From The Vault--Joanna's Adventure

Today's book from the vault is:
Joanna's Adventure
By Mildred Colvin
HP 779

Life in Cedar Bend, Kansas, has become one predictable day after another. Joanne Brady helps her father with his patients, smiles sweetly at her beau, and secretly chafes over the boredom of it all. She wonders, is this really all life is meant to be? Where is the romance? The adventures? And then one day she asks God to send her someone exciting and unpredictable...and dangerous.

Clay Shepherd has been on the road all his life, moving from one wrangler job to the next, never staying long enough to put down roots. Unexpected events draw him back to the one place - and one girl - he remembers fondly. When Clay arrives in Cedar Bend, Joanna finds herself drawn to the charisma and excitement that surrounded him. But she knows he isn't a Christian and she shouldn't be unequally yoked. So why does she feel Clay might be the answer to her prayers?

I'm curious, what do you do when life starts to feel boring and mundane? How do you mix up your day-to-day life to make things fun and exciting?


  1. I try to move things around in my routine, play fun music all the time, or make it a point to do something different, like go visit a friend or if I have work to do, move down to the coffee shop rather than sit at home.

  2. Hi Kaitlin, sounds as if you have boredom well in hand. Just so you don't borrow Joanne's solution and find yourself in an adventure you don't want. LOL!

    I haven't been bored for many years. Of course, if I ever run out of things that have to be done, I may find out what it feels like again. As long as my mind is active, I figure my life will not become boring.

  3. I have only recently become acquainted with Mildred and her work. Wish I had read Joanna's Adventure, but then, maybe it's not too late. Thank you for featuring this wonderful lady and author this week. June Foster

  4. Hi June, I'm glad you made it by. No it's never too late. I think you'd like Joanna's Adventure, but I may be partial. :) Thank you for your kind words.
