My blog friend Diane from That’s What I’m Here For asked if I was interested in doing a book review. I was familiar with the author and decided to jump in.
There were some very touching stories and others that had me laughing out loud. Jeanette and her husband had moved from California to a small Mid Western town to pastor a church. One evening it snowed in their little town. Jeanette hard a noise and ran to the window. She saw a car spinning out of control. She called for her husband. She screamed out to God to help the poor people in the car, fearful that they would suddenly spin out onto another road and be killed. The car continued spinning when her husband realized –maybe they were doing this for sport and having fun. Another car not too far away was doing the same thing. After a little bit both cars took off. The next day at work Jeanette talked with a co-worker about what had happened and discovered that it was indeed a sport. Those kids were just DOING DONUTS.
