Making Time

Making time. Wouldn’t it be great if we could actually make time? A lot of writers struggle to make time to write. At the very least, we struggle to make the time to write consistently. My biggest writing obstacle is that I have a full time job that requires a lot of critical thinking and […]

My Words Matter

I’m a hope*writer. My words matter. It’s a great reminder, because sometimes even the best of us can feel like frauds. Imposter syndrome is real. This reminder, for me, is two-fold, because my goal is to publish Christian fiction. My words matter. But also… My words matter. The message I convey has to honor God […]

The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden

The cover alone on this one intrigued me. When I saw that it was a series, I knew I had to give it a shot. I was not disappointed. The male lead, Gray, is one of those characters that I just fall for. He’s serious, he’s reserved, but there’s something underneath that can be drawn […]

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Fantasy novels are one of my top three favorite genres. I love getting lost in a completely different world. Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris is one of the best I’ve ever read.

I struggle with staying organized and staying focused. It’s a product of having too much to do and feeling like there isn’t enough time in the day. Helene Segura was a speaker at a business conference I attended several years ago. She walked through the basics of her strategies with handouts, and talked about just […]

Supporting Christian Fiction Writers

If you’ve been following me long enough, you know I’ve been on a writing adventure, working on my very first novel. I’ve always respected writers and published authors, but (like most things) you never gain full respect for something until you know just how hard it is. And writing a novel is hard. As a […]

Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson

It’s been quite a while since I’ve read through a novel in just a few days, but Edenbrooke was one I couldn’t put down. Donaldson’s writing captured me from page one, and just got better and better. As a Christian who loves a good love story, romance novels can be a tightrope walk. Some content […]

Slavery Still Exists. Let’s End It.

Slavery still exists. It may not look like the slavery we read about in our textbooks. It’s not legal. But it still exists today as human trafficking. What is human trafficking? It is the illegal trade of human beings. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor through […]
