Why no new books have been reviewed

I know that some are wondering why no new reviews have been posted. The biggest reason is that on August 17, 2009, my Eternal Companion died of sudden cardiac arrest. It was quick and not part of my plan. However, I do know that he had finished his mission in this life, and is helping to prepare for the Savior's second coming. Needless to say that I haven't been ready much, except for his journals.
I thank all who have sent emails, cards, letters, thoughts, and prayers my way. Everything and everyone has been so thoughtful. My girls and I are doing ok, even though it is hard on them and me to go along without Randy, but with the support of all our friends and family, we will make it. We know that we will be with him again, and that Christ is there for us.
Hopefully it will be soon when there will be a new review up.
Right now I'm reading "Guide Me To Eternity." A book that I first read to Randy, several years ago, while we were traveling somewhere. I never realized that I would be in a similar position as the author of this terrific book.

Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. Your faith is an inspiration.

Thanks so much, Heather. Without the faith I couldn't make it through this. Friends like you help also.

Lisa,

Your faith and humility has inspired me. Even though I don't know you that well, I heard your news on the eve of my 39th wedding anniversary, and it just made me so sad. May the "peace that passeth understanding" be with you now and in the days ahead.

Lisa,

I had no idea your husband had passed away! I'm so very sorry. I know it isn't much, but if you'd like, I'd love to send you a copy of Illuminations of the Heart for free. I have an extra one, it wouldn't be a problem at all. Email me at jdipastena@yahoo.com with your mailing address if you read this comment.
