Reviews of Mountain Devotional

Mountain Devotional

“I got chills reading this devotional.  Candy and Julie have reminded me why I live here, and that the good book provides the answers to questions we may have.” – Bernadette Hagendorf,  Lake City, Colorado resident and current St. James Episcopal Church representative for the Lake City, Youth Council

 “Let the authors gracefully take you on a breathtaking journey, savoring the painted beauty of God's arresting, stately creation.  Be forewarned.  They take you a bit further than you might expect, pulling back the curtain of creation itself.  Behind it shines the blinding light of its Regal Architect, radiating His brilliant power, beauty, and intimate compassion.  People who have seen such things seldom remain unchanged.” – David Booth, Ph.D., is the Minister of Education and Family Discipleship at First Baptist Church in Winnsboro, Texas. David and his wife Christy have three children

 “I have been reading around in the writings of Thomas Berry recently and your book affirms his contention that nature is the primary source of revelation.  It was here, eons ago, long before the Scriptures were written for us as revelation and displays, magnificently the majestic presence of God in all he has created, the great and the small.” – The Rev. John Manahan retired Catholic Priest, former high school teacher

I think it is beautiful!! I like the way you two have tied together the threads of your poetry, prose and photos. I think Tea and Talk will have a wide audience. Phyllis Kayne, Poet and Artist

Special friends are rare and this book will be a treasure for them. I love the way you put pictures in reader’s minds as you tell the story. Your photographs are great, poetry and idea will touch hearts. A heartwarming story and I believe needed at times like the world is having now. We need to hold on to the special people in our lives and your book will be a constant reminder of this. Karen Hurd, Author and Artist

Reflections In The San Juan Mountains  From Amazon

Reflections In The San Juan MountainsI don't think it's an overstatement to say that anyone who knows Julie is better for it. She lifts up everyone.  For much of her life she did this just by being herself.  Now she has taken some of the inspiration she finds around her, in nature and in everyday activities and submitted that to paper.  As a result, we will all be enriched again by her presence.
