Here are some final details:
~ DO NOT PANIC if the book takes you a bit to get. Many places are sold out but the publisher put a rush on the printing and they be in next week. I will structure the study so it won’t matter if you haven’t started reading it yet by the kick off on Monday. You can get a copy here, here, here, or here. And yes, you can usually get it from a library too. Or, you can get the Kindle version and download a free Kindle app (both on Amazon) and read it on you computer or mobile device.

I have extended the study to include weekends too since I had so many guests who want to participate. They will each share a post on the theme of the chapters we are studying and offer a fabulous giveaway each day too!
