Congratulations Mary!

Congratulations Mary on being first to recommend a book on our book club blog!

Mary said:

"I have been reading a good non-fiction book over the holidays.
I would definitely recommend it.

"Through Gates of Splendor" by Elizabeth Elliot.

This is the story of five missionaries in Equador who died when trying to reach a previously unreached Indian tribe, the Aucas.
I found this book interesting and also challenging, especially as it sets forth the great desire these men had for the gospel to be heard where it had never been heard before."

Has anyone else read this book? Why not share your thoughts on it with us.

Blogging Challenge

As a member of the Business Mums Network, I have taken up the blogging challenge. The idea is to help us get our blogs moving and to encourage us to keep them updated and to give them a bit of a kick start as we start the new year!

I know this is not specific to the book club, but I'm hoping that it will motivate me to post more often for you girls, and I plan to post other articles that are book related on a more regular basis.

The first challenge is to let everyone know that I am taking up the challenge... and now its done. Wish me luck :)

The following BMN members are taking part:
Anne Maybus -
Gina Rahmel -
Michele Elmas - and
Justine Barsley -
Michelle Sweeney -
Shelli Crane -
Kylie Short -
Amanda Cox -
Kerrie Ptolemy -
Sarah -
Melissa Khalinsky -

If you have a blog of your own, why not join the challenge! I'll keep you posted :)
