I sit in church on Sunday and listen to amazing sermons and feel at peace. Church inspires me to write, to be a better person, to live for Christ. Church is my home base in many ways. I love the worship music, but mostly I love the way God speaks to my spirit during church. … Continue reading

Life Lessons with Jen

Home Sweet Home

I had a wonderful time at the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) Conference. It was both an incredible and very humbling experience to feel God’s presence at each session and during each conversation.
