What I Read in April

What I Read in April

Oh, dear. How embarrassing. Can you believe I only read THREE books in April? Emma by Jane Austen I’d never read this although Lorelei had been begging me to for years. Then I found out that Haley Stewart was running a Jane Austen book club, so now I will be...
Hearing God’s Voice

Hearing God’s Voice

In the stories of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Abraham, Esau and Jacob, Moses and others God was always talking to His people. Right out loud! I was fascinated. Why did God talk to them? I wondered. When did He stop talking to people? And especially, why...

What I Read in March

As I mentioned in my last post, I am writing this months after I read these books (but editing the publishing dates), and I find myself surprised at how well I was keeping to my goal. Probably the fact that Spring Break fell in March accounts for my having had enough...

What I Read in January

SIXTEEN BOOKS! Is that even possible? What on earth have I NOT been doing so that I could spend that time reading? There was a time in my life where I routinely read a book every day or two. But that’s been a long time ago. Granted, January is always a great...
A Cloud of Witnesses

A Cloud of Witnesses

I first encountered St. John Bosco as a second- or third-grader, in one of the old Catholic readers that even then were going out of fashion. We read that he used juggling and acrobatic feats as a way to attract the attention of street children so that he could share...
