Happy Sunday morning to you!
In case you haven’t heard, Thanksgiving in the States is on Thursday. This time next week, we’ll all be in a turkey-leftover coma. But for now, we’re reasonably awake and still craving all the delicious food that for some reason we only eat once a year.
My post on Tuesday this week will be about books I’m thankful for over the course of my life, and in planning which ones to include I thought this might be a great topic to discuss here on the Book Club too!
As a teaser for Tuesday’s post … two of the books (besides the Bible of course) that I’m most thankful for are Safely Home by Randy Alcorn and I am not but I know I AM by Louie Giglio. Both books upended the way I saw life and were two of the driving forces that led to me becoming an ESOL teacher for 10 years.
Ok, now it’s your turn! What are some books you are thankful for and why?
Safely Home is one of my all time favorites!! Definitely thankful for it! I hope you like it!
i adore that book!
Really thankful for “The Lady and the Lionheart” – talk about changing your view of the world and seeing a picture of true love! wow!
Also loved Randy’s book….funny they were recommended by the same person!
Hmmm… strange that 😉
The Breaking Point by Karen Ball. I read this book when my marriage was at a painful point, and it was the first time someone ever said to me that marriage was about God making me more Christlike, not my Disney right to a happily-ever-after. That changed me completely. I’ve loved that book ever since–and Karen!–for being so vulnerable as to share her own struggle on the page so that I could be blessed years later.
I am going to look that one up, thanks Sally!
I hope you like it, Carrie! It’s been around awhile now, so I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the style is a bit dated. But it was a good one. 🙂
Well… truth is truth 🙂 ill try to overlook any dated styles 😉
I need to read this. Marriage isn’t easy!
I would have to say my scriptures. They give guidance, comfort, and purpose in my life.
God has reminded me that He sent His only Son to die for me and rescue me from death and has given me the gift of eternal life in heaven with Him.
I’m thankful for A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay- it was absolutely lovely and brought me to tears a few times throughout.
It is one of the next on my list to read!
I am thankful for the wonderful classics which bring me joy.
