    Sr. Jose!

    Alright, Maybe I haven't read the book yet- but I certainly will! The reason I'm writing is because Sr. came to our church last week and spent 3 nights talking and praying with us, and I can guarantee you that she is very inspirational. Notice the chapter about the 'Pogo Prayer' We prayed that at church, about 100 people (Most older) jumping up and down, praying to our Lord. So, I definately recommend this book!!
