Daily Light ~ This unique devotional is completely
God’s Word developed into brief devotions for morning
and evening. The forward is by Anne Graham Lotts who highly
recommends this legacy (Her mother, Ruth Bell Graham, received
a copy as a girl as did Anne who in turn gave one to each
of her children) book. The pages are dated so it’s
an extra blessing to give one to yourself and a loved one
too, so you’ll always be on the same page.
I lay My Isaac Down ~ Carol Kent
Although the subject matter seems daunting at best, Carol’s son is in
prison. It is not because of the hope Christ provides. No matter where your
Isaac is, this book will lift you up, dust you off and empower you with one
mother’s testimony of getting to the other side of hopelessness and despair
through the love and promises of Christ. It’s an absolutely amazing read
Heart, Open Home ~ Karen Burton Mains
If hospitality is on your heart but you find yourself on overwhelm at the thought
of putting everything together…this is the book for you. Basically the
pressure is off as we learn about hospitality versus entertaining. Karen Burton
Mains makes it all doable and enjoyable with her encouraging heart and practical
helps. This book has been around for a long time but its blessings are timeless.
Sacred Romance ~ John Eldredge
The best way I know to describe this book is to say that it lets God be God…big,
miraculous, omnipotent, loving, forgiving and merciful. Reading Sacred Romance
is like getting glasses after squinting at everything. You’ll see the
love of God more clearly in new, amazingly joyful and unexpected ways.
Message Promise Book ~ This little soft cover
book is filled with God’s Word as translated in The
Message Bible. It offers the reader quick access to verses
that are categorized by topic. Personally I love the quick
reference especially when I’m looking for a way to
bless someone in his or her specific area of need.
God’s Will for My Son
God’s Will for My Daughter
This small volume is the perfect prayer partner for a parent. It came to me
by recommendation from my good friend Emilie Barnes. The book lists specific
life topics and places the word daughter or son right into Scripture, providing
us an easily accessible way to say Scripture prayers for our offspring. Open
it randomly or specifically. The inspired prayers become a comfort for the
parent and cover for the child.
This read is the Titus woman between book covers. Picking up Choices is like
having a very wise and understanding older woman to help you make life decisions,
big and little. The blessing of Mary Farrar’s knowledge, unending wisdom
and godliness take the reader by the hand and frankly, sometimes by the shoulders,
as in, “What are you thinking?” All the while she is encouraging
the reader toward wise decisions for her marriage, parenting, home and career.
Child ~ Brennen Manning
If you have trouble believing that you are truly God’s beloved child.
This is the book for you. Brennen Manning has a way of weaving God’s
Word, his own experiences, personal testimony and amazing stories into a rich,
colorful tapestry of God’s unconditional love. Abba’s Child is
a book you’ll want to reference it again and again.
Will Make A Way ~ Dr. Henry Cloud, Dr. John Townsend
More than a million readers consulted the faith-based advice of Dr. Henry Cloud
and Dr. John Townsend's Boundaries. In God Will Make a Way, these two clinical
psychologists explain that it's not until we realize that we don't know what
to do that we are able to hear God's voice. Counseling readers to embrace problems
as gifts, they discuss how readers can apply these principles to 18 real-world
dilemmas, ranging from dating to self-discipline to weight control.
