Bad, Bad Love Has a Sister

You know that sister, the one you’re always having to bail out, buck up, pull along. And maybe she’s not the most brilliant person on the planet, maybe she was born pretty and has been able to coast along, pretty well, on what God and her momma gave her. She’s no feminist, she has no career. She...

Reaching for the Touch of God

Picture      I was so overwhelmed when I saw this painting that I wanted to reach toward the touch of God as He reaches out to infuse life into Adam. At this traveling exhibit of works by Michelangelo, I learned a strange twist about this artist who is considered the greatest painter/sculptor of all tim... Read more of this blog post »

The Church Planting Journey


Around 1995, a few pastors, and leaders (including myself) in my city began to meet to discuss church planting. The discussion starter was the resource kit known as The Church Planters’ Toolkit (1991) written by Robert E. Logan. We would read (and at least on one occasion watch a video) and disc...

Making Fiction Out of Fact (3)

Once I have a draft, the hard part starts. That’s revision. I spend something like 10 percent of my writing time drafting original text and 90 percent revising. That means being sure that I vary my sentence types and lengths. I study each paragraph and look for ways to cut and trim. And so on. Th...

New! Printable Coloring Pages

I love to color!  When 'Adult Coloring' became a socially acceptable, it made me feel so happy.  Not only do other adults enjoy using crayons, colored pencils, and markers (yay, not alone!) but the de-stressing and creative benefits of coloring are embraced by folks from all walks of life which i...

Learn History Through Fiction: Speaking of Bespoke

Debates about clothes cheaply made overseas have been in the news lately. Consider the other end of the apparel spectrum. Savile Row is a shopping street in central London famous for men’s bespoke tailoring. The term “bespoke” is believed to have originated there when cloth for a suit was said to...

الإنسان الليليّ هو الأقرب للصدق واللاوعي الأكثر تمثيلاً للأنا من مظهريّات النّهار. الجنس البشري ليس مؤهّلاً بعد لسيادة النجم الشمسيّ على الكوكب لمدّة طويلة، ولهذا ينزلق في مستنقع النشاط الكاذب والغضبيّ. الشمس لا تعني النور لجنس غير متصالحٍ مع لا وعيه، بل تعني الحرب و...

Technology is now an integral part of our lives and relationships. And while many parents rightly worry about the negative effects of technology in our kids’ lives and our society as a whole, I think it’s also important to acknowledge how it can be a force for good.

The worst timing for a gut punch

In every book I’ve written, there’s generally a scene that gets to me, hard. Usually the waterworks don’t turn on, but every now and then I might be cutting a few onions in this house when I write certain scenes. When I was writing Journey of the Caged, there were two such moments, and I think it...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
