Understanding the times: Don’t miss the season!

Don't be ignorant of the times, understand how to wait actively for God!

Our Publishing Dreams

Proverbs 13:12

We've all had longings or yearnings during our lives, especially when we were young. Having the whole world before us, we could dream about what our lives would look like as writers/authors. "If only I could publish a book" "I wish I could find the perfect literary agent" "If I could only have more sales"…

Finding Comfort in our Crisis with Les Misérables by Jarm Del Boccio

Do you hear the people sing? scene from Les Misérable

Do you hear the people sing? Well, no. But I do hear fears expressed and complaints a-plenty! There was trouble during the French Revolution, and there is trouble today in the form of a virus -- the coronavirus. Although many are in dread of the contagious enemy, we as Christians know we have nothing to…

Have You Ever Doubted that God is Good All the Time? by Ava Pennington

God is good

  When a friend had successful cancer surgery, she joyfully announced the results, along with her conclusion that God is good.

Everyone rejoiced in her prognosis because we understood…

CONTENTMENT: MY Writerly Word for 2020

  This past year was a difficult one for me. Due to our financial situation, we have not been able to travel, which has always been my go-to for inspiration. A new destination has the ability to shake up my brain cells and send them in a new direction, but this year, they stopped. Cold.…

Are You Thankful for Troubles? Building Character Through Trials by Jarm Del Boccio

Although my husband and I live in an almost-empty-nest, sometimes I catch myself reminiscing. Our homeschool history course many years ago includes a mini-unit on Shakespeare and his works.  We'd listened to an excellent 3 part DVD series by Schlessinger Media called, "Shakespeare for Students."  The concepts are simply explained, but meaty. In The Characters…

“J” is for Journey

Diane has always had a desire and a knack for impacting the lives of young children in the hopes of leading them to faith that embraces God and His son, Jesus. Whether that "calling" in life took the form of teaching preschoolers, being a church staff minister for children, or currently being a "lunch lady"…

Follow the Signs

Ahhh, summertime. There’s something about taking a road trip in the summer, convertible top down, wind in our hair. It brings out the teenager in all of us. Of course, I don’t have a convertible, but I can dream, can’t I? The drives in my dreams almost always include an open road, maybe a long,…

Teaser Post: Trust and Obey

"Am I rich?" "Am I famous?" "Am I on a bestseller list?" Often, we writers ask questions like these as we try to measure our success. The problem? Most of you, like me, have to say no to these questions. Unless we’ve been fortunate enough to author beloved children’s books or a series of YA…

Give Your Best, Trusting God With the Rest

by Sally Matheny “What are you working on?” is a common question at writing conferences. Are you anxious about your current project? Are you second-guessing if you’ve got what it takes to complete the task? Several years ago, I traveled with a mission team to a rural area of Vermont. After conducting the first night…
