December 11, Thursday afternoon -- Reading Brennan Manning

Here on her honeymoon, lying next to the guy she married
Reading The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, by Brennan Manning.

A favorite book -- Obsession of the Soul, by Nicky Cruz, about how sharing the gospel should be an obsession. He used to be a gang member in New York City and now goes to different places and shares the gospel. She hadn't been religious until she went to Guatemala and when she returned she joined a church....where she met her husband!

If she were to write her own book, it'd be about dreams. She quoted Eleanor Roosevelt -- The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. If you forget your dreams in your day-to-day routine, you won't find happiness and without dreams you can't move on.

As a child she liked to read the Berenstain Bears. Sister! Brother! She has lots of nephews and nieces. The bears are like how a family should be, like, "'re turn to pick dessert!" Sharing.
