Life’s too complicated for easy answers.
It’s too precious for oversimplified shouting matches. And it’s much too interesting for all the dull drivel we listen to day after day. Starting right now, let’s embrace the complexity of all that’s around us. Let’s cherish every precious minute we’re alive.
Let’s chase wonder like our life depends on it.
I’m Charity Singleton Craig, an author, essayist, novelist, journalist, or more simply … a writer. In essays, articles, novels, and books, I chase wonder through stories of faith, hope, and love.
I’m so glad you’ve dropped by. Even though this is a website about me and my work, it’s designed with you in mind. I hope you find the encouragement and inspiration you’re looking for.

Written for the daily realities of the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, Pandemic Prayerbook will give you….
- words to speak over this crisis when you don’t know how to pray.
- a healthy way to enter into our communal suffering and connect with God.
- a stay-at-home way to support various people affected by this crisis.
- a way to recenter when you’re over-saturated with the daily news.
- a memento of God’s work in your heart at this historic moment.
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

The Art of the Essay: From Ordinary Life to Extraordinary Words
What kind of writer are you?
This is the question Charity Singleton Craig asks as she opens you to a journey of discovery about the art of essay writing that explores both practical and reason-for-writing concerns.
From a near hummingbird disaster to a secret foray into hilarity, you’ll find yourself inspired alongside the author— to reimagine the simple stuff of your life as a starting point for thoughtful, sometimes amusing, always voice-infused writing that’s your very own … as well as being a true gift to the world.
A great title for personal writing journeys, classrooms, and writers groups.
“Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.”
~ John O’Donohue
As I See It …
“If you don’t know where you’re from, you’ll have a hard time saying where you’re going.” ~ Wendell Berry
Life is good here in the Hoosier State. We take pleasure in simple things. We look out for our neighbors. We wave when we pass strangers on the road. The seasons change, the weather stays unpredictable, and we find beauty, grace, and wonder in it all.
Join me over on Instagram for a pictorial journal of my writing life here in the Midwest.
“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”
~ Neil Armstrong
