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.

  • Camels help us cross deserts.
    It’s not easy, riding the unlovable/lovable ungainly beasts. I’ve had college students write about camels traveling desserts (sic), which still makes me laugh. It takes concentration riding camels because we’re continually pitched from one direction to the other and in … Continue reading →
