Springtime Reading!!

It's Spring...Okay...for me MARCH is Spring!! Anyhew...I always do a bunch of reading in the Springtime. I do a bunch of reading all the time...but with the kids playing outside and my not being able to leave them alone to craft, bake or do other things...I grab a book and pick a seat outside...and I read.
I've mentioned my desire to read all the christian biographies and autobiographies I can get my hands on. One of my New Year's goals is to read all of them in our small church library. I want to encourage every christian to read them...because they are inspiring and can really change your perspective.

Our Pastor shared Charles Spurgeon's conversion story last Sunday. I liked it so much I asked him for it...and here's the LINK...I hope reading this short blip of a bio will inspire you to read more.

Some stories I've enjoyed so far are....
A Chance To Die by Amy Carmichael
Hymn Writers and Their Hymns by Faith Cook
Her Heart Can See about Fanny Crosby

A while back I wrote about a bunch I'd read...probably the group of books that got me on this reading journey. HERE...
