Blog Changes

For those of you who subscribe to my blog posts by email or read them on facebook, you may have missed the latest changes to the blog.  I've taken advantage of my "down time" in the famous chair and made a few updates to our family page.  It was high time for a little something fresh, considering the last photo I had up here was practically from the girls' pacifier and diaper days...okay, I'm exaggerating, but you get the idea.

Another change you will find is a separate page for my book reviews.  I have had more time to devote to giving my opinion on the books I'm provided by various publishing companies.  This has been such a huge plus in our lives, not only due to the fact that books are almost impossible to find here in English, but also because I'm able to preview books for FREE that I can later use in the ministry.  YIPPEE!  I figure, though, that my typical blog reader isn't necessarily interested in the book reviews I post, so I pulled them out of the mix and made a link directly to book reviews only.  On that page, if you check out the right side of your screen, you'll find a clickable list of the titles as well as a few of the publishers who send them to me. These reviews don't automatically show up on facebook, nor do they go out in the email subscriptions.  That means you'll wanna swing over here every now and then and check out the titles I've posted on, should you be so inclined.   I have to say that I've been so, so appreciative of these resources at this particular time in my life.  I've found encouragement, ideas, and entertainment in the electronic pages, and they sure help me pass the time.

Have you read anything good lately?


  1. Loved these books.... The Prodigal God and Counterfeit God's by Tim Keller. The Shack really helped me deal with mom's passing. I've also enjoyed everything I've read from Larry Crabb too.

  2. Hi! I've been busy on our vacation (having a wonderful time) so I'm WAY behind on what's happening--but we can soon catch up on the phone as we're coming to PY next week!!! :) I just picked up a book about Christians in China that I'm looking forward to digging into. I'll let you know how it is. By for now and (MAYBE) see you soon!!! (Also, love the new blog look!)

  3. I've read Prodigal God and The Shack, but I haven't read any Larry Crabb yet. I have been tempted by Soul Talk. You read that one?
