CURRENTLY READING

” ….. When the Heron brotherband become the Skandian duty ship to the Kingdom of Araluen, they’re excited at the challenges ahead. Hal, Stig, Thorn and the Herons eagerly set off for the trip – with an unexpected new crew member aboard. But an enemy from their past returns, throwing the Herons into a dangerous quest to free captured Araluens from the slave market in Socorro. Even with the help of an Araluen Ranger, the task may be too much.” Google Books

For those of you who don’t know, the Araluens are from John Flanagan’s The Ranger’s Apprentice epic series, written with characters who became my fast friends. So, as you may surmise, I am looking forward to seeing them again!

I’m not exactly enamored with ‘love’ stories, but for some reason these two keep calling me.

      Well then, since you have reread it, am I to assume it is a good book? Yes. But of course. Now, for certain, I will read it.

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
