Secrets of a Happy Soul with Katie Orr

Then, as the years passed, and I got more involved in church, my “happy” thoughts turned to ones of joy.

Joyce S I can't wait for my husband to buy me some more of your Amish fictions! I enjoy reading your books! I don't get out as much as I used to. I can't get around as good anymore so I can't get to the library lije I used to. I'm only allowed one book a month to borrow from my amazon prime account and I read fast so I get alot if free books from them from other genres that I'm not as interested in. Keep writing about our friends the Amish! I do so Love to read your stories about them!
Always!
Joyce

David Housholder Tricia, the Shasta area is a fave of mine. Did you know they originally designed the dam to be much higher but ran out of money.

http://youtu.be/-txvZGnRKlU

Trailer to my Summer 2011 novel. Rock on.


Melissa Just finished the Swiss Courier...I LOVED it!!! Great story and loved the twist at the end, didn't see coming :)

Deborah Piccurelli Hi Tricia,

Thanks for the invite. I know we're connected on other networking sites, but I don't think I visit this one often enough to track down friends. I'm so glad you found me, though!

Blessings,
Deb


Donald Parker Hi Tricia,
Thanks for the friend invitation. I thought we were already friends here. Too many social networks to keep track!! I hope to visit my sister this in late August. Hope we can bump into each other at church or something during that timeframe.
God bless!!

Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened.

Argh...this is terrible...

And today was starting out so well.

Again, I'm very sorry.

Tricia, I've added From Dust and Ashes, Arms of Deliverance, A Valley of Betrayal, Night Song and My Life Unscripted: Whose Writing Your Life? to my to-read list.


Tricia Goyer I'm reading Knit Together by Debbie Macomber and I HIGHLY recommend it.

Amazingly, I read a lot more non-fiction than fiction!

My all time favorite book is The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom.

Bonnie Hi Tricia.

Good to see you here. Haven't been to the site much--soo much to do and soooooo little time.

Do you have a favorite book you've read recently?

All time favorite?

Blessings,

Bonnie
