I have read some really remarkable books lately and I find myself thinking about them periodically throughout each day. I'm currently in the first chapter of "Lorna Doone" with a copyright dated 1943. Anyway, here is the list of books I highly recommend, which I have read recently:
  • "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" by Anne Bronte - Excellent character study.
  • "The Man Who Was Thursday" by G.K. Chesterton - Beware the unexpected ending!
  • "Agnes Grey" by Anne Bronte - Short, but profound.
  • "The Problem of Pain" by C.S. Lewis - "The Son of God suffered unto the death, not that men might not suffer, but that their suffering might be like His." George MacDonald
  • "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen - Mr. Darcy... need I say more?
  • "Women Helping Women" by Fitzpatrick and Cornish - On counseling other women Biblically.
  • "A Christian Manifesto" by Francis Schaffer - A call for Christians to change the course of history.
  • "Fun and Games in Marriage" by Dorothy T. Samuel - my fourth read of this book
  • "Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood" by John Piper and Wayne Grudem - I'm only 5 chapters into this one, but it is well referenced and extremely thought provoking.
Any suggestions for what to read next?

Several to put on your "next" list:
The Lies Women Believe and the Truth that sets them Free (Demoss)
Biblical Womanhood in the Home (DeMoss)
The Ministry of Motherhood (Clarkson)
Feminine Appeal (Mahaney)

All good, all ones that I need to read more than once :)

The Happy Room, by Catherine Palmer. A poignant novel that addresses specific issues affecting TCKs/MKs.

Hormones, Health, and Happiness by Stephen(sp?) Hotze. Nonfiction, addresses the connection between hormonal imbalance and allergies, asthma, sub-clinical hypothyroidism, low-cortisol levels, and over abundance of candida yeast.

Dickens' David Copperfield... I also suggest reading it in the couple-chapters at a time way that it was printed. You really feel the rise and fall that way, and it makes the length more bearable :-)
