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.

  • Beauty Secret by Hannah Alexander
      I’m letting the male side of Hannah Alexander’s personality shine today by example. He smiles a lot. That’s because he’s a happy person, but also because he’s a friendly person and was taught as a child that a smile … Continue reading →

  • He Knows
    by Elizabeth  Goddard A month ago I lost my mother to diabetic complications. I knew it was coming. Eventually. We all know that no matter what we do in this life, we’ll come to the same end. The Bible tells us, … Continue reading →
  • When the Creativity is Epic by Julie Arduini
    My last post I shared how May is a whirlwind month full of two book releases, an out-of-state wedding, and our son’s high school graduation. I thought today I’d share part of the whirlwind, an aspect we enjoyed during our … Continue reading →
  • Spellbinding by Kristen Heitzmann
    I’ve recently been captivated by a (general market) Regency period mystery series. I might have purchased the first on Audible and finally got around to listening. Almost at once, I realized this is quality writing, the time period language, the rich … Continue reading →

  • Scrolls, Books and EReaders by Tara Randel

  • A Place of Peace
    This picture reminds me of a place we explored a few years ago. It’s near Lake Tahoe where the hiking trails never seem to end, where we saw our first black bear in the woods–it was a baby bear. Quite … Continue reading →
  • Manly Readers by Kristen Heitzmann
    #ManlyBookClubNames Brewskies & Books, followed by manly yoga, aka broga.   I admit I laughed hard at this example from a recent trending Twitter hashtag #manlybookclubnames. It was spurred by a New York Times article http://nyti.ms/1rvsEeC about men’s book clubs. One … Continue reading →
  • Feed an Author. Write a Review.
      I’m beginning to wonder if giving away books in all the contests and blog interviews has been a good idea, generally speaking. I think it can certainly win a new fan if a book winner reads and enjoys your … Continue reading →

  • Creativity: Work or Play?
    The other day I was looking through some of my notes and discovered a marketing idea I’d forgotten about. I planned to gather various quotes from my books and pair them with something visual—a photograph I’d bought or shot that … Continue reading →
