Something Else?!

I’m more entrepreneurial than I ever would have dreamed. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to do three things: write, cook, and discuss theology. That’s it.

Releases!

Just a quote for you today

I’ve just got a thought for you today. You can tell me what you think of it and whether its a line worth expanding: “The only real liquid courage—whether you rely on coffee, liquor, or something else—is the living water of the Holy Spirit.”

Next week has THREE new Lutheran book releases!! Woo hoo!

Blessed weekend!

Lutheran Ladies’ Circle

I can tell you this, however: there are a bunch of Lutheran books, some of which I’ve been meaning to read for a while. 🙂 I’ll try to keep reviews to every other day at most. Ok? Today’s will be on  The Lutheran Ladies’ Circle: Plucking One String by Kris Knorr (which is actually a pseudonym for Barb Froman).

Bane & Blessing

First, that’s a great title. I could start many a discourse with those words. Today, however, it’s a title of a book. 🙂 Bane & Blessing is the first of two books by Lutheran author James Chinery.
