Today I'd like to point you to 4 books that have been published by Pearsons in the last few years. Most are short, easy reads. One is free, and the others are relatively inexpensive.
Three are available on Amazon, and one can be easily downloaded onto your computer.
I'll start with the one that has been most recently published.
PROVERBS: Shut Your Mouth and Open It has been compiled by our son Matt Pearson who is the Campus and Teaching Pastor of The Church at West Franklin in Franklin, Tennessee. You can access it by going to his website -- https://mattpearsononline.com/ -- and scrolling down. Just enter your name and email address, and a link will come to your inbox. It's free. This eBook can be used for group study or as a 21-day devotional guide. Matt digs out the Proverbs dealing with speech to challenge his readers.
MAKING ROOM FOR JESUS: Getting Rid of Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, and Physical Clutter was written by our daughter Laura Pearson Baggett. You can find it on Amazon for $5.99 as a paperback, $1.49 on Kindle or for free using the Kindle app. In the introduction, Laura explains, "I applied the KonMari method of decluttering from The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and it really was transformational. But I didn’t just learn about clutter busting my physical space. The Lord used the process to declutter my mind and my soul. He changed my mindset just as much, if not more, than my surroundings."
WHAT A WAY TO MAKE A LIVING: Tales of a Small Town Veterinarian was written by my Silver Fox, Dr. Steve Pearson. It is a collection of memories from my husband's days owning Pearson Animal Hospital in Hartselle, Alabama. Animal lovers or anyone considering becoming a veterinarian will enjoy it. Steve also shares how God protected and guided him through those years. On Amazon, it is $12.99 for paperback or $7.99 on Kindle.
TELLING IT ON THE MOUNTAIN: 52 Days in the Life of an Improbable Missionary by ME! This book consists of excerpts taken from my journals during the four years we lived in Ecuador. I believe it could also be used for daily devotional purposes. My hope is that it will enhance and deepen the prayers we pray on behalf of missionaries around the world. It is $7.99 for a paperback copy or $4.99 on Kindle.
Our daughter, Julie Pearson Rodgers, who recently had her 10th child has done a lot of work on a book she has in her heart about "making room for children." She has a very unique philosophy and a perspective as a mother of many that I believe will be insightful and helpful to moms everywhere. I'll be sure to let you know when she gets it completed, but with 3 in diapers right now, it might be a while longer. :) She recently shared her notes with me. It's going to be good.
Steve and I are compiling a book about our annual Cousins Camp, and I have another one on the drawing board that I'm not quite ready to reveal just yet. I promise. You will be among the first to know when these books are published.
In general, suffice it to say that we Pearsons love to write and have a lot to say -- some of which MAY be worth reading. :)
My Monday posts are generally focused on travel, but since the world is still crippled with coronavirus fears and restrictions, I thought maybe some suggestions for reading material might be helpful. The weather is predicted to be cold this week. Grab a warm blanket and some hot chocolate or coffee while you curl up with a good book.
