    Extravagant Fire Sue Sinclair (Freedom Publishing, 2020) This is a powerful testimony of the amazing journey of an ordinary woman set apart for such a time as this. Through the power of the Holy Spirit she has accomplished more than she ever hoped or imagined (a ministry ...

    Choose Life Simon Guillebaud (Monarch, 2014) For 2022, I’m re-reading this book of daily reflections. It seems perfect for me right now, as Simon Guillebaud seems to be speaking right into the issues I’m dealing with. I whizzed through the book last summer for the Woman Alive ...

    Recital of Love Keren Dibbens-Wyatt (Paraclete Press, 2020) This book reminded me of the writings of Julian of Norwich, the anchorite nun who lived in Norwich. Keren’s writing is beautiful in the mystic tradition. Each thought is usually only a page or two so the book lends ...

    The Emotionally Healthy Woman Geri Scazzero (Zondervan, 2014) I read this book while I was bringing up our kids. It really helped me to meet God daily on a deeper level through listening to him using ancient Christian practices like lectio divina. It also got me thinking ...

    If Prison Walls Could Speak Richard Wurmbrand (Living Sacrifice, 2011) Richard Wurmbrand was imprisoned twice for being a Christian. This book is an education into human evil; how he suffered is staggering. It’s a series of sermons that he composed “on the verge of insanity”. Yet his ...

    The Tattooist of Auschwitz Heather Morris (Zaffre, 2018) I accepted this book from a neighbour, thinking: “Well, if it’s too heart-wrenching, I don’t have to read it.” And it wasn’t. Although it was desperately sad, the author didn’t dwell on the horrors. Heather Morris was asked to ...
