Second book I started this week. This one is written by my friend Terry Squires.
Ninety short devotionals, written in first person. They will cause you to pause and consider the God we serve.
If you are looking for a new book to read through the summer, this is it. You will be encouraged.
I Seek Truth, by Terry Squires.
I joined a new Launch Team. I am working through an eight week study of Luke written by Erica Wiggenhorn. I’ll be posting about the study in the next few weeks.
You can preorder the book at your local bookstore. Just ask them for Unexplainable Jesus. It’s due out later this month.

I did quite a bit of traveling this spring. After being in Oklahoma for our son's wedding, I hit the road. I was away from home April 11 through May 10.

I spent a weekend at a women's conference (check out info for the fall conference) and eight days at a study program where I spent time with men and women from around the country. (The summer study program will be Mark.) I attended my youngest daughter's Read more [...]

I received a free copy of Before I Saw You from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Honestly...I loved this book!
It arrived last week, a week full of struggles for me. I won't go into detail, but this book spoke volumes to me. The way Sudie loves God and trusts His Word to be completely true without question. The way she is frequently encouraging Jaycee that God knows what He's doing. The sweet words of their pastor on Mother's Day. The kindness of those around Jaycee as she faces Read more [...]
