Its Wednesday

Life has been really busy lately. Last weekend I helped out with the preteen retreat at church. Its one of my most favorite events in the children's department. I love the preteen age group. They are thoughtful and fun. I had a blast. 


When we got to devotions the first night one of the kids came up to me and said, "I finished Dueteronomy!" (At least I think it was Dueteronomy and I hopeI spelled it right.) I was really confused and then he showed me his worn out read through the Bible page. It sure was marked off through Dueteronomy. (You read through other parts of the Bible at the same time.) I was so proud of him! I have unfortunately let mine go. I was encouraged to go pick mine back up and start again. If he can make it through Dueteronomy, I sure can try harder!

So I am not going to be leading in the kids department at church on Wednesday night once the new school year starts. I'll still be helping and involved, just not leading the service. Consequently I need a new name for my Wednesday posts. I would like to continue posts concerning my faith so  maybe something on that. I NEED YOUR HELP! Tell me your thoughts....

  1. That's amazing. I don't think I read Deuteronomy till I was in my 20s!

  3. Maybe I'm a little strange, okay who am I kidding, I am strange, but I kind of like the idea of Wednesday's Window. Let us see what you saw through your window (i.e. eyes, heart, thoughts, etc) on Wednesday. Just an idea. :-)

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Mary Poser by Angel A.

I just finished the book Mary Poser: Butterflies and White Lies as Bollywood Comes to Nashville. In this book, dutiful pastor's daughter Mary meets Bollywood producer, Simha Das at the Nashville Film Festival and the many different events that follow send Mary on a roller coaster of emotions. When her ex finds out about Simha he appears back in Mary's life wanting to make amends. Her critical mother has to have opinions about everything in her family's life. Her brother, sister and father are all restless with their lives that have been lived in the same city. Her best friend from childhood is devious and manipulative. Plus, there are lots of other characters with their own set of problems.

What will the result be? Will Mary completely change or will she stay in the life that she has always known? 

I would tell you to read it to find out, but don't, seriously don't. 

This was by far the worst book I have read in a while. The events in Mary's life are described in …

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…
