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.

  • What Would You Do? by James R. Coggins
    What would you do if you knew that the world would end tomorrow? Someone wiser and more famous than I am once responded, “I would plant a tree.” My wife and I bought a kitten. I am not saying that … Continue reading →
  • The Joy of Discovery by Nancy J. Farrier
    Last week we went to our youngest grandson’s first birthday. The party was held at a park and the kids loved that. There was shade and the weather was perfect. The kids could run and play and they had a … Continue reading →
  • How Did I Get Here & When Can I Leave by Julie Arduini
    It wasn’t too long ago I was in the middle of our local township park surrounded by spring flowers, beautiful trees, and small wildlife. Instead of inhaling the fresh air, I wiped a tear off my cheek and headed home. … Continue reading →
  • The Priestly Benediction Prayer
    The Priestly Benediction Amulet is another key proof of Israel’s long ownership of the land. Five hundred years older than the Dead Sea Scrolls, it was found in 1979 in the Valley of Hinnom between Old City Jerusalem and the … Continue reading →
  • James the Jewish Christian by James R. Coggins
    When the apostle Paul was converted, likely only a couple of years after Jesus’ resurrection, he stayed in Damascus for a while. In Galatians 1:18-19, Paul related what happened next: “Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted … Continue reading →
  • Why Amazon is a Threat to Human Rights by James R. Coggins
    Among the fundamental human rights are freedom of thought and freedom of expression. The first demands the second. There is not much point in having freedom of thought if you can’t express your thoughts. Thoughts are expressed in many ways. … Continue reading →
  • Agents of Light
    Recently, I was talking about my latest release, The Last to Know, and the question came up about how I personally dealt with writing dark subjects such as the villain in the book. The Last to Know features a team … Continue reading →
  • Holidays and Jeeps by Tara Randel
    Happy Memorial Day. Today we honor those who served our country. Some paid the highest price to keep our country free. We thank them and all those who choose to serve in the US military today. Long weekends are a … Continue reading →
  • Maria’s Muses Book Blitz Where Every Post is a Giveaway by Julie Arduini
    The author’s life is often a lonely one where victories are few. Books often take hundreds of hours to write, edit, revise, format, publish and market. It’s not for the weak! When authors can gather around and encourage each other, … Continue reading →
  • What Goes Wrong?
    I volunteer with Advocates for Freedom, and every morning I receive a text with the names of three missing teenagers to pray for. Some of them have been gone only days, but some have been gone months, even years. The … Continue reading →
  • The Book of James by James R. Coggins
    The book of James was written by “James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ” (James 1:1) This is most likely James, the brother of Jesus. It is remarkable that he describes himself simply as “a servant … Continue reading →
  • Coals of Fire by Nancy J. Farrier
    I needed new glasses so I went to an optical department—a busy place where I had to scan a QR code to get a place in line. As I waited for my turn, I observed the people who were working … Continue reading →
  • Living the Gospel by James R. Coggins
    David was one of the most learned theologians I have had the privilege of knowing. He was a seminary professor and a Bible college president. He wrote a number of learned but readable books. He was a member of various … Continue reading →
