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.

  • My eBooks are FREE Saturday! By: Julie Arduini

  • It’s Graduation Day…to all the grandparents out there

  • Flirting with My Ex by Julie Arduini
    You know authors can be a tad dramatic, right? Such is the case with yours truly. The post title isn’t as scandalous as it sounds, but it was an awesome lesson I needed. This is our son’s first semester of … Continue reading →
  • Rediscovering Faith by Tara Randel
    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 How many times have you recited this scripture? Perhaps studied the concept of faith? If you’ve spent any amount of time in church, … Continue reading →
  • A check on our shrinking attention spans
    It’s occurred to me more than once as I scan historical references, novels, even old movies, that the attention span of the average entertainment consumer has shifted quite a bit. Perhaps the most noticeable changes began as far back as … Continue reading →
  • One Room at a Time by Hannah Alexander

  • Deepening Your Prayer Life
    There are times when shout out prayers are all one can manage. Like when you’re raising infants … on -3 hours of sleep. When, upon learning your now adult daughter wants to go into international missions, and she begins to talk … Continue reading →
  • From Dream to Reality

  • Just God
    by Elizabeth Goddard As Christians we each believe ourselves to be followers of Christ. We say Jesus is Lord and Savior. Some say one or the other, but that’s a different discussion. We call out to God, ask Him for … Continue reading →
  • Lesson in Rejection from Julie Arduini
    Although I love writing fiction, I also love teaching Bible studies. So far I don’t feel the call to write them, a la Beth Moore or Lysa TerKeurst, I’d rather purchase their materials and teach on them all day long. … Continue reading →
  • Against Fear and Worry by Kristen Heitzmann
      How easy is it to be overwhelmed by the challenges we face, to have our hopes unmet and our fears realized? We all have things we feel called to, yet not all bear the fruit we expected and desired. … Continue reading →

        For most of us, life is extremely busy. Our days fly by with things we must do. Make the kids breakfast. Get them off to school. Work, run errands, carpool, chauffeur the kids to practice…and the list goes … Continue reading →
