Christie Lambert

Christie Lambert is a small-town, southern writer who is daily amazed by the love of God. Although she loves fiction and has published a few short stories here and there, her writing is now focused on sharing the grace of Jesus that has swept her off her feet. She is usually doing laundry for her three small kids and musician-husband, drinking (too much) coffee with her sister, and reading while cooking (not recommended for those who like edible meals). She is currently obsessed with learning how to play the guitar and finishing her degree in Religious Studies. Christie can be contacted at

Christie has written 41 on Christian Women Online.

I want to see God. Then again, want might be the wrong word.  “Want” implies that I’ll be able to go on with life without the desire fulfilled, doesn’t it?  I want a pumpkin spice latte, for instance, but will I survive without it?  Sure. I’ll settle for what’s at hand and keep that particular […]



We find that when we take up our cross, when we deny ourselves to follow Him, He is already there before us ~ bearing the weight, filling us with His own life and the power of His resurrection.  Jesus, giving us a ‘better life than we ever dreamed of’, gives us rest for our souls!  […]
