One of my friends asked my mom to ask me to come up with a book list for her. She has been struggling with the Harry Potter books and the Twilight series lately. She doesn’t want to read those books, but she doesn’t know what else to read. I thought it would be good to put it on here too. That way ya’ll can read the great books I’ve read (and trust me…I’ve read a lot!!). If anyone has any more books to add to it, that would be wonderful. They HAVE to be Christian books, but it doesn’t matter if it is fiction or nonfiction.
Love in Christ, Kelsea M.
Do Hard Things: A Rebelution Against Low Expectations
This book is the book that motivated me to do what I could to glorify God. It is one of the reasons I started this blog. Alex and Brett Harris are wonderful authors and seem to be wonderful Christian guys (I don’t know them personally, so I wouldn’t really know =) ). It is already a bestseller and everyone I know who has read it REALLY liked it (including me! =) ).
I Kissed Dating Goodbye
This book is where I am getting some of the stuff I write. Joshua Harris is the author and he is Alex and Brett’s older brother. It is probably going to be the first book that we read (if you choose to participate) in the book club that will start sometime soon. It (as the title suggests) is about not dating during your unmarried years. Instead, it says that waiting is the best policy. It comes from a man pretty experianced in this area. It is a must read!!!
The Orphan Train Series
This is a series of three wonderful books. It really doesn’t have anything to do with Worth the Wait unless you wanted to say that it has great examples of Godly wives and Godly husbands and the beauty of it. It is the stories of kids who have lost their parents (some as young a five years old) and are thrown out onto the streets of New York in the late eighteen hundreds. A very compassionate man (Charles Loring Brace) picks them up and takes them to his shelter until he can put them on what they called an orphan train. The orphan train took them out West where they were taken into (and usually adopted by) the home of a couple out there. Some were put in good homes, but others didn’t get into good homes. It is really heart warming. I wished I could have taken a couple in myself!!! =)
