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…

Heart Wisdom – Book Review

In March I joined Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA). I wasn't initially sure how much I would get out of the group but have been so pleasantly surprised by all the connections I've made already. I'm loving learning about the other members' books and projects. One of those is Heart Wisdom, the latest in…

For Everything There is a Season

In 2012 Fred bought the domain FaithFlix.com. At the time we didn't have a use for it, but he bought it with the expectation that at some point we would need it. And we did. After attending NRB Convention in 2013, I felt inspired to start blogging about the faith-film industry. Faith Flix was conceived…

The Women Who Met Jesus – Book Review

The Women Who Met Jesus book review

As you  may have noticed, I have a slight obsession with women in the Bible. I love to not only read their original stories in the Bible, but also to read Bible studies and other books that feature different biblical women.

Ever Faithful – Book Review

I love historical fiction that takes place in real locations, especially if I've been to that location. While I've never been to Yellowstone National Park where Ever Faithful takes place, author Karen Barnett brought it to life in such a way that it definitely made me want to visit. Ever Faithful is # 3 in…

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…

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…
