Book Review

I recently became a book reviewer for "Bethany House", I am sent certain books to review and all
I am required to do is give an honest review on the book. Most of the books I have read have been
amish fiction or prairie stories. Last month I decided to choose a book about a journey walking with God.
It is by "Dutch Sheets" and is called, "The Pleasure Of His Company".
  It has 30 short chapters. which I like since I am so busy. The book made me look at God in a whole new
perspective. He wants to have an intimate friendship with us, just like we have with our personal friends.
 God has a sense of humor, and he cares about every aspect in our life. Wow, does that ever make me
feel important and loved.
 Dutch Sheets also shares many of his life stories in the book and how God helped him in many ways.
 I highly recommend this book and know that you will look at God in a whole different way after reading this book. You will come to realize how to have an intimate friendship with God in your journey in life.
It sure made me take a look at God differently.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
