My Love for Reading and Book Reviews for January 2012

I love Fridays and especially this one because I have a weekend off from Mardel and a long weekend off from work with Monday being a holiday.  Woohoo!!

I have always loved reading but since I started working at Mardel I have had the opportunity to read and review so many wonderful books and the love for reading as grown

So here are a handful that I have read and recommend for different reasons:
1.  Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis
2.  Tim Tebow's Through My Eyes
3.  Tony Dungy's Uncommon One Year Devotional
4.  Jesus Calling for both children and the adult one too!
5.  One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
6.  Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo (There is one for children too)
7.  Courageous (the movie is supposed to wonderful)
8.  Seven Days in Utopia movie and book
9.  Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst (Proverbs 31 Ministries)
10. I Am Second
11. The 10 Second Rule by Clare Graaf  
12. What happened to my life?   Finding New Passion, Purpose, and Joy by Danna Demetre
13. Fearless by Michelle Aguilar (Winner of Season 6 of The Biggest Loser)
14. Don't Waste Your Sports
15.  Do Something Make Your Life Count by Miles McPherson

I have either started and or finished reading all these books and would recommend them to anyone who has a love for reading. 

If you are interested in some good fiction christian novels please let me know and I will give you a few authors to check out this next week.

I am also going to review some new blogs I have become familiar with and will let you know what I love about each of them.  I hope to start sharing several per week as well as share some interesting testimonies
from wonderful men, women, and children I have had the pleasure of meeting along my journey.

Have a wonderful Friday night and if you need prayers please let me know and I will be happy to do that for you and are those you know who may need to be lifted up to our Heavenly Father. 

Remember to love others and give them all you have when with them, talking with them, and spending time with them.  Try to make the world a better place and change the lives of those you know or encounter just because you can in a way that lets them know you CARE.  Together we can make a difference.

Grateful for another day to live a life filled with love and joy while being the best I can walking the walk as a christian, mom, teacher, daughter, aunt, sister and friend.
