Life-Transforming Fiction

A Life-Giving Fiction

Last year, my son, David Jr. left for his fourth tour of Iraq (Army). On his previous deployments, he had more than a few close calls and lost some very special friends who were not so fortunate. We knew very well that even though we prayed hard and often for his safety, God might call him home on those desert sands so far away.

Before he left, we set a time to discuss the important details that needed attending to: financial issues, powers of attorney, and, yes, even the provisions of his will. ...

Interview of Donita K. Paul

Josiah Hutchinson

Teens love fantasy. They want to escape into fantastic worlds and let their imaginations run wild.

Globetrotting For Writers

Grace Bridges

New Zealanders are pre-programmed to travel. Most of us are descended from immigrants only one or two generations back. And being down there in isolation at the end of the world, we like to do overseas experience, "the big O.E." as a part of our career and education. My story isn't quite typical, because most people go home after a year or two. Me, I'm an incurable globetrotter in my eighth year abroad.
