two worlds
is the natural one this side of heaven

Few cling to Christ
crying for his divine arm
to draw their second foot into the kingdom
so they may join the prophets
and walk with God
