BITE-SIZE Chocolate for the Soul:
A Devotional with Conversation Starters
Are you a chocolate lover? Do you find it sweet, satisfying, and delicious? God’s Word can be like chocolate. Once you make it part of your daily life, you will hunger for it. Bite-Size Chocolate is the third book in the Chocolate for the Soul series, filled with inspirational stories and poems. Award- winning author, Dr. Carol, shows the reader how God’s Word sweetens relationships, solves problems, and how scripture can relate to their everyday lives. Each Chocolate for the Soul book can be enjoyed on its own. If you like Christian Authors Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer, you’ll like Dr. Carol Kennedy.

A Second Taste of Chocolate for the Soul
Do you like chocolate? Do you find it sweet, satisfying and delicious? God’s Word can be the same. Once it becomes part of your daily diet, you will hunger for it. This book is the second in a series of AWARD WINNING TASTE OF CHOCOLATE FOR THE SOUL books.
Dr. Carol shows the reader how God’s Word can sweeten relationships and solve problems through stories and psalms. The first section showcases psalms written by her and grandson Tyler. What a delightful journey!
A favorite grandson psalm:
“God, You Are Like Ice Cream to Me”.
“God Will Knock Your Socks Off!” and “Kaleidoscopes Need Light.”
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could get people as excited about God’s Word as they are about chocolate?

Do No Harm by Gary McLouth
Do No Harm creates an in-depth, thoughtful, and artistically arranged conversation between the voices of the father and son who serve as alternate narrators throughout the book. These nine stories compose a complex duet in which two voices mingle and separate, both delving into their shared pasts, both examining and reexamining their connections to other people, to the places that profoundly affect them, and – always — to the web of family that binds them.
Natural Causes and Other Stories
McLouth’s characters in Natural Causes turn vulnerable moments into acts of insight, love and the kind of heroism that passes for simple good work in a small town. These stories are linked by the intents and intuitions of people determined to do the right thing even as they are destined to endure the realities of circumstance. You could say they act out of strong faith in God and from deep commitments to family, community, and freedom, but don’t ask them to talk about it much.
