Yes, I’m back from Africa. And I’m alive! (I guess you figured that unless you thought I’m an imposter of me). I have lots of stories to tell you about Africa so please check back in a few days. But for today, since it’s time for our featured CSFF blogtour, I’ll add a short blurb in hopes that good Christian literature will grab more attention everywhere.

This month, the CSFF is featuring Karen Hancock’s Return of the Guardian-King :

Although I have not read this book—hey, who can read when they’re crying so much?! (You should see those street children in Africa and see if you cry)—I know my fellow bloggers have, and they’ve written wonderful reviews so please visit some of their blogs:

I will be back soon with more news on my recent trip. Let’s just say that God was very present. I do thank you for your prayers.



Rebecca said...

Thanks for the intro!! When your eyes dry out, pick it up. But keep the tissues handy. ;-)

Janey DeMeo said...

Thanks Becky. But the big question is: Will my eyes ever dry out? Probably not...

Becky said...

Well, that previous comment was from Rebecca Grabil, Janey.

I know what you mean about the eyes not drying out. Once you see the way others live, it changes you, changes your worldview.

But Karen Hancock's books do that too, is a reader lets them.

Glad you're back safely, Janey.

Welcome home, Janey! May God help you grieve well and also give you great joy. I think sharing in His suffering by the things you do is one of the deepest gifts of friendship one can give to the Lord.

BTW,I'm trying to figure out why you couldn't get into the comments on my blog. It's set up just like yours where you just click on the comments--unless you were on my website, not my blog. I have both. This link will take you to my blog, which is GraceReign. My website is

I finally commented on your blog, Paula.
