Books, Pizza and Movies

Our women's ministry has a book club - PWOC Page Turners. I'm enjoying the group. I've been introduced to books I wouldn't have chosen for myself, we've visited a new café each month and the conversation is always encouraging.

Today we went to Caleb's Creamery. FANTASTIC Chai Latte.  This month we discussed The Prayer Box as well as all manner of topics burning on our minds. I really enjoyed the various facets of this book. Below is the publisher's description.
When Iola Anne Poole, an old-timer on Hatteras Island, passes away in her bed at ninety-one, the struggling young mother in her rental cottage, Tandi Jo Reese, finds herself charged with the task of cleaning out Iola's rambling Victorian house.

Running from a messy, dangerous past, Tandi never expects to find more than a temporary hiding place within Iola's walls, but everything changes with the discovery of eighty-one carefully decorated prayer boxes, one for each year, spanning from Iola's youth to her last days. Hidden in the boxes is the story of a lifetime, written on random bits of paper--the hopes and wishes, fears and thoughts of an unassuming but complex woman passing through the seasons of an extraordinary, unsung life filled with journeys of faith, observations on love, and one final lesson that could change everything for Tandi.

Michael had his follow up MRI today. He brought home Papa Murphy's for dinner.  We rounded out the evening with "How to Train A Dragon 2" and "Apple Dumpling Gang."

Choosing Joy!
