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.

  • Are You Still Writing?–Lyn Cote
    Are You Still Writing?–Lyn Cote This is a question I get fairly often from people I don’t know very well. I say, “Yes, that’s my job.” Then people ask, “How many books have you written?” And they act surprised when … Continue reading →
  • Paint Your Wagon, or, the Attack of the Earworm by Louise M. Gouge
    A Review I love the old musicals, especially those by the gifted composers and lyricists Alan J. Lerner and Frederick Loewe (My Fair Lady, Brigadoon, Camelot). When their musical Paint Your Wagon appeared in my television lineup the other night, … Continue reading →
  • The Prodigal’s Brother by Julie Arduini
    Since I finished reading Esther Fleece’s No More Faking Fine, I’ve really been intentional about the power of lament. I used to feel guilty for whining to God, or being real here, mad at Him. Now I realize He knows … Continue reading →
  • If You Look Close Enough…
      I’ll let you in on a little secret…most authors put pieces of themselves into our characters. Whether it be the hero or heroine, if you look close enough, you can see little pieces of the author in their personalities and … Continue reading →
  • Mentor or Mentee?
    By Marilyn Turk For the past year, I’ve wanted a writing mentor, someone who would advise me and help me on my writing journey. Ernest Hemingway is quoted as saying, “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one … Continue reading →
  • My Journey with God As I’ve Developed As a Christian Writer by Margaret Daley
    My Journey with God As I’ve Developed As a Christian Writer By Margaret Daley In the past few years my faith has deepened. Actually it has grown quite a bit through the years I’ve written for the Christian market. God … Continue reading →
  • Switchbacks (by Hannah Alexander)
    This past week, Mel and I hiked a breathtakingly beautiful trail up Casper Mountain in Wyoming. One thing about Wyoming I love is that we still have mountains and lakes and rivers and trails–all kinds of beauty–but fewer people crowd … Continue reading →
  • Healthy Mindset by Tara Randel
    Now that summer is right around the corner, it’s a great time of year to get outside and be active. As a writer, I spend long hours sitting in front of the computer. I do take breaks to stretch, but … Continue reading →
  • Writing is like Tennis?
    By Marilyn Turk Last weekend I watched a professional tennis tournament. As a social tennis player, I was amazed at the difference between how the professionals play and how I play I’m sure that most of the spectators shared the … Continue reading →
  • The case for historical fiction
    As a fiction author, I understand that sometimes professional historians have little use for historical novels because they think these books often have no basis in truth. But if the author has done her job, fictional stories can surreptitiously teach … Continue reading →
  • Tall Grass by Julie Arduini
    We live in a development on a no outlet street cul-de-sac. It’s private, safe, and we love it. One thing that sometimes throws me off track is a neighbor. A retiree, that lawn might be mowed once, twice, yes, even … Continue reading →
  • Happy National Paperclip Day!
    Today is National Paperclip Day! I know, if you are like me you’re thinking, really? There really is a day for everything, isn’t there. But did you know… Paperclips are not just for holding papers together. There are many other things that … Continue reading →
  • Six Feet Deep!
      By Nancy J. Farrier What did you think when you read that title? The first thing most people think is someone is getting buried. Six-feet-deep is synonymous with burial. Why is that?   There are several reasons. Most agree … Continue reading →
