Summer Book Club

Walking with Purpose is taking a break this summer but some of the ladies would like to continue meeting on Friday mornings for a book club! No registration is needed and the only cost is for your own copy of the book. Meetings will begin after 9:00 a.m. Mass on Friday mornings and conclude around 11:30, we’ll provide coffee and tea.

The plan for the summer is to read the following books:

June: To Heaven and Back: A Doctor’s Extraordinary Account of Her Death, Heaven, Angels, and Life Again: A True Story by Mary C. Neal M.D. (Author). From for $9.39

In 1999 in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, an orthopedic surgeon, devoted wife, and loving mother, Dr. Mary Neal, drowned in a kayak accident. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Mary was underwater for too long, and as a result, died.

To Heaven and Back is Mary’s remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again. Detailing her feelings and surroundings in heaven, her communication with angels, and her deep sense of sadness when she realized it wasn’t her time, Mary shares the captivating experience of her modern-day miracle.

Mary’s life has been forever changed by her newfound understanding of her purpose on earth, her awareness of God, her closer relationship with Jesus, and her personal spiritual journey suddenly enhanced by a first-hand experience in heaven. To Heaven and Back will reacquaint you with the hope, wonder, and promise of Heaven while enriching your own faith and walk with God.

July: No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy, 10th Anniversary Edition by Fr. Donald Calloway (Author) From for $14.95
