I appreciate those of you who have left comments to yesterday's post.  This is a follow-up referring to the website I mentioned that I had not been able to access.  I have discovered that free2work can be reached through, if any of you are interested in further information.

For many, many years, I have been an avid reader!  I may have even mentioned some of my favorite authors on a blog or two - Jan Karon's series, Barbara Kingsolver, Rosamunde Pilcher, Nicholas Sparks - the list could go on and on.  In my role as Secretary of Program Resources for my Conference UMW, I will be encouraging the reading of books from the Reading List.  These books will have subject matter that, among other things, help increase sensitivity to all human beings - their needs, interests, and concerns.  There are three books I want to mention that pertain to the last post.

THE ROAD OF LOST INNOCENCE by Somaly Mam is a powerful book!  Google to find the website.  Other books include SOLD by Patricia McCormick and THE SLAVE NEXT DOOR by Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter.  

The last week of August!  That means it will soon be time for me to provide lunch for the adult day care at our church!  I must give a menu some thought! 

I hope you will return.  I appreciate  your comments.


  1. Sounds like some good books for those who read a lot! I used to read much more than I do now, and am SO far behind with books I already have, but that is still a weakness of mine, so I have to force myself to stay out of bookstores these days! We'll look forward to your plans for that lunch for next week's meal!

  2. I love to read. It has been one of my greatest pleasures in life since I was a child. I love Nicolas Sparks and I have several of his books on hand to read.

  3. Thanks for the book list. I love a good read and have read all the authors you have mentioned. I loved Kingsolver's - The Poisonwood Bible. I loved the part where the arrogant preacher who thought he was telling the people to bring their babies down to the river to have them baptized and instead was telling them to bring them down to have them eaten by an alligator....and then he wondered why no one showed up!;>) Have a good night- xo Diana

  4. I love reading.

    I use my public library system, to find books.


  5. I love Jan Karon. It has been awhile since I read her. Now that I am in school I will only be reading school books. :)
    I hope you have had a nice week so far.
