Please Pray & Elvis Takes a Back Seat by Leanna Ellis

Hi Friends,

Well, I spent all night last night passing a kidney stone - OUCH. So, that on top of the Vikings loss made yesterday not such a good day. :-(

Then this morning I talked to a broadcasting person at Focus on the Family on the topic of infertility (wow, do I know a lot about that!). We were wanting to see if I might be able to meet some of their broadcasting needs, in conjunction with an article that they've already accepted and scheduled for print in the magazine for April. So, anyway, all prayers appreciated!

Meanwhile, I have another book to tell you about this week, and here it is:

Elvis Takes a Back Seat
January 2008
B&H Publishing
ISBN: 978-0-8054-4696-8

A young widow, determined to fulfill her husband’s last request, hauls a three foot bust of Elvis strapped in the back seat of a vintage Cadillac from Texas to Memphis to return it to its rightful owner. The road trip with her eccentric aunt, who knew the King of Rock n’ Roll, and a temperamental teen, hits roadblocks and detours as the three women uncover pieces of their own past along with the bust’s mysterious history. The discoveries change the course of their lives forever.
