Books

A list of books I love. (I will be updating this page regularly... I hope.)

Biblical Resources:


                 "In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-pictures view of God's plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God- grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents."



The Moody Handbook of Theology
I remember asking my college pastor for an all around good theology book. He said every library needs Paul Enns book. I couldn't be more thankful I have it.



Safe in the Arms of God by John MacArthur
Comforting, True words about where your child is. It was a great comfort to me after our miscarriage.

The Prayer Life by Andrew Murray has been a great challenge to my walk with the Lord, and encouragement to walk in the Spirit not the Flesh, and an essential read for my prayer life. 

Literature: 


Anne of Green Gables

Imaginiative, sentimental, funny, heart warming, amazing characters that stay with you.

The Harry Potter Series

If you are among the few who have not read this series then stop what you are doing and start reading. I have encountered a few adults who told me that they like to read "real litereature" or "adult book" they weren't into "kids series". Once they read this they changed their tune. Pretty much everyone, wether you have read the books or not, know the general plot of the books. I will say that her intricate writing and attention to detail will not disappoint. Her character development is unrivaled.


The Complete Jane Austen Collection

She's simply a fantastic writer. You've probably seen at least one version of Pride and Predjudice. But her books are better (the books always are) She's great at character development, social commentary, and just plain good at story telling.



Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future.

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.
