Currently I am enjoying:
The Jesus Calling Storybook
by Sally Lloyd Jones–I have heard wonderful things about this beautifully illustrated,
award winning children’s Bible and it is living up to it’s theme “Every story whispers His name”.
I am looking forward to sharing it with my Sunday School class.
A Sudden Glory
(God’s lavish response to your ache for something more) by Sharon Jaynes- From the publisher’s page: “In A Sudden Glory, Sharon uses Scripture and story to help you erase the line between your “spiritual life” and your “daily life” as you enter the sanctuary of God’s presence even in the middle of your busy, messy day. Here you will find your eyes opened to moments of sudden glory in which the Creator assures you of His love as you live and move and have your being in Him. Here you will discover true freedom—the freedom of experiencing God in a deeper and more intimate way than ever before.”
I am reading this one for review but already love this lady’s take
on our God’s glory and passionate pursuit of us.
Tough Guys and Drama Queens
(How Not to Get Blindsided by Your Child’s Teen Years)-by Mark Gregston
Have not started but am looking forward to this one from my friends at Booksneeze!
“Parents of preteens and teens can move from scared to prepared with a new approach to parenting their adolescents.Parents of preteens intuitively know that no matter how good their kids are, there is turbulence ahead. Many feel lost and unprepared as they watch the damaging effects of culture collide with their child’s growing pains and raging hormones.For the past 35 years Mark Gregston has lived and worked with struggling teens and knows what it takes to reach them. He says, “A parent’s success has little to do with either the validity of their words or their intent as messengers, it’s more about how they approach their child and engage with them.”
31 Days of Praise by Ruth Myers
This is one of those books I have been pining to get for a while.
I will use it for my quiet times in the New Year or sooner.
Praying The Names of Jesus by Ann Spangler
I really enjoy this writer and have a couple of other books by her that I employ in preparation for
leading my Moms In Prayer group and also for my personal quiet times.
