Fresh-Brewed Life

On 10/12 Angela Cook wrote: Fresh-brewed was an updated title from Nicole Johnson and though it included amazing truths, if you've been following Nicole Johnson for long, it was a little like drinking that lukewarm cup of coffee you seem to never finish because of kids and chores. I would really like to see something truly fresh ... New Pot of Coffee Needed

Stumbling Into Grace

Stumbling Into Grace

On 8/6 Angela Cook wrote: Stumbling Into Grace by Lisa Harper is one of reflection and retrospect but approached with the humor of being a woman who is searching after the heart of her first love, Jesus.

Outlive Your Life

On 1/5 Angela Cook wrote: Max Lucado is hands down one of my favorite authors. This is the second book I've read in the past year from Lucado that was written about how our lives are not here by accident but that we are truly here to leave a legacy for those who follow.

Although I've never been a huge fan of Whelchel's writing I will say that most of what I read in this book is for the most part, great advice for adult friendship.
