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.

  • Saturday Night Adventure by Tara Randel
    This weekend my husband invited me to come along on a night trail ride with his Jeep club. As long as he drives, I’m a happy passenger. Plus, the ride was in a state forest about an hour from our … Continue reading →
  • The Apple Tree Encouragement by Julie Arduini

  • Israel, A World of Firsts – Delores Topliff
    For me, my first trip to Israel was an amazing assortment of first-time discoveries. I kept finding myself in settings that were 3-D living reenactments of Bible scenes, from shepherds striding in front of their flocks of sheep, to camel … Continue reading →
  • Fear of Death by James R. Coggins
    Quite a number of years ago, I talked with my mother, who was then a senior citizen, about the reality of death. “Oh,” she said. “I’m not worried about that. I came to terms with death in 1948” (that is, … Continue reading →
  • Seeing God’s Design by Nancy J. Farrier

  • And Even More Famous Coggins Quotations by James R. Coggins
    After a writer is dead, some anonymous scholar often collects the best quotes from all of his written works, reducing his laboriously written tomes to a few sound bites. A while back, I decided to save this anonymous scholar some … Continue reading →
  • Do you have a secret place?
    Several years back, the movie, War Room came out. The movie featured drug salesman Tony and his wife Elizabeth who is a real estate agent. Outwardly, they appeared successful, with a beautiful daughter. But behind the scenes, their marriage was … Continue reading →
  • One Wrong Turn by Julie Arduini
    Earlier this week I had a day full of local driving. The area is under construction and this part of town isn’t one I drive often. Our daughter was at a campus apartment for a ministry meeting and when she … Continue reading →

  • Jesus and Angels by James R. Coggins
    Hebrews 1:1-2:4 is another Bible passage where our preconceived ideas have limited our understanding. Hebrews 1 starts by saying, “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has … Continue reading →
  • God’s Angels, Part III by Peggy Webb
    Every Sunday, I come home from church blessed and filled with joy by the little angels I teach, God’s children. Hank and Nat are two of my youngest, both adorable, enthusiastic, music-loving children. Hank has an impish grin and an … Continue reading →
