Worthwhile Reading

This post is inspired by Liz. She has just finished an interesting book review and you can check it out at her place. She is a writer too, have I mentioned that? I only wish I were a writer.

To answer her question, here is what I have been reading, as a matter of fact, finished it yesterday. It started out being a slow read for me. I usually finish a book in about 3 days. If you would like a picture of God's amazing love for you and me, this is the book to read. Although I have not experienced what the main character Angel did, I could clearly see myself before coming to know Christ. The scripture says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love"
Jeremiah 31:3 .This book gives a clear portrayal of that love. It was a wonderful reminder of what God has done for me. I had heard what an amazing book it is so many times, and just failed to read it. You will not want to miss this one. Have a blessed day! Jackie

Hi Jackie!
First of all thank you for the birthday wish! And the compliment on the screen.

A girl at work bought me this book and gave it to me saying, "I went ahead and bought you this because I KNOW you will love it." It is her favorite book. I couldn't put it down and have recommended to others.

Francine Rivers is a wonderful writer, and her faith shines in each and every book. My husband has enjoyed her "Sons of Encouragement" series, as well as some of her other books.

Francine Rivers is one of my favorite authors! If you enjoyed this book and haven't read her others then I'm jealous because you are in for a treat! Her historical fiction is so good - the Mark of the Lion series was oh so so encouraging. Read the Lineage of Grace series - you will look at those women of the Bible in a different way.

Okay, that's enough I guess :)

Really enjoy your blog!
