The Yada Yada Prayer Group by Neta Jackson. This is book 1 in a series and I saw number 7 and 8 in the "New Arrivals" section at our library. I had not heard of the author or this series, but the thing that caught my eye was that it is marked "Party Edition- with celebrations and recipes". I am in a book club with my MOPS group, and a few months ago we read a book and our host made a recipe from the book. It was so fun to tie the food we had into our selection. I have already started book number 2 in the series and loved the cast of characters that meet at a Women of Faith conference.
Fireproof by Eric Wilson. There is somewhat of a hub-bub about this movie/ novel going around, but I had not heard it until recently. Someone at our MOPS meeting mentioned it and I had no idea what she was talking about. On Thursday I happened to be taking a relaxing visit through a book store (after attending a funeral in the am so I was kid FREE) and saw the book on sale. This story is about a firefighter whose marriage is falling apart and his fathers tells him about something called "The Love Dare". The message in the story is that you "never leave your partner" and strengthening your marriage. I finished this book in 2 settings, I loved it so much. I am excited to see the movie now!
