A Mile in My Flip-Flops by Melody Carlson

Gretchen's story has so many parts that I think many of us can relate to.  She has been dealing with her broken engagement for 18 months now and has isolated herself during that time from others.  She has come to the point where only 2 things comfort her: HGTV and Ben and Jerry's.  How many of us can relate to at least one of those items?  For me, it's definitely all about the ice cream.  Mmmmmm!  Gretchen has come up with a great plan to get out of her tiny one-bedroom apartment that she shares with her half chocolate Lab dog - she's going to flip a house.  Having no real experience other than what she's "gathered" from observing her dad over the last 20 plus years, she believes she's ready and fully aware of what is involved in flipping a house.  But, like many of us, Gretchen is unaware of what is really involved in a venture of this nature.  She is a woman with a plan to make changes in her life, but even she isn't prepared for all of the changes God has in store for her.  It's a great story that anyone who's done any remodeling can appreciate and the rest of us can certainly enjoy for other reasons.  So follow Gretchen as she moves onto a new pathway in life and finds out that life is rewarding beyond her dreams!
