It’s a privilege for us to dwell in the shelter of the Most High. A gift, he has given us. As Beth Moore is so fond of saying, 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 take refuge 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, … Read More

(Matthew 10:26-33 NASB) 26 “Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed … Read More

(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
Biblical fiction authors can teach us so much, even through fiction, that will grow our faith, and our understanding of the culture and relationships that we can so easily miss.

Some friends and I were out for a 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 … Read More
Happy Summer!! Of the many things I am thankful for, one is the opportunity to read amazing books, and Andrew Huff’s books, A Cross to Kill, and now Cross Shadow, do NOT disappoint.

It takes a really good author to manage all that and leave you counting down the days until the sequel comes out. Andrew Huff managed this very well! And now the second book is here. … Read More
