Maybe you’re afraid of spiders, maybe it’s the unknown, or snakes, or heights, or failure, or isolation, or fill-in-the-blank. Read on for more!

Book Look – Deliver by Tricia Mingerink

Can something broken ever heal?

Martyn is broken. After torturing his best friend, he doesn’t belong anywhere in Acktar. No matter how far he runs, he can’t lose his guilt.

Leith is broken. While healing from the torture he received at Nalgar Castle, he struggles to find his new role. But can a Blade ever run from his past?

The country is broken. Bitterness divides town against town, neighbor against neighbor. What will it take to deliver Acktar from itself?

They face their hardest battle yet.
Peace.

The book Deliver by Tricia Mingerink, is the fourth and final book in the series the Blades of Acktar (which we reviewed here). It comes out today, April 25th! Yay! (Can you tell I’m excited?). I’ve read it, and it did not disappoint. No one ever writes a book to tell about what happens after the war, after the good guys win, so it was very interesting to see what happened to all the characters we love. I recently re-read the series, laughing and crying my way through it. I think I’d forgotten how much I’d enjoyed it the first time around!

Detailed Dialogue – Tricia Mingerink

Tricia Mingerink is the author of the awesome Christian fantasy series the Blades of Acktar! She is a twenty-something, book-loving, horse-riding country girl. She lives in Michigan with her family and their pack of pets. When she isn’t writing, she can be found pursuing backwoods adventures across the country. With that, I’ll leave you to enjoy this interview!

Th!nk teen Christian magazineWhat inspired you to write the Blades of Acktar?
DSC09457-2It was a combination of experiences I had at a secular university and researching my own family history during WWII in the Netherlands. That, and I just one day woke up with this image of a dark room with black-clad men sitting around a table. I knew one of them was Third Blade Leith Torren and he didn’t want to be there. The rest of the story came from there.

Th!nk teen Christian magazineDo you have a favorite character in your books?

DSC09457-2I love all of them, and it is really hard to choose. I think Leith is my favorite by a tiny bit, probably because the whole series started with him.

Th!nk teen Christian magazineWhat is the most important piece of advice you would give your fifteen-year-old self about faith?

DSC09457-2It might not look like it now, but God does work all things for good. It might take years, even decades, for that good to be revealed, but it will come. As a fifteen-year-old, I was struggling through some difficult things. In the end, those things strengthened my faith, changing it from a child’s faith to young adult’s faith, and now those difficult things are what I look back on as a reminder that God can and does provide His grace when I need it.

Th!nk teen Christian magazineAside from writing, what are some of your other passions?

DSC09457-2Reading, camping, hiking, and currently renovating my 100-year-old farmhouse.

Th!nk teen Christian magazineWhat is your favorite Bible verse, and why?

DSC09457-2As you could probably tell from my previous answer about faith, it is Romans 8:28.

Th!nk teen Christian magazineThanks, Tricia!

March 2017 Magazine – Holiness and Being Christ’s Bride

Spring is almost here! Welcome to March! 🙂 This month we have a lot of fun put together for you, from crafts, recipes, an interview, a new author, and more! Needless to say, over here at Th!nk, we are very excited to share this month’s magazine with you. The theme is two-fold: holiness, and also what it means to be Christ’s bride. Both of which are very important in every area of our lives. We have this very special gift: as God’s church we are also His bride. We are pure, holy, cleansed, and sparklingly beautiful! Even if we were completely filthy before.
