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.

  • Write what you DON’T know!
    By Jim Denney Saul Bellow once said, “A writer is a reader who is moved to emulation.” I know that’s true in my case. I’m a writer today because I wanted to emulate my literary heroes. Maybe you know that … Continue reading →
  • Historic Tarpon Springs
    When I last posted, I told you a little about my recent book, The Lady of Tarpon Springs. I’m planning to build on that theme for several weeks so, like the gal on the cover, hang onto your hats. As … Continue reading →
  • Lifting the Veil
    I recently read a book called Forevermore by Cathy Marie Hake. Hake is an amusing writer. I have read a few of her stories, and I am always laughing aloud throughout each story. As a writer, I was in awe … Continue reading →
  • Time is Running Out! (by Hannah Alexander)
    For those who are Amazon Prime members, you probably know that the Prime sale is drawing to a close. I made my purchase and will not return to the site. Too tempting to spend more money. But time has been … Continue reading →
  • Vacation Memories by Tara Randel
    This is the time of year when families are headed off on a grand adventure. School is out, the weather is great and once you gas up the car, it’s time to hit the road. Since so many of our … Continue reading →
  • Jack of All Trades?
    By Marilyn Turk My father used to warn me against being a “Jack of all trades and master of none.” I suppose he said that because I had so many interests and so much trouble making up my mind about … Continue reading →
  • Sorting it all out
    It’s a job almost everyone plans to do, yet few of us get to it amidst the busyness of life. Or, sometimes, lethargy sets in, and a person just can’t force herself/himself to take the first step in an undeniably … Continue reading →
  • Faith That’s Tested
      Two of my favorite activities are writing books and teaching Bible study. I love when I can combine the two. When I teach Bible study, I like looking at people in the Bible and considering how they might have … Continue reading →
  • The Lady of Tarpon Springs
    I’m excited to announce the launch of my latest book this week. The Lady of Tarpon Springs is set in Tarpon Springs, Florida. I wasn’t familiar with the town until I was visiting with my daughter who had lived in … Continue reading →
  • Renewed Vision
    After turning thirty, my eyes seemed to instantly go downhill. I remember squinting at an ibuprofen bottle and realizing with dismay that I needed to purchase a pair of reading glasses. I deeply loathed the idea of wearing glasses, and … Continue reading →
  • Looking for a Doctor? (by Hannah Alexander)
    I’ve received quite a bit of input lately from former patients who are having trouble finding a doctor who will listen and is willing to prescribe the meds needed. Mel did that for them when we had our own clinic, … Continue reading →
  • WHEN YOU DO WHAT YOU DO, WHAT DOES GOD FEEL? by Vicki Hinze
      I finished reading Karen Kingsbury’s Just Beyond the Clouds.  The story is a good one about two broken people having a difficult time moving on in their lives.  But it was a secondary element that fascinated me.   In it, … Continue reading →
  • Blessed by Adversity
    By Jim Denney I recently read a short story by W. Somerset Maugham called “The Verger.” If you’ve never read the story, here’s a SPOILER ALERT. That’s right, fair warning, I’m about to spoil the ending. But here’s a link … Continue reading →
