NEWEST BOOK/VIDEO REVIEW FOR 2018

The movie Purse-onality by Anita Renfroe is the selection for this week. She sings, prays and uses humor about our everyday foibles to draw the audience in. If you need a good laugh, pick up this DVD and enjoy comedy about everyday issues inspired by her love of God. Her songs are delightful and her prayers inviting while her faith shines through.


***   ***   ***   ***   ***   ***   ***   ***   ***   ***   ***   
Statistics from 2017 were: Neva Jean D was the most prolific reader with 52 checkouts to her name. There were 199 items checked out from the library this year – a 40% increase over last year. I know that some items were not on cards, so the number was more than that. Thanks to all the readers who help to make the library worthwhile.

Please, when checking out items, make up a new card for 2018 and follow the example in front of the blank cards (front of file box). That will help with keeping track of library items. Thank you! Also, if you are looking for something, please ask and we can help get it into the library for you and others.

The librarian would like to thank all of the people who have donated wonderful books and enhanced our library. 

GENERAL LIBRARY NOTES:

---All past 2017 books and movies, alphabetized by author last name (or DVD title) are found in a "pages" post for 2017 (see column on right-hand side).
---All past 2018 books and movies are found in a 2/1/18 post.

LIBRARY NEWS LIST FOR 2018

 LIST OF BOOKS and MOVIES FOR 2018
ALPHABETIZED BY AUTHOR LAST NAME


Bright, Bill and Dekker, Ted (Blessed Child)
This book of intrigue and danger is an excellent read. A young orphan boy abandoned in an Ethiopian monastery, a relief expert, and a French Canadian nurse all work together to escape to America and find out how really special this young boy is.

Bunyan, John (The Pilgrim's Progress)
Designated one of the most important books in the English language and an important Christian allegory, this book was written in 1676 and is worth reading. It is about man's search for salvation. This book has been printed, read and translated more often than any other book besides the Bible. Pick it up for an interesting read during these gloomy/sunny days!


Cooke, Cynthia (Luck and a Prayer)
A love-inspired romance – just right for these gloomy, foggy days of winter. It is about a policewoman in unfamiliar territory with dark shadows trying to solve a mystery. It is a story about trust in God and acceptance. 

Laurie, Greg (Hope for Hurting Hearts) 
We realize that life is fragile and when we lose someone, we are shaken. Read this book. Some of the chapters titles are intriguing such as Where Were You, Lord? and A Choice of Eternities. Pick up this short but powerful book and ponder our short life on earth and how to deal with loss. And check out a couple of new books in the Children's and Youth's section.

Oke, Janette (Drums of Change: The Story of Running Fawn) 
This a book about Blackfoot woman who is struggling to put together her beloved history and the takeover of the white men and their religion. The story takes place in Calgary and her new school, Mission Boarding School. Janette Oke has many other book series in our library.

Warren, Rick (The Purpose of Christmas)
So Christmas is over but is it really? Pick up this book by the author of the bestselling The Purpose Driven Life and founder of Saddleback Church in California. He claims Christmas is “the best news we could get” by meeting our three greatest needs. Chapters include A Time for Celebration, A Time for Salvation, and A Time for Reconciliation. Pick this book up and reflect on Christmas during the start of the New Year.

THANK YOU FROM ED AND JULIE

To the Church Family
Thank you so much for the monetary gift as well as the gift certificate to the Davenport Hotel. Your more than generous hearts blessed us immensely! May God bless you above and beyond! We have tentatively planned a February get away to the Davenport to celebrate Julie’s birthday. The money will go towards (hopefully) better health as we want to use the funds to purchase a piece of exercise equipment that we have been “eyeing” as our Elliptical “died” on us last winter. Thank you again…so very much!

PS…thank you Darlene for the beautiful card…it’s a keeper!! ` 
With Sincere Appreciation
Ed and Julie
