Too busy?

This is a review that I posted on Amazon for a wonderful short story written by a friend and mentor of mine, Mrs. Tattie Maggard.  I really hate that I took so long to get this posted.  I have been very busy with my college courses, the church, and my job as a middle school teacher.  When I was finally able to take to time to sit down and read this short, I kicked myself.  I've placed a link to this eBook at the bottom of the review for direct access.  I promise you won't be disappointed.    Here is my review of "God's Worn Out Servants." And by the way, it's free right now!!!!

I am so ashamed! This little powerhouse of a short was a wonderful jewel waiting to be discovered in my Kindle because I was too busy to finish reading it. The story hit me right between the eyes. I need to make some changes in my life before I totally burn out or something worse happens. This is a great short that is definitely worth taking a few minutes out of your daily routine to read. I implore you--if you are a pastor's wife you need to read this book. If you are a lay-woman working in your church, you need to read this book! This will cause you to re-evaluate your specific area of service unto the Lord. I applaud Ms. Maggard for her straight-forward presentation of two women serving the Lord who are too busy to breathe. I certainly identify! I really enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it!

The Collage: A Collection of Short Stories

From The Collage

"When told that I had to go back to college, my heart fell. At that point in my life, I had two teenage children and I had a two-hour daily commute. Adding more college classes to my already hectic schedule was not something that I wanted to do. However, as it is with most of life’s twists and turns, this route was one that was divinely designed. Even though I had written two books already, these assignments really brought out something in me and my writing. I learned more about myself than I ever wanted to admit! I thank God for those two years of late night work. Some of these pieces will make you laugh; some will make you think; and some will shock you! So, my words to you are, enjoy the ride."
