    My favorite book is redeeming love by francine rivers. I like it because it has a beautiful message of unconditional love.ReplyCancel

    Island Dreamer by Robin Jones Gunn. I’ve read it dozens of times, even as an adult. I love it because it shows the pull I romance but a fulfillment with God, and ends with two friends running unabashedly into the ocean. Puts me at the beach every time!ReplyCancel

    I agree with Steph, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. The description of God’s unconditional and redeeming love really speaks to my soul.ReplyCancel

  • Xty CruzMarch 26, 2014 - 11:11 am

    My favorite would be Lord of the RingsReplyCancel

  • Marji LaineMarch 26, 2014 - 11:38 am

    Choosing just one book is so hard. I think my favorite at this point would be Tidewater Inn by Colleen Coble, but Shattered by Dani Pettrey and When the Smoke Clears by Lynette Eason make close followers.ReplyCancel

  • Katie EliseMarch 26, 2014 - 11:56 am

    There are so many fantastic novels out nowadays, so I couldn’t possibly choose between them (although Susie May Warren always has a special place on my bookshelf). I would have to say that Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is my all-time favorite classic. This book appeals to readers throughout the generations.ReplyCancel

  • Heather OlsenMarch 26, 2014 - 2:25 pm

    So hard to pick just one . . . my favorite book that I have read recently is Light in the Window by Julie Lessman. I like this book because it goes back and tells us the beginning of the family story, and it has wonderful romantic tension and chemistry. My favorite genre is historical fiction, but I also enjoy contemporary romance.ReplyCancel

  • Tari LawsonMarch 26, 2014 - 6:37 pm

    I love Wicked. I found it to be unlike anything I had ever read and loved that it challenged my way of thinking.ReplyCancel

  • AnastasiaMarch 26, 2014 - 8:33 pm

  • Dericka BuckelsMarch 26, 2014 - 10:05 pm

    My favorite fiction book is Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Even though the creature has committed heinous crimes I still feel sympathetic towards his quest to be loved, which makes me like it.ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte PadgettMarch 26, 2014 - 10:22 pm

    My most recent favorite was Ordinary Springs by Lenore Hart I read so much and most of them are very memorable. but I guess if I must pick an all-time favorite it would be Not As A Stranger.ReplyCancel

  • Deanna BarkleyMarch 30, 2014 - 1:56 am

    At the moment, I would say Francine Rivers A Mother’s Hope. The follow up Her daughter’s dream is also compelling. They both show how your actions affect others.ReplyCancel

  • Della BarkerMarch 30, 2014 - 6:37 am

    It is so hard to narrow it down to one book. I’ve read many books and have loved them all for different reasons. At this time I’m reading a series called A Mystery from the Mississippi Delta by Carolyn Haines and I’m really enjoying them.

    Thank you so much for the chance.ReplyCancel

  • Heather BJune 17, 2014 - 11:39 am

    I have a great new book to suggest. I just finished reading Tyndale’s “The Wholehearted Wife: 10 Keys to a More Loving Relationship” by Erin, Greg and Gary Smalley. I highly recommend it – it’s inspirational and affirming! It’s about ten keys that can move us toward a more vibrant relationship, beginning with what we can influence and change – our own attitude and commitment as wives. I think it’s great if you’re married, engaged, thinking about getting married, or even including hubby. It says, “Build a firm spiritual foundation in your marriage before trials come your way. Wholeheartedly pursue God and His truth in all kinds of weather, not just when storms hit.” Hope you enjoy it as I have!ReplyCancel
