Books I Love!

Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer--The book that contains the phrase that inspired the title of my blog--Letter XVII is extra special! I love the writing and thinking of C. S. Lewis, and this is a gem, one less-quoted and less-talked about than some of his others, but one of my favorites!
Early into my blogging I discovered the writing of Ann Voskamp and was quickly pulled in and inspired by her 1000 Gifts List. Now a big fan of Ann's Book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are , my own counting of graces large and small is something I share with joy!

If you've never read anything by Phillip Keller, I highly recommend all his books! His signature work is A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23. Phillip was the lay pastor at the church I grew up in and I loved to listen to him teach. His books all started as Bible studies developed at my church. This was a man who walked with God.

Walking On Water, by far my favorite book on writing, and the creation of art from a Christian perspective! Madeleine L'Engle writes from a lifetime of wisdom and a wealth of experience. This book both instructs and inspires!

More to come!!
