Who We Are
Julane Hiebert lives with her husband in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas. As the daughter of a cowboy, her love of prairie and anything Western was instilled early. Through the everyday lives of her 1800’s Kansas characters, her passion is to present the hope of a faithful, never-changing, sovereign God. Yesterday’s Stories. Today’s Promises. Find her blog at Inspiration From the Commonplace.
Cherie Gagnon lives in Ontario with her husband and two wonderful boys.

As an aspiring novelist, she enjoys turning the lessons her family has learned and weave them into stories of hope and faith.

Kathy Gronau is at the stage of life where people often say, “Well, okay, what happens next?” Married to her high school sweetheart at age 19, she has experienced the joy of marriage, the trials of “and the two shall become one,” the excitement of birthing and raising two children, the challenge of “school again” at the age of 30, the rewards of a 25-year nursing career, the joy of grandchildren and the grief of loosing a husband to cancer after 42 years together. She is a breast cancer survivor, and won’t hesitate to ask you if you have had your mamo and colonoscopy. Her writing carreer is just budding as she dabbles in poetry and children’s Bible stories. Her blog posts are likely to be like God’s mercies, “new every morning.” Her heart’s desire is to serve the Lord. And so her most frequent prayer is, “Okay, God, what happens next?”
