Today’s topic, Christian Time Travel Series! I love books about time travel, especially when they have Christian values and messages woven throughout the story. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to find yourself in another time entirely? This has always fascinated me. (And NOT just because Captain Kirk and Spock made a habit of it… or because I watched “Seven Days” a bit too often) Would you be able to maintain your faith? Would you be able to embrace the challenge of living in another time, and share Jesus Christ with those around you? Or maybe even … Read More
In this post: 8 Biblical Fiction Authors, and Why I Read Them! Some Friends and I were out for a Girls I mean Mom’s afternoon recently when the topic of Biblical Fiction came up. Now if you know me at all, you know I read a lot. My favorite categories are historical and Biblical fiction. I was surprised by how many of my friends were afraid, or at least nervous, about reading Biblical Fiction. I certainly understood their reasons. Primarily it was not wanting to get the Truth and a fictional account confused and mixed up in their minds. Combine … Read More

It’s a privilege for us to Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High. As Beth Moore is so fond of saving, there ain’t no ‘high’ like the Most High! He is the Maker, Creator, Master and Friend. Almighty Father Protector and Guide. For us to be allowed shelter with Him, well, wow! I’ve spent a good bit of time on Psalm 90-91 lately (a prayer of Moses), with this post in mind. Psalm 90 talks about the Most High God, and His power and eternal nature. A plea to see God’s work, be seen, and granted favor. Psalm 91 … Read More

Hello, and welcome to my library! I love books, and Books about Libraries make me feel right at home! As an avid reader, my personal library is more than 2,000-3,000 strong, and I’m always adding to it. Growing up, I called the Dial-A-Story program at my local library at least two or three times a week, even though they only changed the story once a week. And YES, I Missed Bedtime, because I was camped out in a good book (Still Do!) So, while I’m not exactly a Librarian, I probably qualify as a Libraryan What better place to start … Read More
