From My Library

Good morning Friends~
Oh what a glorious morning it is! When I gaze outside all I see if white powdery stuff blanketing everything. The joys that winter brings.
Wanted to share three books that I borrowed from my oldest daughters bookshelf last week.
  • If God Should Choose by Kristen Stagg. This is the story of Jim and Roni Bowers, missionaries in Peru; the plane they were flying in was shot down by the Peruvian Air Force and Roni and their daughter Charity were killed. It is an amazing story of lives completely surrendered to God. I'm almost finished and think this book should be on the list for homeschoolers to read.
  • Attitudes of a Transformed Heart by Martha Peace. This looks like a wonderful study on Romans 12:2; I've read some of her other books am excited to start this next.
  • A Life That Says Welcome by Karen Ehman. I am not familiar with this author but was so drawn to this book. It reminds me of Open Heart, Open Home that I read as a new Christian. Can't wait to get through all of these books.

A big thank you to my girl for having such an amazing book collection. She belongs to a online book exchange and is constantly getting new books to add to their collection.
Have a wonderful warm Monday.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Thanks for these recommendations Noreen because I've not read any of them before ...

  2. Those sound great... but I think you should throw in a Christmas book (o:
    How do you like this freezing weather? I do not like it.I I need to look up some names of restaurants and email them to you (o:

  3. Hi Noreen,
    Those books sound good. I have read one of Martha Peace's books before, "the excellent wife", it was really good.
    I am reading a book called " Having a Mary heart in a Martha world. It is very good too!~
    Don't you just love Christian books, I have learned a boatload of stuff over the years from Christian books.
    Well, finally finished decorating my living room this morning. Yea!!

I haven't been on much as I have been working on a lesson for church and getting ready to go to Italy on Saturday to see our kids and grandkids for Christmas! Your house looks beautiful! See you at Nellie's place~I'll come back to visit you when we get back in mid-January.
