Guest Post with Debra Clopton

Meetin' time at Cowboy Church It's fun to learn about author's lives outside of writing.  Some them have careers and interests that are far different from the way we might picture them based on their books.  Today I'm happy to have novelist Debra Clopton here to share about a ministry that is dear to her heart. Debra is starting a new series with the just released Betting on Hope (BTW... it's now available at LifeWay!).  Take a look at the story before Debra comes to share with … [Read more...]

Then Sings My Soul by Amy Sorrells

Powerful new story from promising novelist I made a mistake last week.  Yes, yes, I know I made many but this one was a hum dinger. I read through Then Sings My Soul by Amy Sorrells way too fast and before I realized it, I had read the whole thing in just two days. The book I had been looking forward to for months, done within 48 hours. And now the agonizing wait for her next book begins. That's a serious problem us readers have.  We long for our favorite writers to release a new book … [Read more...]

Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant

A homecoming I came into the office today to learn about Kara Tippett's passing yesterday.  I knew this day was upon us soon but it still comes as a bit of a shock to the system.  Let me tell you about my author friend, Kara.  And I feel like I can call her friend because I know so much of her story, have seen her heart, and the fact that we tweeted back and forth a bit once means that she knew I existed.  Ha! Kara is one of the sweetest souls.  She is the mama to four "littles" and the … [Read more...]
