Book Club

Melissa, my sister, was in a book club with some women in her ward. As she talked about the books they were reading, I told her I was very jealous. She invited me to be in club with her. I have now been in her book club for three meetings and have enjoyed it. It is great to see Melissa interact with people in her ward because she is hilarious! I love spending time with her especially when Jeremy and Ian are willing to take care of our babes.

This last month we read Hallelujah--The Story of the Coming Forth of Handel's Messiah by J. Scott Featherstone. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book. It is historical fiction and gave me an inside view of who Handel was and how it came to be that he wrote Messiah. It was a bit slow at first but I thoroughly enjoyed this read especially during the Christmas season. I did not expect to have a book help me to come closer to God. I would highly recommend it.

I don't think a blog is complete without a picture so here is Niev's eyelashes. Aren't they the most gorgeous thing you have ever seen! We love our baby girl.
