What to Read

Last month, or was it the one before, anyway, a while back our family was sick with a respiratory something or other. It was the sort of sickness that leaves you with no option other than to take it easy. As a result, I was able to do lots of reading. We haven't talked about what we are each reading for a while. With cold weather coming soon, new ideas for good reads will come in handy for all us. If not for our own reading, then perhaps as a Christmas gift idea.

Here is what's currently on the coffee table shelf:

Already read:
  • 15 Minute Family Tradition & Memories by Emilie Barnes
  • The Rabbie from Burbank by Isidor Zwirn and Bob Owens
  • Blessing or Curse by Derek Prince
  • The Place of Immunity by Francis Frangipane
  • Yeshua by Yacov Rambsel
  • numerous novels and stories to children
To Be Read:
  • Holiness, Truth, and the Presence of God by Francis Frangipane
  • Breaking Intimidation by John Bevere
Currently Reading:
  • Unleashing the Beast by Perry Stone
  • Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
  • The Power of Covenant Prayer by Francis Frangipane
  • The Sacred Romance by Brent Curtis and John Eldredge
  • Transformed for Life by Derek Prince
We've been reading machines at our house. I have caught the two littlest ones looking at us reading our "big" books longingly and have found them carting books from our section of the bookcases around. Somehow, I guess that their smaller-sized children's books just don't seem quite as fun as our thicker ones. Giggles is thrilled that she knows some of the words on the pages of our books when she looks at them. As her teacher, I am thrilled because this fuels her desire to read even more. Before it seems possible, both Giggles and Mighty Man of God will be snuggled into their ends of the couch with a book no longer needing to be read to. Right now, however, I am thankful for two little bodies that still like to snuggle in on either side of me and have book after book after book read.

Don't forget to leave a comment sharing what's in your book pile being read or waiting to be read. Please let us know what you've finished too. Good reads are like good recipes; both are meant to be passed around. Until later, keep on being thankful.
