The Crayon Messages Review and Giveaway...


The Crayon Messages:
A Visiting Teaching Adventure
by Christine Thackeray

Thanks to Christine Thackeray
I got to review this great book!
I really enjoyed this uplifting story!


The nurse looked at Cath with raised eyebrows and then laughed out loud with a raspy smokers' laugh. 'Let me get this straight,' she snickered. 'You are new, and the ladies from the Mormon Church, who probably knew exactly what they were doing, strapped you with a totally incoherent visiting teaching companion and a bunch of inactives? That is rich. What did you do to get on their bad side?' She chortled again.

Who would have thought that moving into a new ward could be so hard? Cath Reed is at the end of her rope. Her husband travels constantly, her teenage daughter is going off the deep end, and to top it off, her new ward has made it clear that they wish she'd never moved in. Now Cath has been given the worst visiting teaching assignment in history--and a companion who never wakes up! The stern Relief Society secretary tells Cath not to visit her sisters in person. Cath doesn't feel that neglecting her calling would be right, but is she ready to face the challenges of visiting unfriendly or even hostile women? And how can she visit them if she can't even speak to Gwen, her visiting teaching companion, who stays asleep most of the time?

Between hot fudge, a valuable organ, and a lot of crayons and scratch paper, life will take Cath on a roller coaster she won't ever forget--her sleeping companion is about to awaken her to a whole
new world of possibilities.
