Maria Elmvang Maria Elmvang said: " Danish book - directly translated it means "God, why are you asleep?" A non-fiction book about how we can see God's love even in the adversities of life. Leif Andersen brings up some very interesting points. "

rameau Learning to agree to disagree is a rare talent that should be cultivated. Thank you for the friend request. Glad to accept.


Margaret Chind Your interests and favorites do seem right up there with mine. I do love the Barenstein Bears. These new ones are especially fabulous by the son of the original authors Mark Barenstein. They are all directly Christian messages. They are just great.


Nightfalltwen You changed your user picture! Looks great!

Maria Elmvang Excellent! Thank you :) I can't wait to read it. The author sounds familiar... I'll have to see if I've read anything else by her or am just mixing her up with somebody else.

I think I'll like it too - we tend to share tastes otherwise, so I think it's a relatively safe bet :)

Shannon (Giraffe Days) Hi, I'm mailing you that book today, Thunderwith by Libby Hathorn (it finally arrived yay!) - let me know when you get it so I know it didn't get lost in the mail! I hope you enjoy it, it's one of my favourites and also one of the first books I ever owned, so it has extra sentimental value (it was a surprise buy from my mum who knew how much I loved it. She didn't often do things like that. Couldn't afford to. So it was doubly sweet). If you don't like it, well, we'll never be friends again! Ha no not really, but I think you'll like it.
