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.

    I have an acquaintance who, through no fault of her own, is a single mother. No matter what their skills and resources, single mothers have it rough. The responsibilities are heavy. A while back, I got a call for help. … Continue reading →
  • This Picture!
    I’ve seen this picture many times before, but for some reason, this time, the sacrifice that was made for us by the family of a fallen soldier really got to me. As an author, when I create heroes for my … Continue reading →
  • Remembrances by Nancy J. Farrier
    Every year on Memorial Day, my parents would take us to visit the graves of family members who had died. We took flowers, water, and a trowel to plant flowers next to the headstone. Reading the inscriptions helped to learn … Continue reading →
  • Are We Called to Write?
    Many years ago, I read a blog post about whether a writer is called by God to write. Since that time, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about that blog and whether I was called to write or if … Continue reading →
  • Glory by James R. Coggins
    On the night before His arrest and crucifixion, Jesus prayed for His immediate followers and for those of us who would become His followers in the future. This prayer is recorded in John 17:1-26. I had read this prayer many … Continue reading →
  • The Fountain of Youth Conspiracy by Peggy Webb
    I recently saw a TV ad that made me stand up in my chair and say to the screen, “No! Just no!” I wanted to kick furniture, but I was afraid of breaking my toe, so I refrained. The ad … Continue reading →
  • Romantic Poetry by James R. Coggins
    She asked for my help in studying for her English exam. She is an accountant and does not get poetry. It gave me an opportunity to reacquaint myself with English poets of the 18th and 19th centuries. This was the … Continue reading →
  • God’s Lessons Found in Christian Suspense
    I love the lessons that can be found in Christian fiction, and God bless the authors who strive to include God’s love and forgiveness in their books. No matter what the hero and heroine are facing, God is there with … Continue reading →
  • A Special Trip by Tara Randel
    Florida offers a variety of memorable locations to enjoy. That’s one of the reasons I love living here. The weather is pretty awesome, so I can take a day trip and enjoy both the sights and the sunshine. Here we … Continue reading →
  • Never, Ever Give Up by Julie Arduini
    I love a good underdog story. I’m energized when I see potential in someone and they start to believe it. But I also tend to isolate myself from people who in my opinion ignore God’s love, their calling, and the … Continue reading →
  • AI, Good or Bad?
    AI= Artificial Intelligence Should authors use AI in writing their books? Will AI replace writers? Is AI evil? Is it wrong to use AI to research characters…These are questions I’ve seen addressed for weeks now, but since I had not … Continue reading →
  • Love and Hate by James R. Coggins
    I had read John 15 many times but never noticed the juxtaposition of a passage on love and a passage on hate. In John 15:9-17, Jesus commanded His followers repeatedly to “love each other as I have loved you.” In … Continue reading →
  • God’s Children by Peggy Webb
    Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name, welcomes me. Mark 9:37 Sam is one of the adorable children in the Sunday school class I co-teach with Donna Rogers in the little country church built by my ancestors. Our … Continue reading →
