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.

  • Times that Try the Soul by Vicki Hinze
    There’s little doubt that we are collectively embroiled in a season that tries the soul.  It doesn’t matter which side of an issue, an event, or what persuasion you happen to be personally, politically or professionally, at present it is seemingly … Continue reading →
  • Climbing the Tallest Mountain by Nancy J. Farrier
    A few weeks ago, my daughter and two grandsons came for a visit. The boys, ages two and five, accompanied us to the park or on short walks, but one day I took our five-year-old grandson, Jimmy, on a longer … Continue reading →
  • Wanting With God by Bridget A. Thomas
    “I want it!” How many of us have heard a toddler wailing in a store about a toy or candy they wanted. Those little ones can scream so loud and make you think something catastrophic is happening, when it is … Continue reading →
  • Detours by Julie Arduini
    The last couple years have been full of challenges, am I right? This was my first Mother’s Day without my mom, and I’m so thankful our daughter had her junior prom that weekend as it really distracted me. Junior year … Continue reading →
  • Beautiful May Days by Tara Randel
    Can you believe it’s May already! Here in Florida, the sun has been shining and the days are longer, along with the temperatures rising. But it’s never too hot to spend a day with my daughter at our favorite place. … Continue reading →
  • Using your Gifts to BENEFIT Others — by Kathy Carmichael
    In my last blog post, I talked about the talents we have been gifted by God. I wrote about glorifying God through the use of his gifts. But there is another side to this coin. You can also put God … Continue reading →
  • Thou Shalt Not: A Short Story by James R. Coggins
    The words troubled him. John read them over again. They seemed so archaic. So judgmental. So negative. So out of keeping with the rest of the book. He read them again: “Thou shalt not.” The next day, he returned to … Continue reading →
  • It’s almost Mother’s Day!
    May is one of those beautiful months. The bleakness of winter is replaced by new life everywhere. Spring wildflowers become God’s special gift to each of us. And it’s the month we set aside to celebrate another gift from God. … Continue reading →
  • The Battle Challenge by Nancy J. Farrier
    Living in rural Southern Arizona comes with some challenges. The extreme heat. The dry weather and dust. And the critters. We have javalina that roam in our area. Javalina look like wild pigs, but they are a peccary, not related … Continue reading →
  • Nora’s Review: The Key to Everything by Valerie Fraser Luesse

  • The Calling One One Wants: Pioneer by Julie Arduini
    I learned a few years ago there is such a thing in faith as the pioneer. The pioneer is someone who sees/hears/reads/receives information from the Lord a little bit ahead of everyone else. It’s a lonely calling full of rejection … Continue reading →
  • Aspects of God by Kathy Carmichael
    Recently I worked on two nonfiction Christian projects and, as I worked on them, I believed and still do, that in doing so I was fulfilling my calling. God has given each of us gifts, talents and skills He hopes … Continue reading →
