RevGalBookPals: God, Improv, and the Art of Living

When I am asked if I would like to receive a book for review on behalf of RevGalBlogPals, I say, “Yes!” I don’t say, “Yes, but I already have a lot to read and I don’t know when I’ll get to it.” (That’s not really a ‘yes’.) I don’t say, “No. I don’t want to… Read More

The Lord answered Job’s friends out of the whirlwind: “Who is this that gives counsel by words without knowledge?

RevGalBookPals: The Path Between Us

Disclosure: I have attended two BEs (Big Events) with Suzanne Stabile and received two free copies of this book, plus the study guide, for review.
