New Online Book Group

I am SO stinkin’ excited!!!!!

Seriously, I almost can’t contain myself….

I am getting ready to start an new Book Group (Wednesday, January 16th) and I would love to open it up to each and every one of you here in bloggy land!!!

The cool thing is that I already emailed Beth and her team at Living Proof Ministries to let them know about it and they were super excited that we were doing it! (How awesome is that?!?!?)

Any who, here’s the scoop…

1) Go out right now and pick up your book or order it online here from Amazon.

2) Read one chapter a week…that’s it!

3) Check back here every Wednesday afternoon to add your comments to the “Get Out of that Pit” post.

4) Tell your friends and family about it so they can join the Book Group with YOU! (How cool would it be to have people all over the world reading this at the same time!)

5) If you live in the South Florida area feel free to join us! You can email me at melissamashburn [at] bellsouth [dot] net for location and time.

Shoot me an email or reply to this post to let me know if you think you will be joining us…it is going to be a GREAT time!

Pit Partners No More,


  1. Mari,

    Oh yeah! That’s great! Thanks for the plug on your blog! 😉


    How cool is it that you are all the way up North and I am in the Deep South of Florida? I love it! This is going to be a great group!

  2. I’ve never read anything by Beth Moore. I had a look online at my local Christian bookstore though and they have it so I’ll go get it today or tomorrow … I am super excited to be joining this on-line book club !!! FUN FUN FUN !! Thanks for hosting it !!

  3. Bonnie,

    You are going to LOVE her! She is a tiny little spit fire and she has a passion for Jesus…what more could you ask for?

    Glad to have you join us!

  4. Mel I am excited about this. I have had this book on my wish list at Amazon since it came out. Hmmm maybe now is the time to buy it. I will pray about this a get back to you. The prayer will be that this is God’s plan and not mine because mine would be to jump in with both feet.

  5. I would love to get into this study group, but because I live in Spain I would have to order the book on amazon and wait a while for it to arrive…maybe it´s too late for this time? I think it´s a great idea!

  6. Hi Mel…I already got my book. I am so ready. I’ll be there on Wednesday. Let’s get out of that Pit. What pit?, Love, Jules

  7. This sounds great, but I’m a little overloaded right now. Can’t commit to it, but I’ll may “audit” it, to borrow the old college terminology! 🙂

    Stop by my blog for a cup of coffee when you get a chance – there’s something you may like. 😉

  8. Hello my friend, What a wonderful idea. I wish I could join you. I am already reading 3 books through our ladies ministry at church. There are days and weeks I feel terrible guilty because I have not done my part.

    Maybe next time around.

    Smiles and Hugs

  9. It’s me again. I am passing on a bloggy award to ya. You can play along if you would like…but you don’t have it. Wanted to show you a little love.

  10. Thanks for the info. on your son. How scary! Whenever there is medical issues with our kids, I think it doubles the “scariness”. I’m glad that he’s doing good now.
    I posted today about my daughter’s medical issues. Feel free to check it out, too.

  11. What a great idea – and a very popular book as far as I can tell from other bloggers. I have the book so I’ll join in, too.

  12. I am so excited! I just bought this book a couple of weeks ago and have yet to start it. I am going to do my best to participate.
    Thanks for hosting.

  13. What an awesome idea Mel! I am going to get hold of the book too (hopefully I won’t be too behind you all!!). Count me in.

    Yes my cousin Ally is awesome.

    Love that you have hooked up with her too 🙂

  14. I think it is so wonderful you are doing this Mel. I’m going to be out today and will drop by the Christian bookstore and see if I can get it and join in. It will be fun doing it with woman of all ages.

  15. P.S. You have an award at my place! Pick it up anytime, no hurry!

    Have a great weekend!


  16. Count me in! I just ordered it online at Amazon ($4.99 + shipping=$8.98 that’s a steal!) and put a hold on one at the library to use until mine arrives in the mail. Yeah!

  17. Yeehaw!!!!!!!!! I can feel a “non” pit party coming on!!!!!!

    Go God!!!

    I can’t wait to get this started!

    Read Chapter 1 and let’s dive in on Wednesday 1/16/08!!!


  18. “Officially” letting you know I’m in! I have the book and will join you next week!

    I’m SO excited….I think this will make reading the book even more fun!!!
