Guadalupe Telcontar Instagram: guadalupe_telcontar_ The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me: he hath sent me to preach to the meek, to heal the contrite of heart, and to preach a release to the captives, and deliverance to them that are shut up. Isaias LXI:1 The LORD has anointed me; He has commissioned me to bring glad tidings to the lonely and to heal the brokenhearted.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen. โ™ฅ I am currently available on Reedsy: At various unfixed times. My weekends are sometimes busier than my weekdays. I will read stories, like, comment, and reply to comments whenever I can.

Guadalupe Telcontar is a girl who is praying for and striving to follow God's Will every day. One of her first words was "Read"; she now reads to herself most of the time. She also enjoys writing the stories she wants to read but can't find anywhere. She prefers to write with a frequently-sharpened Staedtler HB2 pencil and ruled notebooks. AFOL (=Adult Fan of LEGO) Reader of Tolkien Dinosaur enthusiast I like the color green, animals, water, trees, stones, agates, obsidian, feathers, looking at the stars, following tracks and footprints, discovering new knowledge, ruins and wreckage, hiking, snowboarding, red geraniums, pasties, pizza, brownies, fudge, black chocolate, books, journals, reading, and writing.
