More Ways Than One to Be a Mom

Posted on May 5, 2021

By Maggie Wallem Rowe

Have you noticed that news outlets reporting stories of those tragically killed or missing almost always include parental status, if the victim had minor children? It’s not that being a mother or father automatically confers greater worth in our culture. But the impact on society is significant when children lose a parent or guardian. Those in authority need to make immediate decisions concerning the physical and emotional well-being of minors.

Scripture tells us our spiritual health is equally important. Those who are more mature in the faith are explicitly instructed to guide younger believers. For women, a spiritual mother can be anyone who is part of the labor process when new life in Christ begins or anyone who acts as a model or mentor for someone younger in the Lord.…

5 Books That Changed My Life: Author Beth K. Vogt

Posted on April 21, 2021

Choosing five books that changed my life ranks up there with the challenge of choosing one book as my all-time favorite. I love books, so much so I don’t believe in getting rid of books—ever. I tried once. And then I cried over the small stack of books my husband, Rob, pried from my hands. I have To Be Read piles. Plural. Rob cheered when I purchased an e-reader, envisioning all my books disappearing into virtual oblivion. Didn’t happen. I just added an invisible TBR pile to the ones beside the couch and our bed and my desk and favorite chair.

But for the sake of this blog post, can I choose five books that changed my life? Yes.…

Author Spotlight: Why I Write Christian Fiction

Posted on April 7, 2021

by Pam Hillman, author of the Natchez Trace novels

Years ago, when I first answered the call to write fiction, I faced a watershed moment. I can still see the scene clearly in my head as if it were yesterday.

I’ve wanted to be a writer from the time I learned to read and figured out that somebody, somewhere, had written the stories that transported me to far-flung places with make-believe friends. Even as young as seven or eight years old, I knew penning stories was what I wanted to do.…

5 Indoor Activities for Families This Winter

Posted on January 27, 2021

The popular internet meme of a frowning, introspective doodle-kid resonates with me deeply between the months of December and March. This is why I’m posting this list of indoor activity ideas. Because let’s face it (pun intended): some of us may really strive to be outdoorsy. You know, dress for the worst, and just get out there and have fun--make the most it! But then, windchill happens (for those who don’t live in fly-over states, you may need to look that word up).

Now, yes, of course you will NEED to go outside for things. One of the ideas I mention will require it, so that your joy may be complete. But then, go back inside.…
