So there you have it (well, most of it). There are some more books on my list...but I am starting to go cross-eyed looking at this computer screen! :) I would love to know some books you are hoping to read one day and also if you have read any of the ones I mentioned above (and if so, I'd love to know what you thought of it/them)!

If you haven't already...check THIS out. It's a list of a lot of books I have read and recommend! I'm sure there are more that I have forgotten to list there...but when I remember to, I add them!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I know some of you won't be interested in this post...and that's okay. I know that there are some of you who will enjoy checking out my list. :)

♥ In loving kindness,


  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your book lists with us!!! Have a Blessed Evening!!

  2. Looks as if you a big John MacAuthur fan. Me too! Listen to him daily on local station. I think I have the Francis Shaeffer book in the attic...maybe a few of the others. Have you read La Abri' by Fancis Shaeffer? It is one of my all time favs..Great list. Just stopping by! Blessings and I pray you get all of those on your wish list. If I find any of those I will contact you.... I would be happy to send to you.

  3. I read Shepherding A Child's Heart and it was a very good book but I have to admit that I found their companion book Instructing a Child's Heart to be even better. If that one isn't on your list yet, you need to add it in! Have you read Chosen By God RC Sproul, Family Practice RC Jr or Everyday Talk John Younts? Right now I am slowly working my way through Jesus Freaks by Voice of the Martyrs which is a collection of short stories of various martyrs from biblical times to what was present day when the book was put together. Really powerful.


I am always so grateful to read your comments! I thank you for the time you took to visit and share your thoughts with me. :o)
May you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend!
Warmly, Katy
