The Pink Heart Society: Thursday Talktime - Teaching

The Pink Heart Society: Thursday Talktime - Teaching: "Kate Walker talks about how she ended up acquiring a reputation for something that she really thought was the last thing she ever wanted to ..."

Pay Up!

I won Kaily Hart's Blog giveaway! It was her latest release ebook "Pay Up' which is available from http://www.ellorascave.com/.

I enjoyed reading this book as it was hot, spicy and naughty!

But the most enjoyable point for me was the hero(male) POV. It was very natural. And enjoyable. You can't help but fall for this guy...he is so nice!

Thanks Kaily....I really enjoyed reading Pay Up!

And in other news...

Kate Walker also known as Queen Kate, for she is a fabulous lady, and a Queen of romance, apparently knows about my country and how it is near impossible to get new release HM&B romances and other books here.

Some shops carry HM&B novels but not all the lines. So Queen Kate is shipping over a box full of novels/books for me to donate to the local library.

The local library has dedicated a pathethic three small shelves to HM&B, now I'll see it changed!

 And she is also sending Kate Walker's 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance to be donated to our university. Please visit her website
 http://www.kate-walker.com/ for more information on this fab book for aspiring writers!

Hurray for Queen Kate!

Watch this spot for photos of the donation to come!

Another Amazing Children!

Children in Church 

  
A little boy was attending his first wedding.
After the service, his cousin asked him, 
"How many women can a man marry?"
"Sixteen," the boy responded.   
His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly.
"How do you know that?"
"Easy," the little boy said.
"All you have to do is add it up, like the pastor said, 
4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer." 



After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, 
"Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I grow up." 
"That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?"
"Well," said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, 
And I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen." 


A 6-year-old was overheard reciting the Lord's Prayer at a church service, 
"And forgive us our trash passes, as we forgive those who passed trash against us." 

A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon.
"How do you know what to say?" he asked.
"Why, God tells me."
"Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?" 

A little girl became restless as the preacher's sermon dragged on and on.
Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered, 
"Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?" 


Ms.  Terri asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories.
 
She was puzzled by Kyle's picture, which showed four people on an airplane, 
So she asked him which story it was meant to represent.
"The Flight to Egypt ," was his reply.
Pointing at each figure, Ms.  Terri said, 
"That must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus.   
But who's the fourth person?"
"Oh, that's Pontius - the pilot!" 

The Sunday School Teacher asks, 
"Now, Johnny, tell me frankly do you say prayers before eating?" 
"No ma'am," little Johnny replies, I don't have to. 
 My mom is a good cook." 




This is the best one. 



A little girl was sitting on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story.
From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. 
She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again.
Finally she spoke up, "Grandpa, did God make you?"
"Yes, sweetheart," he answered, "God made me a long time ago."
"Oh," she paused, "Grandpa, did God make me too?"
"Yes, indeed, honey," he said, "God made you just a little while ago."
Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, 
"God's getting better at it, isn't he ?" 


Work Hard, Do Your Best, Keep Your Word, 
Never Get Too Big For Your Britches, 
Trust In God and Never Forget a Friend
