Different Drummer

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions,perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." ~Henry David Thoreau

Heaven is Here by Stephanie Nielsen

We met at Sandy's home in October and had a fun discussion about the book, "Heaven is Here," by Stephanie Nielson.  We laughed about different aspects of motherhood that are not always easy to love. We admired Stephanie for so many things: her courage, faith, honesty and openness, her delightful sense of humor.  We all have trials to face, but this wonderful book about Stephanie and her family's journey can help us face those trials with faith, hope and gratitude.

Stephanie's blog is at NieNie Dialogues
For dessert, we had Stephanie's Peach 'n Berry Cobbler - and it is yummy! Her recipe/cooking blog can be found at: Cuisine Nie Blog
