With an insanely long flight and a month in Ukraine, I need BOOKS to read.

Recommendations anyone?

  1. Hi Tracie;

    This is not the official thank you note, but just couldn’t wait to say thank you to you….

    thanks so much for joining us in our adoption.

    What a blessing your offering was to us…my heart is overwhelmed to think of people who don’t know us face to face, coming along side us in prayer, friendship and finances for this adoption. Our hearts are greatly blessed-this adoption has been such a faith builder, we have been stretched by God …emotionally, spiritually and financially. We know that He will provide…we are thankful for you reminding us of just that.

    May His hand bless you -and may you know His lavish extraordinary Love.

  2. Audio books are awesome too. You can get them at the library and download them on to your iPod or mp3 player. They have lots of Ted Dekker…
    Have you read The Shack? It’s good.

  3. I went to a Christian book store before I left (right around this time) and got about a dozen different “pocket size books” (small paperbacks) for $2.99 each. The ones I didn’t get to read before coming home (um…. just one I think!) I left with my facilitator to read. Since they were all Christian fiction, I was glad she wanted to read it! -Meredith

  4. I HAVE TONS OF GREAT BOOKS I’D BE GLAD TO LOAN YOU IF YOU’D LIKE. MY TOP 5 FAVORITES THAT I’D HIGHLY RECOMMEND ARE:

    “FAMILY DRIVEN FAITH – DOING WHAT IT TAKES TO RAISE SONS & DAUGHTERS WHO WALK WITH GOD” BY VODDIE BAUCHAM

    “A MOM JUST LIKE YOU” BY VICKIE FARRIS & JAYME FARRIS METZGAR

    “FEMININE APPEAL – SEVEN VIRTUES OF A GODLY WIFE & MOTHER” BY CAROLYN MAHANEY

    “ADOPTION AS A MINISTRY, ADOPTION AS A BLESSING” BY MICHELLE GARDNER

    “PASSIONATE HOUSEWIVES DESPERATE FOR GOD” BY JENNIE CHANCEY & STACY MCDONALD

    OTHER GREAT ONES ARE “BECOMING A TITUS 2 WOMAN” AND “THE EXCELLENT WIFE” BY MARTHA PEACE; “WHEN YOU RISE UP” BY R.C. SPROUL JR.; “BE FRUITFUL & MULTIPLY” BY NANCY CAMPBELL; “A FULL QUIVER” BY RICK & JAN HESS.

    I ALSO HAVE SOME WONDERFUL C.D.’S & DVD’S FROM “VISION FORUM” http://www.visionforum.com THAT ARE AWESOME! I’LL BE GLAD TO LOAN YOU ANY OR ALL OF THEM, IF YOU’D LIKE. JUST LET ME KNOW 🙂

    LOVE YA!

  5. Sarah, I just got Deadline on itunes (the audio book version)

    Kimmie, you are most welcome! We are honored to be part of your journey! We’re all in this together.

    Jenn/Jess, hmmmm… I like political fiction, legal fiction, biographies, classic fiction (wonder if there’s anything on your must read list of classics that I haven’t read)…. what else, I like most Ted Dekker if that helps.

    Oh, and Jen, we can watch movies on the laptop. But thanks!

    Meredith, thanks! I’ll do that. I love the idea of leaving what I’ve read with our facilitator or the nurses or someone that might enjoy them!

    Tiffany, THANKS!

    To those of you using louxadoption as a log in, please sign YOUR NAME so I know who you are!! I’ve read all Ted Dekker except House, didn’t care for that one so I quit.

    Have read The Shack, but have it on audio book now too, so I think we’ll re-listen to that one.

  6. Have you read “Blessed Child”? It has an intriging premise.

    One of my favorites in non-fiction is Bob Sorge’s “Pain, Perplexity, and Promotion”. Amazing stuff…

    I agree with you about “House”. I forced my way through it (I hate to not finish a book) but didn’t like it. Too creepy!

  7. I can’t do Ted Dekker… he gets too dark; writing/reading about murder is just sketchy for me. my husband used to love Ted Dekker, too, but couldn’t make it through a number of his later books.

    A worthy Christian fiction writer to fill in the gap is Frank Peretti. If you haven’t ever touched a Peretti book, having a long time to read might be a great time to give him a go. I read nearly all of his books in high school and college and gave some to my husband to quell his sorrow over “the darkness of Dekker” and now he is rather hooked. This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness (companion books) are a smart place to start. I also fully enjoyed The Prophet and Visitation (antichristy fiction… funsies).

  8. You have got to read ANTICHRIST, ISLAM’S AWAITED MESSIAH, by Joel Richardson. It’s an easy read and you won’t be able to put it down.

    Then there is always EPICENTER, by Joel Rosenberg. That might get intense reading from Ukraine!
