by

I liked this book and it is quite inspiring to read how Harmony overcame her past and has risen to be an inspiration to others. I would highly recommend this book.
The Wholehearted Marriage: Fully Engaging Your Most Important Relationship

by , , and

I wasn't sure what to think when I won this book in Early Reviewers, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The authors have hit the nail on the head in teaching married people how to open their hearts to each other for the first time or again. They also show great insight into how to deal with emotions and taking a look inside yourself to see where you may have learned to react in a negative way, from your past. Whether newly married, or married for a long time, this book will hit home and improve your marriage.
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are. And when you stop expecting material possessions to complete you, you'd be surprised at how much pleasure you get in material possessions. And when you stop expecting God to end all your troubles, you'd be surprised how much you like spending time with God.

Powers: A Novel

This book turned out to be quite a page turner. I finished it one day! It kept me guessing with it's suspense and the main character's were interesting and well developed. It wasn't a typical christian fiction book and I would highly recommend it.
Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader's Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line

by and

What a great story! It chronicles Abby Johnson's story from abortion clinic director to pro-life advocate. One quote from the book that I loved: "Never trust a decision you wouldn't want your mother to know about." She shows through her story how abortion affects every area of your life even if you don't realize it and is not just an event you can put behind you. It changes you and not for the better.
A Cousin's Prayer

by

This type of book is not something I usually read. I gave up Christian fiction years ago because of stories like this. Boring and just a bunch of fluff. It was torture for me to get through this book. Maybe if I had read the first book in the series (this was the 2nd) it would've been better, but rest assured I will not be picking up the 3rd.
A Path Through Suffering

by

During recent chronic illness in my life, this book proved to be an invaluable resource and friend. Elisabeth Elliott uses the writings and life of Lillias Trotter in this book. Lillias Trotter was way ahead of her time in spiritual thought and quite a courageous woman. I would highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling and to those who are not.
Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

by , , and

I'm giving this book 3 stars only because it's is so ADD that it made it hard for me to read. Can't beat Glenn's facts and thorough understanding of the culture we are presently enduring, though.
Connecting: Healing Ourselves and Our Relationships

by

This book has changed the way I listen and talk to fellow christians in crisis or even just in friendship. I would highly recommend this book to all counselors and lay counselors. I've used the techniques outlined here and they have proven true.
