A Red State of Mind

Hi all!
I'd like to introduce you to a blogging friend of mine, Ms. Nancy French. She is a southern girl like myself who grew up in Tennessee, not far from my neck of the south and spent some interesting time in the nether regions of the north such as NY and Philadelphia, as did I,... plus she is a sweet Christian as well.
A few years ago...during one of our recent Presidential elections, she found herself, an active Republican, plopped down in the city of Brotherly Blue. Much to her surprise...the majority of folks there have not only never heard of grits but they have never voted Republician either...she was shocked, appalled and goaded into action by such things as anti Bush posters at her daughter's school, the pledge of Allegiance with "under God" left out...and many other incidents that she retells to us with great hilarity in her new book, A Red State of Mind.
Her book can be pre-ordered at a discount through Amazon before the publishing date of Oct. 9th and although I haven't read it yet, I can't wait! I have read lots of Nancy's work and have found her to be honest, politically savvy, purely conservative and completely hilarious. Check her out for yourself.

I have also read her blog and totally agree with your description of her..she is very funny while being clean and making her values clear to all. I can't wait to read her book, thanks for the head's up!
Oh, I'm also from the nether regions of the North...Michigan but love all things southern (except maybe sweet tea):)

No offense taken from this Northerner..it is a Southerner's duty indeed as well as it's a Northerner's duty to make fun of sweet tea! What a great Country we share, isnt it!

I'm looking forward to reading her blog as well as her book. I find I never have too many Christian "sisters" no matter where y'all are from..PA native but lived in the south and found I can pretty much love people everywhere. (love grits, hate sweet tea)
