Thankful Thursday - The Ministry of Books


I'm so thankful for the books that have ministered to me over the years.  I've written about books before on my blog, but have never made a list of those most dear to me. So, here you go, dear Gail-Friends.

In my childhood, I was a total bookworm:

The Bible
365 Bedtime Stories
Five Little Peppers and How They Grew
Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Heidi
The Boxcar Children
Tom Sawyer
Huckleberry Finn
The Biography of Julliet Lowe (I was a Girl Scout)
The Biography of Florence Nightingale (I wanted to be a nurse after reading this one.)
The Secret Garden

As A Teenager, (I didn't read as much):

The Bible
Christian Girls' Problems (This book is ridiculed today.)
Little Women
The Diary of Anne Frank
Mrs. Mike

As an Adult:

Non-Fiction (my favorite reading material)

The Bible
Streams in the Desert
The Biography of George Mueller
Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman
Silver Boxes
See You  At The Top
Come Away, My Beloved
God Calling
A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23
Walking Through the Fire
The Hiding Place
One Day At A Time in Al-Anon (I grew up in alcoholism.)
The Big Book of AA
Codependent No More
Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No, to Take Control of Your Life 
Liberated Through Submission: God's Design for Freedom in All Relationships
Our Father Abraham: Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith
The Genesis Diet
How Should We Then Live? The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture 
100 Days of Blessings Vol. 1 and 2
The Artists Way 

Fiction:
Redeeming Love
The Zion Chronicles
The Anne of Green Gables Series
The Help

The graphic below is just so totally me.  At Golden Cottage, we have books in ever room.  I like it that way because books minister to me just by sitting on the shelf.  I love seeing them.


I'd love to hear about your favorite books.
