Tramp for the Lord by Corrie Ten Boom
Tramp for the Lord by Corrie Ten Boom
I read this book with a box of Kleenex!
I think a better way to have read it is daily, like a devotional. The chapters are short, 6 pages tops, and they take one scripture as the theme. Corrie would go into how that scripture was driven home to her, through certain circumstances.
The only suggestion I would give is to first read The Hiding Place, you will have a better understand of what this woman went through, and how she was used by God. This book goes into life after the concentration camps, so it is good to have a knowledge of what her life was like before.
Black Cat, White Cat: A Pop-Up Book of Opposites by Chuck Murphy
I bought this book for my nephew, and I almost kept it for myself.
The illustrations are very clear, and well thought out. The pop up dynamics are just precious. This should not be a book that would get rough-housed around. Some of the pop ups are quite delicate.
My nephew is 4 and enjoyed it immensely.
Infertility--Finding God's Peace in the Journey by Lois Flowers
3.0 out of 5 stars No room for God's power, Feb. 25 2004
I read this book at a very low point in my fertility journey. After finishing this book, I felt like the the author left no room for God's power to work through any fertility situation.
I understand that she never conceived, and decided to adopt, but not all of us are there. I still feel that God can bring me a baby, even if I get to be as old as Sarah! I guess I didn't feel the same from this author.
