Book review: Made Like Martha By Lisa-JO Baker

Book review:  Made Like Martha By Lisa-JO Baker 

I really like this Book It mad me really think about how to stop in my busy life and spend more time with God.
This is a great Christian Book and Very Inspirational. 
The Author did a wonderful Job teaching us about Martha in the bible.
I would recommend this Book to anyone and it would be a great bible study book to us in a bible study group at church.
What I learned from this book is to spend more time with God and stop making my life so busy the I push God aside.
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!" "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried a…

Proposed Blog Post from Terri Maue
I’ve been in love with reading and writing all my life.  I have never gotten over the magic that happens when I decode little black marks on a piece of paper and am transported to another world.  I started writing when I was six or seven, inflicting my ‘poems’ on my parents and grandparents, who dutifully applauded and encouraged me.  
I write mysteries.  I’m sure I got my fascination with the genre from my dad, who loved Ellery Queen and Sherlock Holmes and others.  Mysteries are still my favorite genre, although I also enjoy historical fiction, the occasional biography, and poetry.  
I wanted to write a book when I was a teenager.  I wrote a few stories in my 20s and 30s, but parenthood and the need to make a living absorbed most of my time and energy.  In my late 40s, I decided to go to graduate school and study writing.  I hold a doctorate now, in English with a specialty in creative writing.  I retired from teac…

Q1. Tell me about your self, what are your favorite books to read?
A. I'm a mother, and a grandmother, and administrative assistant in a local non-profit.
I'm the president of the Society of Southwestern Authors and I try to keep busy
with my writing and reading.
I like to read mystery and suspense. Just finished an Olivia Jaymes  book that was 
exciting and I need to get the rest of the trilogy. I also like cozy mystery especially ones
with paranormal included.

Q2.When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I started writing in 1997. I was reading historical romance at the time and thought
I could write as well as the authors I was reading. That's when I began to plot 
my Clan Hewit Trilogy. I researched for nearly three years before writing so by
the time I got to my laptop the first book almost wrote itself and was published
by a small press in Maryland in 2003. The other two books came a bit slower and 
weren't publis…

          A.   My name’s Robert Hazelton and I’ve been working as an artist in various capacities for the past 20 years. I started as a musician for the touring band Abney Park then dove into digital art. My favorite types of novels are dramatic literature, urban fantasy, horror, and science fiction.




Q2.when did you decide you where going to write a book?

            A. I wrote my first book when I was still in high school on an electric typewriter. It was three hundred pages long and not at all good. However, that’s when the bug took me to write. After that, I dabbled, mostly in short stories, until I started my first book series Glamour & Shadows.


Q3. How did you come up with name of your books?


          A.   If I don’t come up with a title before I start writing or right at the beginning, I struggle to find a good title. Sometimes, they present themselves immediately from some …
