A Few of My Favorite Books


I recently completed this book. It has risen to the top of my favorite list. When telling my Mom and sister about this book I started crying. I had no idea it had had that much of an impact on me. I know this for sure: God cares about the prodigals. And He cares about those who are waiting for them to come home.

A Tale of Two Cities

A Classic! A tale of redemption and sacrifice. And really, who can’t love a guy who can write sentences like Mr. Dickens?

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second Chances

History! War! Secret Spy Stuff! AND forgiveness! Andy Andrews, the author, has said this is his favorite book he has written. I concur!

The Noticer: Sometimes, All a Person Needs Is a Little Perspective

I first read this book years ago. I loved it so much I shared it with my husband. The principles and wisdom imparted by a gentleman called Jones are priceless.

This book made quite the impact on both my husband and me. We even adapted lessons from the book and it’s sequel for our young adult bible study. It solidified within us decision making skills and shifted perspectives on so many levels that we couldn’t keep it to ourselves. This is a book to share. I’ve encouraged friends and family (especially my young adult kids) to read this book. Mr. Andrews brings wisdom into our lives through his words.

The Noticer Returns: Sometimes You Find Perspective, and Sometimes Perspective Finds You

Don’t forget the sequel! This is my husbands absolute favorite book of all time. And Mr. Andrews is his favorite author.

The Nightingale

I’m a huge fan of historical fiction. This one just happens to be my fav!

The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon, #3)

Okay. So, this one is completely frivolous; but, we listened to this book on a family vacation. My kids didn’t even want to get out of the car to eat. They just wanted to stay in the car. To say this book is riveting would not be an understatement!

Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust: Shatter the cage of fear. Reclaim lost dreams. Release your heart to fly.

Yes. I know. I wrote this one. So, I’m prejudiced. But the cover art by Dawn Estella still amazes me. The process of writing this book forever changed me. I am not the person I was when I began writing this book. My hope is that others are healed as they read these words. We were created to FLY!

The Wedding (The Notebook, #2)

Marriage takes work. I read this book at a time in my life when the theme resonated with me.

Until the Sun Shines, Daddy.

Daddy left earth today, December 4, 2022 at 3:12pm. Saturday morning he was moved from home hospice to inpatient hospice. He said he was there to go meet Jesus. Grady and I were able to stay the day and the night with him. We were able to play his favorite praise music, run the star…

Summer Falls

Summer falls into Autumn warm spices fill our cupsand command our algorithms green erupts into colorwarm shades of the seasonExcitement fills the air and the heartsPollen dropsyellow lingers in the windI feel it upon my faceparticles of dust Goldenrod, Ragweed, Elm and GrassHay is cut and rolled into balesI sneezeagain and againEyes red, stuffy nose…
