Reading Time: 6 minutes Serendipity is another word for God-wink. Sometimes I need to turn my thinker off. Reaching for a light bedtime read, I found Sue Bender’s 1991 book in my Kindle library. I don’t know when I got it, but I’m grateful. God is good – all the time. Reclining on plumped pillows, I began reading – […]
Books and Reviews
What I'm reading plus reviews of books you may want to read - or not!
Reading Time: 3 minutes Few books grab me as Ephemeral did. If I didn’t know the author I might not have read it. It’s (mostly) fiction, which isn’t my usual genre. I qualified that because it’s impossible to imagine the nuance of relationship between a woman and her forever horse without personal experience. This is the best horse novel I’ve […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes La Follett engagingly shares Brother Lawrence’s timeless truths with (sometimes) raw transparency – encouraging and loving all who serve on the front lines of motherhood. If you believe in eating dessert first, begin with Megan’s Letter #5. A few months ago I was one of six authors participating in an international video conference. In this […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes 1900,1950, today. The battle for the soul of the USA continues. Family matters. Nothing of great value is ever acquired easily.

Chambers informs. Shocks. Connects dots […]

In case you didn’t know, he’s also changed his job title from novelist to theologian. I’m sharing 7 “lies” Young insists come from the Bible. Today Lies We Believe About God is the #2 […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes Philly Thompson lives alone in a one-bedroom Chicago apartment with his cat Irving. He worries about his weight, frets about his job, longs to get back with his ex-girlfriend, and wishes his ma would stop nagging him. To you and me, a pretty average guy. To Jesus, the raw material for a miracle . . . or two.
Reading Time: 2 minutes The Screwtape Letters is unique in the universe of Christian literature. It is fictitious fantasy based upon eternal fact. It is satirical, entertaining, deep, and distinctly Christian. Think of it as a series of lessons framed as correspondence between an Archangel of God and a subordinate angel who just happens to be his nephew. The […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes In the simplest terms, Christmas is a spirit of generosity inspired by love. Can you think of a better way to bring joy to a beloved grandchild than giving her a visit to a barn at Christmas? How about a marvelous Christmas book for the tween in your life? Some of us in the horse […]
