Congratulations on finishing out 2020 ... I have some thoughts on last year that I'll share next week. But for now, "May God's favor rest upon you and your family in '21."
For this week, however, I decided to share two "Top 12 Lists." The first one are the great reads that have explained Who God is, stretched my faith and contributed to my spiritual growth in my lifetime. The second list contains books by secular authors that have taken me places through their craft of writing that I'd never go ... entertaining, fun adventures.
Enjoy a couple of dozen absolutely great books.
May God's favor rest upon you,
My Heart, Ever His: Prayers for Women (BRAND NEW from Barbara Rainey)
As we search for meaning in our world of shallow online relationships and glamorized selfies, many are returning to traditional and liturgical churches. The repeated words, benedictions, and historic hymns connect us to saints who have gone before, giving us a sense of belonging, richness, and transcendence. Written prayers, once cast off as archaic, are now welcomed as guides to tune our hearts to the heart of God. In My Heart, Ever His Barbara Rainey shares 40 prayers for women. Readers can read and meditate on one prayer throughout the week or read a prayer a day for 40 days as a way to express the longing of our hearts to our Father who loves us even as he sees who we truly are. Like the psalms of David, these prayers are honest, sometimes raw. Barbara uses these transparent expressions of common female experiences to encourage us to surrender to Christ and help us see God as he is, not as we assume him to be. My Heart, Ever His provides a stepping-stone to help you become more transparent with God and discover his welcoming embrace. - Every purchase helps support the ministry of Ever Thine Home.
