I hope you enjoy Redeeming Love, I sure did. There are hardly words to describe it.

I just finished Redeeming Love and it's very powerful and impacting.

I loved Spiritual Mothering which I read a few months back. I found it to be both encouraging and thought-provoking.

And because I'm probably not going to be given another chance to say this to you - MERRY CHRISTMAS! =D
