Since then I have completed five novels, had several pieces published in local periodicals, attended six writing conferences and managed to final in ACFW's Genesis contest in 2006, 2008, and 2009.

Recently I was reading through Exodus again, noting God’s specific instructions to Israel regarding the Tabernacle–the place where God would dwell with them. Throughout my readings of Exodus, I’ve gleaned many meaningful insights as to the specifics, but this time as I read, I saw three nuances of the big picture I hadn’t before noticed.

Building ourselves as God’s dwelling place requires of us... Read more of this blog post »

“I can't get those kids out of my head. I see their little faces, and I know I have to help them." I raised up and looked him straight in the eye. "I have to do this. It's more than just wanting to be part of God's work in this world. It's an aching hole in my heart. I don't know any other way to fill it.”
Anne Mateer, At Every Turn

“I dropped to my knees beside him. His eyes fluttered open, head looked to one side. “Go.”
At least that was what it looked like he’d said. I heard nothing but the whine of engines circling the track.
Then his eyes drifted shut.”

“I’ve often had to stand on the firm ground of my convictions when others thought I ought to be doing differently.”
Anne Mateer, Playing by Heart
