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.

  • Something Ventured…by Kristen Heitzmann
    Every new endeavor comes with some level of stress, it seems. While exciting, Indie Publishing has tipped my stress meter into the red. Told You So has had its professional edits and is awaiting one final proofread, then on to formatting by an expert to make all the inside elements work on all the devices and have […]
  • You Can Count On One Thing
    Autumn is my favorite season of the year. How about you? To me, the fall weather is perfect. I love the cooler temperature, for one. Not too hot and not too cold. Just perfect. With the change in the season comes changes in our daily activities. Summer fun ends and turns to the excitement of a new […]
  • Invisible Illness Awareness Reflections by Julie Arduini
    Last week I dedicated most of my personal blog posts to Invisible Illness Awareness Week. I shared our experience with our daughter, a 12 year old who has been diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, and Albrights Hereditary Osteodystrophy. I also wrote a guest post for Patient Worthy describing what is typical for our daughter is […]
  • Praise in Prayer by Camy Tang
    Hi guys! I’ve been blogging a lot about prayer lately, but it’s because my pastor is going through the Lord’s Prayer at church and the sermons are really hitting me. This past Sunday I felt God convicting me about my love for Him. The pastor talked about how the Lord’s Prayer starts with worship and […]
  • Awards by Tara Randel
    Writing can often be a solitary endeavor. Getting lost in the story lines and adventures of our characters is a joy to create. I know I always want to give the readers a journey they’ll never forget. But how do I know when a reader enjoys my book? Unless I receive reviews, I can’t be […]
  • WARNING by Hannah Alexander
    Several years ago I had a particularly stressful month. Halfway through the month a streak of pain crossed my shoulders and down my spine and legs and would not relent. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t function. Finally I gave up and went to see my family doctor. He told me I had fibromyalgia and gave […]
  • Why We Can’t Afford to Mistake Kindness as Weakness Anymore by Vicki Hinze
    WHY WE CAN’T AFFORD TO MISTAKE KINDNESS FOR WEAKNESS ANYMORE   By   Vicki Hinze     We’re weary of people who do not say what they mean and mean what they say. We want truth and honesty. We don’t want belligerence. We don’t want rude. And we don’t want weak people manipulating us by […]
  • Music in Writing and Reading by Julie Arduini
      Julie’s note: This was originally intended to be an article for an ezine but the project didn’t move forward. I thought I would share here with you as the theme was music. Not only do writers use music, but I do as a reader, too. Consider these whether you write or read. Do you use any of […]
  • I’m Back! by Tara Randel
    It’s been a while since I posted. Life has a way of sneaking up on you. I had two back-to-back deadlines for the end of August and the first of September, one for a mystery which will be out in 2016, the other for a Christmas Collection releasing in October. Made those deadlines, but I […]
  • Listen to God’s Whisper by Maureen Lang
    This past Sunday at church, a visiting speaker reminded us to say yes to the opportunities God puts in our path. I have to admit I don’t always follow God’s gentle nudging. There have been times when I’ve felt led to reach out to someone, or even just to voice a thought or question, either […]
  • Stressed Much? by Hannah Alexander
    How’s your stress level? I recently listened in on an anxiety symposium that was quite helpful. In it, some experts in the use of alternative supplements suggested several possible aids that could help with a person’s stress level without resorting to prescription medications. For instance, GABA or GABA Calm might help some people, while 5-HTP […]
  • Prayer – a parent and child relationship by Camy Tang
    At church, our pastor is starting a series on the Lord’s Prayer, and he started with an overview of prayer. Something that really struck me was the reasoning behind the five different parts of the Lord’s Prayer – Adoration, Submission, Petition, Confession, Protection. Our pastor gave an example of how sometimes when teenagers are off […]
    It’s that time of year when my royalty statements come in, from four different companies. Believe me, it cost more to send a couple of them than the amount printed on the statements. What’s the best royalty statement (or check) you ever got? Many of us are disappointed, or begrudgingly shake our heads with acceptance […]
