That’s My King! Jesus!

This video was shown in our church this morning and it’s amazing.  The man speaking is Dr. S. M. Lockridge and the video was posted by Albert Martin on YouTube.  I’m not sure who made the production but they did an amazing job and I hope they don’t mind me posting it on my blog for others to enjoy.

Women’s Book Club on March 9, 2013 Has Been Cancelled

Promises to KeepOur meeting of March 9th has been postponed due to the death of a dear lady from our church.  Her memorial service will be that day and I know most of us will be going to pay our respects to her.   We will let you know when the date is rescheduled.  Our next meeting TBA at the home of Jackie Chastain.  We will be discussing, Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock. This book was a 2012 Christy Award Winner and named as one of the Top Ten Historical Novels of the year by Booklist Magazine.  Visit the author’s website at www.anntatlock.com for more information about her and her books.

You may purchase the book yourself (either e-book or regular book) or read the Media Center copy.  Carmen ordered books for several of you and three of you still need to come by to pay and get your book.  Those who are reading the Media Center copy, get your name on the list and please read it within a week, so others will have time to read it also.  Ladies, we only have TWO weeks until the meeting.

If you need some motivation to get started, read this review by Zu:

Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock promises to keep you up at night or away from your work at work because you’re just not going to be able to put it down! The author draws you into the story and you can feel what each character is feeling…you laugh with them, you cry with (and for) them and you sit right now and have dinner with them. It’s one of my favorites and I can’t wait to discuss it in our March book club meeting.

We have a wonderful time at each Book Club.  First we always eat a delicious breakfast (of course!) and then settle down to have Carmen lead us in a discussion of our book selection.  We always have a wonderful time sharing our thoughts about the book and how God is working in the lives of the characters and how we can relate this to our lives.

In the past we have had a few special treats!  One meeting was hosted by our local Christian bookstore, The Carpenter’s Shop in Athens, GA, and Cindy Woodsmall (The Hope of Refuge) talked to us about her book and her life.  That was so special.  And two other meetings we arranged telephone conferences with the authors…Ann Gabhart (Angel Sister), and Jennifer Erin Valent (Cottonwood Whispers).  It was so wonderful to talk to each author and ask her about her book and how she comes up with her ideas and any future book plans.  We even watched a Youtube video from author Ginny Yttrup (Words) telling us about how she became a writer and a little bit about her book.

It’s always a great day at the Book Club meetings and we would love to have you join us.  You do not have to be a member of our church to join our group.

Happy Reading!

No Safe Harbor (Edge of Freedom #1) – Elizabeth Ludwig

No Safe Harbor (Edge of Freedom #1) by Elizabeth Ludwig

Elizabeth Ludwig is a new author to me, so I didn’t know what to expect when reading this book. I was pleasantly surprised. She was able to put together in one book all the genres I love to read. Historical, mystery, suspense, and romance.

The main character, Cara Hamilton is looking for the only family she has left. She leaves Ireland and heads to New York City in 1897 in search of her brother. But she could not possibly predict all the dangers that awaited her. Even though her brother warned her in a letter to not trust anyone, she befriended three people. Will they turn out to be friend or foe? Will she find her lost brother? Will her quest cost her her life or the life of someone she loves? You’ll have to get the book and read to find out, because I will not tell.

You will not be disappointed by this book, even though sometimes I thought things were moving too slowly, it was only because I was so eager to find out what was going to happen that I could not wait patiently. I tend to do this, hurry through a book because I can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen, but I’m learning that good books need to be read slowly and savored, to enjoy every minute.

I can’t wait for the sequel, Dark Road Home, to be released in August 2013.

The Choice – Robert Whitlow

The Choice by Robert Whitlow

Robert Whitlow has done it again.  He’s written a wonderful book on a tough subject.  This is the story of a young teenager who finds herself pregnant and is faced with 3 choices.  1.  Abortion 2. Adoption 3. Keep the baby.  You will go through this process with her and her family and then you will see what happens in her life many years later.  It’s hard to give a review about this book without “spilling the beans” and letting you know details that would be better for you to enjoy finding out yourself.  I thought it was amazing that God placed this book in my hands to start reading on the Sunday we celebrated the Sanctity of Life.  It really reiterated how precious every life is to God and how He can use each one of us for His glory, if only we let Him.

Come by and check this book out and read it for yourself.  It was a very good book and the way I know that is when I turn to the last page and finish the book and say “I wish there would be a sequel to this book!”.  That means it’s an excellent book to me.

Debbie
