  1. Yeah! Giveaway!
    I think I'm actually answering #4 ;-)
    One book that I think influenced my life has been "Big Girls Don't Whine" by Jan Silvous. It's a great book on being content and LIVING the life God has given you.
    I've also been reading Nancy Wilson's "Building Her House", also very encouragin.

  2. I am reading A Chance to Die, by Elisabeth Elliot. Its all about a woman with a passion for God, and I am really enjoying it!

  12. I have your button on my blog! :-)

  13. I'm going to say "Stepping Heavenward" and "Hidden Art." There are so many more, but my brain can dig only so deep right now. I need a nap.

  14. I think I've been influenced by Joyce Meyers "Never Give Up". Sure, it may be geared towards adults, but I benefited from it wonderfully!
    Her analogies are great, & she puts things into perspective.
