Pearl Girls

One of the coolest things about the writing life is meeting amazing folks who use words to touch hearts.

One of those folks is a familiar name and face with Christian Women Online, Book Buzz book reviewer, Laurel Wreath.

She had a huge announcement on her website recently. Check our her good news here.

I'm going to spill a little here because I'm thrilled for her and want to help her spread the word about a new devotional called Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit, Experiencing Grace.

Doesn't that sound amazing?!

Here's more...

Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit, Experiencing Grace $9.55

100% of this book proceedes go to charity. So no guilt in spending some hard-earned book money on this treasure.

After experiencing the death of both parents, Margaret McSweeney recognized the importance of community like never before. Through these difficult times in life, she learned how God uses gritty circumstances to conform us to the stunning image of Christ.

McSweeney also realized that she was not at all alone. It is for this reason that she decided to compile essays into an inspiring book: Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit Experiencing Grace.

Through this collection, readers will be encouraged by the heartfelt writings that deal with loss and hardship in a real and honest way. Respected authors such as Robin Jones Gunn , Melody Carlson, Debbie Macomber, Shaunti Feldhahn and others help remind every woman that they are not alone and that no circumstance is beyond the grace of God.

McSweeney uses the metaphor of a pearl in order to better describe the situations that ail us all. When an oyster takes in a piece of sand in order to create its coveted masterpiece, it is initially painful to the soft flesh of the creature. But after the pain, appears a clean, white symbol of simplicity, purity, and endurance that any woman would be proud to wear. McSweeney believes that each woman is a pearl and together, form a necklace of great worth. In this book, readers will discover community and encouragement: women are alone in neither their pain nor victories in life.

Sounds like a perfect Easter gift for yourself or a special friend or family member.

Be sure to check out Laurel's blog too: I hear she has an interesting interview posted there right now. ;-)

I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is
