A Place to Breathe | Guest Post by Kayleigh

Today’s guest blogger is a special young woman in my life. I’d giver her more of an introduction, but you’ll see why she’s so special to me from her own words. I will say that if God has put a young person on your heart step out of your comfort zone and become a mention. You’ll never know the full impact until eternity. As I sit here in my room and think back it’s overwhelming for me to see how {Read More}

Lifeboats | Guest Post by Halee Matthews

{source} It’s been a part of my life since I first picked up my easy-reading book. I poured through the pages in fascination. I couldn’t get enough of it. What a thing it was, the R.M.S. Titanic. Like a palace on the water, it elegantly awaited its first of many unsinkable voyages. The engineers proudly boasted of their design. The people flooded onto the ship, reveling in the decadence and the glamor. But we all know how that maiden voyage {Read More}

On April 7, 2009, John and I celebrated our 19th anniversary with a cruise to the Bahamas. We’d wanted to go to Nassau on our honeymoon, but back then, we were just kids.

From year 1–18, we would go out to dinner on our anniversary, and usually Nassau came up somewhere in {Read More}

The Last Installment of Marianna’s Story

Beyond Hope’s Valley takes off where Along Wooded Path ends. Marianna is headed back to Indiana, leaving her family in Montana. Yet “returning home” is different than she thought. Have the people changed, or has she? I loved completing Marianna’s love story. I also love that this novel is not available as an e-book on Kindle and Nook. (The paperback book releases April 1!) I’ve gotten many, many emails from readers eager to see who Marianna will choose–Aaron or Ben. {Read More}

The treasure that pops out of the egg is a children’s illustration that gives a visual theme for the devotional for that day. {Read More}

As the Titanic slipped beneath the waves that tragic night 100 years ago, on a continent far away, in a small town  in Vermont, my great-grandmother was laboring to bring her baby girl into the world. Marion Wakfield and Mother Understandably, the calamitous reports of the tremendous loss of life completely overshadowed the news of Marion Wakefield’s birth. However, that in no way diminished my grandmother’s life or her influence over the next two generations. This April 16, 2012, she {Read More}
