books worth reading

If you have the chance to read any of these: do so.

Novels

Pascal’s Wager by Nancy Rue –> it’s brilliant. 

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers –> while you’re at it, pick up Her Mother’s Hope and Her Daughter’s Dream

Roses for Mama by Janette Oke –> my favorite as a young teen. I still love it today.

The Shadow Women by Angela Hunt –> biblical fiction. one of the few that I enjoyed the entire time.

Twice Freed by Patricia M. St. John –> biblical fiction. it made a huge impact on me when I was a teen.

Found Treasure by Grace Livingston Hill –> I collected all the Grace Livingston Hill books when I was in my teens. this is my very favorite.

Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard –> a pilgrim’s progress type book. but for women. and so, so amazing. there is also a kid’s version that is wonderful!

Tales of the Kingdom by David and Karen Mains –> three books of parables. I love them so.bad. they are kids books but it doesn’t matter. read them anyway.

Non-Fiction

Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman by Anne Ortlund –> my first taste of disciplined living. a classic.

Discipling One Another by Anne Ortlund –> also a classic.

Jungle Pilot by Russell T. Hitt –> the story of Nate Saint. when I was single, I was often teased about having a “crush” on Nate Saint. that might be going a little overboard but I can tell you this: I compared a lot of men to him and stayed single a long time. but then I met someone who passed the test. and he’s a very, very good husband. just saying…

These Strange Ashes by Elisabeth Elliot –> anything by E. Elliot is good. but this is my favorite.

One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp –> Yes. That’s all. Just yes.

Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis –> One girl’s story that is sure to inspire your own.

A Chance To Die by Elisabeth Elliot –> the life story of Amy Carmichael. this book influenced me more than I think I’ve even fully realized.
