Unending Devotion by Jody Hedlund
Unending Devotion
by Jody Hedlund 

Unending Devotion is about a lady named Lily on a mission to find her sister.  She is living in the late 1800s and is working with a man who is her foster parent taking photographs of men in the logging industry.  Lily finds herself in many dangerous circumstances, most of which are caused by her determination and rushing into situations before she had the help she realistically needed.  Unending Devotion has some very tense dramas and is hard to put down.

I really enjoyed Unending Devotion.  It had a bit of romance in it, but wasn't a book that was full of romantic overtones or plain lust provoking imagery.  I would recommend this book.

Bountiful Baskets October 20th Asian add-on, pomegrantes, bread

Another great Bountiful Basket!  It has been a while for us.

Today in our regular basket we have bananas, dino kale, romaine lettuce, grapes, pineapple, celery, large butternut squash, onions, Asian pears, pomegranates, and tomatoes.  $15

We also got the bread assortment with savory 9 grain (our favorite so far), a sourdough blunt, and a baguette.$10

Another amazing Asian pack including celery, waterchestnuts, bok choy, napa cabbage, a piece of ginger, garlic, onion, Thai basil, green onions, and peas.  $9 I am so excited for this!  I haven't gotten an Asian pack since getting my new wok.  The wok is such fun tool in my kitchen.  I also bought a negi cutter when I got the wok and haven't gotten to use it.  It is a really sharp tool used for making shreds with veggies. 

Oh and I bought a case of pomegranates, yum! They are on the small side, which will be great because I think the children will be able to eat a whole one in a setting and they will, they really enjoy them and so do I :) $18.50 for 22 pounds 

I am really glad I was able to make it work this week and am realizing what I have been missing, so I will have to see what I can do next week.

Women Redeemed 2.0

In coordination with the launch of their fall releases, Kregel will be hosting a live webcast event on October 10th at 8 PM EDT featuring authors Kim Ketola (Cradle My Heart), Teske Drake (Hope for Today, Promises for Tomorrow), and Dawn Scott Jones (When a Woman You Love Was Abused). The webcast will allow women to come together to share their struggles and fears in order to move toward healing and hope. Women will able to support one another and discuss shared experiences in a non-threatening, open and loving environment.

Cat Hoort of Kregel says, "We are seeking to provide safe means for Christian women to be vulnerable with each other, to seek help and guidance from authors and counselors, and to find encouragement from those who have shared similar experiences. Our hope is that the Women Redeemed webcast will become a forum for hurting women as well as for those who can help. Kim, Teske, and Dawn are all survivors and their stories will surely inspire and equip other women to move toward healing and hope."

The authors will also be giving away books and other fun prizes at the Webcast.
