Me...a Meme?

It's been so long since I've done a meme, but when Alana tagged me, I couldn't refuse. After all, it IS about books...one of the loves of my life!


BOOKS THAT HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE:

~Just Give Me Jesus by Anne Graham Lotz...a study of John. This woman can teach the Word! She's honest, thought-provoking, and obviously desperately in love with Jesus.

~A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George. If you haven't read it, find it.

~Shopping for Time: How To Do It All and Not Be Overwhelmed by Carolyn Mahaney. Now I'm a member of the 5:30 a.m. club...definitely the most life-changing thing I've done in a VERY long time!

~The Bible. Perhaps this sounds trite, but it really is true. When I really met Jesus in my 20's and started reading His Word...I get chills just thinking about it.

BOOKS I'VE READ MORE THAN ONCE:

~Pride and Prejudice. My favorite novel. Ever.

BOOKS I'D WANT ON A DESERT ISLAND:

~The Bible. I'm afraid I wouldn't remember enough Scripture otherwise.

~Pride and Prejudice

BOOKS THAT MADE ME LAUGH:

~Green Eggs and Ham

~If You Can't Lose it, Decorate It by Anita Renfroe

BOOKS THAT MADE ME CRY:

~Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore

~Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy

~Let's Roll by Lisa Beamer

BOOKS I WISH HAD BEEN WRITTEN:

~How to Have Your Cake and Eat it, Too

BOOKS I WISH HAD NEVER BEEN WRITTEN:

If I can't say anything nice...

BOOKS I'M CURRENTLY READING:

~The Book of John

~Sacred Parenting by Gary Thomas

~The Choice by Nicolas Sparks

~Simplify Your Space by Marcia Ramsland

BOOKS I'VE BEEN MEANING TO READ:

~The Mother Daughter Connection by Susie Shellenberger

~Having a Mary Spirit by Joanna Weaver

~High Calling by Evelyn Husband

~A Jewel in His Crown by Priscilla Shirer

Who to tag, who to tag? Well, Lisa @ Lisa Writes because she's an avid reader. So is one of my first bloggy friends, Bev...so I'll tag her, too. And finally, Chris at Come to the Table. Anyone else who wants to participate...leave me a comment so I can check out your list.

Oh, goodie! You had lots on your list that I have never read. I am always looking for a book recommendation.

Thanks for sharing your favorites. I hope to tackle this today or tomorrow.

Have a great Saturday!

Hey girl..
Have you ever thought of maybe just having your own little library and we could come and "check-out" books? You have so many! But at least you do donate to the church library, which is pretty cool.
How is The Choice? I was surprised I didn't get that one for Christmas, but I haven't been in a Sparks mood anyway.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings~Alyce

Flea said...

Ooo!I just did this one! http://thegoodflea.blogspot.com/2008/01/theres-always-time-for-good-book.html

Thanks for the heads up on Beth's book. I love her studies but haven't read any of her books.

BTW - found you on Family Friendly Blogroll. :)

Great list, Melissa. I've read several of those, but there are a few I still need to read!

Chris @ Come to the Table said...

Thanks for the tag Melissa! I am working on my list. Although, I think my "books I've been meaning to read" list will be huge. I have high hopes for this year.
