I'm not sure where these books came from. My parents had these and the book ends as long as I can remember. Each book is a classic such as "Fifty Best Poems of England."
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas. Maybe you are ready to do some reading.I have jotted down some of the books I read in 2017. I enjoy reading fiction but have realized I can’t read many authors today. The rough language and the immorality of the characters do not make a book enjoyable for me. Listed are some of the authors I appreciate reading. I was able to check these out from the library on my Kindle.
"Forgotten Girls: Stories of Hope and Courage" by Kay Marshall Strom. All over the world there are young girls who are abused and killed for being girls. Strom tells their stories. Some of the girls are rescued out of horrible conditions. She has also written about women who have become Christians in cultures where they are persecuted for their faith. "Daughter of Hope: Stories of Witness and Courage in the Face of Persecution" was written in 2003. I expect times are even worse for these women. This one isn't on Kindle.
Devotional books I like:
"Diamonds in the Dust" by Joni Eareckson Tada
"Behold Your God" by Myrna Alexander
"365 Bible Promises for Hurting people" by Alice Chapin
