I Can Talk to God…
Jane Belk Moncure
This is my all time favorite children’s book. I have been sharing it with children for over 40 years.
My Utmost For
How can I not give my best to God Who gave His best for me?
The Amplified Bible unlocks the difficult wording in both Old and New testaments. Because it gives the various possible translations of each word, this Bible helps me gain depth of understanding.
The New Psychology
This book gave me an ethical springboard. I had previously seen myself as a victim (I wouldn’t have said so, but my actions did) and I had little fruit evident in my life. This book challenged my thought processes. The fruit in my life since then bears witness it was a good tool.
In His Steps
Charles M. Sheldon
A conscious choice to each day reevaluate my knee-jerk judgements of situations and thoughts about individuals changed me irrevocably. My compassion, empathy, and willingness to serve others have all increased by applying this text to my life.
Christy is a moving tale of a young woman’s journey into the realities of adulthood. I read it three times in my teens. It changed my outlook on what a difference one person can make.
The Gift of Fear
Gavin De Becker
Steve gave my first copy of this book 20 years ago. I have since purchased and shared many copies with other women.
Hearts of Fire
Voice of the Martyrs
Hearts of Fire is my current read. Very moving, very inspiring.
The Dance of Anger
The Dance of Anger is a psychology-based book. It helped me understand anger is not an unhealthy emotion in and of itself.
You Are Special
Another book Steve gave me 20 or so years ago. Though intended as a children’s book, it’s great for all ages; I just used it to bless the ladies at a recent women’s group meeting.
