What I’m Reading

I’m going to start doing these posts monthy-ish, because as  you might have noticed, I am a major bookworm. There is always a stack next to my bed that makes it look like I’m cramming for some kind of final exam and now that I have been traveling so much I have had a lot more time to read. I’m going to list what I’m reading and then invite you all to share the same with everyone else.

I’m always jumping from book to book so even though I will mention a bunch that doesn’t mean I have finished all of them, but these are some that are on my reading list right now:

 

What the Bible is All About by Henrietta Mears: I have read this one before but a new updated version just came out so I had to buy it. It is (in my opinion) the best of the best if you want to learn more about the Bible. Such incredible insights…LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

 

And I picked this one up at the bookstore today and am already halfway through it. I have read some of her other books and have loved them as well. This one is already full of underlining and notes…really recommend it.

Just finished this-

And one of my all time favorites for quiet time…

And this last one I just ordered from Amazon tonight and I can’t wait to get it. I thumbed through it at the bookstore but it was a lot cheaper online so I have to wait t a few days to dig in.

It looks SOOOOO good. I read a few pages and was hooked!

 

What about you? Anything good on your nightstand these days? Any books you want to share with the class?

xoxo

p.s. if you click over and order through amazon, I get a small percentage of your order price as a referral fee. Just so you know!

    I just finished reading The Tehran Initiative  by Joel Rosenberg and can I just say, “Wow!!”  This is a must read! Some days I wake up wondering what’s the news and what’s in the book because it is just that amazingly bang on. So worth it(but you have to read the first book: The Twelfth Imam first. )
    I’m also part way into The Well by Mark Hall and this too is an amazing book, full of truth and insight and so desperately close to my heart.

    I’m reading “Through My Eyes”, Tim Tebow’s biography and am loving it! I’m so impressed with Tim’s parents and the wisdom they had as they raised their 5 children.

    I, of course, just finished What Women Fear.  I also recently finished Southern Fried Sushi by Jennifer Rogers Spinola.  Now I’m devouring To Live is Christ by Beth Moore and Twelve ExtraOrdinary Women by MacArthur.  Normally I also have a list about a mile long, but I’ve been finishing books quickly lately.

    I’m also looking for some good Christian fiction… anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks!

    • Godsdaughter1997

      Im gonna be getting her book, What Women Fear, soon!

    • Leigh

      For good Christian fiction that is well written (sorry, I find lots of Christian fiction  to be so poorly written) try anything by Charles Martin. Denise Hildreth Jones is also good.

    • http://KatieAx.blogspot.com Katie Axelson

      Leigh, I’ve drawn the same conclusions but as a Christian who is also a writer, I need to know what’s out there, good and bad… Thanks for the recommendations!

    • Kendra Manna

      I personally enjoy Bodie & Brock Thoene’s books. They are Christian historical fiction, and it’s always hard for me to put down one of their books!

    I just started reading The Real Me: Being the Girl God Sees. Im really looking forward to getting something out of it. I hope I do. I was blessed to be able to attend my first WOF in Tampa. Getting to listen to the wonderful women speak and share your stories and meeting and listening to my role model.

  • http://melissanesdahl.blogspot.com/ Melissa Nesdahl

    I LOVE this!!! I’m currently going through The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer and ladies, I HIGHLY recommend it.  Recently I finished Joanna Weaver’s Lazarus Awakening and it also rocked.  I posted about it here http://melissanesdahl.blogspot.com/2011/08/caught-in-middle.html  Both convict in a good kind of way and inspire a healthier Christian life.  Love that!

  • Lana Parks

    Have you read, “Heavevn is for Real?” Love that book!! “Redeeming Love” by Francine Rivers, and “Chasing Francis” are my top 3 right now. I need to get some good ones though as I’ve got some uninspiring ones I need to read, so I’m glad that you posted your list.

  • Krista Wilbur

    Wow — we read such different books! I recently finished American Wife, a loosely told story of Laura Bush’s life, and after that I read The Perfect Wife by Ann Gerhart, which is about Laura Bush. A fascinating woman! Those are the most interesting ones I’ve read lately.

  • Leigh

    I recently read Flying Solo by Denise Hildreth Jones. It’s her story of going through a very painful divorce. It is very honest. I am a fairly new widow, so my circumstance is different from hers, but I found the book to be one of the best books on dealing with grief that I have read. I read it on my Kindle and plan to buy the hard copy to re-read and underline/highlight. (yes I know that can be done on the Kindle, but I don’t like it as well as in a hard copy:)).

    Her most recent fiction novel is The First Gardener, and I think it’s her best novel yet.

    No Biking In The House Without A Helmet by Melissa Fay Green is a wonderful memoir of the author’s family’s journey in multiple international adoptions. I laughed out loud more than once and teared up a few times too.

  • Jenny Metzger

    Yawn… I’m reading “Sleeping Through The Night”… my 6 month old hasn’t quite gotten there yet. 

    I just finished “The Night Circus” and loved it.  So good.  I also really liked “Grace and the Good Girl”. 

    Miss you Angie! 

  • http://briebarton.blogspot.com/ Brie B

    so looking forward to the keller book – it’s on my christmas wish list !!! here’s to hoping :)  

  • Amy

    I miss your blog posts…especially the personal stories that brought me closer to Jesus.

    • http://www.audreycaroline.blogspot.com angelac519

      i so hope that now that im done with WOF i will have more time for writing!!! i appreciate your words :)

    Grace For The Good Girl by Emily Freeman is a must read! Fabulous Incourage writer (you probably know her!) and spoke at Relevant this year. It’s a life-changer! 

  • http://www.scrappykitkat.blogspot.com Kathy

    I usually have several books going at once, for my fiction book that I read at bedtime I’m reading The Help. For my day time reads, like for devotions or quiet time, I’m reading Grace for the Good Girl, Bringing Up Girls and Jesus Calling.

  • Anonymous

    I read multiple books at a time too! Right now I’m on Organized Simplicity and the Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion series.

    • Coby

      I LOVE the mark of the Lion Series!  One of my favorites!  Francine Rivers also has a series called A Lineage of Grace about several of the women in Christ’s lineage.  EXCELLENT!

  • Christafoss

    Angie! Hi friend. It’s been way too long. I’m currently reading, “What Women Fear” and LOVING IT! Thank you. Hugs.

  • lesliemartinyoung

    I ordered Tim Keller’s new book too! I love everything he’s written. My copy of The Reason for God is absolutely worn out. I’ve also ordered Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Tullian Tchividjian. I’m leading some women through 1,000 Gifts, so I’m re-reading it for about the fourth time! On my “to read” stack are: What Women Fear (Can’t wait, Angie!); Grace for the Good Girl by Emily Freeman, and a few others. We’ve been reading through the entire Bible this year at church (I’ve started that so many times and never completed it!) and I’ve really enjoyed using 66 Love Letters from God by Larry Crabbe as a companion to this. Highly recommend!

  • Ckrupke7

    I list a bunch that I have read this year in this post: http://pitchperfectpicture.blogspot.com/2011/10/waffles-syrup-butter-goal-9.html 

  • Coby

    I’m currently reading What Women Fear and absolutely loving it!  (My neck is sore from nodding in agreement and saying, “I’m not the only one!!!” ;-) )  I just finished Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard, and I’m slowly reading For the Children’s Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay (a homeschooling book).  I’m on the hunt for a good fiction read, too.

  • cdeering

    We are all wounded and need to really believe that God loves us more than any human on earth can or will.  The book “Captivating” by John and Stasi Eldredge will open your heart to the truth that you are truly precious to Our heavenly father and deserve the fullest life of love everyday! We are the brides of Christ, his love is sufficient!

    • http://www.crazy-for-books.com Jennifer (Crazy-for-Books)

      I forgot – I am reading this right now, too, for a bible study group at church!  Great book!

  • Alyson

    They all look great. I believe I need to order the Meaning of Marriage though. My husband and I have hit a rough patch. I have prayed about it but am not sure what else to do. I don’t even know what it is that I have done wrong. Would appreciate any prayers you guys would like to send up for us.

    • http://ashleywb.blogspot.com AshleyB

      Alyson, I’ll definitely be praying for you. 
      I just wanted to say that reading your words, “I don’t even know what it is that I have done wrong”, broke my heart for you – not in a bad way, but in a way that makes me want to be sure you know that there is likely not anything you have done wrong.  I know it’s said over and over, but I’ll say it again:  Marriage is hard and especially between Believers, it is opposed by much.  More often than not, there isn’t something big or identifiable that leads to distance between married people, but just “drift”. I say all of that to encourage you to press in and do what you can to close the gap between the two of you (and perhaps reading this book is  a great place to start!).  But most importantly pray and ask God to do His work in each of you and between the two of you.  I’ll be praying that for you! 
      Grace and peace,
      Ash

      • Alyson

        AshleyB, Ang, and Mitzi, thank you all so much for your kind words. I appreciate it very, very much. To be able to come here not personally knowing you ladies and to receive and feel the love and support is such a blessing. I know the Lord is in our marriage but that stinkin’ satan is trying to drive a wedge between my husband and I. I will not allow him to win. Much love to you all and thank you again.

    • http://www.audreycaroline.blogspot.com angelac519

      praying for you, alyson…

    • Mitzi

      Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas is great… especially if you’re in a rough patch.  Finished that one not long ago and after that read The Mailbox by Marybeth Whalen.  It’s a great one!  Reading Candace Cameron Bure’s Reshaping It All right now.  Good stuff in there, too.

  • Becca

    I am reading Pete Wilson’s Plan B. I just finished reading your book, and I’m glad I chose to read Plan B next. The two books complement each other very well. I highly recommend both.

  • Diana L.

    I’m re-reading Ann VosKamp’s book…this time taking notes and soaking in her words.  Just started Portraits of a Radical Disciple – recollections of John Stott’s life and ministry.  Just finished While We Are Far Apart, by Lynn Austin.

  • Anonymous

    I just finished A love that multiplies by the Duggars. We are different people in many ways, but I’m fascinated by their story.
    Next up is Loving the little years. It’s been recommended to me several times and I’m on a parenting kick right now :) .

  • http://ashleywb.blogspot.com AshleyB

    These look good!  I’ll have to add some of them to my amazon wish list!  I tend to have multiple books in my queue at any given time as well.
    Right now I’m reading Grace for the Good Girl by Emily Freeman, The Pursuit of God by AW Tozer, and 52 Things Kids Need From a Mom by Angela Thomas.  I’m re-reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp in my devotional time as well.  Good reads! 

    • http://www.crazy-for-books.com Jennifer (Crazy-for-Books)

      I really want to read Grace for the Good Girl!  How are you liking it?

      • http://ashleywb.blogspot.com AshleyB

        It’s really good.  She has me pegged in many ways, so I’ve done plenty of underlining and note-taking.  I definitely recommend it if you could fall into the “good girl” category, in any sense of the term.  

  • http://www.gracetags.com Janelle@GraceTags

    I’m reading a book on Angels and a book about the names of God.

    Like you Angie I do the same thing; read many books at the same time.  Lately I have been mostly focusing on Biology to prepare for my exam to teach science but I’ve gotten in some fun reading.  I just finished reading The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, which I loved and highly recommend for everyone out there, even the single people.  I’ve been also reading The Practice of Godliness book and the discussion guide that goes with it by Jerry Bridges.  I also recommend this study; it really challenges you in your faith and actions.  Once this week is over and I’ve taken my test I will be starting Crazy Love by Francis Chan and 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper.

    • Andrea

      So funny,Mel.  I just posted my comment and thought I had accidently posted it twice as you and I both started our comments so similarly.  Sorry if it looks like I was reading over your shoulder!  Love the 5 Love Languages too.

  • Andrea

    Like you, Angie, I am typically reading several books at the same time.  I am afraid that may be a sign of adult onset ADD….if there is such a thing!  I meant that towards myself…not you!  Anyway, I am currently rereading Grace Based Parenting (thanks for the suggestion many moons ago!) as well as Parenting Teens with Love and Logic.  Recently I became hooked on the author Malcolm Gladwell (not Christian literature… although I have no idea about his personal religious views).  Right now I am reading Blink by Gladwell but The Outliers is fascinating too.  They are definitely different than my typical books, but oh so engaging!  I just love reading all of the suggestions posted here.  Thanks for getting us thinking…and reading!

  • Tena

    I thought you had a Kindle?

  • Kristie

    I just recently finished reading What Women Fear and am so happy to have been able to meet you Angie last weekend in Hartford, CT at WOF and have my copy signed.  I was so excited to meet you in person.   You did an awesome job speaking and I enjoyed hearing from you personally.  I have been following your blog for quite some time now.  Thanks for sharing.
    I am now reading Stumbling Into Grace by Lisa Harper (one of your Porch Pals!)   Then it looks like I will start reading Soul Cravings by Mcmanus.

  • Laura

    Currently I’m in nonfiction mode even though I’m usually always reading fiction! But this is funny because I currently have a HUGE pile of books on my nightstand as well! I can’t decide what to read first so I do a couple at a time and stare at the other ones, hoping that by having them there I’ll zip through my books faster :-) I have so many i need to catch up on! Currently I’m reading What Women Fear (and almost done, though I’m taking my time with this one since I get SO much out of each chapter!) and Parenting the Way God Parents. Next on my pile is Made to Crave!

  • http://walkinthenameoflove.blogspot.com/ Ally

    Oh! I’m going to love these new posts of what you’re reading! The library is one of my favorite places! I’ve got When People are Big and God is small by Edward T. Welch- there’s a couple two by fours in there to hit ya right over the head! Counsel of the Cross by Elyse Fitzpatrick, Don’t waste your life by John Piper

  • Paulaschaffin

    I am reading Amy VosKamp’s book now along with Finding Mrs. Warneke.  It is about how a first grade teacher inspired a little girl to love to read and later become Teacher of the Year.

  • grubbsmith

    You MUST read “The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem” by Adam Hamilton.    This book is a fresh look at the Christmas story, perfect for this advent season.   It is an easy read and especially interesting if you are familiar with the Bible accounts of Jesus’ birth.   Very humbling and just a fresh set of eyes for the greatest story ever told.

  • http://www.crazy-for-books.com Jennifer (Crazy-for-Books)

    I am reading two books right now – One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp for my church book club and City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell.  Both are excellent so far!

  • http://www.debrairene.com/ Debbie

    I have been reading your blog for about a year now, and believe many readers may be mothers with young children just like yourself. Perhaps they don’t have enough time to sink their teeth into something lengthy, maybe they just have a few minutes here and there. May I suggest a gentle, easy read – short vignettes on family, friends, and faith of someone who is reflecting on her life and appreciating those who were a part of it. You can read it in one sitting if you do happen to catch a couple hours straight; but if not, 5-10 minutes is all you need to finish one of the chapters. Right now Amazon has it on sale for an incredible price – $4.21!

  • Lizreeves2

    I’m the same way—always have a stack of books I’m working on. 

    I’m in the middle of your book right now (What Women Fear) & of course LOVEEEE it.  I love your writing style.  Always have!

    I was given “The Resolution for Women” by Priscilla Shirer for my birthday last week.  I haven’t started it yet, but am looking forward to it.

    I also have “The Encounter” from Thomas Nelson publishers for a Book Sneeze blogger assignment.  (Go to my blog & click on the link—you get FREE BOOKS if you’ll read them & do a review on your site!)

    I’ve also got several more waiting on me, but those are the ones that come to mind most readily.

  • http://www.mysugarshotsphotography.com Rachel

    You know what’s on my nightstand??!  A little book called “What Women Fear.”  It’s by this amazing woman I saw this weekend at WOF in Hartford ;)  Remember what you said about “stalking” Beth Moore??  Well ya…I’m reading your book and I’m subscribed to your blog. You’re an inspiration and I’m SO glad I’ve heard your story!!!!  God bless you!!!!  And thank you for lifting my spirit this weekend with your amazing love for our God!!!!!

    I just finished reading “Unshaken” by Dan Wooley. What an amazing encounter!  Also finished reading over the proof copy of the inspirational novel I just published called “Midnight to Morning” It’s not on Amazon yet, except as an e-book (starting tomorrow) but the paperback is on lulu.

  • Godsdaughter1997

    The book currently on my nightstand is Captivating. Im gonna be starting it on Friday after I have my last small group meeting for the year til January.

    I started reading “Battlefield of the Mind” by Joyce Meyer and it’s really good.

  • Celiebow

    The Valley of Vision which I love along with The Divine Conspiracy by Dallis Willard very deep but really think you would love it as I am!

  • http://www.vivalabuenavida.blogspot.com Meredith @ La Buena Vida

    We’re just finishing up Sheila Walsh’s Shelter of God’s Promises for Bible Study (loved it). Next, I’m going to be re-reading The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel and hosting a read-along/book club on my blog…I haven’t read it since high school and I’m excited to dig in again.

  • http://differentparent.com/ Wick

    I recommend anything by NT Wright…he’s an incredible author, and has a great understanding of the New Testament.  I’ve just ordered “Earthen Vessels” by Matthew Anderson, and look forward to it.  I’d love anyone who’s willing to check out my book, “Different”, if you’re brave enough to wade through a book that has yet to be professionally edited…hehe.

  • Mary

    Sounds like you need a Kindle, Angie!   Your book collection will soon overtake your house!

  • http://forgivengreatlytolovedeeply.blogspot.com/ Emily M.

    Right now I’m reading “Just Courage: God’s Great Expedition for the Restless Christian” by Gary Haugen (He’s the president and CEO of International Justice Mission).  It’s a challenging book about engaging in the fight for justice.  So good so far!!!

  • Kathryn Slattery

    Reading “Lineage of Grace” by Francine Rivers ($8 something on my Kindle) and LOVE LOVE LOVING it.  (love)

    It’s a 5 part book on Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba and Mary.  Really amazing book.

  • Godsdaughter1997

    I dont wanna go into too much detail, but does anyone know a good book or some good ones besides the 2 I mentioned that talk about self image, self worth, or eating disorders? Something on the lines of that stuff.

    • Charlotte

      There’s one book called “The Confident Woman” from Joyce Meyer. That helped me a lot. And then there’s another book called “Completely His, Loving Jesus without limits” by Shannon Etheridge. It’s not directly about self worth but it’s a really good book.

    • Kristi

      Me, Myself, and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild.  I battled an eating disorder in college.  How I wish I had had this book then!  Wow!  The study has impacted me forever!  Also, another favorite of mine dealing with self-esteem and self-worth…is from TD Jakes, Daddy Loves His Girls.  He writes it to his daughters, but also as God would write it to all His daughters.  There are many profound statements & scriptures referred to in this book that have been life-changing for me! 

  • katie

     I’m reading “I will Carry You” and was more captivated by the second part of the title “The sacred dance of grief and joy” .  A perfect articulation of how so many of us feel.

  • Missy W

    Do you read the first one cover to cover like a book?!  That’s a lot of reading!  You had shared years ago a book that you first enjoyed in your walk with God and I can’t find it in your posts (there are so many of them!) and I wanted to read it.  It is about how to stay still and hear/know God….do you know what I’m talking about?

  • Megan

    Love a good book discussion! I don’t normally comment but it seems books and skin care draw me out. :) I am reading Kisses From Katie. I’m finding it inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. I just ordered Love Languages for Kids that my husband and I are going to read together. I thought it would be interesting to discover how to love on them in their “language”. And almost done with Give Them Grace which is really good. Always love your blog!

  • http://www.lynhallewell.wordpress.com Lyn Hallewell

    WAY too much on my night stand! Kisses from Katie, Stumbling into Grace by Lisa Harper, How to be More than Just a Good Bible Study Girl by Lyse Terkeurst, Simplicity by Richard Rohr and I picked up The Law of Happiness by Henry Cloud and I Will Carry You at Hartford last weekend. I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and loved hearing you in person.

    If you like the Keller book, then can I recommend, The Kings Cross and The Prodigal God (also by Keller) – if you’ve not already read them.

  • Phronsie Howell

    LOL! That’s my desk too! My list includes:

    a few books by Perry Stone
    The Attributes of God vol. 2
    Another Tozer book but I can’t remember what it’s called
    We’re getting a book that we might use for our small group called The Fear Factor: What Satan Doesn’t Want You To Know, but it’s not here yet. :(

    I have several more but I don’t remember what they are!

    AUTHENTIC BEAUTY by Leslie Ludy!!!!! <3

  • Soveryamazed

    I meet with a group of young women (under 30) from church.  We read through the Satisfy My Thirsty Soul and loved it!  It is a challenging yet rewarding book.  We all gave it a “thumbs up”.

  • Bethany Hjort

    Some of my current reads are Erasing Hell and Forgotten God, both by Francis Chan, along with The Well by Mark Hall. All three SO good and fairly challenging spiritually and mentally.

  • Jen Wallin

    I am currently reading Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges.  Excellent!  I am waiting for 2 other books to come this week,  Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper and Radical by David Platt.  I love being challenged in my faith and walk with God.

  • Rachel Willey

    I’m reading I Will Carry you by .. you.. how do I send you a personal message? :)  

    • Rachel

      Nevermind. I found your email :)

  • Melissa O.

    Just finished “What Women Fear” (LOVE by the way) and on my way to the bookstore tomorrow for “I Will Carry You”.  Chip Ingram:”The Invisible War” gives wonderful insight on the spiritual warfare going on all around us that we so often brush off rather than armor ourselves for. Elizabeth George: “A Woman After God’s Own Heart” & ” Life Management for Busy Women”. George’s writings help remind me as a wife and mother of four, not to get so lost in my “busyness” that I lose sight of my blessings and The One that gave them to me.

    • Desiree74

      I LOVED “What Women Fear”..just finished that as well. That book by Chip Ingram looks awesome! Would love to hear if you recommend that when you are done.

    Angie, I know you’re a Compassion blogger so I have to recommend a book that I’m reading now–Just a Minute by Wess Stafford. Wess is the president of Compassion Intl. and writes about those “divine appointments” when we can make a difference in the life of a child–with just a word of encouragement, a smile, whatever. The book is full of stories of those “just a minute” experiences that were life-changing. The book’s website has some great videos as well (www.justaminute.com). I highly recommend the book. 

  • Desiree74

    I am in reading Fresh-Brewed Life by Nicole Johnson. I read the original one probable 5 years ago or more and now got the revised and expanded version.  She brings out my journaling skills again. As a mom in the midst of working part-time, being involved at the kid’s school, and church I need to just be still an know..to savor the season and this book is a great way to do that!  Desiree

  • Quinn

    Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis, and Seven by Jen Hatmaker have been the two most “life changing” books I’ve read in the past year!  Can’t recommend them enough.  I’ve recommended “I Will Carry You” to everyone in my life, and thoroughly enjoyed “What Women Fear” (read it in about a day!)  Looking forward to hearing from you at WOF on February 25!! :)
