A Native American Thought of It....

Happy Friday!  Has it been a good week for you?  Do you have some exciting week-end plans?

Here, the reading continues.:-)  Today's book is from the Leadership Development area of the United Methodist Women book list for 2014.

This book tells of more than 70 items and ideas that were vital to native survival. and is recommended in the Youth category.  Credit on our reading list can be given for reading Youth books.  I am on my way to having Plan III of the Reading Program fulfilled during this year, with three books from each of the five areas - Education for Mission, Nurturing for Community, Spiritual Growth, Social Action, and Leadership Development - read during the year.

Is there a book you are currently reading?  Let  us hear about it!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. This book looks very interesting and informative, and I hope many of the youth will take advantage of it. I love to read, but it seems that most of my reading these days is done from a computer screen, keeping up with emails and Facebook posts! Somehow, I need to trim that down, as I have two books that I have not even opened, and I've had them for nearly a year! Have a fabulous Friday, Sister!

  2. Nellie, My grandson who is graduating tomorrow, once did a report about Indians, in grade school. He was so happy to be from a line with Indian blood. Funny, now that I think of him all grow and leaving his high school life . Blessings for a great weekend. xoxo,Susie

  3. I'd be very interested in medicine and healing. My grandfather knew some of the native medicines as people relied more on natural healing in the old days.

    Have a great weekend Nellie.

  4. Hi Nellie, Looks like a great book.

    Yes, we moved in a week ago Wed. and we are just about settled in.

    I hope you have a great weekend.

  5. The book looks very interesting Nellie!

    I always am reading a book! One right after another, one of my greatest pleasures in life.

  6. Wow- That looks like a really GREAT book, Nellie. There is so much wisdom and lore in the Native American culture- xo Diana

  7. Another interesting book you have there.

    I'm always reading a book too. I've just started Guests on Earth for my book club.

    Thank you so much for the birthday card. I got it today right on the day. How very thoughtful of you. : )

  8. I would love to learn more about the native American Indians. This looks like a very interesting book.
    At the moment I am reading a book titled "The Happiest Refugee". It's the story of a family who escaped Vietnam and Communism. They made a hazardous journey in a unreliable boat and finally arrived in Australia. The story is about their journey, hard work and success in this country, with one of the sons becoming "Young Australian of the Year"
    Have a great week-end Nellie!

  9. Way to go Nellie! I am behind on my plan this year.
    Last year I did plan 4 but this year I may just do Plan 1. Have a nice weekend. I am going to a book review at a local church tomorrow on the book " I am amazing", I think. i have the book on my ipad and it is charging.
