Aside from her family and her Savior, Robin Patchen has two loves—writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she’d spend a lot of time sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger joints. She’d visit every place in the entire world—twice, if possible—and craft stories and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for Patchen to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her. So she stays in Oklahoma, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.

My eldest son is a recovery addict (thank God for the "recovering" part of that!) This story is about a man whose son is dealing with addiction. I tend to work through my emotions in story, so that's what this is. Of course, I've added a fun suspense plot to make it more interesting. I hope readers like it! (less)

Mountains are so pretty from a distance. When they're in front of you, they beckon you with their beauty. But get in the midst of them, and you see them for what they are—rocky ground and steep angles and bitter winds. Terror on every side. Trials seem the same way to me. We see the […]

Normandie Fischer is one of my favorite authors, and this may be her best book yet. I loved Agnes and Henry. Both flawed but sympathetic people. And the daughter was realistic and well-crafted. I highly recommend this story

“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall.”
Roald Dahl

“Learn the rules, break the rules, make up new rules, break the new rules.”
Marvin Bell

“Radical obedience to Christ is not easy... It's not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.”
David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

“God beckons storm clouds and they come. He tells the wind to blow and the rain to fall, and they obey immediately. He speaks to the mountains, 'You go there,' and He says to the seas, 'You stop here, and they do it. Everything in all creation responds in obedience to the Creator...until we get to you and me. We have the audacity to look God in the face and say, 'No.”
David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream
