My Favorite Books

Yay, hooray for you!  You've found your way to one of my very favorite pages on my blog. 

This is where I list my favorite books! 

Aside from the obvious--scriptures--there are two types of books that I enjoy and that you will find listed here.

The first are books that have been helpful to me during the various chapters of my life. Normally these are true stories or how-to books!

The second type are children's books that have nurtured me as a kid or that I have grown to love and use to nurture my own children.

The best kinds of books are those that help me to grow and become wiser as a whole person, and those that can be shared with a child.  Kudos to books that do both!
