Jesus Christ – His Life and Mine – Book Review

Jesus Christ: His Life and Mine

The tagline of this debut book by author R. Christian Bohlen is "The Story of Jesus and How It Applies to Us in the Twitter Era". Unusual concept. What does Jesus and Twitter have in common? Bohlen is a ministry leader as well as a program manager to Fortune 500 companies. His objective with this…

God is Good – A Personal Reflection

I don't often blog about myself. I'd much prefer to interview others and help share their stories with my readers. But so much has been happening lately, that I can't not share. So here goes. First, in case you've not heard, I'm working on a book, actually a series of books. They're geared specifically for…

Invisible: The Story and Hope of Mexico’s Street Kids – With Filmmaker Stephen Spivey

Invisible Street Kids

I try to pay attention to the Christian film festival circuit, noting which films are included and especially which films are winning. Invisible: The Story and Hope of Mexico's Street Kids made the rounds, winning at both Great Lakes Christian Film Festival and International Christian Film Festival. It's a powerful documentary made even more so…

Bookbrush – Review

I'm always looking for help creating media for blog posts and social media, so I was excited to have the opportunity to try out Book Brush, a new creator tool. Book Brush is an image and video creator geared specifically for bloggers and authors. It's very limited in what it does, but what it does…

Lee Ann Mancini – Children’s Book Author

I recently joined AWSA (Advanced Writers and Speakers Association) and was immediately welcomed by a number of sweet women including Lee Ann Mancini, an award winning children's book author whose books have just been released as an animated series. I'm excited to share about her journey as an author. What inspired you to write children’s…

The Heart of a King – Book Review

The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith

Biblical fiction is a fairly new genre for me. For years, I avoided it because it just seemed weird to fictionalize the people from the Bible. Then I discovered Lois T. Henderson, and a whole new world opened up to me. I was still picky, though. I wanted to make sure that the author did…

Joyful Surrender – Book Review

Joyful Surrender

I'm familiar with Elisabeth Elliot, but I'm not sure that I've ever actually read one of her books before. I expected Joyful Surrender: 7 Disciplines for the Believer's Life to be old fashioned and spiritual. It was. In a good way. I'm afraid that I started reading this book somewhat halfheartedly. I was skimming through…

Chonda Pierce – Unashamed – Movie Review and Giveaway

Chonda Pierce Unashamed

I'm not a fan of stand up comedy. I'm not sure why, but whenever anyone tries to make me laugh, I rarely do. If Chonda Pierce - Unashamed was merely a stand up routine, I wouldn't care that much for it. However, this is more than a comedy routine. Intermixed with Chonda's stage show is…

Jean Selig Wenger – Talent Agent

I first met Jean Selig Wenger, Owner/Agent of Treasure Coast Talent when we were casting Summer of '67. I was surprised to find an agent who represented actors came from all over the country and worked to get them into faith-based films. She tirelessly works for her talent, and it's been so exciting to see…

Romancing the Bride – Book Review

Romancing the Bride book review

Saturday I decided I would take a day of relaxation and read a book. I started reading Romancing the Bride in the morning and spent most of the day curled up in my bed glued to the story. I couldn't stop reading until late at night when I finally finished it. This is so uncharacteristic…
