It's a...BOOK!!

After 9 months of consistent reading of hundreds of books and annotating them, Dave has finally birthed "Faith Reads"...his first book!!

I'm so proud of him! I really didn't know when it would arrive...it wasn't on my mind at all Monday morning. Alyssa entered the room with a box she had "found on our doorstep". I asked her who it was from...after a little searching, she read "Greenwood Publishing". (Deep sigh) "Oh. my. goodness! It's Daddy's book!!" Lots of shrills and leaping about ensued...we were all so excited! I didn't know I'd be so happy to see it :) But I am...

In case you're wondering what kind of book it is...it's a bibliography of Christian Non-fiction, a reference book to find books written by Christians on almost every topic you can think of. It's a first of it's kind. Although it'll be sold mainly to libraries, I think it would be a wonderful tool for any Christian. If you've ever walked into a library or bookstore and were clueless as to what to read, then thought you'd like a book on...say, home decorating...written by a Christian...but didn't know how to find that and neither did the librarian or book store clerk, then this book would be your friend.

And...if you're as excited about it as we are...please tell everyone about it. You may even ask your local bookstore or library if they have it yet! Thanks in advance if you do!
