Care to Share?

What are you reading currently? Feel free to list the books and titles and any other info you care to share. I'd love to know what you are reading, so I can add more to my to be read list.

What are your favorite books of all time?

I'm reading several books now, you can check the sidebar to find out what I'm reading currently and what I've read recently at any given moment. The two I'm spending the most time with now are: Signs of Life by David Jeremiah and What's So Spiritual about Your Gifts? by Henry and Mel Blackaby. I'm also on the super slow plan of reading Gary Thomas's books, Sacred Marriage and Sacred Influence - both great books.

I am reading the Classic Edition of My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. Love it. I love the clarity of the words rather than the idioms and cliches of modern English. There is a simple truth in the way the Classic Edition presents the writings.

I'm also reading Fight Like a Girl by Lisa Bevere. Powerful book for women. Where Captivating by Staci Eldridge talks about what women want, Fight Like a Girl tells about the restoration of women and the promises of their value. As I said, powerful.

"Spiritually Single Moms
Raising Godly Kids When Dad Doesn't Believe"
Nancy Sebastian Meyer. You can listen to her on www.oneplace.com under Focus on the FAmily. Wonderful! Haven't read it yet, but will as she gave a lot of hope to moms that struggle with leadership in the home. Also worth noting is "A man Called Norman" also at www.oneplace.com under Focus on the FAmily. OUtstanding 2 part story of a man who was ostricized by society and a loving pastor made him his friend and led him to the Lord. HAd my kids listen and we all wept. Very touching!!

I'm reading, "Life with God" by Mike and Michelle Green.
It's about...well, life with God. It's an inspiring account of two people who walk daily with Jesus. After studying and practicing occult religions for 20 years, they submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in early 1994. Their fascinating testimony was filmed by and shown on "The 700 club."

Thanks for asking

I'm reading the Word and spinnets from books.

I recently read "Abba's Child." Loved it.

Also the fiction book, "The Shack." Powerful picture of God's love. Might not be all theological. But still amazing.

I am reading several books right now, as listed on my Quotes and Notes blog, but none of them are really pulling me in. They are just the next stack of reading from my shelves that I am going through one more time before unloading them. I can hardly wait to get to the next batch. You may wonder why I don't just unload them without reading them if they don't hold my interest...I should, and some I do. But there is this flaw in me that says hang in there and read it one more time...maybe there is something I need to learn...a nugget of truth hidden in the books somewhere. Like I said, it's one of my flaws.

Here is another...

I am reading a fantastic book called Deadly Emotions by Don Colbert, M.D. - I found this book on the Joyce Meyer website, I love Joyce. The book is awesome - it explains the importance of laughter, smiling, relaxing, forgiveness, etc., in connection with staying and being of good health.

It explains all the physical things that happen to the body from just ONE good solid belly laugh.

Here is a quote from the book:

A SMILE -
A smile costs nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who give it. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or so mighty that he can get along without a smile and none is so poor but that he cannot be made richer by a smile.

A smile creates happiness in the home, promotes good will in business, and is the cornerstone of friendship. It can perk up the weary, bring cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and is nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet, a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.

When people are too tired to give you a smile, give them one of yours. No one needs a smile so much as he who has none to give.

Cool huh?

Robin said...

Thanks Jel for the Hannah Alexander book listed above :) I am going to use this particular comment section when I make my list for the library :) So much easier than trying to remember it, what blog it was on, or find the scrap of paper.

Have a great day!

I'm copying a list from Life Adapted that she gave me in my Actions Speak Loudest blog 4-21-08...

"Hi Robin, I'll give you my short list for now - btw, your Reading Room is awesome!

The God of All Comfort by Hannah Whitall Smith, The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom (with John & Elizabeth Sherrill), A Call To Die by David Nasser, With Love From a Mother's Heart by Glenda Revell and The Bronze Bow (I'll have to look up the author). I also love historical fiction and illustrated children's books, like Jill Murphy's books about the "Large Family". I wonder if you know all these or if any are new to you? Be blessed."
