Reading a New Book

I’d forgotten how much I like novels by Joel Rosenberg. I read The Last Jihad, The Last Days, and The Ezekiel Project years ago. I’ve followed his blog http://www.joelrosenberg.com but haven’t read any of his books in a while. Saturday I received The Kremlin Conspiracy in the mail. I’m part of the Tyndale Blog Network…

Fall Reading List

For almost two and half years I traveled with my husband. We visited 48 states. But I was home most of last year. Being home allows me time to read great books. I’ve done lots of reading!

Books I Read Since Summer

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. I’ve posted my reading lists every few months, but beginning last June I haven’t had much time to read. I was spending lots of time writing instead. I read only six books from July through December; however, being home without as much writing to do, I’ve been reading…

Biblical Hospitality 

Yes, I’m going to ask again:Who are you going to reach out to this week? Who are you going to invite to life with you.  Seriously, I’m asking! Who? If you attended IF last weekend…Did you hear the message? Do the small things. Do them. Do them to the glory of God.  Invite a friend…
