Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! What a joy to interview Darlene Franklin, who has written over fifty books despite life circumstances that would lead most writers to give up. But not Darlene! Her story, her faith, and her cheerful attitude will inspire and challenge you.
Darlene, please tell us about your book All Roads Lead Home.
All Roads Lead Home is an historical romance novella set in 1928 Waynoka, OK. The heroine is waitress for the local Harvey House and catches for a ladies’ softball team. The hero is an engineer for the railroad.

A chat with author Dr. Ted Baehr
C. Kevin Thompson
Kevin Thompson here. We sit on the Florida front porch, rocking away “in all kinds of weather,” as the song We are the Boys of Old Florida states. And it’s true. We are the “pollen state” right now. Mow your yard, and you look like a bad impression of Pig Pen from Peanuts. Everything is yellow, and we haven’t had any significant rain in over a month. Without further delay, I want to introduce a gentleman who has been working to transform the minds and hearts of moviegoers with the message of God’s truth for years now. His work has opened doors for screenwriters and many others in the movie industry.
Dr. Ted Baehr
Welcome, Dr. Ted Baehr, to the Florida front porch! Dr. Baehr, grab a chair, a glass of tea (do they drink sweet tea in California?), and tell us about your book like we’re a reader in a bookstore who has just picked it up, and we know nothing about it.
Ted Baehr’s Reel to Real provides 45 inspirational devotions that exemplify principles from God’s Word, using powerful moments from over 150 great movies. Each devotion is insightful and uplifting, illustrating a meaningful theme. Read More →
Hello from Davalynn Spencer who’s hanging on tight. The winds off the Rocky Mountains can blow every cloud from the sky and everything from the yard that’s not tied down—a perfect reason to read what today’s featured author Twila Belk has to say in her new book.
Welcome, Twila. Please give us a nutshell overview of The Power to Be: Be Still, Be Grateful, Be Strong, Be Courageous.
Relatable, honest, and with splashes of humor, this 40-day devotional reveals that we have the power to be still, grateful, strong, and courageous—even when undergoing trials, facing unknowns, battling fears, or struggling with feelings of inadequacy or insecurity. It all has to do with where our focus is.
I suspect you had some personal experience to pour into this devotional. Can you tell us why, exactly, you wrote this book? Read More →

Greetings from C. Kevin Thompson. Well, winter is officially over, I guess. I know. I know. Those of you in Minnesota and Montana might argue the point. It’s all about three words: location, location, location. We almost broke a record the other day of 87 degrees here in central Florida. So much for spring…
So, we sit here on the front porch…ceiling fans on high…ice-cold glasses of lemonade sweating on thirsty stones…welcoming Georgia Shaffer to the Guest’s Adirondack Chair.
Welcome, Georgia! Before we get going on the other questions, first tell us about your latest book, A Gift of Mourning Glories!
The reasons we face loss are many. The results, however, are the same. Our hearts ache. Life as we knew it is gone. We can avoid the most common mistakes of starting over with this book’s practical five-step approach, enabling us to move from feelings of hopelessness and despair to those of hope and joy.
