In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ~ Proverbs 3:6

{ Book List }





“A good book is the best of friends, the same today and forever.”
- Martin Tupper -

Before I had kids, I often had a book in my bag or in my purse, if not two or three books.  I have found it difficult to spend time in a good book since the twins were born, but I still make an effort to read a few books each year and hope that I can fit more reading into my schedule as my children grow. 
 
I have yet to get a Kindle or Nook ~ there's just something about the actual book that I love!   I like biographies, fiction and non fiction alike.  A lot of what I read is from a Christian perspective or a Biblical world view, but I do read other things as well.
