Becoming Harry Potter: Slytherin’s heir #MNBHP


Becoming Harry Potter: Slytherin’s heir Labels. At one point or another we have all either given one to someone or received one.

Becoming Harry Potter: Parselmouth #MNBHP


Harry is labeled a Dark wizard because of an “inherited” skill. Ernie Macmillan is essentially saying the skill makes the person and not the other way around. Hopefully most of us know not to take Ernie seriously in forming our opinion of Harry’s character, but how many of us take Ernie-like judgment statements as fact rather than prejudice (pre judgment)? How many things do we believe about others just because someone says they are so without getting to know the person ourselves?… Read More »

Becoming Lord Voldemort: Master of Quirrell #MNBHP


This post is titled Becoming Lord Voldemort, but it’s really not hard to become him. Most of us battle with self-centeredness. The real challenge is admitting to that Voldemort tendency within ourselves and turning away from it. When we feel the me-first urge, we need to remember Harry—the boy who has a “saving people” thing—and ask ourselves: Is placing myself above everyone else worth becoming more like Lord Voldemort? Or would I rather have a “saving people” thing? Share your answer with us using #MNBHP. Read More »
