I've been slacking just a little on my blogging! I guess a new baby and lack of sleep will do that :)
I have to share with you an excellent book! I went to TRBC on Mother's Day and my parents bought me this book by Macel Falwell. It's about Jerry Falwell's life through her eyes. I normally would just say "thanks mom" and then put the book on my bookshelf and save it for when Alex has to do a biography in high school. But, something compelled me to just read a couple of pages. Then, I was hooked! It is SOOOO good! There's so many things about Jerry that I did not know. We all know the media twists stuff around, but it's really interesting seeing how it works from her point of view. She even mentions my friends Dolly and Donna's dad in there a few times! The really sad part is of course the end of the book. She goes into detail about how they found Jerry after he passed. Then, they had all of the Falwell grandchildren write about their "Poppy".
He really was just a great man with a huge heart. If you have some time, READ this book. I could't put it down!
