Last night I was doing some Random Blogging (see that red arrow to the top right – it wil open up the homeschool blogging world to you as you meet new friends.  I recommend it!)  Anyways, in my travels last night I came across  Peculiar People and she made me think of the books on my shelves.

She asked the question "What books have you read that have enhanced your walk with the Lord, and your outlook on life? " 


I love it how my bookshelf shows my life growing; it shows all the areas that I have studied in (through necessity or passion.)  These are my top picks: 

Two books that have really impacted my life this year are:

·          Sabbath Keeping – finding freedom in the rhythms of rest by Lynne M. Baab

·          Making Room for Life by Randy Frazee

Titles that have impacted me since my late teens:

·          The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer

·          Becoming a woman of Excellence by Cynthia Heald

·          The Family Manager by Kathy Peel

·          Many titles written by Emily Barnes

·          The Pleasure of your company – by Dale Garratt

For Homeschooling, the books that have impacted me the most are:

·          For the Children’s Sake by Susan Schaeffer McCauley

·          I saw the Angel in the Marble by Chris and Ellyn Davis

·          Educating the Whole Hearted Child by Clay and Sally Clarkson

·          Wisdom’s Way of Learning by Marilyn Howshall

·          Many titles written by Ruth Beechick

·          Many titles written by Cindy Rushton

Living Books I’ve learnt from:

·          Pooh Bear (Is that a living book – or just a a great read??? LOL)

·          Brother Andrew (Teenage version of God’s Smuggler

·          Francine Rivers Books
