In Honor Of Read Across America Day
So in honor of Read Across America Day, here are four books on my bookshelf right now:
* A Journey Into Prayer - Devotional Selections from Evelyn Christenson. I loved this author’s book What Happens When Women Pray, and found this lovely little devotional. With a great prayer-related Scripture and just two pages of devotion each day, it’s a good, simple read to start the day with.
* Whispers and Wildflowers by Sarah Beth Marr. I learned about this amazing writer on Ann Voskamp’s website, A Holy Experience. Sarah Beth Marr is a ballet dancer, and her beautifully descriptive writing have me looking forward to devotion time. I don’t like the mix of Bible versions she uses, but I have my Bible on hand to read the references. And having journaling space at the end of each day makes it easy to write down thoughts and prayers.
* Rediscover Jesus by Matthew Kelly. An incredibly popular book from a well-known author, this book is also written as a daily devotional complete with questions to ponder, verses to study and prayer prompts. He offers up some great nuggets to study and think about, it’s a great book to make you find the answers to spiritual questions that are bogging you down.
* Pretense by Lori Wick. I usually have a Lori Wick book close by all the time. She is my favorite Christian fiction writer, and I have 95% of her entire literary collection. As much as I love her historical books, the contemporary stories always touch my heart. This one is about writers, so I love that aspect, and the way she crafts a story around salvation and sharing your testimony makes my heart happy.
