Join Us For Our Next Book Discussion Right Here!

We will be having a book discussion on my blog for our next Chick Lit Book Club meeting on MaryLu Tyndall's book, Surrender the Heart.  If you have read Surrender the Heart please join us by sending me (message me on facebook or email me: your thoughts and I will post your answers right here on my blog along with your first name!

Here are some questions for you to answer:
(choose 1 or as many as you like)

1. Who was your favorite character - or who could you relate to the most and why.

2. Did anything surprise you about the story?

3.  Marianne, a self-described plain Jane, felt like she didn't 'measure up'.  Have you ever felt like that? What impact did Marianne’s story have on you?

4.  What tremendous burden did Noah carry around with him? How did it affect his life and his decisions?  Can you relate to him in any way?

5. Noah's father used Noah's guilt against him.  What is the best way to handle people who manipulate others to get what they want?

6. Do you have a fear of something? A fear of water, heights, death, closed-in-spaces,
clowns? Where do you think that fear came from? What is the opposite of fear? What
eventually caused Marianne to overcome her fear of the sea?

7. What caused Captain Milford to be so morose and volatile? Do you think it’s possible to
miss God’s calling on your life even if you’re a Christian? How? What was the effect on
Captain Milford? How could he have avoided it?

8. Do you believe that God has a purpose for your life, a destiny He wants you to fulfill? If
so, what did Marianne have to do first before she could ever begin to fulfill that destiny?
And what did Noah have to do?

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

I can't wait to read all of your thoughts on this wonderful book!  Start sending as soon as possible as I will be getting this finished soon :-)
