Yesterday was Good Friday–the day Christ died for our sins.
Easter (which is this Sunday) is the most important holiday of the year. Good Friday is also important, because we need to remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us. He was mocked, beaten, tortured, and ultimately killed in one of the most excruciating ways. It’s the day we stop and contemplate that we, sinful human beings, deserve eternity in hell, but Jesus, who was perfect, took that punishment for us. He was the only one who could–and He did–make the ultimate sacrifice for us.
Happy Friday, everyone!
Two years ago, I met teen author Kayla Woodhouse at a writer’s conference. She wrote–and published–her first novel with her mom when she was twelve-years-old! I was very excited when she agreed to do a interview. She’s such a sweet person with a love not only of writing, but of sharing God’s Word as well.
Here is my interview with her:

I touched on an issue that I see becoming more and more common in young adult books, but today I want to explain why I think this is an issue in more depth.
Author: Ally Condie
Isn’t that one of the most gorgeous book covers you’ve ever seen?
This week I’m posting a review of Matched, the first book in The Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie (AKA the Best Secular Series of All Time). This will be my first review on this blog of a secular book, but I highly recommend the series.
