Read with Me

I actually read The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God in one evening. I fell in love with this couple's honesty as they told their testimonies. They don't pretend to be perfect, but they do boast of God's goodness and forgiveness.

Jess and Jep take turns telling their side of their story. It's an easy but encouraging read. I love seeing couples who are striving to please the Lord in their walk with Him and their relationship with each other. It was also warming to hear of the love that their family has shown in the midst of every difficulty or trial. What an example of a Christian family - being ready to help a brother/sister in Christ get back on track.

I loved as Jep told that he finally realized he had been "living off his dad's faith."  It's a great telling of His journey to know Christ himself. And as Jess told of her struggles in their marriage, I was challenged by her desire to pray constantly for her husband. As she prayed, it "became more about God than about me or Jep. We finally put God at the center of our marriage, and He not only restored our love for each other, but He made that love deeper and stronger than ever.

I was challenged in my spiritual walk the first time that I read Tozer's Pursuit of God. This second time through the book, more than ten years later, I felt myself drawing closer the the Lord, once again. Although this is an old book, the truths are still convicting and practical. The chapters are short and the updated edition is easy to understand. It is a small book, but full of so much truth. It's a classic, and one that I will read over and over again.

And the Kindle edition of this book is currently free!

Twenty Dinners was a beautiful hardback book filled with descriptive menu ideas and gorgeous pictures. Although the recipes look a little tricky at times, I am anxious to give a few new ideas a try. I love that the author laid out the recipes in 21 meals...each including an appetizer, main course, sides, salads and desserts. The book is also divided into seasons: Fall, Winter, Summer, Spring. It's a pretty book, but not super practical for me.
