Book Club

Each month a group of fabulous women get together over lunch and wine and discuss the book that was chosen for that particular month.  January's book was "Bad Girls of the Bible" by Liz Curtis Higgs.  This book was inspiring!  The author really put these bible stories into our perspective.  She took women of the bible and wrote a realistic story of what happened, which really personalized it for me and brought it home!  Then she discussed the real story in the bible and talked about how things like that are happening in our everyday lives and how are we going to learn from these stories. It was great to see these women were raw and hurt and like us. You would never have thought the women of the bible would be conniving, jealous, and BAD! It was very eye opening and good to know they werent perfect like I imagined them to be. I was able to learn from these stories and re-evaluate my life. Great book! I encourage you to read it.
