Blog Challenge #14:

The 5 books that have impacted you the most.

Here are my Top 5 Books that have impacted my life the most:

 

bible
#1 God’s Word! This book has made the biggest impact on my life. How could I not include this on my list? The Bible that I am currently using is the Study Bible for Women with Devotionals by Rhonda Kelley. I love reading out of this Bible!
Fasc. Girl
#2 – When I was about 15, I worked in a snack shop at an office building downtown while the owner friend was on vacation. He had a rack of books and I picked this book up and read the entire book in a couple of days. It was an eye opener for me.. It taught me how a young girl was to conduct her life in her teen years. I always look back on this as the first book that made a difference in my life as a young girl!
two from
#3 – Two From Galilee by Marjorie Holmes. When I was 16, I volunteered in a nursing home. A gentleman gave me this book and asked me to please read it. I took it home and read it and oh, how I loved this book. It is a fiction book and it took me back to the life of Mary and Joseph during their courtship to the birth of Christ. It gave me such a clear picture of this time in history. Loved it!
sidetracked
#4 – Sidetracked Home Executives. As a young wife and mom I was struggling with organization and keeping up with my home duties. I found this book while browsing in a book store one day and while learning how to bring order to my home, I laughed my way through the book. These sisters are a hoot! I actually made the file that they recommend. I followed the book to a T, until I had it down pat and formed my own way of doing things.
a woman
#5 – A Woman After God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George! The first time I read this book, I fell in love with the way Elizabeth writes and her heart for women living a life for Christ. This book encouraged me to have a home that glorified God. Since then, I have bought and read all of her books and studies. Matter of fact, I just bought her latest this past week, 15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband! I don’t know where I would be without the teaching of Elizabeth George!
holy
Bonus! #6 – Personal Holiness Bible Study by Rhonda Kelley! This study was such a blessing to me! I was encouraged and challenged by this study! Just had to share one more!

If you are interested in any of these books, I made a link in my sidebar that will take you to Amazon to read more about each of these books!

Do you have some books that have impacted your life?  I have many, but these pop out as special books to me!

  1. Such an interesting post and i’m always interested in good books. i’ve always heard about ‘Two from Galliee’ and think i should probably just get it and read it now. i’m enjoying this series that you are currently doing.

    1. Thank you, Lea!!!! I read that book many years ago and I still remember it. I’m not a fiction reader, but that one made a big impression on me! Let me know what you think if you read it. I saw a play several years ago taken from that book as well. The book was better! 🙂
