My Favorite Reads of 2012

28 Dec
I absolutely love to read.
I read everything I can get my hands on.
From fiction to non fiction.
From leadership to love in action.
From motherhood to ministry.

I wanted to share some of my favorite reads from this year.
I tried very hard to limit the list to only ten books, but couldn’t do it 
as there were so many excellent books that I read this year.

So here is my list (in no particular order).

Undaunted by Christine Caine

One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

Love Does by Bob Goff

Deep & Wide by Andy Stanley

Greater by Steven Furtick

The Cause Within You by Matthew Barnett

You’re Already Amazing by Holley Gerth

Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar

Abba’s Child by Brennan Manning

Grace for the Good Girl by Emily P. Freeman

Everything by Mary DeMuth

Empty Promises by Pete Wilson

One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer

A Confident Heart by Renee Swope

Love Works by Joel Manby

Chronicles of the Kings Series

What are some of your favorite reads this year?

    Part of my New Years Resolution is to read more books and more quality books. Thanks for the suggestions and thanks for linking up for Flash Blog Friday 🙂

    Oooooh I'm so glad to have this list! I need new material this year! I hope most of these are available on a Kindle….? For a while I stopped reading for pleasure and would only read "How to" books: How to be a good mom, How to raise a family, How do deal with a difficult child, How to homeschoool, etc (not actual titles, just the content example!) and about two years ago I made a New Year's Resolution: to read for ENJOYMENT and ENTERTAINMENT like I used to! Every since then, I've been enjoying about two or three books per month. Fiction. Just for entertainment. My busy mommy mind needs the escape, LOLLove your list. Thanks for sharing :)Katrina @ They All Call Me Mom
