The Buzz About Coach Buzz Williams

If your team has been knocked out or you're looking for a team to root for in the NCAA tournament (March Madness!), how about Marquette University from Milwaukee, Wisconsin?  We were surprised when Marquette Coach Buzz Williams called the request line to talk the day after his team's big 3rd round win vs. Syracuse moving them into the Sweet Sixteen!  Marquette takes on one of the top teams in the country - North Carolina - on Friday night.

Buzz loves God and enjoys listening to K-LOVE with his kids.  He also seemed to get a kick out of our March Madness conversations.  To hear his call, click here. 

He also has some impressive "dance moves" ...

Want to read this book with me?

Hey - I've started reading Heaven is For Real.

I've had a copy for a few weeks (because we get lots of books sent to us).  I love the color and the picture of Colton on the cover, so it had caught my attention.  I watched it climb the NYTimes Bestsellers List.  I heard about lots of interviews and articles about this book.

But until a dear friend called who had just finished Heaven is for Real and said "Lisa, you HAVE to read it.  There is one chapter that was written just for us" - I hadn't picked it up.

So I'm reading it, as I find the time.  I don't know about you, but between working full-time and being a mom of a 2 & 4 year old - reading is a luxury.

Hey, you want to read it, too?  So we could talk about it here?  I always enjoy doing things in community better than all alone.  You can click on the book below for a link to more info about the story.

Hugs,

Lisa
