- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado
When God Whispers Your Name is the first book I have read by Max Lucado. Now I can see why he has such an amazing following! This book is a wonderful collection of stories that bring the Bible to life in a way that people can relate to in present day. Enlightening, inspiring and eye opening, I enjoy the way that Max Lucado speaks to his audience without speaking down to them or being overly preachy. Moses, Joseph, Paul, Jesus and others experiences are shown to us in a way that reflects our own lives. It was so refreshing! The overall message is that God cares for you. We need to remember that even when life is difficult, we can't give up. The best is yet to come! The writing is entertaining and engaging and makes you think. There is even a discussion guide in the back of the book for further reflection. I would definitely recommend this book to others and look forward to reading more books by Max Lucado in the future!
