In 2007, God gave Grant Carroll a critical end times message for the American Church through a chilling dream his wife had.

That story is called The Glimpse, and it’s for youth, young adults, parents,church leaders and the Christian Church at large. It’s message is for you.

Finding Mr. Write is a mega-romantic story with amazing chemistry between the two characters, and Jeremiah is one of the most memorable and loveable heroes I’ve read in a long time. Carol Moncado’s writing reeled me in and hooked me, and I was eager to see how Dorrie and Jeremiah would overcome their secrets and unusual circumstances to find true love.
