About Us


When we started SouthernReader.com back in the Summer of 2001, we created it as a secular e-publication, but with a leaning toward Christian principles. In fact, when asked for our submission requirements, we would simply state: “Whatever you submit can not embarrass the oldest lady in your church.” (We would come to understand, however, that there is a wide range of churches with a wide range of oldest ladies.)

Through the years, SouthernReader.com has featured a number of faith-based articles and stories, but the main emphasis was always on Southern literature. By the same token, we have created FaithLines.com to shine a spotlight on Christian literature, whether it’s an essay, a poem, a short story, or even artwork or photography.

We hope you’ll be blessed by this site, and if you have a moment, drop us a line.
