Book Blurb Friday #35: "Let's Go to Church"


"Let's Go to Church"
by Kathy Matthews

Anna knew that the time had come to turn her life around. 

Getting saved at the age of eleven was one of the highlights over Anna's past ten years.  A rebellious teenager after her parents' divorce, Anna hadn't been walking with the Lord for quite a while. It certainly showed.  Her marriage of six months was in shambles, and there was constant arguing in front of the baby.  

Anna talked it over with Ronny, who agreed give church a try.  They decided to visit at least ten different ones to see if they could find a church that is a good fit for their little family.  This book is the diary of their search for a church.  

A great book; parishioners and church staff alike will learn a lot from it.  How do you find the right church?  How does your church appear to newcomers?  An insightful and informative read! (150)

Hi Kathy, so Anna it is indeed! As metioned before, I again like your use of simple language. A very personal story. Excellent questions. Thank you, Kathy.

(Also, I very much like your picture slideshow.)

It would certainly be interesting to read the book to find out how they choose, and whether they both like the same church or not, and if they take the baby into consideration.

I was ready to leave for the library to check out this book. Then I remembered your writing exercises from before and realized I'd been "suckered in" - for the lack of a better literary way of expressing myself.

GREAT blurb. I would buy this book in a heartbeat. I've done the church hopping, wanting so badly to find the right fit. Nice one! Sorry I'm so late to read your blurb.
