Who Are you?

It's Wednesday.... hump day as so many call it.  Halfway through the week with only two days to go if we don't count today. 

Today we want to hear from you!  Who are you?  Where are you from?  Are you a writer or a reader?  What's your hobbies? 

Anne and I want to know our blog readers!  Some come out of lurking mode and leave a comment.  For one special one of you,  I'll shoot some coffee off in the mail when I draw a name on Friday.

So enough of us. ... What about YOU?

  1. Hi, Jaime & Anne!

    I read, primarily, non-fiction until a couple of years ago. Read Liz Curtis Higg's bible studies & progressed from there to her fiction & now have just about everything she has written. Thru following her web posts, I entered my first blog hop less than a year ago & feel like a "kid in a candy shop".

    I never realized there were so many wonderful Christian authors, & am so enjoying learning about all the authors, their books, & Christian fiction, in general. Thank you!

    I am retired, live near Louisville, Ky., & love reading, worship music, singing, playing musical instruments, movies, traveling, baking, & photography. I've had my share of problems, but love the Lord & have been blessed by Him.

    1. Hi Janet, I LOVE libraries. We are in the midst of revamping our church library soon. We are a rural church in the heart of Amish country. We did a study recently and found that we had a large volume of Christian fiction being checked out to the Amish. They don't read the Amish fiction much though. :)

  4. I'm both reader and aspiring author. I'm also a busy homeschool mom of 4 kids, so my writing time is precious. (Speaking of which...I need to go work on some edits before the little people wake up.) Love what I have read of your blog!

    1. "CJOY" Thanks for sharing about yourself. You must be a very busy mom. I was never the type that could have home schooled, so hats off to you. Bless you on your writing journey! We love hearing about everyone. :)

  5. I'm a reader. I wish I was a writer, but I'm not. I make homemade cards (my hobby) and can't even come up with words to put inside. lol. Oh well... that's why they make sentiment stamps!!

    I am a mom of 5 - My oldest started her senior year (and her first year of college) and my youngest started 1st grade. My husband is Senior Pastor at a medium sized (around 260) Southern Baptist Church in Savannah, GA. :) I volunteer at the Baptist Center and I work with the Acteens at our church. I used to watch a little boy in my home during the school year... but he moved away during the summer, so this is my first school year without a child in my home-- a BIG milestone.

  6. I am a reader, certainly not a writer!

    I started reading inspirational fiction as a teenager back in the 1980's or early 90's. Janette Oke was the forerunner in the market and my intro to the genre. I lean towards historical fiction, but there have been several contemporary authors I have read and enjoyed lately!

    I've really enjoyed discovering all the Christian author and review blogs in the last year to two. Such fun to win a free book now and then!

    I'm single, no kids. Never thought I would end up that way, but trust the Lord to bring the right guy along if that is his will.

    1. Welcome to CCC Patty! I'm just loving hearing from you all. I "fell into" Christian fiction with Janette Oke also, thanks to my grandmother's gift at Christmas. I'd always struggled with reading, but finally I had something of interest worth the effort!

    2. I think we ALL fell into Christian fiction with Janette Oke :) So glad you're hanging out here and keep commenting. Singleness can be a great calling! Sounds like you have a solid perspective...the Lord bless you!

  7. I'm a reader and coffee lover. :-) I'm not a writer, but I do blog regularly, mostly about homeschooling. I have two sons that have graduated from our homeschool, a son in 9th grade, and a daughter (who also loves to read! Yay!) in 7th grade. Our family is involved in music, youth ministry, and local outreach at our rural church in west central Maryland. My husband and I are originally from Canada.

    1. Hi Kym. Yay, another coffee lover! I'd love to hear what genre everyone loves the most. Of course Jaime and I are historical lovers, but we also enjoy some contemporary here and there. My kids also enjoy music. You have me wondering how you Canadians landed in MD!
