Good Read

A couple months back "Sister Sheri" at the "The Leaking Window" had a little book contest going on, so I entered it and won the book she was offering.

Not only did she send me the book, she sent me the complete Bible Study course. That included the Study guide and a Journal, as well.

I have loved this book........and it has helped me and healed me, yet, there is a fresh "wounding" taking place as well. It's hard to explain. But it's all good.

I have already recommended this book to so many people, one of my dear friends bought it and gave it to her husband for Valentine's Day and he LOVED it.

I thought I would now tell you as well. It is a book that would profitable in your lives, especially if you have felt as if your in a "season" in your life where you are not used for God or not like you used to be in times past.
Maybe your life's ministry has changed.
Maybe your not doing anything close to what you want to be doing for God right now....this book will comfort you and draw you. It will show you that it is okay and that there are "times and seasons" where even Jesus was "anonymous" in his lifetime.

Hence the title of the book.

Oftentimes.....these "Anonymous" times are merely for preparation for bigger things to come.

The book "Anonymous" by Alicia Britt Chole, now lays on my bedside table so I can pick it back up and re-read from time to time because the thoughts in it, which are all biblical, are so profound, yet simple.

Thank you Sister Sheri for sharing your gift with me. It's been a welcomed blessing to me at this point in life. I truly have been in an "Anonymous season" myself and needed to have this reassurance during this time.

Joyce,
Looks like a wonderful read and to want to re-read afterwards is very precious too. Enjoy!
We have finally come out of the slogs of rain and damp and wet and floods into the sunshine! Hallelujah!

Hugs,
Jean
P.S. Have a wonderful celebration of the Easter Season!

I heard the auhor Alicia speak at Bethany during a woman's conference during my divorce and I have never been the same since. So much healing. I got this book for Christmas and it has brought me so much comfort and insight into each of our SEASONS in this walk with God and tha each of them are important. And by far sometimes the anonymous years are the most important of all. Thank you for sharing this with others.

Dear Joyce

I am so glad that you won the book! And that it touched you as much as it did me!

It is definitely a book I will be reading at least once a year. God's blessings!
