My Distraction

I haven't been nearly as devoted to the blog in the last few days because of all the Fall busy-ness...and because I have my face stuck in a book--a really good one. If you haven't read Same Kind of Different As Me you are missing out. Wow! I am 2/3 of the way through, so hopefully, I'll have some time for writing again soon...

This book is precious! I read it this summer, and I couldn't put it down.
Their story is incredible...and I want so badly to live a compassionate and loving life such as the Hall's.

I've read your blog and love your sweet stories. You are inspiring!

I read it in 2 days which is unheard of for me! It is an amazing story that gave such a strong message to all that read it. Hope you enjoy! Blessings, Ashley

Oh me, I read that book a few months ago. I could not put it down either. And the last 1/3 of it...well, let's just say the tears FLOWED!

Oh yes, this book is amazing. It is one of those books I don't want to end, but I also couldn't stop reading it.

I read this book and OH...it was powerful! I loved it! Especially chapter 22 (I think it's chapter 22) the part about "catch and release fishing". I have passed this book on to friends. It took me two days of staying up late to read this book and at one point I had to get up and get some water to calm myself from all the emotion. The last paragraph of this book I have written in my personal "book of quotes and things I want to remember". This book is definately one of my favorites.
