Each time I read a book by Christian author Kim Vogel Sawyer, I decide that particular book is my favorite. Now I think I have truly found my very favorite book by Kim, Where the Heart Leads. Taking place in the early 1900s, this book tells the story of a young man with Mennonite roots who must make some major decisions in his young life. I enjoyed this book so much that when I finished reading the last chapter, I didn't want it to end! Kim makes her characters "come alive" and the settings so real that it's easy to imagine you are there. Kim also weaves a spiritual message throughout the story, adding so much to the story without "preaching a sermon". ~ ~ I highly recommend Where the Heart Leads and, although I don't usually re-read books (who has time?!), I want to read this one again!
* * NOTE: At a Christian writers conference I recently attended, I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Kim IN PERSON and also taking a workshop from her! WOW !! This lady is precious! She was so kind to me, and was also a wonderful workshop instructor (not to mention at the Banquet she won ANOTHER Award!!). * * You will be blessed when you read her books.

A prisoner of hope,

Patti Jo, you commented on the Seekerville blog today, but it just now hit me that I know you. We met at ACFW, on the shuttle to the hotel! :)

It was great to meet you!

Thanks for visiting my little blog, Megan and Missy! I was thrilled to meet each of you at the ACFW conference! (Megan in the hotel gift shop, and Missy-yes, we met on the shuttle!). You both seem like such nice ladies, and I pray the Lord will continue to bless you and your writing.
Hugs, Patti Jo :)
P.S. Missy, I really enjoy the Seekers blog !!
