Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
This is one of those books that will always hold a very soft spot in my heart. It’s the story of a boy who goes through profound joy, adventure, and heartbreak until he becomes a man. By the way, it’s so good that it had to be translated into 22 different languages!
Historical Fiction (based on true)
This enthralling novel will give you a picture of what life was like for an Italian immigrant family. Full of excitement, fear, and turmoil, this story will challenge you to a different perspective on underprivileged people groups.
Surviving the Tech Tsunami
Do you ever wonder how to deal with all the technology rushing at us in this day and age? In this book, Gary Miller informs and challenges people to rightly handle the technology in their lives.
My Name is Mahtob
This is a captivating autobiography about a kidnapping, escape, and recovery. It has a focus on Muslims and Middle Eastern culture, which I find very interesting.
I put this book on here simply because I didn’t have space for all the books by this author. They are all about how the author helped extremely needy children. After reading these books I am always a little depressed and challenged. They are part of what convinced me to become a teacher.
This book will push you to discover who God really is and what He means to you personally.
The Privilege of Youth
My little sister would read this book at night and laugh and laugh. I just couldn’t wait until she was finished so I could read it! Sequel to “A Child Called It”, this book a must-read! It is a mix of humor, heartbreak, and hope.
My dad recommended this book for us to read. It is so encouraging and challenging. God wants to use us and have us as participants in building His kingdom and being His hands and feet. Real Friends don’t just talk, they do! If I am like Jesus I will act in love. Love Does!!! Read this book, my friends. I’m not actually finished with it, but have been so inspired. Bob does use unique stories, but pulls out such great things!
Saving My Assassin
This is a very compelling book. It is about a courageous woman who was willing to sacrifice everything for Jesus. This book will keep you turning pages! I was very challenged after I read it.
This is a true story written by an Olympic skater about her and her husband’s lives. It ends in a tragic way that makes you fall in love with the book! I have been interested in the lives of these skaters for a long time, and therefore I was highly excited when I found this book!
