What I have been Reading

9:08 AM

There is probably nothing I love more than curling up with a good book. And lately, I have had some really good ones that I would like to tell about. The first one that I would like to tell you about is Loving God with All Your Mind by Elizabeth George. My Church gave all the adult women a copy of this for Mother's Day, and I have been using it during my daily quiet time. It is about giving over your thoughts to the Lord, and I have to say that it is really changing what I think about for the better.

Another book that has been on my shelf for a while is In the Presence of My Enemies by Gracia Burnham. I love reading biographies about people of the faith, and even though I have just begun this book, their faith in God is already shining through. For those of you who may not know about the Burnhams, they were missionaries to the Philippines and were taken hostage for about a year.

The one other book I am reading is a fiction book called When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke. I love some of her books (my favorite is Roses for Mamma), and this book is shaping up to be a really good one. It is about a young woman in her mid twenties who is feeling like God is calling her to do something different with her life. So she leaves the nice city school where she is teaching (with her parents blessing), to go out west where her older brother lives to teach in a one-room school house.

So, that is what I am reading about right now. What are you reading?

  1. Hi Sarah, I got here from Elizabeth J's blog. I like biographies too. The biography of Hudson Taylor is a great one. Other missionary accounts I like are "Bruchko" and "Peace Child."

    I used to read Janette Oke books a lot (I own most of them), but I have to admit that they sometimes made me long for love and marriage when it wasn't quite time. It's good to have a balance.
