What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

    Aunt Harri is a collection of stories about an elderly woman that Ray Wiseman, a retired writer, originally wrote as a newspaper column. Aunt Harri deals with such aging issues as giving up a driver’s licence and choosing a retirement home with humour, faith and insight. Wiseman delights the reader with his irony and humour.

  • A Difficult Passage on April 04, 2012
    (no rating)
    This is a true story of life on the Canadian prairies from the eyes of a child growing up in the 1930s and 40s. The story gives us a dramatic hint of life on the prairies during the depression that included extreme poverty and extreme weather. Wiseman’s characteristic humour and a splash of hope make this an inspirational read.
  • The Christian Olympics on Nov. 17, 2012

    In The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns, S.E. Gregg compares the Christian race to the Olympic Games. As a former personal trainer, I had an increased interest in this book. Gregg makes connections between the athletes competing in the Olympics with our Christian walk and the importance of competing for the prize. As a believer that prayer is to the spirit what exercise is to the body, I resonated with Gregg’s way of helping Christians see themselves as players in the Ultimate Olympic game. Gregg teaches spiritual lessons and offers practical advice in a challenging way with chapters such as The Training and Discipline, The Workout and The Closing and Rewards Ceremonies. An interesting read!
