A Joyful Heart – Family Full of Joy

There’s a whole lot of inspiring and encouraging stories in this book! But I will say that one of the most special things about this book is FAMILY! I was reading through some of the chapters last night and it hit me! Our Bramblett family is all over it! Thank you Shelia Sheila Farr for putting this amazing book together! Just look at the back cover of the book; Shelia Farr, Grace Johnston and myself are all decedent’s of the Bramblett Family! As you read our stories you’ll find mention of our family! I think Virgil and Jewel Bramblett would be very proud as three of their children are a part of this book! Tom Bramblett (Pepaw) and Stella Chesney are mentioned in the book and Grace Johnston is a co-author. Wow! And best of all, our book just made #1 International Best Seller in Christian Self-Help!! Thank you to all who purchased a digital copy! We expect books to be here early October!


What in Tarnation?

What does Tarnation actually mean? Not sure, but I recall being asked “What in tarnation are you doing?” when I was a kid. Perhaps it was the tone of voice or the oddity of the word “tarnation”, but I knew it wasn’t good.

Now that I”m older, I’d like to ask them “Why in tarnation?” I mean, check out these outfits we wore.

They may not remember all the things you gave them. But they will always remember the Love you shared with them.

As I was driving to work this morning the song L.O.V.E. by Nat King Cole played on the radio. Listening to the words, I thought of my family. Hug your family tight and LOVE them for this is what they will remember. Material things only matter for a short while. LOVE will last forever.
