7 {a must read!}

 Ok so,
when Patty was here
(I won't stop talking about Patty's visit for another 2 1/2 months,
just so you know),
we went to hear Jen Hatmaker speak
at a women's dinner at my church.

She was amazing.
You'd be mighty blessed if you listened to it.
(You may have to skim through the sermons to find hers).

Patty and I were so blessed and convicted
and resolved to never speak of anything other than
serving the Lord.
Even though we whine endlessly to each other
about various and particular things,
we are determined to be thankful and
walk humbly with our God.

Patty and me.
And the rest of my fabulous friends.

Here's Jen.
She was so dang funny.
And real.
And funny, funny, funny.
And the word she brought messed me up real good.

And I immediately wanted to
buy every single book she's written.
(I need to stop starting sentences with And)
But I have no money.
However, God has a way of providing
all the things we need (big and small)...
and my dearest friend Mary loaned me three,
count them, THREE, of her books.
I is soooo giddy.

And I'm reading this one first.


I have never laughed OUT LOUD,
and felt so convicted, all in one page.
After page, after page, after page.

go buy this book.
Or borrow it from your friend Mary.

You will love it.
And you will love me for recommending it.

I must go now.
There are little children begging me to
feed them dinner.

And because I'm a good mother,
I will feed them.

Enjoy your Tuesday evening.

(Today is Tuesday, right?)

Oh I'm so glad you got the book! I need to borrow it from my friend Lisa since she's talked about it for months now! I'm just a little slow. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

Oh, I need a friend Mary to borrow the book from! I am making a new reading list now...

Karin said...

I havent heard of that one before. I need a friend to borrow from. :)

I'm gonna check the local library. When I wanted to reserve "Kisses From Katie" there were 16 holds...maybe this one will be easier.

Shannan of FlowerPatch FarmGirl was at the same event. That is so weird! She recommended the book a while ago, I guess I really need to read it. Sometimes I am afraid of reading something like that and the new thing God will then call me to do... know what I mean?

Holly said...

Well, okay then!

Rebecca said...

I read her blog every once in a while. She does seem funny. I have wanted to read her book "7" also... I love that whole concept of living on less.

Jean said...

Sounds really good!! I wish I had a friend MAry to borrow it from... but then she'd probably never get it back!

I better go buy it! I am so good for the economy!
