Abigail Mitchell | 177 comments Hey everyone. My name is Abigail I hope you enjoy the group. If anyone has suggestions feel free to share.
I am 17, I asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me when I was 11, on August 6th 2006.


message 2: by Carissa (new)

Carissa My name is Carissa I love to read mostly Christian fiction, mysteries, Non fiction and some teen. I am a non traditional college, because instead of listening to what God had planned and wanted me to go i listen to others. Jesus saved me at 14 in 2002 when I yielded to call of the Holy Spirit.

message 11: by Beth (new)

Beth Vogt (goodreadscombethkvogt) | 6 comments Hi, all! I'm Beth and after saying I'd never write fiction, I am now the author of a debut novel (Wish You Were Here) with a second novel releasing in 2013 (Catch a Falling Star.) I also love to read Christian fiction & have a towering To Be Read Pile. Thanks for the invitation to join this group.


message 12: by Anne (new)

Anne Mateer (annemateer) | 8 comments Hey y'all! Glad to be here! I love reading maybe even more than I love writing. :) My debut novel released last fall (Wings of a Dream) and my second comes out in September (At Every Turn). I write historical Christian fiction set in the years just prior to and including World War I. Looking forward to connecting with other readers!


message 13: by Ruth (new)

Ruth (ruthaxtell) | 19 comments Hi Everyone, I recognize a lot of you. I love reading historical fiction, especially romance. I write historical romance. I just got a big box of books from CBD.com and can't wait to dive in!


message 14: by Janice (new)

Janice Palko (janicelanepalko) | 13 comments Hi Everybody:

I read across the board--nonfiction, fiction, the cereal box when I'm eating breakfast! My favorite Christian author is Francine Rivers. It's not good to be envious, but she's one writer whose talent I wish I had. I also write and my first novel, an inspirational romantic comedy called St. Anne's Day, will be released later this summer. At present, I'm reading a novel, which is not Christian fiction, entitled After the Fog. It is set in the city where I live and it was written by a friend.

Nice to meet you all.

Erica Vetsch (ericavetsch) | 1 comments Hi everyone! Thank you so much for the invite to join the group. I love reading and writing Christian historical romance.


message 16: by Abbi (new)

Abbi Hey!
I am a 18 year-old Christian (since I was 4 or 5) homeschool grad who LOVES reading! I also recently started reviewing books and write a blog with my sister-Christian Novels. I mostly read just Christian books (both fiction and non-fiction) but I have been known to occasionally read a book by a secular author. Though I do a lot of research first to make sure it is clean! I also absolutely love to babysit and jump at the chance to watch someone's kids. So that's me in a nutshell!

Margaret, what is your novel about?


message 25: by Sharon (new)

Sharon (SharonTroyCentanne) | 17 comments Hello All! I am a church librarian at Grace Lutheran Church in Florida. I use Goodreads as an online record of the books in my church library. I love Christian fiction because the characters are good role models. They learn from life's experiences that only Christ can really solve their problems. They pray, encourage each other, attend worship and other church activities, and lead good clean lives. Christian fiction is usually based on a Bible verse theme and/or has Bible verses scattered throughout the story. Christian authors, thank you for the opportunity to share Jesus with my congregation by way of your wonderful stories!

Valerie Hansen (goodreadscomvalerie_hansen) | 18 comments Hi all! I've been writing Christian fiction for Love Inspired since 1999. I have books in all 3 of their lines, although lately I've been concentrating mostly on suspense. Right now I have THREAT OF DARKNESS in stores and STANDING GUARD is coming in Sept. Thankfully, many of my earlier titles are also ebooks.
Blessings,
Val

message 33: by Diane U (last edited Jun 07, 2012 11:27AM) (new)

Diane U (djuseless) I forgot to introduce myself when I joined earlier this week. My name is Diane and I read mostly Christian fiction. I love Amish and contemporary Christian fiction (especially Karen Kingsbury and Collen Coble) and I just started reading historical and I am enjoying that also. If my name is familiar it is because I am one of the moderators for Fans of Amish Fiction and Fans of Christian Romance. Let's have fun in this new group! Thank you Abigial for inviting me!


message 34: by Rebekah (new)

Rebekah Hart | 2 comments Hi, my name is Becky and I 'm a 20 year old homeschool graduate. I 've been a book fanatic for as long as I can remember. I am a Christian and love anything to do with music (except rap, but hey, that doesn't really count) If anyone mentions dark chocolate, tea, the beach, weddings, or hot days, I 'm in :)


message 35: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 1 comments Thanks so much for inviting me! I'm Amanda Cabot, an author of Christian fiction -- historical romance, to be specific -- and I'm also an avid reader. I'm one of those people who agrees with Thomas Jefferson's saying, "I cannot live without books." In fact, I like that quotation so much that I needlepointed a doorstop with it on it. My reading tastes are eclectic and include mysteries, suspense, women's fiction, a few thrillers, a little bit of science fiction. I'm delighted to be part of this group.

I am with you on Rap not being music, after all shouldn't music be relaxing? well I guess not all music is relaxing but at least other music sounds like music.

Sorry I took so long. My son and his wife are visiting and I also am kind of . . . trying to spring clean in case we really do need to sell our house.

The book is a romantic suspense. Thanks for asking.

I also am really excited to see a lot of the authors I read and know from other places. {waves}

Lots of great intros I can relate to. I'm looking forward to getting to know other readers who love Christian fiction just as much as I do. :o)

I also write romantic suspense. My debut novel, WHEN RAIN FALLS, was released earlier this year in March. You can download free chapters at http://www.tyoramoody.com

I need to move ILLUSION by Frank Peretti to the top of my reading list. It's been awhile since I've read anything new from him.
