CPE 2019 – Elaine Helms

Elaine Helms and Sharon Wilharm at CPE 2019

I love all the connections that come from Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA). Elaine Helms is another fellow AWSA member, and we met when I posted in the group about finding a prayer book. She writes prayer books, so we corresponded a bit, then I went and bought her book Prayer 101. It's a…

CPE 2019 – Pamela Christian

Don't you love when God leads you on a path, and you think you're heading for one destination, only you end up somewhere completely different, but oh, so much better? That's what happened when I lined up Pamela Christian to interview at Christian Product Expo.  I first picked Pamela to interview because I saw she…

CPE 2019 – Michelle Medlock Adams and Bethany Jett

We've been to many industry events, but never one where the energy level matched what we encountered at this year's Christian Product Expo.

Christian Product Expo 2019

For years I've heard about the amazing Christian Product Expo in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, only it wasn't open to media, so we couldn't attend. Then, this year I got an email from Lori Heiselman, founder of Biscuit Media Group, inviting us to be part of the media coverage of this year's CPE. I'm so glad she…

Finding Lady Enderly – Book Review

Finding Lady Enderly is unlike any other book I've read. It feels like classic literature, like you're discovering a treasure that's been tucked away for all these years and just now discovered and released.

Catching Faith 2: Movie Review

I can't remember the last movie I watched. I've been too busy with ministry, speaking, and books. But when Alexandra Boylan invited me to take a sneak peek at Catching Faith 2, I couldn't resist since it's a movie about women struggling with life's challenges, was filmed in Kentucky, and included several of our actors…

Book Review: When You Need to Move a Mountain

When You Need to Move a Mountain book review

As I prepared to lead our women's prayer retreat, I read dozens of prayer books including When You Don't Know What to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd, so I was excited when I got the invitation to review her newest book. I like both books, but this one really resonates with me. When You Need…
