    May Book Club: “The Invisible Girls”

    Hi to all my lovely Book Club Girls!

    Let me tell you how thrilled I am that you are joining me this month in reading The Invisible Girls by Sarah Thebarge!

    Now, I have to warn you up front that this book is very honest, raw and emotional. The author is a Christian who is only in her twenties and was diagnosed with breast cancer. She lost her breasts, her health, her fiancé, friends who couldn’t handle it, her job and more. At first, The Invisible Girls is not pretty. (There is even a bad word or two, including the “F-word” used by an unbeliever to describe how awful cancer is. Please excuse it; it rings with truth.) Some of Sarah’s descriptions of what happened to her body and her relationships are graphic and painfully honest. But this is a little story with a huge heart that offers hope to anyone who is struggling with anything hard in their lives.

    Instead of lying around feeling sorry for herself, Sarah picked herself up and moved across the country to Portland, Oregon, to start a new life. That’s when Sarah met Hadhi, a young woman from Somalia who had five little girls and who was trying to figure out how to live in a new country with little money, a language she did not speak and a culture she did not understand.

    When one of Hadhi’s little girls started playing peek-a-boo with Sarah on a train, Sarah could have ignored her or played for a few minutes, then gotten off the train and gone about her business. Instead, Sarah thought, “What if I were in her shoes? What would I want?” The answer she heard was, “I would want someone to help me.”

    So Sarah did. I won’t give it all away because I want you to read The Invisible Girls with me, but I will tell you that Sarah started a relationship with Hadhi and her girls, and it profoundly changed all of their lives. I think The Invisible Girls will change your life too, inspiring you to look for opportunities around you. It will encourage you to get through the hard times in life with hope. So let’s read The Invisible Girls together and talk about it this month. You can ask for it at your local Christian bookstore or order it here.

    Blessings, my sweet girls,

    Nicole
