My husband is a huge baseball fan. I, via osmosis, have come to enjoy the game – mostly. OK so I can keep up and read or do a crossword simultaneously. I read biographies occasionally and found that I would probably enjoy this one. I like to hear about people who proclaim their faith and actually do something with their wealth instead of just spending more on sex, drugs and alcohol or whatever floats their boat. Silly me – when there are people hurting in first world countries and we are obsessed with knowing what celebrities are doing I find that a little obnoxious – let alone other places where hurt is rampant.

SOOOO this book was recommended by a friend who literally was having a hard time putting it down and was weeping on and off throughout. I thought – lovely, let’s have some of that!

How many people would never call themselves a leader and yet Continue reading “A Manifesto for Growing Leaders on Your Campus By Tim Elmore”
This is Keller’s latest ‘mini’ read. I do love that his publisher has his books produced in these small, compact units.

This installment is a little different from his previous works as it talks about justice, obviously. Continue reading “Generous Justice By Tim Keller”
The theme of this book, I think, is: Trust God and others with who you really are.
This is not your ordinary Christian Living book. I was recommended this book by several different people and some of them hadn’t even read it through. As I said the theme is trust. We find ourselves at a crossroads in our lives where we have to decide whether or not to please God or to trust Him. Continue reading “TrueFaced By Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, John Lynch”
