Oh friends.

So we are on week two of the (in)courage Bloom Book Club. It has already been such a fun experience, connecting with HUNDREDS of readers around the world as they discuss chapters from Let’s All Be Brave.

It feels weird, honestly. But a good weird- a “how in the world did God pick this life for me” weird. It’s weird when you write about personal things like hearing God and moving to new cities and boys and such. It’s a double level of weird when you see a whole slew of people talking about said personal things.

So. Those are my current emotions about the Bloom Book Club. You’re welcome.

Some items I want to make sure you know:

Even if you’ve already read the book, you can totally jump in and watch the videos and join the discussion with us!

If you haven’t read the book, you can totally jump in and watch the videos and join the discussion with us! (And the e-book is only $4 if you wanna grab it and catch up with us!)

If you are reading the book, you can totally jump in and watch the videos and join the discussion with us!

(See what I did there? ALL OF YOU CAN PLAY ALONG NO MATTER WHAT!)

Today’s focus and video are on the two chapters that really hold my heart- Nashville and Edinburgh. You can read the comments in the comment section below the post and maybe, just maybe, you will get teary like I did hearing women discuss the voice of God and brave steps they want to take in their life.

Here are all the details and the schedule of reading so you can keep up with us.

Hope you’ll join us. The videos and conversation just keep getting better and better!!

31 Books: Moral Revolution (Book #20)

moralTitle: Moral Revolution

. . . . .

Author:

Kris Vallotton

(You can read more about him on his website and follow him on Twitter and Facebook!)

. . . . .

What the book is about:

Moral Revolution seeks to inspire a culture of love, honor and respect with people who walk in purity, passion and power. This intimate and honest book addresses the root causes of purity issues rather than merely communicating to the masses to “abstain from having sex.” It will call you to a higher standard of living, imparting value for your heart and encouraging you to walk in all God has created you to be. Many who have given in to the power of peer pressure and the lure of distorted cultural values will find hope and courage to start over again.

Moral Revolution is written for radical and passionate people who dream of being catalysts to a different kind of sexual revolution–one that transforms the way the world views sexuality, defines the unborn and embraces the family. Join the Moral Revolution!

. . . . .

Why I like it:

If you are looking for a book to discuss sexual purity with a young woman in your life, this is the one I have found most helpful in my time doing college ministry. It is not feel good or easy or tip-toe-y; it is straight forward and almost brutal at times. I’ve read the whole thing and I would say the most impactful stuff is in the first half, but the whole thing is worth the read. Caution: this isn’t a “dating” book that I would read with 13 year olds (we’ve got one of those coming, just you wait). This is for a more mature young woman who will benefit from a head-on collision with truth about sexual purity.

31 Books: Anne of Green Gables (Book #19)

anneTitle: Anne of Green Gables

. . . . .

Author:

L.M. Montgomery

. . . . .

What the book is about:

Anne of Green Gables is a bestselling 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. Written as fiction for readers of all ages, the literary classic has been considered a children’s novel since the mid-twentieth century. It recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, a young orphan girl mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who have a farm on Prince Edward Island and who had intended to adopt a boy to help them. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way with the Cuthberts, in school and within the town.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

Sighhhhh. Right? Of all the covers of this book that are available, I had to pick this one. I just love to see her face and her braids and her hat and Matthew and Marilla in the background and whahhhhhh I could just get teary talking about this book. Yes, the movies are so good, but the book? You cannot put it down. You don’t need me to tell you why every girl needs to read this. You already know. :)
