This is one that I really enjoyed. The story follows a Sunday School teacher, Mrs. Covington, as she decides to check up on former students and enlists the aid of cousin. It is a heartwarming story with delightful characters and lots of humor that made it made it a very enjoyable read. It is also a wonderful reminder that we don't always realize the impact our live might be having on someone else. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and it is one that I definitely rec ...more

Sunday school teachers earn a special crown in heaven, and Mrs. Covington should be one of the first ones in line. After years of teaching Sunday school to middle schoolers, she reaches the point where she begins to wonder how her former students have fared. She engages her close cousin/best friend to help her track down the names on her list, those who have not darkened the church doors since shortly after leaving her class.

This book has much to recommend it in the way of Sunday School teacher

Lovely book! Mrs. Covington's Sunday School Dropouts is a fun story to read. It's all about a Sunday School teacher who decides to look up her former students from years past, and encourage them to get back with God and back into Sunday School. It's such an awesome book full of stories of how one woman listening to God can impact a town and many people's lives. There are plenty of fun things that happen and compelling characters to meet...and the story becomes even more intriguing when Mrs. Covi ...more

I received a review copy of Mrs CovingtonsSunday School Dropouts in exchange for an honest review. Although the book had a slow start I was quickly pulled in and enjoyed so much the interaction between the two cousins. The twists and turns sure kept my interest. Cathy was an overcomer and had so much joy and humor as she overcame. I loved that she cared so much for her past students. Andi just added to the fun with her support and love for her cousin. I would definitely recommend this book.

The antics of senior citizen cousins, Cathy and Andi, left me laughing and amazed. Their life-long relationship is so very heartwarming. Cathy wants to touch base with her former middle-school Sunday School students and catch up with them. How she, with Andi's help, proceeds is what this wonderful story shares. It was just a tad of a slow starter for me, but I am so very glad I continued reading it anyway. Truly a lovely and uplifting read. I highly recommend this story. I received a complimenta ...more

I had the honor to review this book for the author. It started out slow then it really gets interesting. The way these two cousins work together is truly amazing. There relationship is remarkable. Watching these two find past Sunday school students is really interesting.

Mrs. Cathy Covington fits in no one’s box of expectations. She has spent 40 years as a presumed widow. The whereabouts of Mr. Covington are unknown. Is he a deadbeat husband and dad, or is he just dead? We don’t know. What we do know is that Cathy Covington - wife, mother and Sunday School teacher continued on, raising her six children and instilling the message of Christ into her middle school class. As the years go by, God speaks to her in a ray of sunlight and she becomes a woman with a missi ...more

I just finished reading Mrs. Covington’s Sunday School Dropouts by Connie Miller Pease. It is a Christian story about Cathy Covington. Cathy has been teaching Sunday school for over 40 years. She taught the middle school age children and had a unique approach. She believed in bringing the tales of the Bible to life (using actual objects like weapons and eating roasted or chocolate grasshoppers) and there was only ever one small fire. Cathy is now retired and needs a little project. She has decid ...more

I had trouble getting through this book. I struggled to read it! I had trouble with the way that the author was trying to cover too much information or too many different stories going on at the same time! Part of the chapters dragged on and then some of the jokes I really didn't think was funny. I was disappointed because I was excited to read the book based on the synopsis and I felt the synopsis was the best part. The things I did like was the idea of trying to go and see what happened to the ...more

Best Christian Fiction book!

I've read a lot of Christian fiction books & this one is, by far, one of, if not, my favorite! Cathy Covington, a loveable, sincere & tenacious Sunday School teacher makes a list of all the students that have passed through her class. With the help of her cousin, Andi, they hunt down several & the reunions are far from uneventful.....humor, sentiment & a little mystery are thrown in for good measure! I recommend this book for anyone who loves a good mystery, humor & w

I enjoyed this book. It was slow in the beginning but things picked up the further I got in the book. I loved how the first paragraph in each chapter was a glimpse into the moment of one of her Sunday School lessons. She is a Sunday School teacher I would love--one who thinks outside the box. I loved all of the little subplots with trying to reach her former students. I look forward to reading more from this author. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for giving an honest review.

My copy is signed by the author who was in our church youth group in the 70's. It's a wonderful story. I wish I was as diligent about keeping track of my former students as Mrs. Covington. My only problem was keeping all the characters straight. As a psychologist, Connie also reveals loads of insight into the personalities that she describes. Interesting!
