Best of the Best

The Truth Comes Out is for anyone who had dealt with a difficult relationship in their life, especially family. Nancy's honest and vulnerable struggle to love the "unlovely" takes you through a spiritual transformation that only God could bring about . . . Nancy's changed heart. I found this to be not only highly interesting but helpful in learning how to have true empathy for those who you love but don't approve of their behavior. EXCELLENT READ!


Gideon's Gift made me cry. I always try to read a Christmas novel around this time of year and have enjoyed two other books in Karen Kingbury's Red Glove Series, but this is the best yet! My eyes were opened to a segment of our society that we all ignore with either apathy or disgust, the homeless, and makes them "real" people that we care about . . . with a very touching ending. If you want to get in the true spirit of Christmas,it is a must read this season.

EVERYONE needs to read this book! It's Not Okay with Me takes you on a roller coaster ride from 9/11 to the slums of Africa and will challenge you to your core. "Janine Maxwell owned one of the largest marketing companies in Canada that boasted a blue chip client list. Then on 9/11 she found herself trapped in New York City when all transportation in and out of the city stopped. She had to fight her way home to her family in Canada.
The world-changing events of that day became the catalyst that first sent Janine into a deep depression and later to the darkest parts of Africa in her search for the meaning of life. What happened next was a roller coaster ride from the board room to the streets of Africa where she found herself standing face to face with the AIDS pandemic and trying to understand what to do with 15 million orphans who are left in its wake. Her story is brutally honest and will take you straight to the heart of the issue of Africa's great need." from CBD website

I've said ITS NOT OKAY WITH ME! Read this book and let me know if it's not okay with you either!
