We are already half way through the month with the first book of the Book Club. It has been amazing to see the freedom that Intimate Issues is bringing so many women and their marriages and future marriages.
IT'S TIME TO REVEAL
THE MARCH BOOK CLUB SELECTION:
What is (nearly) every woman's favorite chick flick?
If you didn't guess Pride & Prejudice, then I'm just not sure if we can still be friends. ;)
Yes, ladies (and any brave men that care to join us), we are READING our most favorite chick flick--
You can find it HERE on Amazon.com. Also, available on Kindle!

The Pressure's Off by Larry Crab
There are two basic approaches to life -- two pathways One creates pressure, the other provides freedom. In the Old Way of life, as best-selling author Larry Crabb describes it, "you've decided that what you most want out of life is within your reach, and you're doing whatever you believe it takes to get it." But in the New Way of life, "you've realized that what you most want is beyond your reach, and you're trusting God for the satisfaction you seek. You want Him. Nothing less, not even His blessings, will do."The Old Way -- the way most Christians define life and pursue fulfillment -- is fundamentally wrong and harmful. It leaves us tired, in bondage, and feeling distant from God. But the New Way brings true freedom and refresment as we tap intot he power to draw closer to God in a personal way.

You will also strengthen your vocabulary with Words from the Word. Conversation Peace will help you revolutionize your speech habits and improve your relationships.
And if you have any other recommendations, please submit them.
*Also, so you know what I am thinking as far as book selections-- I think we will rotate between something that improves our minds, hearts, souls, bodies for one month and then switch it up and do a light reading (fiction typically) the next. How does that sound? Also, I don't want to pick books that would leave out a group of women. So I (more than likely) won't ever do a book on parenting or a topic that would not be applicable to all women. Men are of course welcome to join in, but our target is women.
Love you so much! This is so much fun to do with you!
