But today I wanted to give YOU something... I have 2 books to give away and then I want to give you all an explanation of why I do what I do!!! What do I do??? I don't know either!
The first book is called "God in the Whirlwind; Stories of Grace from the Tornado at Union University" by Tim Ellsworth. My husband and I both went to school with Tim and he is also a fellow Illini or whatever you call someone from Illinois. This is a book that my husband and myself could not put down. It is account after account of how God brought each student or faculty through that night when the monster storm ripped through Jackson, Tn. I would recommend this book to a believer that just wants to be reminded of God's protection and grace, but I would also recommend this book to a non-believer, one that might be struggling to know if God is for real. You see Him all over the pages of this book! You DO NOT have to be a Unionite to enjoy and truly experience this book to read it! Wow - it blew me away - no pun intended!
The second book is called "Pull Up A Chair; You, Me, and the Gospel of John" by Lorie Looney Keene. I was able to meet this author down at the Women's Forum in Nashville a few weeks ago. What a neat lady! She made me feel extra special in that she is so calming and does not come across as better than or "I have arrived" that I feel so often from speakers and authors. (Let me add that it is most likely not that they come across that way, but that I am so intimidated or insecure that I allow that feeling to overtake me.) This is truly a wonderful book and very down to earth much like I found the author. Anyone could pull up a chair and feel like Lorie was right across from you taking you through the book of John. The book is very interactive. You might even find yourself carrying on a conversation with yourself - in a good way though.
I am not sure if you noticed, but today is my 666th post. For that reason I wanted to talk about what my Jesus means to me!!! That number has such bad connotations and because of that I wanted to do nothing more than make sure my focus was all about Him. So that is what I have done on my video blog today. It is long - i am sorry - in advance, but how can you be short about Jesus! You might have to come back later today and see the video - maybe because of the rain it is having a hard time uploading, but please come back and find out what my Jesus means to me.
Ok - for the giveaways - if you will leave a comment of any kind I will put your name in a pile for the giveaway! There will be 2 winners since there are 2 books. Spread the love -K?K!
Love you all - thanks again!
