ArynChristian Fiction10 Comments

A trip to The Painted Castle should do us all some good! Kristy Cambron does an excellent job with the travel arrangements! I mean, traveling about the world, and back and forth through time should be exhausting. But Kristy takes us on the adventure with a smile and a wink, and the only jetlag involved is that which comes from staying up too late reading (again)!!! (Who, me? Would I do such a thing?? Yes. Absolutely! 100%) This book is on tour with Celebrate Lit, and we are privileged to share a spotlight from them. I also received a copy … Read More

Author Steven James Books Are Great Christian Suspense Novels

ArynChristian Fiction3 Comments

I thoroughly enjoy Sci-Fi. You can call me a Trekkie and I wouldn’t mind. Shows like Sliders and Eureka are fun! But they all lack that thread of faith, of being able to trace the fingerprints of God. I also enjoy Crime shows like JAG and NCIS. They cover some awful stuff, but Justice wins. A little graphic sometimes, but satisfying to see the good guys solve the case. Steven James new book, Synapse, has the best of both of those, without any bad language or graphic displays that you have to cover your eyes for. While this is a … Read More

Hashtag Rogue cover

Come and experience a lesson in how to stand by your convictions in the latest book from Chautona Havig: Hashtag Rogue. To have the courage of your convictions is not easy, but well worth doing! I’m a long-time fan of Chautona’s work, for several reasons. First, because everything I’ve read of hers (yes, even her one kids Christmas story that’s Santa-based) makes me think and grow as a Christian. Second, she writes well, and she writes a lot!! I think she publishes between 4-6 books a year. And she’s generous. Most Fridays she offers one of her books for free!! … Read More

Hagar Bible Study cover

Welcome to today’s Book Review: The new Hagar Bible study by Shadia Hrichi. If you like going “Behind the SEEN” you’ll love this study. Spend some time with Hagar and those around her. Together with many of those whose lives tell of a relationship with The God who Sees; It’s awesome! Walking through the pages of scripture in this Bible study put me in a happy place. The spiritual discipline of daily time in the Bible is one I love, but sometimes it gets pushed aside in favor of doing life. I’m always grateful for the opportunity to be accountable … Read More
