Today is a Dancing Day!

Tweet This post is part of a community post. Every Friday, a one-word prompt is announced. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, and no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just writing the thoughts as they come. If you’d like to participate, or read other posts, you can find all the info you need here.) Just write. Welcome to my first 5 minute Friday post. I hope to join you some more in the future, but I have long been watching and reading (some might say stalking or lurking) from behind my computer screen each week. I was beyond delighted when I finally had the chance to see what today’s prompt was: Oh how very appropriate it is for today. Just a few hours before I knew the prompt, I told myself that if all went well with the final stages of getting the printer what they needed to print and send me a hard copy proof that I was going to celebrate.

Being a pastor, an author, and a speaker, one of the questions I always get from people is, “What are you reading?” I suppose it’s because they want to know what I would recommend, what inspires me, or what I’m feeding on.

Then it hit me – I came up with a brilliant idea – Book Review Monday!! Or at least I think it is brilliant. Plus it gives me a reason to read more! Now, let’s get started with – – – Book review Monday! I was very excited when Icon Media gave me an opportunity to review a copy of Lime Green: Reshaping Our View of Women In the Church, which was just released in September 2015!!
