Filed under: Home,Media Review,Seasons — Jen @ 4:27 pm

Inspired by Jess’ book list for 2009,  I decided to steal two books of her “to read” list and post my own list.  So here it is, though I’m sure it will grow as the months go by:

*An Excellent Wife by Martha Peace

*Becoming a Woman of Discretion: Cultivating a Pure Heart in a Sensual World by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

*Family Integrated Church by J. Mark Fox

*Marriage to a Difficult Man: The Uncommon Union of Jonathan and Sarah Edwards by Elizabeth Dodds

*Mother by Kathleen Norris

*Proverbs for Parenting: A Topical Guide for Child Raising from the Book of Proverbs by Barbara Decker

*Raising Maidens of Virtue by Stacy McDonald

*Survival for Busy Women by Emilie Barnes (I laugh at the fact that I am going to read this because I am anything but busy; however, I hear it has great organizational tips)

*Teach them Diligently: How to Use Scriptures in Child Training by Louis Paul Priolo

*The 15 Minute Organizer by Emilie Barnes

*The Ever-Loving Truth: Can Faith Thrive in a Post-Christian Culture by Voddie Bauchaum Jr.

*The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom by David Kupelian

*The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

*The Voice of Matthew by Lauren F. Winner

*When You Rise Up: A Covenantal Approach to Homeschooling by RC Sproul

    Hi Jen! I just came across your blog a couple weeks ago and am so impressed with your frugality…a trait that I am trying to learn and apply. I was looking over your book list I thought I would mention an excellent book that I recently read that you might enjoy: Created to be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl (www.nogreaterjoy.org).

    Happy reading! 🙂

    Thanks Alison. I actually oen and have read Created to be His Help Meet. My husband is the definition of a “Visionary” man so the book was very enlightening in that area. Thanks for the suggestion and welcome to Weeping Cherries!
