Books that I have read.....

As I have stated before I truly love to read. Just this past week I have read several good ones that you may be interested in. 

I have read the new Amish book by a new Author Laura V. Hilton entitled Patchwork Dreams. I love reading about the Amish. Their lives are so simple even though they are very busy and have plenty to do on a daily basis. This book took place in Seymour Missouri and I truly enjoyed it and cannot wait till the next one comes out in the series.

I read the true story about Jaycee Duggard. The little girl who was missing for 18 years!!! How crazy is that? I can't imagine being abducted and doing the things she did and surviving them but she managed to do as she was told no matter what he asked of her. It was hard for me to read but I love true stories and knew that I had to read it all the way through no matter what. She has two daughters by that man and I can understand her loving them because they are hers and not thinking about them being his. It would be a hard life but we all go through our own little tragidies and such along the way. I highly recommend that you read this book just so that you might learn some of the things in it for watching our children a little bit closer. Who would have thought that an 11 year old little girl would be abducted just walking up the hill to catch the school bus? It happens everyday though unfortunately.

I've been reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan. He is one crazy dude in my book but he also knows what he is talking about and gets it down to your level so that you know what he is talking about or what he wants you to think about. I have ordered the study work book that goes with it and really am looking forward to getting it so that I can start on it. Anytime I can find a good easy way to learn more about the Bible I grasp at it and I hope you will too.

I will leave you with these three books to think about for now and hope that my readers will indeed read them and enjoy them as I have. I look forward to hearing from you so make sure to leave me comments on what your thoughts were on any of them.
