Is your Valentine a book-worm? The kind that loves to curl up in the corner with a cup of tea and good read? Or stretch out in the recliner and turn pages? I've got a short list of books that speak volumes about Love...
Uninvited, Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely, by Lysa TerKeurst, is my book club pick for December. I chose this particular book because it is a beautiful, biblical, honest, and witty look at how we process rejection.
The Magnolia Story, my book club pick for November, is THEIR story. It is one of hope and hard work, of shaky ground, of seeking balance, one of losses... and one of Gaines. In essence it is the story of the Great American Dream come true.
What if you walked into a fried chicken diner one day, one random day, and glimpsed a sight of a boy sitting alone at a table, ear pressed against an old boom-box that was held together with duct tape, and braces up his legs... What if?

"Korie’s commentary on being an 'intentional parent' was insightful, and two of my favorite sections were 'Patience and Contentment' and 'The Value of Being Kind.' I am also glad that Korie included a section highlighting three fun games to play with your kids." –Oak Tree Reviews
"Reading Strong and Kind is like having a cup of coffee with Korie and Willie while listening to their wisdom from twenty years of parenting. The author didn’t fill it with boring facts or statistics. Nor did she come across as a Ms. Know It All in her advice. They came across a down home country folks just sharing their hearts on the matter of raising our kids to be upstanding citizens in this crazy world we’re living in." –TidbitsOfExperience.com
"Ultimately, Strong and Kind, filled with real life stories from Korie and Willie’s parenting journey, is a straightforward, gently instructive call to not just be the best parents you can be, but also the best people you can be." –14-in-2014.com
