A Picture of the book, "A Place to Land" by Kate Motaung surrounded by a few of my favorite things like my Inspire Bible and the troll that my daughter bought me and some other books.

Good Read? “A Place to Land” by Kate Motaung

Hey, sweet friends! Although I have had this book for a few years, unfortunately, it got lost in the piles of books that I have collected and never started. As a result, when I came across it, I was pretty excited. Does that sound familiar? The front cover has the description “a story of longing & belonging” which resonated with me today just like it did the day I bought it. Have you already read “A Place to Land?”

To begin with, I don’t know how long it will take me to read it. I may read a chapter a day or if it is good, I may just finish the whole book in one or two sittings. When that happens, you know it is a good book. However, I am trying to slow down and be more intentional in absorbing and reflecting on what I am reading. Additionally, if you would like to join me, you can grab your copy of the book here.

After picking out the book that I wanted to start with, “A Place to Land,” I decided to look up the author, Kate Motaung. To my absolute delight, she turned out to be the lady that hosts, Five Minute Friday. Many years ago, I participated in Five Minute Friday. Also, I am old enough to remember when she took over hosting that writing community. If you have any interest in being a Christian writer, you should check it out!

As I flipped through the beginning of my book, I realized I have an autographed copy! And what an emotional lift that was. Not only did she autograph the book, below her signature, she jotted down Colossians 3:2. I love this verse, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Remember, sweet friends, this world is NOT our home.

If you don’t know me, you can find out more about me here. I love to read, and I love book clubs and Bible studies. Unfortunately, the ones that I used to go to are quite a distance from home, so I decided to start my own here online. Hope you will join me!
