What was I thinking when I decided to pick up and read “Finding Your Own North Star” by Martha Beck? Ya, like I was going to zip through that book in a month and fix all the problems of the last 42 years! Now that’s rich! So lets just say it’s a read in progress! I am really loving it and have to say! Get it! Don’t rush it! Do the work and call me in the morning! As I continue to read this fabulous book and recommend it to as many people as I can, I want to introduce to you to my book for September.
Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin
You know they made this novel into a T.V series starring Kerstin Chenoweth but Disney, after only one successful season cancelled it. I knew right then it was the story for me! Apparently it was too racy for Disney. Which I find hilarious! Have you ever seen the leaves swirl in Aladdin as they swirl out the word “Sex” or how about the cover of “The Little Mermaid” with the castles in the shape of erect penises. Of course they got caught so they had to reissue the cover on the video cassette.
How dare we use the word Christian and Bitches in the same sentence. The people at Disney clearly haven’t spent any quantity of time in a evangelical setting. I can say this with great confidence “Bitch Convention” Yes it’s true they have a special day when you can bring in your “Bitch” for a blessing! You know I think they should include “Pussy’s” for equal opportunity blessing!!
The GCBs of Hillside Park Presbyterian are praying for Amanda Vaughn–or so they claim. Will their evil gossip destroy her reputation, or will she show them exactly how to turn the other cheek
Amanda Vaughn needs some heaven-sent help. She’s divorced her cheating husband and fled, along with her two teenagers, back to her hometown, Hillside Park, a Dallas suburb so upper-class that the question isn’t where to bank, but whose family owns the bank. Amanda is thrilled to be back in Texas—after twelve years in Southern California, she’s ready to leave behind her shallow, Godless life and return to the welcoming Christian world where she grow up. Or at least that’s the plan . . .
But when she arrives, she’s met with some Texas-sized trouble. Her old friends, neighbors, and fellow church members treat Amanda like a long-lost friend . . . until her back is turned. Then the claws come out. Amanda finds herself trapped in a world of salacious rumors, secret affairs, and Bible-study sessions gone terribly wrong. And what’s even more puzzling is that a secret admirer is sending Amanda lavish gifts. Why, she wonders, would anyone send a Mercedes when a simple dinner invitation would do?
Packed with schemes, drama, and a Southern setting more fun than a barbecue at Southfork, Good Christian Bitches has humor, sass, and an unforgettable cast of characters.

Now I don’t know about you but if your “Alter” starts and ends with your ego then this is the book for you!!!
