On 3/20 Hammock Librarian wrote: These immortals don't play around. Thinking they must earn their way back to God's favor, they have been exacting justice on sinners for thousands of years. Is there a bit of us in their story? Do we try to buy God with what we qualify as good works, or are we willing to accept Christ's sacrifice as ... The 13th Tribe, by Robert Liparulo

On 4/25 Hammock Librarian wrote: I must admit that I don't always enjoy reading Max Lucado. My mother is die-hard, and probably owns every book he writes, but he just doesn't write in a style that holds my attention. HOWEVER, Thomas Nelson Publishers hooked me up again with an ebook, and I got a lot out of old Max's latest writings. ... Book Review, Fearless

On 2/5 Hammock Librarian wrote: Thomas Nelson Publishers once again supplied me with a wonderful book to read in return for my review of it. This book had to pass through a lot of hands to finally make it to me, though. I agreed to read it thinking it would come BEFORE we left the States. It came, in fact, the day after we left ...

On 2/5 Hammock Librarian wrote: On the advice of some veteran missionary women, I have come to value my "alone time" in the hammock as sacred. No, I'm not seeing visions of angels or having massive revelations from God there, but I greatly value that time each day, sitting out in the shade, where it's cooler than in the house. Sometimes ...

I love cutesy pop music (I was an original New Kids on the Block fanatic, and don't get me started on Milli Vanilli!!), but the fact that I am extremely picky about who my daughters are exposed to meant that I never got into the bare-midriff, ...
