The Beach House

Hello Ladies
I have already finished another book since I last blogged. It was titled The Beach House, by author Sally John. It was about 4 friends named Jo, Char, Molly and Andie (all short for their full names) who reunite after 12 years to celebrate their fortieth birthdays in San Diego. Somehow only annual Christmas letters have kept their friendship from fading away completely.
They get the chance to spend a week together in a cute little beach house and it gives them time to open up and reminise on days gone by, a time to grow closer to the God they once knew and maybe become the women they were really meant to be.
And that is all I will tell you. I may write my book review on this or Stealing Adda, it is a tough choice. I know if you read both of these you would enjoy them.
Hope you are enjoying your last days of summer!
God bless!

Well, the kids (Matt and Tori) went back to New York. It has been a bit more quite around this house. Jeff and I miss them very much. We took them and Anthony to Six Flags for some fun before we had to say farewell. We had a blast!! We enjoyed our time with all of the kids so much. It was so sweet when they kept thanking us for taking them to Six Flags. We knew it was a hit!
And in the midst of all of that fun I did get the chance to finish Stealing Adda. It was another good book, I must say. I haven't read one yet that I haven't enjoyed. This story let me reflect on the Book of Psalms and how David struggled and struggled. And even through it all God still loved him-just as he was, because He was teaching him lessons through his trials and tribulations and through his victories as well. I love that! Because I know He won't give up on me either!
I hope all of you are enjoying what is left of our summer. Whaaa! I am officially looking for work now. Please be praying for me.
Until later* Happy Reading & God's sweetest blessings*

Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great summer. I hope you are getting some fun time with your families and some time to read those wonderful books! I am enjoying Stealing Adda. Can't wait to see where this adventure takes me.
I am enjoying my visit with Matt and Tori who are here from New York. Their visit is short, but we will take what we can get, and we make the most of every moment! Our little girl is not so little anymore and our little boy is now a young man of 13 whose voice is changing and is towering over me (but then all of my kids are now-it is official!) I can handle that though! All my children are doing so well and I am so very proud of them, even in their struggles I see them growing so much. God is so good to us-and I am so blessed in my life!
I hope you all have a wonderful day! May God keep you strong and happy!

Our Club is Growing

We had our monthly Chick Lit Book Club Meeting on Saturday, and I was so happy to see two new people join our group. I would like to take this time to warmly welcome Kathy and Jaqueline to our group. Lucie and I are so happy you decided to share your love of books with us. This is going to be a fun time of reading, fellowship, and new friendship! I am so excited about the growth of this club, Lucie and I have prayed about it not being just a club but also a ministry, that God will use us for HIS glory. So if there is anything you ladies need, or any questions or concerns that you have, please feel free to voice them. This is YOUR book club too!
Until tomorrow, happy reading! God Bless!

Hello Ladies! Tomorrow is our Chick Lit Book Club Meeting at Starbucks and I am looking forward to seeing most of you there. Along with a new face or two hopefully!
I have been enjoying the visit of our daughter Tori, here from New York, so I have not been blogging as much as I thought I would have. My book reading has also slowed down, as I have a little girl that needs/wants constant entertaining. I don't mind though because I miss her so much when she is not here with us.
The book I am currently reading is called Stealing Adda by Tamara Leigh. It is really funny so far. I love the character-feisty, sassy, and yet I can totally relate to her myself! I will be giving you the review as soon as I am done so you will be hearing more about it.
Happy reading!
