The Waiting Place
By Eileen Button

When I saw this title I thought it might help me with my patience (or lack thereof), and maybe God can use it to help me in that way, but I found the book brought back many memories to my mind and I have remembered things from my life as I have read this book.

The author has an intriguing writing style that pulls you into her story. I didn't like the bywords, but I enjoyed the candid stories the author tells from her life experiences. It is a book that makes you reflect on how your attitude and moods affect others. Hopefully, I will be a better person for reading this book.

Be the People: A Call to Reclaim America's Faith and Promise
By Carol M. Swain Ph.D.

A very courageous and knowledgeable book on American history, today's issues and political agendas, and ideas on improving our future.
I am very appreciative of Dr. Swain's knowledge and ideas.  I am proud to be an American and am interested in seeing a return to our traditional values and ideals.  I would like to thank the author for including our foundational documents in the appendix: The Ten Commandments, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution of the United States of America.

Common Sense!

Money Secrets of the Amish: Finding True Abundance in Simplicity, Sharing, and Saving
Author Lorilee Cracker
Most Americans tend to spend everything we make on payments for things that we will replace before they are paid off. We need to step back and assess what we are doing to ourselves, as well as future generations. The only inheritance we provide is an allusion because money is still owed on what we hand down.
This book gives practical advice on how to live within our means, and help others as well. Another thing that amazes me about our economy is that we have such a hard time grasping the concept that few are not able to support many. In Amish families everyone has their own chores and responsibilities. They take care of their elderly relatives, and respect the knowledge that they have to share.

Women of Faith Worship Team CD

I am excited about this new CD. The best part is the fact that the songs magnify and praise our Blessed Lord. One of my favorite hymns is Great Is Thy Faithfulness, I am glad it was included on this CD.

I am a fan of Acoustic Gospel Music so I find the background music a bit overpowering and distracting, but I appreciate the lyrics. I think this will be some good get up and get going morning music for me!

Our God is so worthy of praise!!
