It’s Summer Reading Time! Load Up On Great Books

Five Free books for Summer Reading with the purchase of Hungry for God, Starving for Time Summer Book Promo. Check it out!

I get more reading done on vacation than any other time.

I’ve discovered some of my favorite authors while reading on the beach in summer or next to a fire in winter.

I’m sharing some of my favorites over the next three months, starting with this one:

Hungry for God, Starving for Time by Lori Hatcher

Let me paint the perfect summer scene.

The sun has risen over the ocean, lake, or grandma’s home — wherever your family likes to vacation in summer.

You’re nestled into a comfy chair with a fresh cup of coffee (it’s never too hot for coffee, especially with a gentle morning breeze), your Bible (best book ever), and a great devotional.

Your day if off to a perfect start.

I did this recently at Middleton Place Inn on the Ashely River outside of Charelston, SC. I’m still floating from this peaceful memory.

One of my favorite devotionals is Hungry for God, Starving for Time by Lori Hatcher.

I’m on about my 10th copy now. I’ve given most of them as gifts, but my personal, author-signed copy went rogue, as much-loved books tend to do because I carry them around too much.

I’m not complaining though, because with this latest copy, I also got five free Kindle books, and I’m a huge Kindle fan. (With my Kindle, I’m never bored in a waiting room or long line. I’m always deep into a good book.)

I’m now loaded up for my Summer Reading.

Look at what I got with my latest copy of Hungry for God, Starving for Time:

• Praying for the Prodigal, a non-fiction book by Andrea Merrell

• Running from a Crazy Man (and Other Adventures Traveling with Jesus), a devotional by Lori Roeleveld

 Fear is Louder than Words, a novel by Linda Glaz

 Come Empty, Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love, a non-fiction book by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith

 Chasing the Butterfly, a novel by Jayme Mansfield

I’ve already read Praying for the Prodigal and Running from a Crazy Man. I loved both of these books. Excellent!

I can’t wait to dive into the other three. I’ve got a beach trip coming up soon.

If you want to take advantage of this great offer, too, I’ll let Lori explain how to get your own copy of Hungry for God, Starving for Time, plus the 5 free books.

Speaking of working hard and praying hard . . . I welcome to my blog today my friend, author and editor Lori Hatcher. Lori’s the author of one of my favorite devotionals Hungry for God . . . Starving for Time, but more importantly, she’s epitomizes the person whom God favors.


Work Hard or Pray Hard?


Jackie lives a charmed life. Opportunities fall into her lap, she wakes up with creative thoughts, and she always seems to be in the right place at the right time.

Seth is the same way. When he didn’t have money for college, an anonymous donor paid his way. When everyone else was still living with their parents and rolling burritos at Moe’s, he was starting an entry-level position in the field of his choice. Like a modern-day Midas, everything he touches goes viral.

Others, however, sing the chorus of the old Hee Haw song: “If I didn’t have no bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me.” [Read more…]
