About the Author

Loretta Eidson

Have you ever been to the theatre and sat on the edge of your seat as the intensity of suspense kept you biting your fingernails? How about Taken, Kidnapped, and A Quiet Place?

That’s what I hope you’ll experience in my novels: gripping stories, fast-paced, and full of twists, while my characters discover God’s unconditional love, the freedom of forgiveness, the value of trust, and the power of prayer.

God is Not Our Virtual Assistant by DiAnn Mills

Recently, I heard a speaker state God was a virtual assistant. The claim didn’t resonate with me. In fact, it irritated me, so I dug deeper for a definition and the qualifications for a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant is self-employed and generally works from home to assist a client or clients with professional, technical, communication, and creative advice. Nothing spiritual in that definition. The need for a virtual assistant is basic: reduce our work load, give us more time personally and professionally, and flexibility. Nothing spiritual there either. To be among the five-star virtual assistants, one must: Express him/herself… 

Light from Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker

When I began reading this novel, I kept questioning what I’d missed in the first chapter, so I went back and reread the chapter. Questions remained unanswered until the end. The toss-up between what was real and unreal and whether Cohen Marah actually killed his father kept me turning the page.

Were the dark shadows Cohen saw symbolizing demons or was he simply afraid of the…

Storms pop up along life’s path and we become engulfed in a flood of unwelcomed circumstances that take us on unexpected detours. Detours that take us away from our daily routines and responsibilities. We all face times when it seems God might have forgotten to shield us with his protective arms, and yet, we know in our hearts that He is right there with us every minute of every day. He never forgets who we are or what we’re going through….
