A New Book....

Last night at VBS my friend brought me this book to read. It was just in time. I had JUST finished Minnesota Moonlight (which was GREAT) and I needed something else to dive into at night. Both girls said I would be hooked and finish it within days....

Last night, I came home from VBS (which I forgot to get pictures of...) scurried the kids up th stairs to their beds and quickly jumped into mine. I was so excited to read my new fat big book. have not read any of Francine Rivers works before but everyone that passed by commented on what a great author she is.

Hubby climbed into bed with me and we chatted a bit and caught up on the day and he dozed off.

Me, on the other hand.... not so much. I stayed up WAY past my bedtime and devoured every word. It was addicting and GREAT and sad all at the same time. Im no where near finished. Hubby woke up, looked at the clock and kindly asked me to turn off the light.

I obliged knowing he needed his sleep for the morning...

Tonight, after all the VBS kids are checked in, I will be sitting at the registration table reading my heart out and then...

I will be off to the store to buy a book light, so I can read all night long.

What Christian Fiction books do you enjoy reading???


  1. Oh girl you need to read Karen Kingsbury!! I have every.single.one of her books. LOL! She is THAT good! Also, Deanna Gist is really good too. :)
    From a momma who has stayed up WAY past her bedtime TOO much consuming a new book. :) I sit on the bathroom floor that way I'm not disturbing my sweet hubby. LOL!

  2. Francine Rivers!!! love her. I also loved reading the love comes softly series by Janette Oke (they are wayyyyyyy better than the movies they tried to make for halmark based on them. the books are so different and so much more filled with God than the movies).
    the Mark of the lion series are my faves by Francine rivers, but all of them are good. i just finished Leotas Garden and it was absolutely fantastic.

  3. The best book ever! I read this book several years ago, could NOT put it down, learned so much from it, and still declare it one of THE VERY BEST Christian fiction books I've ever read. I've seen it going around church and am thinking of picking it up again. How much more will I gleam from it now that my relationship with God has grown so much? Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

  4. I love reading too. Just bought another book as well. I have all the Rivers books. She can not write them as fast as I read them. Ha!

  5. Love that book!! After I read that one my sister-in-law sent me the "Mark of the Lion" series by Francine Rivers those books change me and deepened my walk with the Lord. I don't think I can read the bible again the same. It made each word real to me even though the characters in the series are fictional they are based on characters in the bible. You have to make these your next read.

  6. I do love Francine Rivers. And Redeeming Love is one of my favs. I also discovered a Christian author who I'm really enjoying right now. Her name is Lisa Samson.

  7. This is my daughter's favorite book..she is 19 and read it one day!!!
    I love The Hawk and the Dove by Penelope Wilcock

  8. 聰明人之所以不會成功,是因為他們缺乏了堅忍的毅力。..................................................

  9. I've heard great things @ Francine Rivers, now I want to read her even more and having a nursing baby is a great excuse for reading.

  10. I haven't read anything other than a children's book, or homeschooling book, or parenting book, or marriage book in so long...and I don't know if I've ever read any Christian fiction. Maybe I'll start with this one. Will that be a dangerous thing...or maybe just a little Mother Culture?

    Hope you're feeling well. Being pregnant in July can be rough (we celebrate our oldest son's 8th B'day Thursday...it was 103 degrees the morning I walked out the door to have him...spent a lot of time indoors that summer too:)

  11. I loved Redeeming Love! It is actually the first book in that genre that I have read. I have been reading Pathways to a Purpose. There are some books that I just can't put down!
    Peaceful wishes,

  12. Redeeming Love is the best book ever, and they are making a movie now. Just get ready, when you get to the end, just get a couple of boxes of Kleenexes, becuase you will need EVERY ONE of them.
    I've been wanting to read it again so bad the last couple of days, but I loaned my copy out, and I think it's being held captive. Might just have to go buy another.

  13. I love Lori Wick and Karen Kingsbury and Beverly La Haye.
    And if you are in the mood for a little Christian Amish- Wanda E. Brunstetter!
    Enjoy your book- let me know how you like it!

  14. I LOVED this book. I read it last Christmas and couldn't put it down. I recently read a Christian suspense novel called Never Let You Go by Erin Healy. I'm definitely a book worm! Have you read any others by Francine Rivers?
