I’m not a professional Book Reviewer (duh) as some of you are, so I’m not bound by the ‘Canons of Review’ Etiquette. Rule number one (01): the one about ‘personal commentary’? Yeah, that one pretty much went by the wayside eons ago. Sometimes I don’t even write what the book’s about I get so caught-up in the passion of it. Reviewers aren’t supposed to say, ‘I love/hate this book’. Pa-lease …..

For the past few nights, I’ve been keeping company with Norman and Henry. We were on holiday in Ulster (Ireland) just recently, and “I’m not going to tell you much about the holiday except to say it was a grand month and we enjoyed every bit of it even though it rained much of the time.”* – it is there where we first met Miss Hargreaves (Hargraves).

Right now I’m living in the 1930s, on 38 London Road in Cornford, Bucks. Miss Hargreaves recently arrived, and we (Norman, Henry and myself), are about to enter the actuality of our imaginations. Bloody wild.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
