Currently reading...

Well, Dustin's going to have to show me how to make a fancy Currently Reading section because I'm not computer-savvy enough and don't care enough to figure it out on my own.

I wanted to share a book: Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God, by Noel Piper. I'll probably be sharing a quote or two over the next few days, in hopes it will motivate you to go grab a copy.

Dustin bought this book for me during our courtship. A sweet suprise complete with a great card which greeted me after a long day on the job. Unfortunately, I'm just now getting around to reading it. While Dustin's been gone, I've been spending the day toggling back and forth (?) between reading and attacking the to-do's. It is an excellent book, highlighting a short biography of 5 precious women.

Please take the time to read this review of it at the much-improved Discerning Reader. Click here to find out more about this excellent book. You can borrow my copy when you're done, if you'd like. I'm half-way done. Enjoy!!

Thanks husband!

Hi Jamie,
I attended SBTS with your husband for a term, tell him I am looking forward to listening to the DG conference on online video and that I still like Driscoll.

Take care and God Bless,

Shu! I heard so much about you. Sorry we just passed each other in our time here. I'll tell him you're a Driscoll fan. Come visit. =)

Sweet Jamie,

Looks like a great book to read. I have read the autobiography of Ester Ahn Kim. What a testimony of God's grace in a believer. I have the book (found it in a thrift store)if you ever want to read it. I will be glad to mail it to you.

I miss you. Write and I will write to you.

Love, Mary

Sweet Mary :)

Did you get that one e-mail I wrote you from work awhile back? It was long. I'll write again soon. I sure miss you. Excited about your new grandbaby. I would love to read that book. Dustin brought me books from the conference of more Christian biographys (written for children/youth) to share with my kids. I'm so excited.

Love you!

James -- I LOVE the book! It was amazingly encouraging to me, and convicting...these women sacrificed to KNOW the Word, and to MEMORIZE the Word, and their passion for the Lord was so evident in their actions and obedience! What great riches we have in the biographies of past saints!
