Melanie’s Currently Reading

April 2018

Little Town on the Prairie – The kids and I are continuing to enjoy this series!

God Has a Name – by John Mark Comer – Wow, what an eye opening read based on the verses in the Bible most quoted by the Bible (Exodus 34:6-8)

Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartian – I recently read this book and now am using it in my prayer times each day for the children.  So helpful in praying more specific prayers for them.

March 2018

The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder – I have been reading the Little House series to the middle 3 children and we are currently on this one, probably my favourite in the series. It’s been very atmospheric reading it in the winter time too, and especially during our own mini snowstorm!

Gods and Kings by Lynn Austin – First book in the Chronicles of the Kings series, biblical fiction which takes place in the time of King Ahaz and King Hezekiah.  Lynn Austin is one of Hannah’s favourite authors – I couldn’t put this one down and can’t wait to read the rest in the series.

The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom – What a treat to read this incredible story with my older 3 girls.  I have been waiting to read this with them for a long time!

Re-set – Living a Grace Paced Life in a Burn Out Cuture by David Murray – I listened to most of this on audio book during my trip to the USA and now Peter and I are listening to it together and discussing it, bit by bit.  It’s such a wise and practical read.

January 2018

Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery (the 8th and last book in the Anne of Green Gables series. I can’t believe I never read these as a girl.  They are Hannah’s favourites, so I started the series last year.  Wow, such wonderful books!)
