I had set the first meeting to be at Wildflower Bread Company. And last week sometime I got an E-mail from them thanking me for choosing to host my upcoming book club at their place. They monitor all the various social networking sites & had come across my blog post. They wished me luck with the book club and said they would like to provide me with a complimentary dessert tray to kick things off. Wow! I was so impressed. How nice of them. I E-mailed them back thanking them in advance. And tonight I introduced myself to the manager when I got there, and she had a tray all ready for me. And It was yummy! I highly recommend The Wildflower Bread Company to any one hosting a meeting or gathering. And Thank you so much Wildflower, we will definitely be back!
I had a contest here on the Blog to help name the Book Club. And at the Super Bowl Party I was at last night I had some Family & Friends look them over & vote for the name they liked the best. And I thought it was interesting that not knowing that this is a Life Group out of LifeChurch, the name that got the most votes, had Life in it. The winning name, and the Name of the Book Club is "Life on The Same Page" And the person who submitted it was Michele. Michele, contact me and I will get you your prize! Thanks to everyone who entered, and came up with some really creative names, both here and on Facebook. And Paige, your Cover to Cover came in second place!
The first book that we will be reading is The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. "The tale of one Motherless daughter's discovery of what family really means-and of the strange and wondrous places we find Love." "A remarkable novel about divine female power, a story that women will share and pass on to their daughters for years to come." And you know me, I'm all about Girl Power! :) I've been wanting to read this book since I saw it some time ago on Oprah. It was made into a movie as well. And I will be watching it too! And Michele, as the winner of our contest, I have a copy of it for you. Congratulations!
Come and live Life On The Same Page with some great women. And Happy Reading!
