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.

  • Beautiful Creation by Nancy J. Farrier
    Many years ago, I was tasked with getting a Christmas gift for a person I hadn’t shopped for before. I gave the gift a lot of thought. This person didn’t like any clothing that wasn’t cotton and they preferred neutral … Continue reading →
  • Advice to a Young Couple Facing a Crisis by James R. Coggins
    As an older Christian, I offer the following suggestions to those with less experience of the trials of life. When you are facing a crisis: 1. Admit the problem, to yourself and to those you trust. Do so before a … Continue reading →
  • What’s in Your Way?
    The Christian life has often been compared to a walk. We walk in faith. We keep moving no matter what stage of maturity we are in as Christians. It’s a marathon of growing and learning and yes, stumbling that lasts … Continue reading →
  • Implementing Changes by Julie Arduini
    I didn’t set any high goals for 2024, I figured I’d go with my word for the year, Illuminate, pray, and see where the Lord takes me. It’s still early in the year but I thought I’d share a little … Continue reading →
  • A New Release by Patricia Bradley
    I am preparing to drive to Nashville next week for the National Religious Broadcasters Conference where I will talk to podcasters, radio talk show hosts, and others about Christian Fiction and my books. I’ll also be signing copies of Fatal … Continue reading →
  • Anxieties by James R. Coggins
    “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 NIV). This verse doesn’t seem to have received much attention in recent years. It was a favorite verse in a previous generation. In our house growing … Continue reading →
  • A Milestone Birthday by Tara Randel
    My mother’s birthday is today. She is 90 years old. I can’t even fathom making it to that age. Some days I don’t think she can believe it either. It makes me wonder where the time has gone, while also … Continue reading →
  • To Tell the Truth by James R. Coggins
    I spent almost two decades as an editor with a denominational church magazine. I spent a few more years working with Christian newspapers. In all of those years, we were committed to telling the truth, the whole truth. We insisted … Continue reading →
  • Sometimes a Father. Sometimes a Friend.
    There’s a Christian song that has quickly become one of my favorites of all time. Maybe it’s yours as well. It’s called The Goodness of God. And there’s a line in the song that really grabbed me the first time … Continue reading →
  • A Message in Stone by Nancy J. Farrier
    Last fall I was struggling with some issues. Some were health related, others weren’t. The nice thing with struggles is that you find yourself praying more often, at least that was the case for me. One morning, on our walk, … Continue reading →
  • The Kingdom Mindset by Julie Arduini
    My bio across social media reads “Kingdom Minded.” To me, that says more than I’m a follower of Christ, a believer, or even a Jesus freak. As my prayer life intensifies, I see how important a Kingdom Mindset is. A … Continue reading →
  • And God sent a Great Fish
    Jonah 1:17 “1Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. I took this photo of the “Great Fish” statue in Joppa, Israel, just steps … Continue reading →
  • As the Oracles of God by James R. Coggins
    We are perhaps disturbed by 1 Peter 4:11: “If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.” We have had too much experience of men (and women) claiming divine authority for their own … Continue reading →
