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.

Written by: Megan Bourdreaux
"It took months of God waking me up in the middle of the night before I realized I was the one He was calling to leave my comfortable American life and move to Haiti."
Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the inspirational memoir of an accomplished and driven twenty-four-year-old who quit her job, sold everything, and moved to Haiti alone--all without a clear plan of action. Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips, but each trip multiplied her sense that someone needed to address the devastation--especially as it affected the children, many of whom were kept as household slaves on the poverty-stricken and earthquake-wrecked Caribbean island.
Three years later—on the former site of voodoo worship in Gressier--six acres atop Bellevue Mountain are home to the nonprofit Respire Haiti. Many still come to the area to make animal sacrifices, but Megan and her staff of nearly two hundred are transforming this community as they educate, feed, and address the needs.
Miracle on Voodoo Mountain by Megan Boudreaux is a very inspiring, heartfelt book. The book chronicles Boudreaux's journey as she finds her life purpose in Haiti, starting an organization that does humanitarian work and helps children in need. The book was very interesting, and because the content is so compelling, it is definitely a page-turner! Though many people reading the book may not be called to the mission field, the book is very easy to relate to, and Boudreaux is a great role model for anyone who wants to make a difference in the world.
Boudreaux writes the book in an intriguing and genuine manner. Readers will especially like this book if they want to learn more about Haiti, mission trips, or Megan Boudreaux's specific ministry, Respire Haiti.
Miracle on Voodoo Mountain really is a story about a miracle, and readers will be touched after finishing it. Additionally, readers will enjoy learning about Boudreaux's personal life through the book; she eventually [spoiler alert] adopts two little girls from Haiti and marries someone who shares her passion for Haiti…
