NEW BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY FROM THE UMW READING LIST 
 
BEADED HOPE by Cathy Liggett
 
             A moving story about the power of faith and hope to overcome even the most tragic of circumstances.  Four women with selfish reasons for going,  embark on a mission trip to South Africa.  What none of them expects is how profoundly their lives will be transformed by those they meet.
 
BREATHE by Nicole Braddock Bromley
 
A survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Nicole Braddock Bromley, writes a guide to finding freedom to thrive in relationships after abuse.  Breathe discusses relationship topics ranging from mentoring and friendships to intimacy and marriage. And to help those who walk alongside a survivor, Breathe highlights common coping mechanisms as well as signs that signal something may be amiss.  Using characters from Scripture to illustrate the experiences of survivors, each chapter contains stories and letters from real-life survivors, their friends, and their families.
 
THE DEATH OF JOSSELINE by Margaret Regan
 
Margaret Regan writes for the Tucson Weekly and has won numerous awards for her border reporting.  She tells the story of a 14-year-old girl from El Salvador who was left to die alone on the migrant trail.  Margaret puts a human face on the multiple problems created by desperate, poverty-stricken people entering the United States illegally to look for work, and the costly measures taken by the American Government to secure its borders.
 
The church library collection is made up of books which have been donated.  There are a wide variety of book from many traditions.  There are books from United Methodist resources and from many other religious backgrounds.  There are books by moderate, conservative, and liberal authors.  Inclusion in the library does not mean that the books express United Methodist beliefs.
