The Bronté action figures

This is too funny not to share.  Thanks to Karen Campbell at True Womanhood for this one: The Bronté sisters action figures. If only they were real!  But according to Phil Lord and Chris Miller on YouTube, “This was a fake commercial we made in 1998 for a series of educational shorts about action figures based on historical figures. Its…

Love of the very best kind

Eric Pazdziora’s post on Hillary McFarland’s blog has brought back a special memory for me.  It’s a little off-topic from Eric’s post, maybe, but not by much. A few years ago, I was at Pensacola with a handful of other authors for a writing retreat.  We had the run of a gorgeous beach house for the weekend, thanks to a…

Debut novel from Gina Holmes

Crossing Oceans is here! I’m looking forward to reading this one: Nothing deepens a stream like a good rain . . . or makes it harder to cross. Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again.  But life has a way of upending even the best-laid plans.  Now, years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter must return to…

Falling in love with Foxfire

The Foxfire books are anthologies of articles that were published in The Foxfire Magazine. They’re all about understanding and preserving the heritage of the settlers of the Southern Appalachians. I browsed through a few of the books years ago but just rediscovered them when I was doing research for one of my novels.  The sections on family and faith are…

Wade Burleson on Quiverfull

Wade Burleson has written an excellent post about Quiverfull theology at “Grace and Truth to You.”  He’s an evangelical Christian himself, and he approaches the movement respectfully but with a clear eye for aberrant teachings. If you’ve never heard of Quiverfull, it’s the belief that the size of one’s family, or “quiver,” should be determined by God, not by human…

Michael Spencer, the Internet Monk

The Internet Monk has gone home. Michael Spencer’s online writings have affected me deeply from the first day I discovered them.  They’ve always pointed me toward the gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope the fellows of the Boarshead Tavern will keep the place open and continue to honor the way Michael  loved and honored Jesus.  I’ll be praying that the…

Good Friday

Good Friday by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) Am I a stone, and not a sheep, That I can stand, O Christ, beneath Thy cross, To number drop by drop Thy Blood’s slow loss, And yet not weep? Not so those women loved Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee; Not so fallen Peter weeping bitterly; Not so the thief was moved; Not…

Real Christianity

I’ve been trying to post another installment of our tour through the links on my blogroll, but somehow the drafts keep vanishing into cyberspace. For today, I’ll just direct your attention to my friend Sherrie Lord, whose most recent post about real Christianity is  much better than anything I could have come up with. Follow her link to the Internet…

On a roller coaster with Jesus

What’s the world’s biggest, tallest, fastest, jerkiest roller coaster?  That’d be the one that’s been taking my emotions on a ride for the last week or so.  I hope I can make a semi-coherent post out of this. Last weekend, I drove to Nashville for a publishing workshop from The Master Seminars. What a privilege that was:  Brainstorming with my…
