SharpenHer Bookshelf

Yesterday, I asked what books you had on your night stand, and thanks to your comments, I now have some great suggestions for future purchases.  I love a good book – fiction and non-fiction.  So, what’s sitting on MY nightstand?  Here you go:

Say Yes To God, by Kay Warren  This is an inspiring book to challenge your view of total surrender to God.  Whether you need to surrender parts of your character or your total world view, Kay will encourage you to seek God’s ways instead of your own.

So Long Insecurity, by Beth Moore  I’m reading through Beth’s book with the Pastor’s wives on my Team.  We typically read a chapter each week and share our thoughts with each other via email.  It’s a great method for staying connected with each other while growing in faith.  We actually kick this one off on April 4th.

God’s Armor Bearer, by Terry Nance  One of my PW’s loaned this one to me.  I haven’t tackled it, yet, but it looks intriguing.  Definitely on my to-read list.

And, on my Kindle App for my iPhone:

Immanuel’s Veins, by Ted Dekker  This one is fiction.  I always have a little mind-candy ready to go.  I love Dekker’s symbolism and story-telling.  If you like mystery, sci-fi, action, and romance, you’ll like Dekker.  Oh, and he always has a Christian theme in his books.  He weaves a masterful parallel of the Christian faith in all of his books. 

Ok, so that’s my nightstand…..or the SharpenHer bookshelf.  If you’ve read any of these, I’d love your thoughts.  Drop me a line!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Those are great books/recommendations! I have the Kay Warren app on my iPod but am really wanting the book.

    I have a heap of books on my Kindle–which stays in my handbag, lol–mostly non-fiction & a little bit of fiction. This week, I’m starting “In Christ Alone: Living the Gospel-Centered Life” by Sinclair Ferguson & finishing up Brandilyn Collins’ “Deceit” (Christian fiction/suspense).

    Our Senior Pastor’s wife is leading us through the book, “Big Girls Don’t Whine” by Jan Silvious.


    • I don’t have the actual Kindle, but I love my kindle app! I forgot one more book on it, though. “Tortured for Christ” by Richard Wurmbrand. Non-fiction. It’s the true story of the torture he endured in Romania because he is a Believer. It will change your view of…everything.


  2. Tricia~I also have “So long insecurity” on my nightstand along with Kay’s book, “Say yes to God”. As you know I have read “Say yes to God” and it had a huge impact on my life! But it is one of those books that I go back to over and over when I need my perspective corrected or a reminder of who I am in relation to who God is and what He has called me to do…which is to say yes to really, truly LOVING others! Kay’s honest account of her journey to saying yes to God…is inspiring!
