A new book you must get!

Beth Moore's new book just came out this week.

So Long Insecurity, You've been a bad friend to us.
Say Amen, Sister. If you are female and breathing you have struggled with insecurity. Even if we don't want to admit it, we all know it's true. . . our insecurity makes us not want to admit we are insecure! Anyway, Emmy and I treked down to the Atlanta area today to get our new books signed! Woo-hoo.

My week has been heavy, I mean heavy. I am tired and needed a quick refreshing day with a good friend. You know the kind of day when you can lay it all out there and they support you. It just feels good. Emmy was that for me today, such an awesome listening ear she has.

We headed south very early in the wind and rain this morning. We arrived and were surprised to find there was not a very long line to see Beth. I love, love my new Insecurity book, I just had to get a few for some friends. I can't wait to dive in and deal with my "issues".

It was a joy to see Beth, meet new friends in line that share a mutual friend with me, eat a cozy lunch with a friend, share my heart, hear a friend's heart, and have a break from the little ones. (thanks J for letting me do that)

Here's a few of our photo ops!

We are secure enough to show off our new books!

I love this woman. I have read her books, listened to her teach, watched her video lessons, and have seen her transparency that God has used. She has a gift to allow to used by God to touch lives daily. What I see in her is the Lord. So thankful she has put herself out there and is willing to be used of the Lord.

Now suck it up, get secure and buy this book! I promise you will love it, chapter one has been awesome!

Awe... I love you my Siesta! You are a gift to me! : )

"What would be an adequate thanksgiving to offer God for all the JOY we experience before Him because of you, Wendy!?!" 1 Thessalonians 3:9 (MSG)

So fun... as always! Emmy : )

Joni said...

So touched by your generous gift. And she spelled my name right.

But next time, maybe she could pen: To My BFF Joni.....

You're the best!

Wendy - I had a blast yesterday too at Beth's book signing in Peachtree City - except there were a gazillion women at the Books a Million!

However, I was not deterred by that! I stayed close by and was able to laugh and visit with all the ladies there, and then had the best visit with Beth! I surprised her and it was so much fun. I love her assistant Michelle so much. She does an awesome job taking care of Bethie.

I love your friend Joni, but please tell Joni that Beth cannot sign her book as BFF because she signed mine that way...truly.

I love y'all and miss you so much!

Y'all look so SECURE standing there together with your SO LONG INSECURITY books! I just got mine in the mail yesterday and can't wait to plunge in. But, I also received 66 Love Letters by Dr. Larry Crabb and it is FOR ME right now. I'm swimmin' in God's Word and it is my delight.
Love you!

My SS sent me the book! Is it you? I can't wait to dig into it.
Glad you had a day to you. And, glad you had a safe place to get re-energized. Our dear friends don't know how much they mean to us with the life we live. God has blessed us with these friendships.

Jan and Joni,
I am sure Beth can share you two. Y'all are hysterical. Beth is really my BFF, see how she was standing to greet me when I came to the table?

I love my new book, so much to take in. I love how she writes like she is talking to me in a regular conversation . I think that's a gift to be able to write that way.

Mom of Eleven said...

That sounds like an incredible book, I will have to look for it!

Mom of Eleven said...

No, I am not your secret sister, remember I already was last time. . mmm who could it be? Hope you love your book!

Wendy----you have no idea how much this book has already spoken to me!! It was no accident that you gave me this early birthday gift!! She should have written: For Mandy--the girl who thought she had this insecurity thing beat!!

Kelly S. said...

These pictures are great!! I agree...she was standing to greet you :) Michelle is precious in the background protecting our Siesta Mama. I have my copy too...can't wait to start it!

Gretchen said...

Is Beth saying, "Wendy" in your picture? I can tell ya'll are bff's! :) We need a copy for all our secret sisters dont you think?

I think that is just too cool that you and Emmy were able to get your book signed and that you got to hug Beth's neck.
I ordered the book a while back and still haven't gotten it in the mail yet.
Beth means so much to me too. I have been going to her conferences for about 8 years and have done all of her studies. She's awesome!
Thanks for sharing the adorable pictures. Glad you had such a fun day!
Love from Oklahoma!

Y'all are hysterical! That day looks like so much FUN! Oh, you ladies are such a fun blessing. I know she loved seeing y'all again just as much as y'all loved seeing her!
