UPCOMING YARD SALE
Time to clean out those closets to gather items for the Annual Spring UGBC Yard Sale! Gather you "goodies" and set them aside until the date of the sale is closer.

Plain Jayne - “Being with the Amish made me realize things about myself. About my life.” Jayne Tate loves her life as it is—living in a big city, working as a reporter for a fast-paced newspaper. When her father passes away, she’s forced to take another look at what she wants for her future. After losing out on an important career opportunity, Jayne decides to escape to Oregon’s Amish country, hoping for solace and maybe a story.
Yet even in the land of buggies and bonnets, Jayne finds life more complicated than she expected. Can she persuade herself that her growing friendship with the mysterious Levi Burkholder is just about research? Where does God fit in all of this?
