  1. Lisa-Jo,
    Looking forward to it!! For you, I will try to stay up past my early bedtime lol. I should have been a farmer’s wife since I’m up with the chickens 🙂

    Love your photo-bomber….leave it to Kristen.

    Love how you all are – that’s what makes this place “real”!! Thanks to all the ladies here for your prayers (you know who you are) xo

    Bev xx

  2. Lisa-Jo,

    This will be my first book club like this and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m in a new chapter of life – one where I completely give my life to God, trust Him with my future, and strive to spread His love. There are so many lovely ladies and I can’t wait to get to know you all more (:

  4. Thank you, Lisa-Jo and Ann! I listened in from Mongolia and I was touched by your sincerity. To find myself teary with you was a blessing. I am fighting to keep friends and to be a good (new) friend. Overseas from my ‘sweatpants’ girls. Not the most successful at meaningful relationships since leaving my passport country 8 years ago. I read Never Unfriended last week and God keeps bringing me back to the concepts of loving first and pouring out grace upon grace. Thank you both for your willingness to keep writing. (The Broken Way, 1000 Gifts, and Surprised by Motherhood included.) Please keep pressing on, as the Lord gives you words. You have been a blessing!
