  1. Marilyn, I love to read your blog! You have a gifted mind and from that words flow, both spoken and written, reflecting the breadth and depth of your interests. You have a passionate heart and desire to motivate others to think and act to change our world and our own hearts. Your own stories are highlights, but there is the ability to help us enter other stories as well. With that as a reason I would vote for “Dull women have immaculate coffee tables”. :) You quickly draw us in to your world of entering other worlds. I love to be in your living room with your big coffee table Congratulations!!


  2. Crazy busy week coming, but I’ll see what I can do. Meanwhile, for potential winners considering a book choice, I very highly recommend your mom’s *Jars of Clay*. It was a treat for me to put in contexta lot of the disparate pieces I knew about some of my ‘missionary relatives’ (one thing I already knew long ago… was that we loved it when they showed up… and they never were able to do so enough!)

    Actually, I also had a chance to share the book with a friend at the end of a furlough and headed back to South Sudan — her oldest daughter was headed off to boarding school there for the first time and she was wrestling through it. Glad to report the book was a great help to her.


    1. Very cool to hear your recommendation of Jars of Clay. Especially as it comes from someone who wasn’t in Pakistan with us so an outside perspective. And also glad that you shared it. I have been rereading slowly and am still amazed by some of the stories. Thank you for this wonderful encouragement. I’m hoping my mom reads this comment!
