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 Christmas Story from a Writer’s Perspective
    By Marilyn Turk The more I study the craft of writing, the more I read like a writer. I look at how the author tells the story, what adjectives and verbs they use, whose POV they use, and how many … Continue reading →

  • Loving the Green by Hannah Alexander

  • Power Talk by Vicki Hinze

  • Letter to an Aspiring Author or Editor
    When I was a college English and humanities professor, students sometimes asked questions about my writing life. Some hoped to become writers themselves and asked me how they could achieve their dreams. Here’s a sample of the answers I gave … Continue reading →
  • It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!
    It’s finally here. With Thanksgiving over we are now officially in the Christmas season. And when I think about Christmas, I find myself thinking about Christmas decorations. So today, I though I’d share some of my favorite craft ideas for this Christmas season. … Continue reading →
