    I received this book from my church last Sunday, Mother’s Day. I finished reading it tonight. What an inspirational tool!!! I am currently meeting with my two neighbor ladies once a week. We are studying the Fruit of the Spirit by Beth Moore. It is definitely something that I needed at this point in my life.
    I would love to attend the Circle of Friends conference and learn more about this group from others.
    In section 23, I so related with a woman named Angela, except that I was the one who had the affair on my husband. I felt justified since he didn’t pay any attention to me for 11 years. I felt like I just existed. He was also smoking marijuana that whole time and that consumed his life.
    He begged me not to leave him and we decided to do what we could to save the marriage. We have 3 sons who we had to think about. So as a result, we decided to do the 40 day love dare challenge and attending New Pointe Community Church. Let me just say that we love each other more now than ever and love the Lord with all our heart, soul and strength. We have come some far in a world where many refuse to work on their marriage and just end it.
    I love meeting with my neighbors. I realize there are more people hurting than just me.
    Thank you for writing this book and opening my eyes to search out the gift that God has given me. I hope to find my place in this world very soon.

    I just finished reading your book, “Love me back to Life” which I brought at the Christianbook.com website. it was wonderful and inspriring. I am moving south soon with my husband, daughter and her family to Georgia next year–a life altering experience and keep turning to God for his direction. I’ll be buying more of your inspiring books as soon as I get the money. Thanks for your ministry–it’s very good for my shaky faith that I’m working on.
