Our Mission

We are Christians who both read and write Christian fiction. The goal for this blog is to talk about the books we read and about our spiritual journeys. So you’re just as apt to read a review or comments on a book–fiction or non-fiction–as you are to read a devotional or inspiring quote or about daily Christian life in our posts. On the weekends, we post about writing and welcome guest bloggers. It is our hope to build a community where we can interact, discuss matters of importance to us, encourage, share and lift spirits.

  • The Introvert Inlaw by Julie Arduini
    I didn’t have a definition for the longest time, but in recent years it became very obvious I’m not just an introvert, I’m an introvert’s introvert. People who don’t know me well find this odd because they have seen me … Continue reading →
  • And Every Gain Divine by Kristen Heitzmann
    Over Independence Day, I posted a less known verse from “America the Beautiful” because it resonated when we sang the song in church. Since then the words have continued to work in me, so I thought we could discuss it … Continue reading →

    We are called to meet together with other saints to form a bond in Christ. That sets us on higher ground. I don’t mean it makes us better than anyone else, I mean it gives us a lift. There are … Continue reading →
  • Thanks To Our Founding Fathers For Standing Firm
    It’s almost the Fourth of July and we all know what that means. Fireworks, barbeques, parades. Lots of outdoor fun. As enjoyable as all these things are, sometimes it’s easy to overlook the real reason we celebrate the holiday in … Continue reading →
  • Are You a Striver?

  • Called, But Not Equipped by Julie Arduini
