Marian's passion for story in all its forms leaves her fingers itching to find words to type, a camera button to press, and a part to play. Raised as a die hard sci fi and fantasy nerd, Marian remembers drawing the Starship Enterprise when asked to color a picture of her favorite television show in Kindergarten. She now strives to tell fantastical stories that create more virtuous hearts in her readers.

Women and God by Kathleen Nielson

This book was wonderful and timely. I have perused other books on women lately only to be disappointed in their treatment of scripture. Nielson's theology, application, and understand of women's inner workings was on point. She was fair, but critical ...more

This might be my favorite installment in this series so far. I was a little disappointed by Santiago’s character, but then again, if he had been perfect in every way, that wouldn’t have been at all realistic. Still enjoying the slow burn of the light ...more

This story was fun and had a fabulous ending. But sadly I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the previous three. I'm still really looking forward to number four!

One of my favorite aspects of this series is the long suffering feel. LOL! I mean that there are a lot of subplots Whitford nods to but doesn't satisfy. Yet. The most important part is the history and the adventure. The slow burn of the romance and t ...more

C.S. Lewis
“And that is enough to raise your thoughts to what may happen when the redeemed soul, beyond all hope and nearly beyond belief, learns at last that she has pleased Him whom she was created to please. There will be no room for vanity then. She will be free from the miserable illusion that it is her doing. With no taint of what we should now call self-approval she will most innocently rejoice in the thing that God has made her to be, and the moment which heals her old inferiority complex forever will also drown her pride… Perfect humility dispenses with modesty.”
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
