A Must Read!

I'm back today with another must read book. I'm serious about this friends. Susanna Foth Aughtmon is an amazing 'tired supergirl'. Don't you just love that, 'tired supergirl' tell me you don't feel that way...a lot! She is a wife, a mom, an amazing christian, a blogger and an author. I enjoy her blog daily (you must check it out) She makes me laugh out loud and makes me say a serious 'Amen'. She has written two books, devotionals really. Her first book is called, "All I need is Jesus and a good pair of jeans: The tired supergirls' search for grace" It is wonderful, read it! Her newest book is the one I want to talk about today, "My bangs look good and other lies I tell myself: the tired supergirl's search for truth" In this book she sets out to debunk the lies that we supergirls believe, lies spoken to us directly from "The lier" himself. For example: Lie #1 God is out to get me Lie # 5 God will want me to do things I don't want to do and Lie #7 God doesn't hear me. I want to talk about Lie #7 because it struck a cord with me in my life right now. In the midst of my busyness, does God really hear little old me? Really? The closing paragraph in that chapter is one of the most profound and amazing God images I have ever read, join me friends, after reading James 1:5-6 she says, "So take a quiet moment. Breathe. Empty your heart before the God of the universe. And then-here comes the important part-believe that He will answer. The believing is as important as the asking. And as for the lie that God doesn't hear you, supergirl? Shut the door on that lie. Don't believe it. God is not deaf to you. God Listens. He has memorized the sound of your voice. He is doubled over, leaning down, listening for what you have to say. Start talking."<>

This book will move you, make you think, maybe even make you squirm a little. But it will also make you laugh out loud..maybe even snort! Susanna Foth Aughtmon makes me feel like I'm siting down with a friend, sharing stories that you want to say, "Oh, you have that too?"

Read this book today, and I promise you will not be disappointed supergirls!

Available now from your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker publishing group or from Amazon:

Sounds like another great book, Anna! Can I borrow your copy?

Your kids were so delightful again today - what fun we had!

Thanks, too, for spending time with Grandma so often while we were away. She appreciated your visits so much and it was great to know her days were filled with family and friends.
