Greetings from Colorado, where the sky is bright blue and the temperature low and frosty. Davalynn Spencer here, pleased to introduce you to author Sarah Hamaker and her book, Illusion of Love.
Sarah, what’s your tagline for this intriguing title?
A suspicious online romance reconnects an agoraphobe and an old friend.
Wow – there’s a lot of information and curiosity tied up in that word, agoraphobe. What inspired you to write this book?
Believe it or not, Illusion of Love is loosely based on something that happened to a friend of mine. I can’t give any specific details without giving away one of the plot twists, but sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. Read More →
Happy New Year from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing award-winning author and speaker Dena Dyer. She sings! She acts! She writes! And today she’s chatting about how God works through her writing.
Welcome, Dena! Please tell us about your book, Wounded Women of the Bible.
My co-author and I studied 20+ wounded women in Scripture, told portions of our testimonies, and collected stories from contemporary women. During the process of writing the book, God once again showed us how practical and real the Bible is and gave us comfort in our own areas of woundedness.
What a great concept! What led you to write this book?

(And He did!) Read More →

Merry Christmas from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the joy of interviewing author, Bible teacher, and biblical counselor Debbie W. Wilson! The message in her new book, Little Faith, Big God, sounds perfect for Christmas—especially in 2020!
Welcome, Debbie! Please tell us about your book Little Faith, Big God.
Little Faith, Big God digs into the lives of those in Hebrews 11. God commended these people for their faith, not their striving. They grew like us. Those who tend to be hard on themselves will especially appreciate seeing God’s grace at work in the lives of these biblical characters. Read More →
