Oh, The Places You’ll Go — Dr.Seuss
I have loved this book for as long as I can remember.
It’s a classic to read over and over again!
You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t.
The Help — Kathryn Stockett
In 2009, after leaving a career in corporate marketing and business development, I situated myself on the couch in front of a very tall stack of books I had wanted to read for four years, but never had the time. It was during this time I read The Help. I love Stockett’s writing and witty language, plus her likeable (and not-so-likeable) characters. I’ve read The Help at least three times.
You is kind.
You is smart.
You is important.
The Organic God — Margaret Feinberg
In 2006, Aunt G gave me her copy of The Organic God because she had finished reading it and thought I’d like it. She was correct. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I wrote a note to Margaret Feinberg. Weeks later, she replied. When Margaret came to Fort Worth for a TV show appearance, she invited me to the studio. Since 2009, I’ve attended every show, conference, and ministry event Margaret has been a part of in Texas. I am also blessed to call Margaret and her husband, Leif, friends. Their cutie-patootie poodle, Hershey, is my furry friend. =)
While it’s a word usually associated with food grown without chemical-based fertilizers or pesticides, organic is also used to describe a lifestyle: simple, healthful, and close to nature.
Deep down inside I still hunger for a true, pure relationship with the Organic God — the One True God. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In him is found the mysterious wonder of the Trinity. He is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
