The Divine Secrets of the Whoopie Pie Sisters by Sarah Price and Pam Jarrell; not your typical Amish fiction. Instead of focusing on a romance in the story, this one has the focus on family, the relationships between 4 sisters who are running their mother's bakery after the death of their parents in an accident.


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.

I just started Mister Owita's Guide to Gardening by Carol Wall; a memoir about an unlikely friendship between a middle aged woman who is a cancer survivor, and her Kenyan gardener. I won a free advance readers copy of this book from Library Thing.

Currently reading The Spark Solution. I love reading about the success folks have had and what they really found that works and doesn't work......

Today is my 4th month anniversary here on Spark People and I have lost 55 pounds! I am half way to goal so I will just keep doing what I am doing and persevere. This community is awesome!

"Freedom of the Will," by Jonathan Edwards (ca 1751). Read old books, they're better.

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy�4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).

A Wilder Rose by Susan Witting Albert.

It's a novel based on the true story of the lives of Rose Wilder Lane, and her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder; about their relationship, and evidence that Rose may have coauthored the "Little House" books, or possibly even written them entirely herself under her mother's name.

I've got two books going right now;

What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank: A Fantasy Lover's Food Guide by Krista D.Bell, it's a book written as a guide for authors of fantasy and historical fiction, I'm just a reader, not a writer, but it's fascinating look into what people ate in Medieval times, and how food was stored and prepared.

I am also reading Calm My Anxious Heart Heart by Linda Dillow, as a part of a group read in a metastatic breast cancer support group I belong to online, it's about how to deal with fear and worry.

The Promise of an Angel by Ruth Reid; it's a story set in an Amish community, in Mecosta County, Michigan, which is where I live! ( I mean, it's the same county I live in, but I don't live with the Amish, lol) .It's the first time I have read fiction that is set so "close to home."

The author attended school here years ago, Ferris State University here in Big Rapids.

Slow Getting Up by Nate Jackson. NFL football as seen from the point of view of a barely-on-the-team kind of guy (no offense, Nate). A little rough around the edges as you would expect, but interesting perspective on the precarious careers of these men (and by extension other elite atheletes) who seem to be living their dreams.
