The Girl in the Green Sweater by Krystyna Chiger; the true story about a group of Polish Jews who sought refuge from the Nazis in the city's sewer system; the author is the last surviving member of that group. It's also about the man, who was a former thief, who risked his own life to help them survive, bringing them food and supplies.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Cleft Heart: Chasing Normal by Karl Schonborn.

A memoir about growing up during the 50's, and having to deal with a cleft palate, a heart defect, and being bullied for being "different". I won a free copy from Library Thing.

A Simple Faith by Rosalind Lauer, a book I won from Library Thing. It is set in an Amish community, but the characters are not typical of what you usually find in this genre; it's different in a refreshing way.

Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer.. As a Christian, it is a great Bible Study, BUT it also helps with the Healthy Life Style! Building a stronger and positive mind = success on this type of journey. I have always been my worst enemy and critic. It's awesome to learn how to truly "think" of yourself in a new and positive way. Self-Love is very, very important!

Something I'm learning to do...
