Books You Should Read


I've decided to start a monthly books I recommend thingy on my blog. (That's the technical name) I love to read but as many of you mom's might know it is difficult to find the time. With all the trash on TV it's a good alternative. I myself feel completely self indulgent whenever I am captured by a great book. I can tune everything out around me and am likely to snap at anyone who disturbs me. This is why I don't often allow myself the luxury very often. I'm starting out this section with my all time favorite fiction book. Redeeming Love is based on the book of Hosea. I was so moved by this story because it reminded me of how patient God's love is. Women especially can relate because often we don't allow ourselves to deserve God's grace and love. We tend to judge ourselves much more harshly than our maker does. I've read this book twice I love it so much. It pulls you in from the first chapter. I usually finish this book in about 2-3 days. Pick up a copy at Lifeway and tell me what you think. I'd love to hear what some of your favorite reads are....

We were so separated at birth!

This is one of my very all time favorite books ever. I couldn't put it down. I love Francine Rivers - she rocks!
