coloring As adults we can live very hectic and stressful lives. Its time to calm down and de-stress. What a better way than to color yourself calm. We will have adult coloring pages, some drinks, and snacks. Think of it like a great book group, but we color instead of discuss books. Okay we can discuss books too, but only if you want. Event registration is preferred but not required.

The Baxters are back in this next installment of the Firstborn Series. So is Katy and Dayne who are 2 of my favorite characters. There is always so much heart in her books along with joy and sorrow,pain and happiness and always salvation. If you have a heart, it will in turn break and mend as well as pound and melt.

This is the 2nd book in her newest series Angels Walking. In this story Mary Catherine wants to live a very different life than she raised in. She comes from a privileged background and though her parents mean well this life is not what she wants for herself. She has people in her life that provide all the richness she could wish for including baseball player Marcus Dillinger. Life with Marcus offers her new challenges but unfortunately they are about to become life altering. It's very hard to put a Karen Kingbury novel down and with this one the difficulty is more so. Can't wait till the next one.  Mattoon SHARECatalog

If you have ever studied for a test yet still performed poorly this is a book for you. It explains why we go to familiar study techniques even though it is not helping our studying or understanding. It explains to avoid using readi as a primary strategy for studying, yet the way many have always studied.  Mattoon SHARECatalog
