Like most other bookworms, great books make their way onto my “things I’m thankful for” list every year. It’s hard to choose favorites, but I went ahead and picked five books I read in 2015 and am thankful for.
- End of the Molasses Classes by Ron Clark: This book inspires me to be the best teacher I can be, and gives so many awesome tips and ideas for inspiring students to fall in love with learning.
- Unlikely Angel: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Hero by Ashley Smith: This true story told by the hostage survivor herself is an amazing testimony to the grace and mercy of God in the lives of broken, sinful people.
- Discovering Hope by Chautona Havig: A sweet story of love and friendship, that, unlike most stories of falling in love nowadays, upholds high standards of purity, chivalry, and commitment to God’s Word.
- Prayer Warriers by Celeste Perrino Walker: This is a story that will keep you riveted to it’s pages until the very end, and will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the Great Controversy, and the power of prayer!
- Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desires With God by Lisa TerKeurst & Shaunti Feldhahn: This book contains powerful, practical messages for girls today about putting God first in their lives and finding their fulfillment and joy ultimately in Him.
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to another great year of reading! Speaking of more reading, here’s one more thing to be grateful for. Books on sale! In honor of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, a group of independent Christian authors (myself included) banded together to offer over seventy discounted books on Nov 27-30. There’s literally something for everyone.
Every single book listed on Indie Christian Books is on sale in one or more ways. Find discounted paperbacks, dozens of books offered with free shipping, $0.99 ebooks, package deals and more. Even if you have a budget of $0, new reading material awaits you.
