< Books as Mentors here. God uses words in books to help shape my heart and character to be who He’s created me to be. This list will be added to throughout the year with books I am reading or have read. Though some of the books I list here, I’ve received at no cost to me in return for my review — my review is always honest.
You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream
2013 Book List
Are you a dreamer? Do you want to be? Oh, my, this book is a must read. The book has already made a powerful difference in me, in the most gentle, loving, graceful way. Holley has a way of conveying her heart so beautifully in words, making us all feel as if we are the most beloved. (Received a copy to review.)
To Walk or Stay
This is more than a book, it’s a testimony. Lara Williams shares her story of God’s faithfulness and redemption, during and through a most broken, and devastating struggle in her marriage. One that could have easily destroyed her marriage — adultery. Through her words, she offers the power and beauty of God in the midst of suffering and reveals the love of the Redeemer. This book is full of God’s wisdom, His Word and Lara’s personal and profound insight. It’s drawn my heart closer to both God and my husband. (Received a copy to review.)
Lead Your Family Like Jesus
Friends, this is just where my heart is right now. Husband and I both have a desire to raise our children like Jesus in order to raise them as followers of Him. This book holds wisdom, practical insight and tools to equip us to do just that. (Received a copy to review.)
I am just beginning to understand what God means by “do JUSTICE” for this mama. This book has proven to be a message that God is purposing to shape my heart with. I am learning to do JUSTICE, love MERCY, walk HUMBLY and desire to raise children that do the same.
Just what I needed this year. This book is my mentor. John C. Maxwell, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth: Live Them and Reach Your Potential
Women at War: Bringing Peace to YOurself — And Your Girlfriends Too!
