Women of Faith - Over The Top!

The Women of Faith Conference is coming to Sacramento again October 14th and 15th! This is an amazing conference that travels all around the country, teaching, preaching, and inspiring women with the Word of God and the grace of Jesus. I went to this conference last year a little speculative, but my heart was quickly moved by the women, the singing, and the sharing of the women. This conference is a life changing experience. It changed my life, and I believe the lives of women I was with. I encourage you to see if there is a conference in your area!

I just saw an advanced screening of the movie Courageous. And, since I drank caffeine too late, and I was soo moved by this movie, I have to tell you about it. If you haven't heard of it, check it out here.
This movie moved me like few movies ever have, if any.  It is a movie about fatherhood, and a father's responsibility to raise their children, and lead their families.

There are not words to describe how amazing this movie is. This movie calls men, and families, to action.  It inspires and challenges our men to take action and ownership.

I was so grateful to be able to see an advanced screening, as it doesn't come out until September 30th, and it is all my husband has been talking about for months!  He was incredibly moved by this movie as well.  This is a movie you definitely need to bring your tissues to, and leave your pride at home.  Great job!

Enchantment by Guy Kawasaki: A review

I received this book from Bzz Agent, to review and create excitement about.  I really like the way this book is broken up, easy to read and easy to find what I'm looking for.  I sort of feel that they way its broken up disrupts the flow of the book, but I agree that this book is a great resource not only for business owners and managers, but just for the everyday average Joe or Jane like me.  It has great insight into how to be a positive influence in the lives of others.
I would recommend this book if you are looking to work on your people or business skills.

They have some great campaigns...everything from lipstick to software! I have been a member for years and I love them! So pick me BzzAgent!

Harvesting a Heart

I just finished a book I wanted to share with you. It is by one of my favorite authors, Jodi Picoult. The book is called Harvesting the Heart.
. I happened to come across this one at a "Friends of the Library" sale for a dollar! It isn't typical of her writing, but while it was a little hard to get into, I really enjoyed it and couldn't put it down once I started reading it. It is about a woman and a man who fall in love, one from a poor family, another an aspiring surgeon. It is an intensely emotional book, not a romance novel by any means, (I wouldn't read it if it was!) But an exploration of a relationship and what happens when a woman must discover who she is before she can love another person. It explores marriage, motherhood, family, in-laws and hurt in a captivating way. I would recommend this book!
