My Books in 2010

I wanted to share with you the books I have read this year.

As a child I hated to read.  

As a child of God I LOVE to read...  Although we do not have God to stand in front of us to teach us and train us, we do have His Word that transforms us.

And that is where my year began, reading the One Year Chronological Bible.  For those reading along with me you know we have only 35 out of 1668 pages left!!  So proud of everyone who stayed the course.

I also read Beth Moore's So Long Insecurity, You've Been a Bad Friend to Us. I will also be reading it again with our CCA ladies as we study the one thing that plagues us women and challenges our identity to the core... Insecurity.   You are invited to join in as we meet each Monday night in January at the Epicenter on Main Street in Alachua, Fl.

Get your tissues out for this one.  And if you ever considered adoption, beware, you may be filling out your paperwork before you put this next book down...

In Choosing to See; A Journey of Struggle and Hope Mary Beth Chapman shares her life's story that includes her childhood, teenage mistakes, marriage to a famous singer, and the accidental death of her 5 year old daughter when she ran in front of a car her brother was driving.  Great story of healing, restoration, and God turning for good the events that try to destroy.

The Mailbox was a great summer read!  It is the first novel written by Marybeth Whalen and was a sweet Christian summer romance story based on an actual location that I was very intrigued to learn about.  

Crazy Love, Overwhelmed by a Relentless God by Francis Chan was definitely one I could not put down!  When you read this make sure you go online and watch the short videos as it instructs you to.  If you miss this part then you will only get half the experience of the read.

Sun Stand Still, What Happens when you Dare to ask God for the Impossible by Steven Furtick is a great book for anyone who wants to dream and do the impossible for God.  And if you never had that desire to see the impossible, this book will stir you to that end!

The Purpose of Christmas by Rick Warren (need I say more) is a short read that will keep you focused on this season's real meaning.  And you will learn how the three greatest purposes of Christmas will solve your three greatest needs.

Tomorrow I want to share with you the book I have been waiting all year for.  It was not scheduled for release until January but is now available and as soon as I learned that... I bought it!  And have already read half of it in a few days time.

I love to hear what others are reading.  It helps me decide the books I want to invest my time in next.  So I hope if you choose to read one of these books that they will bless you as they have blessed me.

By the way, only three more sleeps till Christmas!!
