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)

Maybe not exactly love at first sight, at least not on Marisa's part. But Nate… Yeah, he was smitten the first time he met Marisa. Unfortunately, her fiancé had just been murdered, so it wasn't exactly the ideal time to ask her out. And then, she disappeared. Fast-forward eight years, and Marisa needs his help. […]

What a beautiful story. I love the writing, I love the hope. The author doesn’t acknowledge God, not really, but He seems present throughout. Not the illness—that’s not from Him. But the healing, the hope, the little miracles all the way th

David Platt
“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

David Platt
“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.”
