Expense accounts, exotic dining, vacations, travel, hotels, eating out, meeting new people, these may sound exciting to many, but to the seasoned business traveler the sound can be draining. Many of the items there become translated to long lines, delays, lost luggage, meeting random people, temptations, unhealthy eating choices, lost sleep, missed family events, lost time not seeing the children and often wasted time.

After years on the road traveling for business can become a drag, as it turns into a glorified commute. One year I traveled (commuted about 100,000 airplane miles within the US and about 70,000 driving miles.) Even during these excessive traveling, going to a fancy resort for a partial relaxation and partial business conference can lose its luster.

On the positive praying your way through business travel can help turn some of the negative sides into joy. The power of prayer is the most important thing in your life, so let’s get praying.

Until Forever (Women of Prayer)


Title of Book: Until Forever (Women of Prayer) ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

Author: Darlene Shortridge

My favorite quotes from book:


  • God knew each heart and where each woman was coming from. They had been meeting for years together to pray.
  • This is the one, Lord. I don’t understand it, but I trust you, and I will do as you ask.
  • Money was always just a little too tight. Expectations were always a little too high, and too many times reality was a bit too much of a letdown.
  • When a woman entered the group, she added her unsaved loved ones’ names to the prayer list?
  • She was tired, hungry, impatient, and desperately praying for a miracle from a God she had refused to serve.

Characters in book: Jessi & Mark Jenson, Ethan, Olivia, Merry, Julia and Chaplin Bob

(Info from back of book) Jessi hung up the phone. That was the fifth time she tried calling home with no answer. She had just started eating lunch when she remembered she had forgotten to call home. It was something she would never forgive herself for. It wasn’t until lunchtime that Jessi remembered to call home. No answer. She tried calling several times while she ate her lunch. Still no answer. She closed her eyes and rested her arms and head on her desk. She breathed deeply, wishing she had remembered to call earlier.

Until Forever is a story of a young family that is torn apart by the devastating effects of alcoholism. Can healing take place in a relationship when an unforgivable act is committed? Will Jessi's pain and Mark's guilt keep them apart forever, or will unforeseen circumstances bind them together?
