Friday Coffee Friends Book Group

I have something that I am SO stinkin' excited about and can't wait to tell you...we are going to be doing a "live!" Friday Coffee Friends Book Group here in the South Florida area, and then we are also going to be able to tie in you, our internet friends, into the Book Group as well.

Every Friday we will meet at 9am in a Starbucks in South Florida to discuss WARRIOR CHICKS (more info below), and then we will open it up with this blog for comments and internet discusssion. This is a great way to stay connected with friends and family who are out of the area.

We will start reading the book this week and will be discussing:

Chapter 1 on Friday, October 5th.

This will give us an opportunity to ALL be focused on reading, growing, and staying connected to our friends who are not in Florida...especially for Gezina's friends in South Africa (HEY THERE EVERYONE!). So, what do you say...read below for more info on the book.

We are going to start a new book...WARRIOR CHICK, by Holly Wagner next week...we are giving everyone this week to pick it up and then we will take it week to week. Even if you can't join us, you can always read along, and post comments/questions on this BLOG.

You can go to amazon and pick up the book...

Let me share with you what the back of the book says...

"Some battles we choose, others choose us. The world is looking and waiting for a company of women who will rise in the midst of hard times. It would be so much easier to sit...to give in. And, yet, isn't there a part inside us all that longs to stand up and fight the battles before us?From her best-selling books GOD CHICKS and DAILY STEPS FOR GOD CHICKS, Holly Wagner identified and encouraged the cultivation of aspects of the God Chick within every woman. The subject of this exciting book is the "Warrior Chick" who realizes she is destined to be an overcomer as she faces challenges, is encourage as she realizes she is beautiful just the way she is, and is relieved as she learns how to equip herself to fight the fight. As Holly well knows from her experience as a warrior chick battling breast cancer, we aren't living in peacetime and we can choose to be either a casualty or a warrior. What's it going to be?"
