Book Review - As We Forgive by June Foster (with contest for commenters!)

Well, June, you did it again--you've written another great book about two people with real life problems who find in the Lord the way to redemption and in each other that what they saw as unloveable is loved.

Youth pastor Tim Garrett has a problem with a quick temper, as does his father. Tim prays repeatedly for God to remove this thorn, especially when the teens in his church seem out to deliberately provoke him. And then this lovely teenager runs into him. He puts her in her place and then finds out she isn't a teenager, she's the volunteer who will help him with a fund raiser.

Roxanne Ratner is shy of perfect, too; when things get to her, she goes on buying sprees. Her credit card is maxed out. She's a new Christian, and this youth pastor is certainly cute, but in their first meeting, he loses his temper. How can you trust a guy like that?

One of the youth, Johnny Thompson, seems particularly determined to get Pastor Tim fired; worse, he might succeed.

Roxanne's boss sells the hair salon where she works, telling her she is no longer needed and she must move out of the apartment above the salon by the end of that day.

Oh, goodness, how can they get out of their personal hangups, salvage their faith, and step into each others' lives?

As We Forgive is available at Amazon and Barnes and Nobel.
