I’m loving books.
A great way I’ve found to build up our library is buying books from our local library for $.25! And borrowing from friends!
Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
Oh this book! You fall in love with Corrie and her heart and spunk for life. Its powerful and amazing and points to a God who is faithful even in some of the most gruesome times in her life. Must read.
Helen Keller by Margaret Davidson
If you feel like something is holding you back, read this short book. Helen Keller grew in to an amazing woman and a big part was to her teacher who was patient and kind and persistent. And she got to see some miraculous things in Helen’s life, teacher her to read and write and she got to go to college because a teacher believed in her.
The Life of Anne Frank by Joanna Hurwitz
Short read, probably a days read for a fast reader. Powerful story of a girl who was able to write and keep herself company during a difficult time in our history.
The Happiest Mom by Meagan Francis
Oh this book! Easy to read, and such an unconventional way this book is laid out. Meagan adding other mom’s comments and ideas making this book so real. She was honest and real about her own life and family and shared hard stuff, but in light of how things can change. Grateful I read this book.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
This is such fun read. I like young reader books. I feel like they are easier and I’m able to read and share with my son who’s five. The overall theme of love and not letting anything get in the way of helping others. And in the end seeing your own worth.
A Wind In the Door by Madaleine L’Engle
This book was interesting and a little hard to picture, but I loved the overall theme of loving people that are hard to love and seeing them as people with worth.
This book another great read! My eyes were opened to so many things I’ve believed about God that were off and because they were off they negatively affected my belief in Him. Healed a lot of areas. I marked this book all up. I think it will be a book I read back through.
*Currently reading Daring to Hope-amazing stories and such a real heart from a girl that I would presume is more holy than I, but she writes in the most humble and real ways I’m drawn to her words and God, who is using her and all of us to do great things.
