Books

I love to read.
Unfortunately, I can't devote as much time as I like to it so it's kind of slow going.....

Here's what I'm reading right now......

4.1.13
I bought this book recently because I wanted to read the book before I see the movie that is coming out this summer.
I had NO idea it was so sad.
So very sad.


2.22.13 --
You Lost Me by David Kinnaman

David Kinnaman works with the Barna Group who researched "why the Christian Community has failed to equip young adults to live 'in but not of' the world."
It is truly an issue.
Hope to be part of the solution!!!


1.27.13 -- 2.21.13

Give Them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick
Wonderful. Godly perspective on parenting!
This is a book I will be re- reading a bunch, I think!!!

This Present Darkness and Piercing The Darkness by Frank Peretti
I've had this book for years.
I'm finally reading them....
It deals with heavy stuff....demons and angels fighting but I am enjoying it!

The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri
I started this book over a year ago for Book Club.
Then I moved.
But I'm back at it and I'm going to finish it.
I think it's fascinating -- though kind of tough, to read!



BOOKS I READ IN 2014:

(Finished) Grace For The Good Girl by Emily Freeman

Loved this book.  I am the quintessential "good girl". This book reminded me that there is grace for even me!

Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton













This was a book that my book club back in Sylva started and I never finished. I decided I would try it again.  HARD to get into but great story.

Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

This book gave me lots to ponder on about what a Women after God's own heart might look like. While I think she is overly strict in some ways, it is a good book.

Dollface by Renee Rosen
