About Christine E
Christine is a follower of Christ and a lover of books and good food. She is recently and happily married, learning more each day of the goodness of God. She loves to spend her days either in a good book or in the kitchen, preparing simple, filling foods that also delight the palate.

Life is good, she insists, and each new breath is a reminder that, whatever the circumstance, God is still good.
