Strength of 1

Step-moms are supposed to be wicked, but Carol wasn’t. I can’t remember her without a smile or without a kind word. When she and my dad, Ron, got married, I was already grown and out of the house, but Carol would call and invite me to visit. She let me know how my father was doing. She helped me understand him in ways I never had. She took the time to learn about him, his family, and his time serving in {Read More}

My Writing Desk | Beth Vogt

I wrote my first book in a booth at the local Panera Bread. It was nice to know that if the phone rang, I didn’t have to answer it. And the dirty dishes? Not my responsibility. Now my writing happens at a desk, in an office that’s mostly mine. One corner of the room contains a desk for the computer used by my husband and eleven-year-old daughter. My desk faces a window so I can see the wildlife frequenting the {Read More}

The Story behind the Story | Guest Post by Colleen Oakes

After I got married in 2003, my wonderful husband, Ryan, and I moved to St. Louis, where he was attended Concordia Seminary for the next four years. I had gone from living in Colorado, surrounded by family and friends, to living in a very bad neighborhood in St. Louis where I knew nobody aside from my husband. Ryan had to jump right into rigorous schooling, and I was often left alone, afraid to go outside and stuck inside, trying to {Read More}

Get to Know Tricia | My Writing

What has been challenging your writing career? What I find most challenging balancing kids and writing. I’ve been a homeschooling mom since 1995 when I first started getting published. Two years ago we adopted a baby, who is now a very active toddler (and if you don’t believe me, just check out my Facebook page for constant updates about her). It’s challenging getting quiet time to write, but it’s a blessing, too. I have a lot of life experience to {Read More}
