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.

  • Beneath Skin Deep by Hannah Alexander

  • October Causes by Julie Arduini
    Twenty-seven causes and awareness campaigns. That’s what I saw when I Googled this month and the awareness campaigns. I thought I would share a couple that are personal to me, and offer encouragement if those are your reality. National Bullying … Continue reading →
  • Gratitude by Kristen Heitzmann
    There were these ten lepers who cried out to Jesus for mercy. It hurts to imagine people being eaten away by such a horrible disease. We can see them hollering for the kind of mercy a renowned healer could give. Jesus said, … Continue reading →
  • Old Things…
    It’s finally fall in Texas, which means the humidity has left the area until next spring (for the most part). The days are turning crisp and the leaves are beginning to turn. This is my favorite time of year because … Continue reading →

  • Permission to Breathe by Kristen Heitzmann
    It seems there’s always so much to do. For me: writing, research, reading, listening, watching, praying, anything that inspires the creative process. Then there’s networking and social media, keeping up with Facebook friends, Twitter contacts, etc. I appreciate, enjoy, and … Continue reading →
