Something That Lasts by James David Jordan.

When Ted Balik rises from his pew to speak, no one in the crowded sanctuary of the O'Fallon Bible Church can imagine that their peaceful community will be shattered by his shocking disclosure: Reverend David Parst, beloved husband and father and pastor, committed the unthinkable crime. He had an affair with Mrs. Balik.

As the church members explode into an uproar, Ted silently grabs a gun out of his pocket, raises it to his temple and pulls the trigger.

These few moments of horror plunge the reverend, his wife and their twelve-year-old son into a struggle with God and one another that will span generations - a struggle to find something that lasts beyond the rage, lies and fear.

Check out the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance today for a review of Something That Lasts.

ACFW!!!! I’m off to the ACFW conference in Dallas! I’m so excited to see all my friends. I’ll try to remember to take pictures. I’m very bad about that.

No book drawing on Thursday since I’ll be in Texas.

Have lots of fun without me!

  5. Here I am just in time to say goodbye and God speed you on your way to another conference. How many does that make this year?

    That book brings back several memories of pastors who have had affairs. I know for a friend of ours it changed her whole life. Her father was a pastor as well and when she found out about her husband's "other woman", it left both his family and hers in shock. I don't hear anything about him even though another very good friend helped the younger one through the whole episode. She was left with 3 children to raise on her own.

    In another case of an older pastor, everybody was amazed that God blessed his work all through the affair and even after that. But then, that was a lot like David with Bathsheba. And yet. Yes, we see it as one of the greatest sins but for God there are really no degrees of sin. Gossip is just as bad a sin as murder or adultery, though in most cases, the impact is not as great.

    Yes, it really does sound like a compelling book.

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
