Teaser Tuesdays (Dec.4)

December 4, 2012

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
 Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

“In fact, the most significant spiritual growth in one’s life usually takes place in personal times of study and worship — not in a church building. Church is not meant to be the fuel for your spiritual fire — your individual relationship with Christ is what will keep your spiritual flame burning.”

~ p.112, “The First 90 Days of Marriage” by Eric & Leslie Ludy

 

 

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

  1. Yes agree on spiritual growth not necessarily happening in a church building! This book sounds like it’ll have many sequels, the next 90 days etc ;) Our teaser features Stephen King’s The Stand, as our Dec theme is books we love to read! http://read.lib.uts.edu.au/2012/12/teaser-tuesday-4th-of-december-2012.html

  2. Oops! That link is wrong. New link

  3. Last week I began reading The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, by N.K. Jemisin, and so far I’m finding it quite fascinating!

    I’ve heard about this book, it sounds good. Here’s my TT http://myromancelandia.wordpress.com/2012/12/04/teaser-tuesday-5/

  5. Though the book doesn’t sound like my cuppa, I do agree that spiritual growth is personal, and has nothing to do with a building. My teaser: Night’s Darkest Embrace

  6. Interesting. Food for thought.

  13. A teaser that I most definitely agree with!

    Two teasers from me this week, both books with one word titles beginning with ‘S’…although that was a coincidence :)

    Teaser Tuesdays:
    “She remembered taking some of those shots when that annoying blurriness filled her vision in one eye or the other. She would shoot extra frames on those days, in hopes that she’d hit the mark with at least a few of them, despite her inability to properly hone in.”
    ~pg.66, “Worth a Thousand Words” by Stacy Hawkins Adams

  16. Interesting teaser not something Id be interested in reading though, but I like the quote you picked.

    Here is my teaser: Guardians of Stone by Anita Clenney

    http://seeingnight.blogspot.com/2012/12/teaser-tuesday-50-guardians-of-stone-by.html

  17. Mine’s up. I picked a free read: http://www.aliceaudrey.com/?p=9482

    Your teaser states the key aspect of living in the Spirit. My teaser is definitely less lofty:

  27. That’s a great quote, thank you for sharing!

    My teaser tuesday this week is from The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.

    Great teaser! I think I’ll get this book to keep on hand to use it as a wedding shower gift. It sounds like it has good advice. Here’s ours: http://www.ourstack.blogspot.com/2012/12/tuesday-teasers-agenda-21-and-in-too.html

  29. True. We shouldn’t expect the Church to feed our relationship, it is, after all, a personal relationship with God.

    My teaser this week is from Stop Stealing Dreams by Seth Godin http://allsortsofbooks.blogspot.jp/2012/12/teaser-tuesdays-stop-stealing-dreams-by.html

  30. I agree with your teaser. One can’t expect spiritual growth based on an hour or two of church.

    My teaser is from Jack Templar Monster Hunter.

    http://mrscaptkirk51.blogspot.com/2012/12/teaser-tuesday-dec-4.html

  31. Another great teaser. You always have such interesting teasers:)

  32. edandemsreviews permalink

    I’ve always thought that it was your belief in God that was important, not going to church every week. Thanks for the teaser!

  46. I don’t believe belief in god really has anything to do with marriage and making it work, but that’s just my opinion. This sounds like a good read otherwise, thanks for sharing! Here’s mine this week: http://owl-read-it.blogspot.ca/2012/12/teaser-tuesday-40.html

    I heartily agree with this statement. I am not a church goer but I do believe that going to church one day a week is not really going to make you a spiritual person, it is what you do in the week after the church service that makes or breaks you spirituallly. You can find my teaser here:
