The Elements of Style
3 of 5 stars
Pithy. A tad tedious in spots. I liked Chapter 5’s list of reminders the best.

Godspeed: Making Christ's Mission Your Own
4 of 5 stars
I’ve watched the Reality churches grow and attend them whenever I’m near one. I’ve been praying for Daisy since she was first diagnosed. I loved this book. I felt like I was hearing Pastor Britt’s heart. I am encouraged to be on mission …

Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food
5 of 5 stars
I loved this book. Lysa expressed what I’ve been feeling for years with my eating. I can’t eat wheat (I am allergic and will go into anaphylactic shock and die if I eat it!) but that doesn’t mean I don’t have eating issues. Because I’m…

Blessings Of Obedience
4 of 5 stars
I LOVE Andrew Murray. I haven’t read anything by him (yet) that I didn’t like. I’ve been feeling lately like the root of all the problems people face is because they don’t obey God’s Word. Murray shares the blessings that come from obedi…

Respectable Sins Discussion Guide: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate
2 of 5 stars
I LOVED Jerry Bridges’ book Respectable Sins. The workbook (written by someone else) was severely lacking, however. It didn’t cover some key points in the book – like chapter 6’s Directions for Dealing with Sin – which I thought was the…

The Art of Racing in the Rain
3 of 5 stars
I probably would’ve rated this higher if it didn’t have such a heavy emphasis on karma and reincarnation. However, I did like the story and the protagonist’s dedication to his craft and to proving his innocence.

Seven Sacred Pauses: Living Mindfully Through the Hours of the Day
2 of 5 stars
I liked the concept of stopping for prayer during the day. I am trying to put this into practice with bell alarms on my cell phone. However, a great deal of this book is self-focused. In my seven sacred pauses I would rather turn my eyes…

Inner Simplicity: 100 Ways to Regain Peace and Nourish Your Soul
1 of 5 stars
While I really enjoyed St. James first book and parts of this book, I grew weary of fishing the tasty bites out of the pools of malarkey. Psychics, runes, out of body experiences…. really??? It’s so much easier to find inner simplicity…
