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.

  • Dancing Through the Changes by Julie Arduini
    In my monthly newsletter I wrote how this year is my 20th wedding anniversary. It’s made me nostalgic, and when I pulled out the video and pictures, it shows clearly we were a 90’s wedding. There’s the clothes of course, and … Continue reading →

  • POWER OF HUMOR by Kristen Heitzmann
    How many things are better faced with humor? Take a minute and let this video give you a smile. I love how God built into us a resiliency to find a light heart even in the midst of storms, fear, or … Continue reading →
  • Prayer For the New Year by Tara Randel
    So here we are, just a few weeks into the new year. Is it just me, or is everyone as behind as I am? I’ve had to deal with the telephone company for multiple days now, which is never a … Continue reading →
  • Happy . . . Now?
    In the story I’m writing, I’m working with a character struggling with grief. I’ve long been fascinated with this part of life, maybe because it’s so universal. Writers are always looking for experiences that will touch all of us sooner … Continue reading →
  • THE DOCTOR ISN’T GOD by Hannah Alexander
    Since I write novels set in the medical field, I’ve realized for many years that doctors can be confusing. You can pull up medical studies online and read three or four totally opposing articles by as many very educated doctors. … Continue reading →
  • A Different Place by Camy/Camille
    Recently I was reading a book about making new habits and breaking bad habits. It was well-written and easily understandable, but it also talked a lot about the psychology behind behavior, which was fascinating to me as a psych major … Continue reading →
  • The Last Word by Julie Arduini
    I remember looking up at the television as Jimmy Fallon re enacted a video he saw. It was David Bowie’s new release, “Lazarus,” and Jimmy was talking about how a couple parts of the video seemed to mimic sketches Jimmy … Continue reading →
    WHY WRITERS WRITE WHAT THEY WRITE BY VICKI HINZE   If you ask ten writers why they’ve written the books they’ve written, you won’t get ten different answers. You’ll get a question: Which book?   Because each book captures, captivates … Continue reading →
  • Ready, Set, FREE!
    January! Definitely the time of year to curl up with a good book. Awww, you say, any time of the year is a good time for that. I couldn’t agree more! But somehow the long, cold days of this month—the … Continue reading →
