  1. Good book review. So hey, how's that pre-k book offer coming along? I'm so happy for you! Both my kids have temps of 102...please pray that by Easter Sunday they are healed.

    I miss you Tracy! I've been doing the whole viewing of the blogroll to help out that site.

    You have been such an honor to have known you. And to see you on facebook is such a joy!

    I'm soon going to get a whole (unique) blog make over; can't wait.

  2. I love John Maxwell. He's one of my truly favorite writers, so I'll have to check this one out.

    Happy Easter, Tracy!

  3. This sounds like a book I need to read. It seems lately that my dreams have been shattered. With daughter running from God and us; struggling with finances ...I could go on. I feel all I am trying to do right now is survive each day.
    God was not surprised by this ...
    HE will give us direction.

    Have a Happy Easter!
