It's a new month, and that means a new pick for Delilah's Book Club!
The timing of this month's choice could not be better. We've had catastrophic flooding in our lower Gulf states, as well as terrifying wild fires in the West.
There you are, you've made it through 79 rounds of chemotherapy and had radical surgeries on your liver and lung performed, and still you're told you have only 3 months to live...
What would you do?
I chose my July book club, Cultivate, because author, business owner, and mom to three Lara Casey offers sound and grace-filled advice: “We can’t do it all, and do it well. But, we can choose to cultivate what matters.” Gee, how familiar does that sound?
New Book Club: This Life I Live by Rory Feek.
Chronicling the journey neither of them were prepared to take and letting the world take it along with them, Joeys’ story, the tenderness of her heart, and the message of God’s love was sent to millions...
Gobi first finds Leonard when he wasn't looking to be found... but a turn of heart and twist of fate soon has the shoe on the other foot and it is Leonard who goes in search of the little tan terrier who won his heart.

I never really thought of myself as a "middle child". Gifted computer hacker? Check. Fashion trailblazer? Double-check. Finest prankster in my sixth grade class? Triple check, but then something happened. Things messy, you see I did something really bad, and I mean really, really bad. Bad enough to get expelled for, bad enough to have to move cities for, AND even bad enough to be sent to a shrink for.
At first, I thought Dr. Scales was just a sad old man with a hazardous dandruff problem, but you know what? By the end of the summer, I was a changed girl. But then in our last session, the day before my brand new middle school life was about to start, he gave me a mission:
Find the most bullied, friendless, hopeless, laughed at, lonely girl in the entire school and befriend her.
Her name was Marta the Farta and you could see her from space, she was that bad. She looked like a homeless Disney princess. Her teeth were the color of butter, her hair defied gravity and provided homes for small animals, and yes, she loved to fart. But she was also the most talented gymnast I'd ever seen in my life. We're talking Olympics time and all she wanted was to get on the gym team, but the mean girls wouldn't let her. So anyway, this is the story of how I changed her life and yeah, alright, fine, how she changed mine.
