I would like to introduce you to Keri Nicole. I found out a little bit about her and we have more in common than she knows! We both like playing the piano, writing, playing Dutch Blitz, and playing volleyball. She has written a book called
"In Paths of Righteousness" and she is trying to spread the word about her new book, so I am posting about it for her. You can read a synopsis of the book below. I have not read it yet, but I am planning on doing it soon. Wish you the best, Keri! Love Ashley
David Riley is a typical, hard-working farm boy of the late 1800s, growing up in a
Midwest community where religion was a tradition that none dared to challenge. He and his friend Jill set out to explore the “Old Man’s Path,” to uncover the mystery of an old wives’ tale, and it turns into more of an adventure than they bargained for. When they discover long-held secrets in the town of , David is determined to find the truth—regardless of the cost. Detweiler
As he faces opposition in his search for the truth, David also finds a battle waging within.
He and his friends struggle to be kind to Henry, a cruel bully, and his mother, a widow bitter toward God. But as his hatred for Henry grows, so does the darkness in his own heart. With an emptiness that threatens to consume him, David despairs of ever pleasing God. When all prospects of finding peace appear lost, he meets a strange old recluse, thought to be long dead, who offers him both friendship and hope.
David discovers something in common with the mysterious stranger—but what binds them together threatens to tear his family and community apart. Will he have the courage and determination to stand for what is right? Facing rejection in the greatest decision of his life, David must choose which path to follow: a religious tradition to live by or a faith to die for.

Now for the saying of the week:
Bible verse of the week: Romans 8:28-31
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn amongst many brethern. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Isin't that cool?! Verse 28 goes along with the saying of the week!
Song of the week: O To Be Like Thee. This is the second stanza of this song, and in 2 more weeks we will have completed it.
O to be like Thee! full of compassion,
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind,
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting,
Seeking the wand'ring sinners to find.
O to be like Thee!
O to be like Thee!
Blessed Redeemer, pure as Thou art;
Come in Thy sweetness, come in Thy fullness;
Stamp Thine own image deep on my heart.
Please strive with me to make this your prayer for this week and we could also pray for each other. :)
