Last Saturday we had our monthly women's gathering for Christ Fellowship Coral Gables. I had the opportunity to teach on rest. This is not something I've excelled at lately.

Over the past few years I've blogged about my return to the observance of Lent. I neglected it for several years after I left the Catholic Church. But in 2014 I felt a strong desire to observe Lent, on my own terms. I decided that instead of giving up soda or candy (my go-to lenten fasts of my youth), I would give up yelling. This non-traditional approach to Lent actually opened my eyes as I discovered what my true problem was - not yelling, but sin and bitterness built up in my heart due to past hurts.

There are a lot of good points in the book, mainly that we should always hold on to the Truth revealed in God's Word.
