If you are reading aloud, reading to share, or just quietly reading in a comfortable chair, the author takes you away from your worries and concerns into more adventures from her remarkable life. In Simpler Times: Reflections on Women’s Friendship, you met the women who influenced her growth as a Christian woman. In Simple Joys, she shares everyday life stories of an all-abiding God and his constant provision in her life and the lives of family and friends.
Each set of stories has its own theme, and each theme has its own little miracle. Faithfulness, humor, perseverance, joy, and awareness ride on the tracks of her life. Each tale calls for personal reflection into the often overlooked miracles that surround us on our journey. Poetry and prayer are coupled with her prose to add a touch of grace to every offering.
Because the author hopes that her readers will find within their hearts a longing to revisit their own milestones, each set of stories offers questions for reflection, scripture verses to peruse, and spaces to jot down thoughts that come to mind. The book is tailored for individual or group enjoyment.
The word pictures are designed to tug at your heart or to make you laugh and to add a wisp of wonder or the spice of surprise. In the long run, the reader will be more aware and see God’s little miracles along the road of their own life. Enjoy the journey!
