Hugs, Hope and Peanut Butter by Marsha Jordan

Marsha Jordan, self-admittedly, is not a professional writer. She is, however, the creator of the Hugs and Hope Foundation, which serves critically ill children.

While suffering from her own numerous health issues, it is evident from her stories that she is filled with joy. That joy is from knowing all the hardships in this life will someday be gone and that God is with us now, walking this journey (even when it seems like He isn't), and our permanent home and future is with Him in perfect eternity.

"Hugs, Hope and Peanut Butter" is an enjoyable book whether it is read jumping from essay to essay or straight through. Nearly all of Marsha's essays are inspired from her personal experience, with her husband, grandson and dog being the main costars. She also incorporates God's Word into the majority of them.

While her stories are amusing enough to at least bring a smile and a chuckle, some of them brought laughter loud enough to draw my family's attention. Then, of course, I'd have to share it with them. I'd also had to go back and reread some of them to my daughter's friends who visited that week. I think our absolute favourites were the essays that included the advice about hiking in grizzly bear territory and the men who stumble across what seems like a bottomless pit.

All proceeds for "Hugs, Hope and Peanut Butter" are donated to the Hugs and Hope Foundation. To for more information about this organisation or to order the book, please visit:
