Well now I’ve started something I don’t want to quit.
Like eating Cadbury Creme Eggs. (Easter come quickly.)
I just love getting to tell y’all about books and two more great books release today that I think you should know about (and And AND stick around to the end for giveaways!).

Hope Runs by Claire Diaz-Ortiz and Samuel Ikua Gachagua
Two years ago, I sat on my back porch and cried, having just finished THIS INTERVIEW with Sammy. He’s an incredible young man. I believe in that kid.
I interviewed Claire for What’s Your Mark?, a book I wrote with Jeremy Cowart and we immediately hit it off. I respect her so much, her work ethic and her investment in Sammy.
And this book, written by both of them, tells the story of how they became a family. It will make you tear up, people. It is beautifully written and a story like nothing else I’ve ever read. I think this would be an incredible graduation gift for guys or girls and a sweet Mother’s Day gift.

The Illusion of More by Harris III
People are often asking me for books that a whole youth group can use- that boys will like and girls will like and leaders will like. This one from Harris III, master illusionist, is that exactly. I’ve gotten to look through it and I kept saying, “this is SO needed! This is SO good!” And then he pulled a rabbit out of my hat and I was like “I DON’T EVEN OWN A HAT.”
(Nah. That’s a dumb joke. Sorry.)
(But I’m giggling soooo….)
The theme is perfect for any of us- what lies do you believe? Is the grass always greener on the other side?
Here’s a video to tell you more about the book. (Click over if you can’t see it, subscribers. It’s gooooooood.)
Great, huh? I know. You’re gonna love it.
