April News 'Meet The Author'

Well here we are well and truly in British Springtime. As I write the rain is pouring down and the heating is back on at Life!

But the sun will shine again! God has promised "He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your heart with joy" Acts 14:17 (NIV)

We need the rainy seasons to feed us when its hot and dry later on, just the way in our spiritual life we have to learn to live through the storms that come, because it's in those times we learn more about the one who says "peace, be still" to our troubled heart and mind.

It's about those life storms that Edward Muttema writes in his new book 'God is in the Business of PIcking up the Pieces'. You can come along to our next 'Meet The Author' with Edward on Saturday 23rd April from 10am-1pm and he will be happy to talk with you and if you want to buy the book, sign it for you as well.

Edward lives locally and attends church in Weston-super-Mare. He writes from the heart and inspires his readers to face the challenges of life with faith and hope.

"We have all been bruised, broken, and hurt. It is the stuff that life is made of. A family tradgedy, a failed marriage, a debilitating disease, the loss of a loved one. You may have reached the end of your tether - distraught, helpless, and beyond pain. This is real, and for some, unless something dramatic happens, there is no light at the end of the tunnel. This book challenges you to face the rigors of life head-on. It offers an alternative. A realization that behind every brokenness is a God whose business is picking up the pices, your broken pieces - a God who is competent to deal with your hurt, pain and dissapointment, ready to restore the broken and heal the fainthearted..."

The book is priced at £12.95 and already available from Life.

Come along on 23rd April between 10am and 1pm to find out more.

There will, as always, be tea and coffee flowing and room to sit and chat and meet with new friends and old.

Spring is here and it's a cold, bright sunny day in Weston as I write. As the flowers and trees begin to bud we are reminded of the new life and new beginings that Christ brings through His death and resurrection. Easter will be early this year on March 27th.

Why not give the children and young people your church has contact with the real message of Easter, in the form of some of the lovely books we have on special 3 for 2 offer at the moment? Lasts a lot longer than chocolate!

Also send the message of freedom in Christ to your family and friends using some of these beautiful Easter cards...

And don't forget Mum on Mothering Sunday 6th March. We have often been told we're the only shop in town that sells cards that say 'Mothering Sunday' rather than just mothers day and we have some very beautiful designs in this year...

We also have some great gifts in store, from books full of life stories, hints and tips, books to study, and books to relax with, to DVD's and pictures to 'Holy Socks', CD's and of course Bibles small enough to fit a handbag or large enough to read from a distance! So pop in and browse, linger over a cuppa, because even though its sunny outside it's still chilly enough to warm your hands on a mug of hot coffee or tea and meet old friends and new ones at Life. We love to see you and have a chat!

First of all we'd like to say a huge thank you to all our customers, friends, supporters and prayer partners for your part in keeping the Word on the street in Weston-super-Mare and area.

In September we went away for the annual Christian Resources Together Retreat at Swanwick and were amazed, after just four years in 'the trade', to come home with the runner up award  in the 'Independent Small Retail Store of the Year' category of the annual awards! This is thanks to God's great provision and also to all of you who support us here at Life. Thank you.

To see more of the award winning books and CD's and DVD's pop in and take a look at the display in store.











We are looking forward to being part of the Tear Fund Big Bake (find out more by clicking the link) at Life during October.

On Saturday 17th October between 10am-12 noon and 2.30-3.30pm you are very welcome to come and join us for tea, coffee and home made cakes. All money raised will go to the Tear Fund Big Bake appeal to help vulnerable children in places like Cambodia, so please give as you are able, to help them to help the children.


This past week has seen more improvements at Life as we have at last been able to renovate the outside toilet to a degree. Now much easier to access, down a small step rather than the massive one which was there, and freshly painted. Also the front and rear of the shop have been repainted. We have also been able to twin our toilet in Weston with a toilet in Nepal thanks to the Tear Fund Toilet Twinning project.

All of this was  accomplished entirely from donations made for cups of tea and coffee in the shop so thank you to all who have had a cuppa and donated!

Watch this space as we hope to have a Toilet Twinning party in the not too distant future at Life.

Our next Meet The Author event is coming up fast!

On Saturday 8th August we have local author Carole Sampson joining us for the morning to launch her latest book 'Treading on Eggshells'. The usual coffee, tea and cake will be on offer, free of charge.

Treading On Eggshells

"A heartwarming novel of a girl growing up and making her way in th 1950's, 60's and 70's...

Judith always knew that she was adopted as a tiny baby. She has grown up as a member of the Harper Family and shared all their joys and sorrows.

She has learned when it is safe to be herself and when it is wiser to 'tread on eggshells'"

Carole weaves a lovely gentle story set in and around the Bristol area bringing reality and fiction together to produce a believable set of characters in down to earth places and dilemas.

A great summer read!

Priced at £6.99
