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.

  • A Dream Come True by Julie Arduini
    One thing authors are known for are active imaginations. Before starting out, I’ve heard confessions about book signings with long lines and a cramped hand, a cardboard cutout of them holding their bestsellers on display at Barnes and Noble, and … Continue reading →
  • An Invitation To A Party…
    What would you do if you woke up one day and couldn’t remember anything about your life? Not what your name was, when you were born. Not even who your parents’ are. I can imagine it would be pretty scary. … Continue reading →
  • Bouchercon 2018
    A week ago, I found myself in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, FL at the historic Vinoy Renaissance Hotel attending the 49th Annual Bouchercon 2018 or The Anthony Boucher Memorial World Mystery Convention. I’ll be honest, for a big reader, I’d … Continue reading →
  • Storm Warning
    By Marilyn Turk As I write this, I’m glancing out my window to see what this year’s first tropical storm or maybe hurricane is bringing to my neighborhood. So far, we’ve gotten only rain, despite the Weather Channel’s dire warnings. … Continue reading →
  • Do You Love Autumn?
    “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.” – Ecclesiastes 3:1 I grew up in the north. So fall was a refreshing time of year. After the hot summer days, the air would turn crisp. … Continue reading →
  • Do You Remember? (by Hannah Alexander)
    I was alone at home when we were attacked seventeen years ago. I received the horrible news from my writing buddies online, and the shock of it sank in more and more deeply as the day wore on. Do you … Continue reading →
  • Imagination Gone Wild by Nancy J. Farrier
      There are times when having a writer’s overactive imagination can give you so many possibilities for a story idea that you don’t know where to start. Seeing something unique, or even ordinary, can set off a chain of ideas … Continue reading →
  • A Holy Calling
    Opinion by Jim Denney “Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn’t matter. I’m not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn’t make us better, then what on earth is it for?” … Continue reading →
  • Lyn Cote Asks What’s Your Favorite Title?
    What’s the title of your favorite book? One of my favorites is At Home in Mitford, Jan Karon’s first in Mitford series. A few of her other titles are Somewhere Safe with Someone Good and Come Rain or Come Shine. … Continue reading →
  • The Valkyrie in Me
    At some time in the dim, dark past, a Viking Valkyrie visited Ireland or Scotland or England, fell in love a warrior from that land, and left her mark on my matrilineal DNA. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to … Continue reading →
  • Jesus Wept by Julie Arduini
    I chuckle when I read the title of this post. Years ago, when I was new in Christian faith, I helped out with youth group. Anytime, and I mean anytime we challenged the kids to memorize a verse or create … Continue reading →
  • Here Comes Fall…
    With the official start of Fall less than 20 days away, it sure doesn’t feel much like it here in Texas. Even though the local weathermen are warning we have a long road ahead filled with many hot days still before we can … Continue reading →
  • A Puzzling Puzzle
    My husband and I go through jigsaw puzzle kicks. Sometimes we will be in the mood to work on them. But other times we will go months or years without even looking at one. Right now we are on a … Continue reading →
