Glenna Marshall is a pastor’s wife, mother, blogger, songwriter, and very soon-to-be-published author.

Authors with Swords: An Interview with S.D. Smith

Hello Sam! It is such a pleasure to have you join me for an interview. Thank you, so much! My family started reading The Green Ember books aloud after I graduated high school and all the commotion and excitement peaked my interest, and so I read them myself. Wow is all I have to say.

What made you start writing?

From the first time I was read to as a child, I was captivated. When I discovered there were real people behind the stories, I wanted to do that. There were lots of twists and turns after that, but I was always haunted by the vocation of storyteller. It finally caught up to me in a big way as a dad. I told my kids stories and one serial we shared over the years became intensely exciting for us. The Green Ember was born out of that series, and it was the catalyst for sharing my work with the world.

Interview with Ray Rhodes Jr. {The Prince of Preachers, Ordinary Faithfulness, and What We Owe to the Lady Who Gave Away Books}

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of reviewing the book Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon. It was easily one of the best biographies I have read in quite some time. You can read my review for it here. Today, I am honored to have the author, Dr. Ray Rhodes Jr. join me to talk about the book, Charles and Susannah, and what their legacy means for Christians today. I hope and pray it is as encouraging to you, as it was to me!

Interview with Robin Jones Gunn {Christmas, Stories for Girls, and Mother-Daughter Connections}

Hello, dear Robin! Thank you so much for joining me for an interview! It is such an honor! I first heard about your books through Hallmark Channel, when Erin Krakow from When Calls the Heart (one of my favorite shows) was in the movie Finding Father Christmas. We watched the movie, and then I checked out the book from the library and fell in love with it! Tell me, what was it like getting your book turned into a movie? Did you like how the characters were portrayed?

{Shop Spotlight & Interview} Audrey Bodine – Beloved and Book Shop

Kicking off our Small Shop Spotlight Series, it is my absolute pleasure to feature Audrey Bodine from Beloved and Book Shop! *insert loud applause here*

I stumbled across Audrey on Instagram a few months ago. What pulled me in was her 1) sense of humor and fellow appreciation of puns, and 2) her weekend writing advice. After following her, I came across her re-birthed shop, and knew it had to be featured. She graciously agreed!
