Books...Books...and more Books


Melissa tagged me for this book meme. I thought this might be fun especially since I have been looking at this stack for the past two weeks. Most have to do with being a wife and mom. Many I have read before and I am drawn back to them for some reason this year.

So here it goes...


BOOKS THAT HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE:~

The Bible


BOOKS I'VE READ MORE THAN ONCE:~

(starting with the most recent)
Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney
Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp
The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges
Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow
Just Enough Light for the Step I'm on by Stormie Omartian
Finding Peace in Life's Storms by C.H. Spurgeon
Pursuing the Will of God by Jack Hayford
Praying God's Word by Beth Moore
The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartian
The Way of Agape by Nancy Missler
The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom


BOOKS I'D WANT ON A DESERT ISLAND:~

My Bible and an empty notebook


BOOKS THAT MADE ME LAUGH:~

BOOKS THAT MADE ME CRY:~

The Lost Boy by David Pelzer
(It made me weep!)


BOOKS I WISH HAD BEEN WRITTEN:~

BOOKS I WISH HAD NEVER BEEN WRITTEN:

???


BOOKS I'M CURRENTLY READING:~

Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp
Emotionally Healthy Spiritually by Peter Scazzero
(I've been muddling my way through this one for months)
Lies Women Believe by Nancy DeMoss (for the 2nd time)


BOOKS I'VE BEEN MEANING TO READ:~

Having a Mary's Heart in a Martha's World by Joanna Weaver
Sacred Influence by Gary Thomas
Holding on to Hope by Nancy Guthrie
Amazing Grace in the life of William Wilberforce by John Piper
Renewal on the Run by Jill Briscoe
Be Still My Soul by Elizabeth Elliot
The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment by Tim Challies and John MacArthur
Age of Opportunity by Paul Tripp
(I have high hopes and a huge wish list at Amazon.com)

This was a lot of fun. The only thing missing is a list of books I've read recently and would highly recommend. If you want to participate go ahead and let me know so that I can come and read yours too! I read mostly for greater understanding and knowledge of the Word of God and Christian living at this season of my life and anything fun is usually read to me by one of my kids.

What a great glimpse into your "book stack." I have one that looks about like that too, LOL. Always a "to be read" pile! Great titles. I especially love Tripp (and his brother's) book, and Oh! The Hiding Place! Love it.

Thanks for sharing! I may do a post like this if I have time. :)

I'll be adding to my wish list! Boy, this is making it tough to refrain from buying books this year!

Oh, so much great stuff here. I'll be back to look through your list. I love Lies Women Believe and keep it on my nightstand.

I posted my list. Most of them are not near as "deep" as yours. :-)

I recently started Feminine Appeal and Shepherding A Child's Heart. Heth told me about them :) I'm also reading Captivating, but I need to focus on just one so I don't get all mixed up.
