  1. Thank you for this discussion, the thoughts that were brought forth are worthy. It sounds like a book that any woman could profit and learn from. We need to look at ourselves and discover the things that help and encourage us as well as taking the time to analyze our negative habits that stunt our growth. Thank you, again, for me this was a very profitable coverage–even a man would gain insight by reading the valuable points discussed.

    1. Sarah chooses the best books to discuss. I admire her ability to articulate her thoughts in a positive way. How she reads so many books in such a short time frame, given her busy days, is remarkable. Remember when she was reading a calculus text just for fun! YIKES!!

  2. I could listen to you two for hours, really! And…I can’t wait for the discussion of Faust, since I recently finished reading it myself. Rebecca, you always ask Sarah the questions on the tip of my tongue, and her responses are always so generous, sensible and based on experience. The discussion flow is always so honest and heartfelt. Thank you for taking time for books!

    1. Faust!! YIKES! I need to put on my “bravery hat” to take that one on, but you are so encouraging to think I could!!!! Sarah and I really appreciate your support of this initiative. Sarah is a voracious reader. Even when we were reading Harlequin Romances (much to my Father’s chagrin) in our late teens, she would read five books to my one. In our family 2020 challenge, she has zoomed on ahead, followed shortly thereafter by Frances, who has now read most of Lynn Austin’s books. My next project is Virginia Wolf. I started to read “To the Lighthouse” a couple of years ago and then realized that I could not go any further until I knew the background story on Virginia, beyond the few paragraphs that ended with her choice of passing. Writer lives are really the “first story” before they write any others, because what they write comes from their heart and experiences. Will keep in touch on my progress. Thank you for listening in – we feel your presence. Hugs.

  3. This was a very interesting dicussion. I have all twelve habits (to a greater or lesser extent)–but I take after my dad in that regard. He had all twelve as well (ultimately, to a greater extent than I do now).

    1. Your father sounds like he was wonderful mentor. When my father passed a few years ago, I remember thinking that I was grateful that his DNA was embedded in me. To have a father’s support throughout our lives provides the strength to continue after their passing.
