Today for “Wonderful Wednesday” I want to share with you one of my favorite bloggers, BooMama. I have been reading her blog for years and am so thankful for her gift of words, but also her gift of humor. One cannot read her blog without being filled with joy!
Next week, BooMama has her third book coming, Giddy Up, Eunice! If you have not read her other books, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet or Home is Where My People Are, they are all totally worth your time.
I saw a link a few weeks ago for an advanced reader copy of her newest book, so I filled out the little form, but then my computer locked up and I figured I had just wasted three minutes of my time by trying to fill out the form on our old (but mostly faithful) computer.
The week before we went to the beach, I was so surprised to get an advanced reader copy in the mail! Thank you, faithful computer!
Mamaw read it first and she just laughed and smiled the whole time she was reading it. When I would ask her about the book she would say things like, “This lady is relating the Bible to me!” and “You need me.”
Mama finished the book in less than three days. As she handed it back to me, she said again, “You need me.”
So I picked up the book eager to read and I will tell you what…Sophie has done it again! She has taken her wonderful humor and Biblical truths and has intertwined them into a book that will help you relate to the women in the Bible and to realize how we can walk as Christian women today…encouraging one another.
And yes, Mamaw, was right – I need her. I need older women in my life who can encourage me and help me as I walk life’s journey.
And I need to be available to younger women in the same capacity…
Although I don’t have to write something on my blog, I thought it was the least I could do since they sent me a free copy of the book.
And because I might have e-mailed Sophie a few days ago to see if I could send her a free copy of my book once they are here…and asked if she thought it could help other mothers, if she might put a little review on her blog…
