  1. Although I have not yet published my children’s Biblical fiction book, I my story has been accepted for publication in the November/December issue of “Angels on Earth,” a sister publication of “Guideposts.”
    Wish I had more time to read all the books on your list…they sound intriguing!

    1. Congratulations, Jarm, on your forthcoming publication! That’s great news. Guideposts is a fantastic publication.
