Good Books

I've discovered Gilbert Morris! He's not new, but I'm new to his books. Noelle received a series of his books for Christmas and I picked up the first in the series one day last week just to browse through it and ended up reading the entire book. I finished it late last night. I will begin the next book in the series at my next reading time. Santa Fe Woman had an exciting story line, but was also a testimony of God's grace and leading. It had good romance and adventure with a western flair! I also finished reading Walking with the Women of the Bible by Elizabeth George. Elizabeth is at the top of my favorite author list! I had the pleasure of meeting her several years ago when she spoke in Verona, MS. Elizabeth does use other versions of the Bible, but I look the verses up in my KJV. Her commentary is excellent. I cannot begin to tell you how much this book helped me or how much I learned from this book. I highly recommend this book to you; I believe you will look at the women in the Bible in a different light as I have. Also, she inspired me to want to renew or add these qualities to my Christian walk with God. Being a Godly woman is very old-fashioned these days, but it's still in The Book, God's Holy Bible, and it still stands true today. Godliness is not popular, but it's still right! I strive for this daily, and fail as I may, God is faithful and true, and guess what: He love-love-loves me!!!

I used to enjoy Morris' books, and then I had to quit reading any fiction for several years - my kids were little and I found myself ignoring them to read books! I may have to see what's new in his books try to catch up . . . if I can ever find the time to read now. I thought I'd have more time by now! LOL

You might enjoy Morris' The House of Winslow series. There are around 30 in this series chronicling one family from the landing of the Pilgrims through the 1960's and eventually beyond. My excuse is that they are historical!!
