"The Secret Keeper" by Beverly Lewis

Heather

With my feet on the ground and my heart attuned, I will reach for the stars (Camp Motto from Camp Crestridge for Girls in NC).

The sovereign Lord is my strength. He makes my feet like the feet of the deer and enables me to go on the hike. Hab 3:19

The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do To Get More of It

Not about weight loss/maintenance specifically, but definitely applicable to a lot of the challenges we face.

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

The Amityville Horror.

Some say it was a true story. While I believe the young man murdered his parents and siblings there (he's doing six consecutive life sentences in prison), I'm inclined to believe what I read in Snopes.com about the haunting phenomena: They're probably fiction.

The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen; historical fiction set in Regency Era England, and one of my favorite authors!


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Intriguing story; would prefer the PG-13 version if there were such a thing. Don't tell me how it ends! I'm almost done.

I just finished The Fault in our Stars by John Green; amazing!
Even though I am far from my teen years, as someone living with stage IV cancer, the story really resonated with me.

Now I am starting Under a Blackberry Moon by Serena B. Miller.

I also just started The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I am hoping to see the movie, but I almost always prefer to read the book first when it's movie based on a book.
