stories
featuring courage received through God's grace

William A. Wright (Bill) and Dale Ann Edmiston (Brave Knight Writers) are a husband-and-wife writing team. Bill gets the ideas, discusses them with Dale Ann, and writes up the draft; Dale Ann then works on the content and line edits. Our theme is all about spiritual warfare (hence the brave knights), because our stories feature a character tapping into courage received through God's grace.

Plain Values

In using the term Plain Values, talking them up or talking about them seems counter intuitive. The people and stories in their magazine are plain folk, living out the routines needed to fulfill daily living. So, why would I blog about them on a site about courage? Well, because in today’s world, their choices and lives go against the grain, the mainstream doesn’t acknowledge or condone their lifestyle choices.
